Whoa, there! People may have different opinions about how quickly the Church should move to Windows 10, but so far the discussion has been respectful and I don't see why anyone should be labeled as a "hater". Let's all be kind in the ways we deal with people who have differing opinions.

I don't have an issue with any of the church sites yet on the Edge browser, but another browser could easily be installed. Has MLS been tested with Windows 10?
What about the FHC, has FamilySearch and other apps been tested?
I'm sure that the Church will move to Windows 10 eventually. But as someone who has worked through several cycles of OS version upgrades by the Church, I can testify that the Church is quite deliberate in these huge changes. The move to Windows 7, for example, came long after the initial release of Win7.
Changing the operating system for thousands of FHCs and tens of thousands of clerk computers is not something the Church will ever do lightly or quickly. It's far more important to the Church to keep all these computers working and provide good support than to be extremely prompt in upgrading to the latest version of the OS.
Upgrading the OS has the potential to cause all sorts of problems with printer drivers, scanner drivers, third-party apps, etc. I know that some FamilySearch testing for Windows 10 is underway, but there are many things to test. Let's all be patient as this testing takes place. Personally (and this is only my own guess) I would be very surprised if any move to Windows 10 happened in 2015.
