Dear Thea users,

To better assist us with your user experience with Thea Render we are updating the OS poll to review the current map of operating systems being used with our software.

As Windows 7 and 8/8.1 owners can now shift to Windows 10 for free, we believe the landscape of Microsoft OS ownership will rapidly change.

Your participation in this poll is greatly appreciated as this will assist us in making the necessary steps to improve the quality of our software but also to determine how to best integrate new features for the platform.

We look forward to your response!

Sincerely,
Anthony

I feel its irresponsible to shift for win10 this early. I ussually wait a year before i upgrade to the next OS version. So i guess i'll leave it to the last minute before upgrading. If at all. win8.1 is pretty good for me.

I have switched to Windows 10 since Insider Preview and I have had no issues. As far as an upgrade from Windows 8, I'm never looking back.

10 is better than 7 with means it's way better than 8. Even looks better. My desktop doesn't feel a phone anymore...

Unfortunately I cannot modify phpBB for double vote. I would suggest to select the operating system that represents your main OS.

Edit: sorry bout the mistake. I have fixed this
