I installed 10 on my mum's laptop. She only uses it for browsing – privately hosted webmail, facebook, pinterest, gumtree, not much else – and for some basic MS Office work. I turned all 13 pages of privacy switches to "off" (i.e. do not share), and I'm relatively comfortable with her using IE, the built-in firewall and AV, and auto updates, so yeah.

For our own machines, i.e. mine, ShyShy's and ShyShy Jr's? No fucking way are we installing 10. When I install Windows, I immediately turn off updates and install ZoneAlarm free firewall. There's no chance in hell that I'm going to trust MS with unavoidable auto updates. We'll stick with 7 for the foreseeable future.
