Migrating Xbox Gamertags is a mess, and a problem for Windows 10

Microsoft wants to create a seamless ecosystem with all of their devices with Windows 10. A few issues with the way it handles account management, however, could seriously derail some plans.

Windows 10... YAWN! Will wait a month or two for some of the bugs to get squashed.

Same. People who are installing Windows 10 at launch must have balls of steel, or the desire to have something shiny and new is overriding common sense? They're definitely brave, that's for sure.

Still, if it goes smoothly then good for them, but I can't bring myself to risk any issues so early in the life of the OS. I'll be waiting to see what the state of it is at the end of the year.

I did my gaming PC, my work PC, and my phone about 4 months ago. I've got vibranium balls and an uncommon lack of sense. The phone was a disaster though lol.

It has been in beta for a while now everything seems to be working fine for me. Not sure on when the spartan/edge browser will get its extension support though.

multiboot setup. If Win10 isn't stable enough, I'll just boot my Win8 partition until there's some updates, but as of now it's working just fine.

I just cloned my os drive rather than do the dual boot in case of Win 10 issues, still waiting for my upgrade though (cba to force it manually :D)

@Lon3wolf that's a great idea. Do you know if your win7 license is still supported? Also what's cba?

I haven't installed it on my desktop yet, but have on my laptop. Much, much better than 8.1. No issues yet.

I have a backup image pre-install so I don't worry about trying it. It's working very well for me in everything I've done so far so I installed it on my laptop as well. It's better than 8.1 if that's what you're stuck with. And I'd say probably better than 7.

And that's why I'm waiting a few months before I upgrade to Windows 10.

If referring to the article Not sure if really a windows 10 issue (edit:existing issue from 2011?) but more about account-management thing of their outlook/hotmail/live accounts.
Currently you can still change/ad other accounts to your device or your mail applications in windows 10.
He isn't able to migrate his xbox gamer tag to another account due to some issues mentioned in article. My own old hotmail account with my gamertag luckily did transfer after I changed that to my main account a few years ago.
Having one single account for the device and over all the different windows 10 apps does make it a more seemless experience.
