Personally - still staying well away from it. Spent too much time fixing up issues when it first came out and cant see the point  / benefit for a business. 

Clients - finding that Microsoft Edge doesn't work well. It fails with lots of sites such as log me in remote. Has a situation yesterday where it wouldn't even download and run the Logmein client either - had to change browser, download by hand

Clients not liking the new Start Menu

For us - still a big NO!!

Others?

Look at the latest changes:

 

https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2016/12/07/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-14986-pc/#33AzYRX0s3RafeW1.97

 

Will be interesting to see whether they follow through and fix up the DPI mess when it comes to the traditional win32 components. There is mention of the following:

 

"[ADDED 12/9] Improved high DPI support for desktop apps: Your feedback is important to us, and a few months ago, we shared a discussion about the progress we’d made to high DPI scaling in the Anniversary Update. With the release of Build 14986 to Windows Insiders, we’re very excited to share the next part in that story. Windows Insiders with high DPI devices, such as the Surface Book, will now see improved crispness in the text of a number of desktop applications that previously would display blurry – in particular Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap ins like Device Manager. This story has yet another chapter, so keep an eye out for more on this subject in future flights."

 

Because what really holds back Windows 10, at least from a Mac user perspective, is the lack of polish and focus on ensuring there is a great UI experience rather than right now where the UWP applications look fabulous but lacking in features but win32 applications looking at though they've been hit by an ugly stick - Explorer.exe and its mishmash mess of icons etc. being the prime example of that.

 

Edit: Screenshot of the improved DPI on the latest build when using MMC based applications:

 





Laptop: MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
Desktop: iMac (27-inch, 2017)
Smartphone: iPhone XS Max 256GB
Additional devices: Unifi Security Gateway, Unifi Switch, Unifi AP AC HD, Unifi Cloud Key
Services: YouTube Premium, Wordpress, Skinny Mobile and Broadband, G Suite
