[chirp_users] Windows 10 and CHIRP

I'm curious whether anyone has yet tested Chirp with Windows 10?  Or 
determined if anything about Windows 10 such as its security systems 
would get in the way of the common practice of using an old version of 
the Prolific software driver.Or, for that matter, any other specific 
compatibility issues with common Ham computer applications.

As many of you are likely aware, Microsoft is taking the unusual step 
(for them) of providing a FREE upgrade from Windows 7sp1 or Win8.1 
computers (for consumers anyway) to Win10.  Indeed, by now you may have 
already seen a new icon show-up in the lower right corner of your 
computer encouraging you to make a "reservation" for this upgrade when 
it becomes generally available on July 29.  That free upgrade is only 
available for a year.  If you haven't upgraded by then, your out-of-luck 
unless you wish to pay.

The rub, of course, is what gets "broken" by this upgrade.  For the 
average user, I'm guessing not much.  But us hams tend to have some 
esoteric needs...
