As far as I know, there is no issue regarding ZTree compatibility with Win10.

Also, you are not forced to upgrade if you don't want to.

Personnaly, I'll probably wait some weeks or even months before doing so, just to let the usual release issues be solved.

I installed a beta version of Win10. Things didn't change much in desktop mode, apart icons and control panel. Hard disk footprint will be smaller than previous versions and memory consumption hasn't change much.

As for the new features, you can ignore most of them. Cortona, for instance, won't even be available in canadian edition. New Start menu ? Just install the free ClassicStart replacement. Metro apps? Much better integration but still so few to choose from. Spartan browser ? I'll continue with Chrome. Revamp Mail and Calendar ? I don't use them anyway.

Yet, upgrade let you benefit from better cloud integration and latest security enhancements.
