  • Use this forum to ask questions related to Windows 10. Remember, Windows 10 and Windows 10 SDK has not yet been released.

    After that, .NET framework and Windows 10 applications are totally a different concept. .NET framework is a framework installed not only on Windows (since it is open-sourced and ready to be deployed on Linux, Mac, Ubuntu etc.) where as Windows 10 uses Windows Runtime APIs and a new platform for application development, Universal Application Platform

    You need to first understand the difference between them. .NET apps require .NET framework in order to run, where as Windows 10 has the core APIs already set up and ready to be used for the applications. Uap applications require Windows 10 and Visual Studio 2015 for development, .NET apps can be developed using Visual Studio (any version) and Windows (any version). There are quite other IDEs that you can use now, since .NET Core is open-source. 

    I hope that helps you out. :)

  • Since Windows 10 is not a complete operating system for now, will my project have any conflicts?

    I'd ask that over here.

  • Hello, Windows 10 (x64) runs better than Windows 7 x (x64) .. So I'm pretty sure that Windows 10 (x64) will do a better job :) If you try, you will not go wrong :)
