Why wait for Wind 10 before downloading it to make sure the bugs have been all been corrected when updates will take care of bugs?

You say why wait. That's as opposed to what? You can still sign up for the Insider Preview and download the 10162 ISO, install it in a VM or separate partition, and examine it for yourself if that's your preference. This build is not going to be the RTM one, but it's only a few days old, so it's close. It's not 100% bug free but then the RTM version won't be either. When Windows has hundreds of thousands of instructions, there's no way for MS to've tested all possible combinations of hardware and software on 2.5 billion computers.
Personally while I've installed the preview version, there's nothing I've seen in Windows 10 that would make me want to convert my main Windows 7 systems to 10. If you're looking for more info, you could read the FAQ here:

There certainly is no need to download it immediately: Microsoft offers it free for a current Windows 7, 8 or 10 users for a whole yera.
It's totally up to you to decide if you want it and when you want it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
