I have a question myself . if one buys a new computer under guarantee, and there are problems with the operating system, eg Windows 10 or whatever, is the retailer obliged to send a repair person to fix it? In other words, what comeback if any does one have?

None - manufacturer warranties are hardware only. The EULA of software pretty much excludes any form of liability for anyone

Seems like quite a few bugs in Windows 10. Luckily I haven't upgraded yet. I'll wait a few months before hitting the upgrade button me thinks.

Not for a new device it doesn't. You can't contract out of the CGA - even with a lengthy EULA. The Windows EULA for OEM (as opposed to retail versions) anyway placed an obligation for support on the system builder - which was always a bit of a grey area for retail sales of OEM versions, where the customer was the system builder.
If the OEM software supplied doesn't work on the device, then it's absolutely the hardware vendor's problem to sort out.
OTOH, if the hardware is claimed to work with W8, and won't work with W10, then it's not the hardware vendor's problem.
I presume that recent sales of PCs have had "Windows 10 ready" stickers etc on them or other such claims made, as was done with past new OS releases. In that case too - if win10 didn't work, you'd have every right to take the blardy thing back to the vendor for them to sort out or refund your $$$.

In summary, they give all your info to the Illuminati, so they can kill those who oppose them more efficiently when the New World Order begins. I'm only half kidding).
