I just now updated to Windows 10 using the existing BootCamp drivers ...
Everything on the MacPro seems fine so far *except* the video drivers don't work (and apparently the dual FirePro setup in the MacPro is so specialized that even AMD's own brand-new Win10 drivers don't work either). So the only resolution available is 1920 x 1080, which looks stretched and horrible on my display -- bordering on unusable. Also, the BootCamp control panel is nowhere to be found, so rebooting into OS X might required the option key at restart ...
Other than that, everything else seems to work okay so far, but I'm gonna stay away until Apple releases updated drivers =)

Yes, one of the trashcan MacPros =)
From the reviews I've read, most are recommending updating to 10, since it does represent a definite improvement over 7 and 8 in many respects, but waiting to do so for a few months while MS works-out all the bugs people are finding. (Some suggest that the staged rollout is not only for logistic purposes, but so that MS could roll it out to the geeky crowd first and essentially post-beta test things before releasing it to the madding crowds).
Obviously as regards BootCamp, much depends on Apple and how it rolls-out drivers. My guess is that it'll wait until things become a bit more stable on MS's side of things. So we probably won't see a revised BootCamp for a few months. (I think support for 8 took, what, six months or something?)
Anyways, fun to play with, since I don't do any mission-critical stuff in windows on this machine =)
Heh ... the suggestion I've seen most regarding the "Something Happened" error is that people get it when they try to upgrade their "less than authentic" Windows install. It would be a fun gotcha from MS if that were the case (but, really, it's probably just an incredibly unhelpful error message =P)
Windows 10 includes a new feature called Wi-Fi Sense, which is making some folks uneasy. Wi-Fi Sense allows you to automatically log your friends onto your Wi-Fi network without ever giving them your password. It's a convenient solution to the awkward "what's your Wi-Fi password?" conversations.
Not sure what to think of this...could be bad, could be good.
