I havent looked at Win 10 yet, but my wife apparently sent the request for the free upgrade which sucks because when Win 8.1 came out it fucked up a lot of computers. We all know they will release it way to soon with a million bugs. Neutral

I upgraded my new laptop from 8.1 to 10.  It was a painless install, no issues with the download either. I like that the Start menu is back, still a bit of a mess with the tiles but it doesn't take long to clean up.  I didn't mind the 8/8.1 "metro" screen, so far no complaints, all my games still work. Shocked   I'm going to try upgrading my 8 yr old laptop later today to see if that goes as smoothly.  If not then I'll toss Ubuntu on it.

The Cortana feature is nice but I'll need to use it more to see if it is worth it.

The new browser is better than IE but I don't see myself using that over Firefox or Chrome.

Last bit that I checked out was the new Settings screen.  I think that it is cleaner than the old Control Panel, easy to find and change settings.  Lots of setting to change, but not overly complicated.  

So far it looks like Microsoft did fairly well with 10.

I like it. Upgraded from 8.1 to 10 a few days ago. Free upgrade. No problems with the upgrade process.

Took less than an hour. Way to go Microsoft! They've come a long way in 20 years. I remember Windows 3.1, which used to take forever to to install. Very Happy



I have Windows 7 at work and used to have 8.1 at home before the upgrade.

CCleaner (free version) has a new box under the Windows tab to remove the old windows installation. For me, that freed up about 20 GB of space on my hard drive.

https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

I chose a custom installation and didn't add a lot of the bells and whistles, as I like a lean and mean system with little bloat, using the programs I like.

Windows 10 is pretty darn fast, which may just be just because it's a fresh install, though.

I like the GUI, but VMMV.

Never gonna get it.

Gonna switch to linux once 7 dies.

The whole freenium style they are heading for, is gonna be completely terrible in a few years.

Ads everywhere, that can't be removed, pay walls to do basicely anything. People already prooved theres a code already in place to allow microsoft to remotely lock applications they want to lock.

They don't like chrome? guess it's locked. And so forth. Either way, Linux.

I still don't like the sound of Windows 10...

But I am interested to hear about DX12 and it's application towards gaming. However, there are no DX12 games yet anyway, so meh.

If you are going to go to Windows 10, you seriously need to read the above articles or else Microsoft will own you ...

Thanks for that, Bekah! I just did the update and dig it so far. I trust I will dig it even more now that I know Microsoft isn't compiling a list of all the...ummm....cat videos...I am watching.

I upgraded a few days ago. I don't like it.

However apparently missed the tiny little fine print that said "When you upgrade you can't revert back "

So.. $%@!

If I had Win 8/8.1 I probably would have upgraded because 8/8.1 well deserves its awful reputation and anything would be better. However I have 7 and I like 7. From what I've seen of 10 it has all those tiles that are only good on a touchscreen and other crap I didn't like about 8. I'll be one of those holdouts on 7 until absolutely forced to switch (and maybe they'll have something better than 10 by then).

If you check the fine print Microsoft reserves the right to monitor everything from your individual keystrokes to your emails and pass said information on to "trusted 3rd parties". They also made it a huge pain in the ass to opt out of and retain (supposed) privacy. So I won't be using it.

I got a little trigger happy with the 'turning all the things OFF to keep those snooping bastards out' and now my audio doesn't work! Laughing Fucks sake, man.

When googling for a solution, I found a video on youtube. Neutral Neutral A video.

Anyhow. XD

It might be the voice activated cortana thing messing with your audio?

I did not activate Cortana, because I dont' need that bitch "helping". But that might be it though. Maybe my audio is fucked up because I didn't active her? Ooo that will irritate me! I will keep googling.

Have you checked your sound devices and the likes? It doesn't so much sound like a windows ten problem, more a different driver or the likes been chosen to play the sound, right click on speakers, playback devices and fiddle around in there. I've had the problem pounce on me ever since vista.

Sorry I should have seen this earlier Toastini. I had the same problem. It's apparently a common bug with Windows 10 when upgrading, my audio just completely stopped working when I plugged in headphones, after messing with stuff neither my headphones or speakers would work. I had to completely uninstall all of my audio drivers and then restart my computer so that it reinstalled the necessary drivers. That's supposed to fix the issue, but I had to something else as well, just can't remember what it was. Try the uninstall and reinstall of your audio drivers and let me know if you still have a problem.

Go to Settings > Update and Security > Recovery > Go Back to Windows 8.1

It says you have a 1 month window to go back to 8.1.

Windows Ten's been automatically updating drivers for most of everything, early on there were a few nivida GPU users that had their system fecking up, due to the OS downloading a faulty update - had downloaded it myself on Windows 8.1, fecked me there as well -. So there's going to be a few bumps in the road from my view point.
