What's your opinion of Windows 10?
I upgraded to it using the free download then bought a new computer with Windows 10 already installed-- the personal use version, not the more expensive version for business use. I was wondering what others thought about the operating system.
Don't have to. Version 7, 8, 9 and 10 are all basically the same. What most people don't know is that it still contains bits and pieces of the old DOS-core, and that is why it is inferior compared to Linux.
Ten is noticeably different to me. It's app-driven, if I'm saying that correctly.
It isn't a very insightful answer indeed. Jill can always delete it if she wants.
I agree that Windows was really a "johnny-come-lately" OS that made an IBM-based computer work like a Mac. Unfortunately, the majority wants "point and click" convenience & can't handle Linux.
Thanks for clarifying, Joe. I readily admit that I am not a computer expert but someone who uses computers as a tool and appreciates user friendliness. All the best, Jill
I build websites, Jill, and most of my clients want an easy to edit product. That's why Windows is the default OS. Of all the Windows versions, XP is still the best, but now obsolete, Hence 10...
I was referring to my own answer in response to Joe, Jill. I realize that you thought I was referring to your answer. Sorry for this miscommunication. I assume this is how misconceptions arise in communications.
Jill, I have three computers and have upgraded two of them to Windows 10 and left the third in Windows 7 as a control. I would not use Windows 8 after I test-drove it on my wife's machine. There are still some bugs, but that is to be expected. When a new OS comes out, there will be constant updates that will eventually end up as Service Pack 1 or something similar.
Overall, I am impressed by Windows 10. It brings many improvements to the table, such as the "store" where one can fond free apps to replace the "in system" apps if you aren't happy with them. I've done that with several.
As far as navigation, the travesty of Windows 8 has disappeared and the interface is back to user friendly. Looks like it will be a good move for Microsoft.
Hi Joe. I agree it's a good move for Microsoft. I'd like to try the business version, which I'm thinking wouldn't have so many gaming apps & other timewasters already loaded onto it. You were wise to keep a "control" computer. You never know!
I removed several apps that were "family candy" and installed several apps from the store to test drive. My Office 2010 Pro loaded with no problems and seems to be running fine.

I have been using Microsoft OS since the days of MS DOS and there was no UI. When Windows 3.1 came out I thought that was quite a unique change and it made me not have to remember all those command codes. Then Windows 95 came out and I was happy but when Windows 98 came out I was elated! I only...

Is it worth upgrading to Windows 10? 7 is offering a free upgrade. What are the pros/cons?I'm not sure I want to take advantage of the offer. Has anyone tried Windows 10 yet? If so, what are your thoughts? I'm comfortable with Windows 7. Does the latest version provide a better user experience?...

So I've been getting the Windows 10 pop-ups for the last several months and I've been clicking the "no thanks" button on every one. This morning, I wiggled my trackball to wake my PC from sleep mode and fracking Windows 10 had installed itself and only needed me to press the accept or...

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10, I have been unable to create hubs or edit existing hubs. I have appealed to the Powers That Be at HP but they claim they are unable to replicate my problem. However, they refuse to confirm if they are testing on Windows 10 using an account that...

Now that official support had ended, do I really have to give up my old OS? Windows is very pushy about saying I should just buy a new computer, and not even bother upgrading, even though they also were very pushy about trying to get me to upgrade my existing system to Windows 10 for free a couple...
