Default Windows 10

caved in and installed to try out.

what a pile of spytastic pish. just spent the past day turning off everything that is not needed.

talk about slooooow at shutting down and starting up, win7 is a good 5 times faster.

there are a few things i like but mostly its filled with bloatware.

installed 'classic shell' and things look much much better and easier to navigate

I've never had an OS start up or shut down quicker than 10. Did you do a fresh install, or upgrade from 7?

The auto updates p me off. Especially when you want to do a quick restart and it starts installing them without asking

Seeker you can remove the advert tiles

No problems with it
Yes there's Lots of thing's to un tick.
But both our I7 processor and the AMD older Bulldozer run it fine.

Good move - even the cute Penguin logo is better than windows shyte logo.

I used to be engineering manager in a large automated warehouse that ran on Linux, it ran very well and bulletproof stability, but I hate to think what it would have been like using any Microsoft product (I guess the complaints department would have been busy).

Microsoft and Google are better at spying than MI5, MI6, GCHQ, CIA and FBI put together.

installed to a raid 0 partition and its a lot faster now. easy dual boot as well top tip, although microsoft say that the free upgrade is finished its technically not, you can still upgrade using your old key from say win7 but you must instal the exact same equivelent OS. so if your using say win7 pro 64 you must install win10 pro 64 and you must do a fresh instal.

what i did like is the way microsoft will install the boot media straight to a thumb drive over the internet. it even works off usb3 thumb drives on usb3 ports

not tried installing on the 'kodi' compluter i built with NVMe drive to see if it has the built in drivers to recognises the drive during instal

i'm testing a workaround just now that will let you choose updates just like win7. its in the admin templates.

My wife has a Windows 10 work laptop which only gets used for occasional presentations.
It hadn't been out of its case for a couple of months so I got the job of making sure it was all updated and ready to go ahead of a forthcoming important presentation.
She didn't want it going into update mode and being rendered useless at a critical moment...
It took two full days including an overnight to get all the updates done.

I've been using W10 since the Beta and love it.
You pretty much need an SSD to reap the speed benefits though. On an SSD it's faster than Ubuntu that I have as a dual boot, in fact I hardly use Ubuntu, all the stuff people moan about you can turn off, I just leave it on though.

Not used windows since XP but recently bought a win10 tablet. Can't install Linux due to the non-standard hardware.

Gotta admit, I like it. It runs well on hardware I would normally have considered underspec'ed. That's a first for windows.

The defaults are a bit stupid and it takes ages to go through all the settings to get things the way I like, but this takes longer due to unfamiliarity and you can't just copy over config files like in linux.

For a sub-200 machine, I'm blown away tbh.

Oh and the best thing? It can run bash!
