Windows 10?


#1

There should be a software enthusiasts sub category. Anywho, I am still rolling with Windows 7 and continually get the windows 10 upgrade notice forever showing up. Should I just go a head and upgrade or should I keep windows 7? I know there are many people here who are smarter than I when it comes to all things computer so I need your advice on whether to upgrade or hold out for now.


#2

I, myself, have not upgraded. I have secondhand heard some terrifying tales from RikkAnderson about his upgrade-then-rollback experience due to things still not being awesome with 10. >.> But I’m personally hilariously change-resistant for a techy lady.


#3

I was upgraded by force when we got these lovely new rigs and honestly I love it. Zero issues so far and from my not super enthusiast point of view it is basically identical to Windows 7 with regards to ease of use and finding what I want. I recommend the upgrade personally.

I upgraded as soon as I got the chance, because I didn’t want to have to deal with windows 8.1 anymore. I really have had very little issues. I recently had to do a little bit of tweaking, because enough though windows said “your firewall settings are being managed by kaspersky” windows firewall shut off my logitech gaming software. So I had to put a stop to that.

The only minor issue I had when I upgraded is that I have a 3 TB drive, so when I upgraded I had to reinstall the driver/software that I had a full 3 TB drive. So there was some mild panic at first right after the upgrade, but it wasn’t really a big deal.

I had some real problems with my razor naga having USB issues but I’m pretty sure that was a mouse issue.

Shen has refused to upgrade from windows 7 due to security concerns and other problems that windows 10 is still having.

Just upgrade, it’s not a big deal. Been using it since insider preview and I’ve had zero issues.


#6

This is what I will probably do. I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t some issue I didn’t know about that would cause my computer to blow up or keep my games from working.


#7

it was more stable in beta and now it may crash your computer.


#8

I’ve had zero problems running it at home and work. Then again, I am smarter than the average computer user. 7 times out of 10 this applies:


#9

That may be the most vague and fear mongering statement I’ve ever read. Trump is that you?


#10

This. Going to rock Windows 7 until Obama forces Windows 10 upon me. I’ve had zero issues with Windows 7 and see absolutely no reason to change. If Microsoft hadn’t discontinued support for XP, I would still be running a 64 bit installation to this day.

how did you know :^) jk feel the bern 2k16


#12

I’m kind of in blendor’s camp, 7 works just fine for me, I long ago disabled the advertisement to update to 10, I feel no real drive to upgrade.


#13

I just got force-upgraded to Windows 10 without my permission.

I am furious.

Also, since apparently so many of y’all are already on the mobile is the new desktop plan, if I just suck it up and deal with it instead of rolling back as I currently plan to do once I am no longer fuming, what do I need to do to protect my privacy or other likely inane settings that are automatically selected without my consent?


#14

Maybe this?

I always refer to these as PICNIC errors.
