>> No.56263954

Ugh. I have the displeasure of being forced to use it on my laptop (Linux incompatibility with my graphics driver).

Everything is just bulky and slow, compared to what I'm used to.

Startup time is garbage compared to what I'm used to.

I now have to restart my computer to install updates, which is retarded, and I also have to sit there and wait while it applies the updates instead of getting to use my computer while it applies the updates like what you can do on Linux.

I also have advertisements in the start menu, fuck that.

Security is a nightmare. I refuse to purchase anything online using W10.

Finally, fuck Cortana. If I wanted that a shit service like that I'd use the equally shitty Siri on iOS.

I've been running it for a few months, I get a problem every 2 days. After about 80 restores and 6 successful restores it's able to stay on for 30 minutes at a time before a "memory management error" or some various other error blue screens me (and again on reboot over and over) or by some miracle it makes it past boot up and a "remote procedure call failure" prevents me from doing anything else
Not to mention the CONSTANT driver incompatibilities and the forced updates always leaving programs dead

Heres an objective review of windows 10 from someone who would have stayed on windows 8.1 forever if it wasnt hard crashing a minute after booting.

>Even faster boot time, dont know how they did this, but win10 boots even faster than win8.1
>Loads apps faster after a boot, win8.1 had a minute delay for me after logging in and being able to load apps, win10 does away with that and as soon as im logged in I can launch anything
>More efficient use of space, the borders around windows are gone, sometimes it may look weird, but most of the time its a good way of saving a few pixels.
>Start menu is actually pretty nice. Looks better than classic shell on win8.1, but isnt as efficient, has a hard time finding files, some apps dont show up after being installed, not sure whats up. Fun to rearrange the tiles so it looks nice.
>4 way snap is awesome, enough said.
>2 way snap is improved, now if you snap two left and right, and adjust their size in the middle, both apps are dragged, in win8.1 you had to manually do it for each app.
>The whole re-imaging of the control panel is a pain in the ass. Constant gimped settings and even if you want to change "advanced settings" then it opens up the old control panel anyways.
>Similar to macs, theres a bunch of little annoying gimped settings. For example, back in win8.1 and before you could double click on the volume icon and open up the volume mixer, now you have to right click, took a few seconds to figure out theres no reason for them changing it.
>Updates havent gotten into my way yet. Set inactive hours from 10pm to 8am.
>Windows store is a fucking joke. Biggest fail ive ever seen. Literally nothing of value on it. Even core Microsoft applications like visual studio are nowhere to be found.
>Cortana is fucking useless and inneficient, just like every other voice to text program.

Overall not a bad OS, but not a big enough incentive to switch to it. Stay on win7/win8.1 unless somethings bugs you (like hard crashes in my case).
