Will I have any issues with Win 10?

Want to get a new PC. A more than efficient one from Newegg. They all use Windows 10 I think.

I have my Cubase 5. One thing I might upgrade or transfer to another DAW. Maybe Reason. Being able to use VSTs now is interesting. But the Cubase design is what I'm used to.

I have Komplete 8, Waves Platinum and Ozone 4 in box.

Re: Will I have any issues with Win 10?

My experiences with Win 10 has lead me to believe it's a piece of data-mining shit that I now won't touch with a ten foot pole. I tried it when it was first offered for free, but quickly became pissed off with the constant updates that were going on in the background without notice.

It connects to MS at will, regardless of if you tell it to or not..settings you choose are reset when it updates..again, without telling you. Mind you, all of these things may very well have been changed by now, but I just don't trust MS any more..they seem to have their eye on the Apple way of doing things..which is not something I feel like supporting or being a part of.

Personally, I would suggest you get a copy if Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and use that as the OS for your studio system and make sure you don't go online with it..carrying out any updates or installs to it via USB drive or CD, for security reasons.

Anyway, that's my advice to you..I'm sure others will reply telling you how great Windows 10 is..and others will post backing up what I've said..but in the end it's a call you'll have to make yourself..you'll either love it or hate it,,but you won't know which until you try it in an active production setting yourself..

Let us know here what you do and how you get on with it if you so. Best of luck.

Maybe i'll just keep on jizzing on my 2010 PC to make her happy. Still works just seems iffy. Sometimes have to restart to load all processes.

I hate that the OS is my greatest concern in a new super fast PC.

If one had no issue with WIN 10, I have hopes most will not.

I use Ableton and have Komplete 8 and had absolutely no problems whatsoever when I made the switch to Windows 10. So now there's two

Re: Will I have any issues with Win 10?

No real problems. It was rough going in beta and when it was first released but better now. The settings resetting thing is annoying and can still happen with updates. It likes to update, you can't pick and choose updates as they're bulk delivered and it's very difficult to keep the updates from happening so save your work and don't plan on your computer never restarting - Microsoft will do it for you.

But 10 is stable, has plenty of useful tools and a smooth user experience. It's not vastly different than 7 to be honest. I'm rather used to it now. But you've got 2.5 years left of Windows 7 if you'd rather use that. There's certainly nothing wrong with it.

Re: Will I have any issues with Win 10?

If I get a new PC I'll install everything I have BOXED. Then upgrade anything free?

I guess that the only thing I'm worried about.
