Windows 10 out now!

But for me, not today:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/07...iver_conflict/

I'm running multiple monitors with a new Nvidia gfx card as of last month. Waiting while those in a rush get on with testing it for me. I will definitely upgrade, just not quite yet.

Excellent

I know other people who have reported nothing but good things. I'm glad I waited because my specific setup may have been problematic.

Re: Windows 10 out now!

Did they change the interface at all from 8? I'm not on Windows but my wife is, windows 8, and all she does is complain. Its her own fault but she's just not willing to learn to play well with the new design.

Re: Windows 10 out now!

yes they basically realized their interface sucked ass and they changed everything, trying to do a sort of "in-between" that's really a "sorry we fucked up but we won't fully admit it either" kind of deal

If you have more than a handful of items installed, Win 8 is very painful. The Win 8.1 interface is slightly better but not massively.

Win 10 returns some elements of the Start Menu and is supposed to change the interface depending on the way you are using it i.e. if you're on a tablet its supposed to detect it and switch to big fat buttons but if plug in a mouse and keyboard it is supposed to switch to a more menu-y + desktop method.

There are still some privacy issues to be aware of within Win 10 - e.g. it can potentially share WiFi passwords where you don't want to unless you are vigilant about WiFi options.

People flipping shit over the lack of 8's start menu is still the funniest thing since sliced poo. Can't wait to try 10. Woooo

I would like to thank Microsoft for making their shit backwards compatible.

Somebody in there believes it's a good thing and that's good.

I skipped upgrading to 8 cause I hated the interface and didn't want to spend the money. Are there any major differences between 7 and 10?

Re: Windows 10 out now!

yea loads
main ones being the start menu is so so much better.
Its a mash up of windows 8 and 7 in one start menu but it just works.
cortana for the best part is so so good.
directx 12 gives you way way better graphics performance overall. Also leets you run a amd gpu and a nvidia gpu in one system like this.

Was it the missing start menu or something else? I'm not asking in a trolling manner, I'm just curious.

Thanks I guess I may as well upgrade considering they're offering it for free

Watch out for WUDO.

Windows updates are cached locally on your PC and then shared to other users. This feature is on by default so you may want to switch it off to stop it from using your precious bandwidth. Its in Advanced Options under Windows Update.

Re: Windows 10 out now!

i honestly don't want the start menu back or a start screen.

just gimme a search that pops up when I hit the win key. that's literally how I use win8.1 now, I never use my mouse on the start screen, I just type what I want.

anyway I only have one computer and I don't feel like dealing with that shit on my only machine right now.
