*Puts on IT hat and glasses* This pisses me off because every operating system has had the capabilities of Win 10, except now people are better at finding the functions that give information(which can be turned off, and don't give me that "it's hard to do and hidden" bs because until you have used DOS or command line or searched through the BIOS of your computer and worked to remove malware from that, a few clicks and a google search is not hard) so they want to spread conspiracy and big brother theories. Win10 is an amazing operating system that was made because people needlessly hated 8 for its layout and wanted to move back to an inferior operating system(Win7, beautiful and great at the time) that is holding back development and costing a lot money for a lot of people. Now that people can't complain about the "tablet based" layout of 8, they look for a new fish to sink their hooks into. Sorry for the rant. *Takes of IT hat and glasses, pulls Janitor beanie back on.*
@NightShift Janitor, #Windows74life
@NightShift Janitor, yeah. I've never had issues with Win10. Works fine for me
@NightShift Janitor, Sometimes in a development environment, you want to stick with an old windows installation (compatibility with myriad things like servers, databases, etc.). But i agree, for most consumers, just upgrade to windows 10 already. Its great.
@NightShift Janitor, I think the issue is, Win10 is having compatibility issues with peoples PC. My PC is pretty up to date and I havent had any issues with 10. But my friends with some older PCs are having theirs crash or are being slow when it never did before.
@NightShift Janitor, not so fun fact. I set up my old computer that had windows 10 since I built my own and when it was all set up they asked about the Webcam on their monitor so I look back and plug it in the USB and it crashes the entire operating system 3 times. I unplugged it and it was fine.
@NightShift Janitor, I've tried windows 10 twice, and it seemed perfect at first, I loved it. But over time, I have no idea why, but my computer kept getting slower and slower (almost certain it wasn't a virus). My hardware, aside from my motherboard and graphics card, is extremely old haha. I have nothing against windows 10, but it just doesn't run efficiently on my PC. I ended up switching back to 7 both times, fresh install each time
@NightShift Janitor, also some software hasn't updated, and crash or bug with win10
@irishdude, I think people hate on Windows 10 because it's "cool" to hate on big companies like Microsoft. No matter how good the product is, people hated on the Xbox 360, like how?!
@NightShift Janitor, my only issue I've had is that since downloading it my computer takes about 25 minutes to boot up sometimes
@That NPC With Advice, There are a lot of reasons to hate the 360. I think people like to fanboy over big companies like Microsoft because a lot of people hate them
@irishdude, That's what the government/Windows 10 wants you to think.
@NightShift Janitor, only issue I had with 10 is that my drawing software is incompatible with it. That being said I have Windows 10 on my laptop and it is wonderful. An 11 year old laptop should not be this fast!
@NightShift Janitor, I've had nothing BUT problems with windows 10. I gave have a computer built in 2015 and I upgraded to 7 home premium because it had 10 on it. After the forced update EVERYTHING keeps crashing and im about to upgrade to 7 again. And yes I mean upgrade cause 10 is trash.
@irishdude, I had some issues in the beginning but it's fine now.
@NightShift Janitor, agreed, windows 10 is fine for me. Cortana pissed me off, but that got disabled, so it's okay now. (Still preferred windows 7, but I'm no coder or anything so I can't say from any stand point other than a general user)
@irishdude, Windows 10 is fine but when someone upgrades their virus infested computer that hasn't been formatted in five years, they're gonna have a bad time.
@Horse Lime, Did you try the advanced compatibility modes for your software? Or did it not even let it install?
@Ze Grammar Nazi, Built mine 2012 and never had a problem with Win10, so don't know what to say other than there are too many variables to name Win10 as the primary culprit. Win10 is a stable operating system, but the problem arises from other programs interact with it. There will of course be some cases where Win10 nose dives after a fresh install just as every operating system ever has done before. One of the problems is that so many programs are jury rigged to work in the first place that when the framework comes in, everything wrong with them gets brought up because they are meant to work(through roundabout programming) with established operating systems and the new one simply doesn't let the brute force tricks work or isn't equipped to work with the trick and in the attempt to stop/work/ignore the programs it kills it. Never be so close minded on a matter just because you experienced some bad times regarding it. The Moral is Win10 isn't for everybody/every rig as people wants it.
@DeadStroke, I took prefer windows 1974. My new monitor has a pixel density of around 200 ppi, it's like looking at real life
@NightShift Janitor, Honestly, I think the biggest issue was how they chose to advertise and distribute the OS. Harassing people incessantly through their current OS. And for a while they had a "bug" with their updates that just ninja-installed Windows 10. I think that the OS is fine, I think their methods were repugnant and dishonorable.
@NightShift Janitor, I bought my PC with Windows 8 on it, The Free Windows 10 upgrade made my hole weak I mean whole week
@irishdude, my roommate has a problem with his. Windows 10 does this thing where it will use up all of your excess RAM, and then you can't reallocate the RAM to anything else. Researched it, it's not a bug. It's a "feature." So there's no way to fix it. He just has to restart his computer after anything updates.
@NightShift Janitor, for a janitor you know you're shjt.
@NightShift Janitor, thank you for saying what needed to be said, kind sir or madam.
@NightShift Janitor, I'm honestly not mad about the setup of Win 10. I'm just mad that it forcibly downloaded itself even after I kept saying no. If I don't want the software, don't put it on my computer.
@NightShift Janitor, THANK YOU. I gave Windows 10 a chance (from 7) and love it.
@DeadStroke, I like Windows 73 better, it runned smoother and the holograms aren't all glugged up on my desk...
@NightShift Janitor, my computer was almost completely destroyed and needed a 100 dollar repair because of an error with win10 updating
@TheHaxAreReal, People have had that same issue with every other Windows operating system. The problem isn't unique to you or your time.
No, I'm I'm not going to buy a Mac. I'm going to install linux.
@Rampill, game set and match.
My computer randomly restarted when o was in a comp game of csgo and then I got the notification "preparing to upgrade to windows 10"
@I shjt you alot, ah I had that too! I was able to stop it from changing thankfully! I had always hit not now not now then one day it just starts downloading! Luckily I was able to choose the option to not have it take effect.
So it forcefully installed itself on my laptop, and its all downloaded, all I have to do is click apply. But I will always hit "not now". It still pops up asking to change, instead of asking to download, like it used to.
@I shjt you alot, it is being pushed as a recommended windows update now. So when you push install updates and shutdown you get windows 10. You can do a registry edit to prevent the updater from installing OS upgrades or you can always check to see what updates are being installed before you shutdown
@random09, mine just started updating...
@I shjt you alot, ya if you have windows set to automatically download and install updates it will automatically download and install Windows 10
@random09, if you haven't upgraded yet and don't plan to, look up a program called GWX control panel. It will disable the upgrade so you won't have to keep fighting the notification
Yeah, a micmac from Canada
@Nickatine , I thought micmacs were from Mexico?
@ManPlayingGalaga, you are thinking chimichangas
I am not buying a Mac because of Windows 10, I already bought a Mac because of Windows 8.
@ManPlayingGalaga, foolish reason to buy a Mac considering Windows 7 is still an operating system you can purchase, and home premium has updates planned until 2020.
@Jyu Viole Grace, I made the switch a couple of years ago, when I need a new computer anyway. No regrets yet.
@ManPlayingGalaga, if you enjoy the Mac environment and can afford one, a Mac is a lovely machine. They tend to hold their value too.
Thinks immediately "Directx 12 be like...."
Amirite PC Gamers?
Windows 10 is getting bold.
I will just continuously click "not now" just like I do with Java and Adobe Flash.
You only do it when you need it, and I'll need the latter 2 infinitely more times than Windows 10. Especially since I have Windows 7.
Maybe, just maybe ibwould change is I had Windows 8, but I don't have it so I don't know. (Have used Windows 8 once, didn't like it, but didn't have time to get use to it either)
@Summerwolves, yeah windows 7 is great. I had windows 8 preinstalled on the laptop i bought so i upgraded to 10 and its better than 8 in my opinion. However when i build my desktop in the near future I'll probably get windows 7 pro edition.
For some reason this reminds me of Rage Valley by Knife Party
My computer always tells me to upgrade but can't because got base software that's not compatible and can't be deleted.
Hey am I the only goddämn one who thinks that Windows 10 is pretty good and that it doesn't matter whether they forced us to take it or not because it's actually a good operating system with the benefits of both W7 and W8
Buy a Mac? Yeah I did, thx for the advice Microsoft, best decision I ever made
I already edited my registry, but thanks for the tip!
Peace was never an option
