    Hey Guys,

    Just got my Windows 10 upgrade option appear. Fear of upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 are kicking, how did it went for you from Windows 7?
    Hated Windows Vista and Windows 8, do not sure about Windows 10 but youtube videos make it seem pretty much like Windows 7, but better..

    What you think? Hoping I can go from Windows 10 to Windows 7 if I don't like it, debating if I should change something it works fine for some thing perhaps
    better, reminds me of marriage/loyalty/commitment lol jaja

    The upgrade is pretty smooth and fast. Just do a search for Windows 10 Security & Privacy Settings to turn off all the Microsoft reporting/spying.
    A little better than Windows 7 and a whole lot better than Windows 8.

    Did you guys know Windows 10 is tracking your moves?
    Microsoft already released updates for Windows 7 and 8 to track you.

    It's time for you guys to remove this updates, so you don't get tracked.

    /// new shit :


    Remove the following updates (if installed already)


    KB3068708 Update for customer experience and diagnostic telemetry


    KB3022345 Update for customer experience and diagnostic telemetry


    KB2952664 Compatibility update for upgrading Windows 7


    KB2990214 Update that enables you to upgrade from Windows 7 to a later version of Windows


    KB3035583 Update installs Get Windows 10 app in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 SP1


    KB971033 Description of the update for Windows Activation Technologies


    KB3021917 Update to Windows 7 SP1 for performance improvements


    KB3044374 Update that enables you to upgrade from Windows 8.1 to a later version of Windows
    *cmd:


    sc stop Diagtrack


    sc delete Diagtrack
    *Task Scheduler Library:


    Everything under "Application Experience"


    Everything under "Autochk"


    Everything under "Customer Experience Improvement Program"


    Under "Disk Diagnostic" only the "Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticDataCollector"


    Under "Maintenance" "WinSAT"


    "Media Center" and click the "status" column, then select all non-disabled entries and disable them.
    *services.msc:


    "Remote Registry" to "Disabled" instead of "Manual".


    Finally

    Command Prompt run as admin, paste ->


    Code:
    wusa /uninstall /kb:2952664
    
    
    Now replace the number above with the update number and start uninstalling for your own safety.

    There are websites that are banning Windows 10 because of the telemetry that compromises the users.

    I use Windows 8.1 as my primary OS. Remove the Metro Apps and install Classic Shell and it is good to go.

    I run W10 inside of a VMWare sandbox (Virtual machine). In order to use W10, I still had to remove the Windows Metro (Modern apps) and install Classic shell. Funny, neither Parallels nor VMWare will support W10 in version 10. Both want you to pay extra to run W10. I run version 11, but had no problem in version 10 - outside of the graphics not resizing except in full screen mode - but that happened in V10 as well.

    My own impression is that one should stay away from Windows 10 as much as possible. Unfortunately, if you are running SEO software, you are pretty much stuck with Windows - even if you have to run it inside a Linux host.

    Not planning to upgrade this year. I'm fine with 7 and don't trust 10 enough.

    I think Windows 10 is adequate. I don't hate it, but I definitely don't love it (like I did XP!).

    Went from 8 to 10. Reverted back to 8. Heard too many bad things about 10.
