    I mean how can anyone stand that trash Windows 10 ? It is filled with unnecessary trash , significantly slower and uses more resources than WIndows 8.1 update 1 and on top of that you even have auto Windows Updates .

    Recently I upgraded ( clean install fyi ) and it only took 1 week before Windows 10 couldnt even start anymore , had to reinstall and went back to 8.1 .

    In windows 10 I had 1.8 GB of non paged pool memory being used , i tried various registry tweaks and it still wasnt fixed , in windows 8.1 I only have 100 mb of non paged memory being used with the even more things opened .

    I am 100% sure M$ BOUGHT a huge portion of the hype for Windows 10 and pretty much used that hype to force that piece of garbage down everyone's throats .

    In windows 8.1 , the moment I install it , I disable windows update , tweak a few things here and there and the thing performs lightning fast , way better for work .

    The ONLY good thing about windows 10 is the task view option activated by Win Key + Tab and that's about it , everything else is worse compared to W7 and 8.1 , W10 might even be worse than vista .

    A few of my friends who have ( totally different computers ) have the same complaints , yet when I go online everyone says its great . I am 100% sure something fishy is going on , W10 is one of the worst OSes released in the past 10 years , slow broken , filled with garbage , easielly gets screwed up , I mean before I upgraded I had windows 8.1 for a year and half and it was still doing pretty good , the moment I upgrade it only took a week before blue screen of death and even the advance recovery options couldnt fix it . Games also play better .

    It is not drivers btw , my hardware supports windows 10 , I have dirvers for all versions of windows downloaded and stored on my hard drive .

    I also had W10 in the past for about 2 weeks and had to revert once again cuz my Photoshop didn't wanna work no matter what so I had no choice since I can't without it . This time it was working , but like I said the problem was on a way higher scale lol .

    People of BHW , for those of you who still haven't tried W10, please save yourself a headache and don't bother , thank me later.

    Win 10 is ok, you have to remember that they are not going to support win 8.1 for much longer then you'll have to pay to upgrade. The latest update did my computer's settings and I did have to redo those, but overall I'm ok with it

    win 7 is better, but 10 is much faster for me at least.

    I totally agree with you, i also kept windows 8.1 on the pc of my parents and on mine, i have windows 10 on a tablet and its just too much of a hassle on some things. At least Edge looks like a good and fast browser.

    win 10 is optimised for SSD and the only good thing at win 10 is the window management ( you ca easy split the screen in 4 ), i miss old XP....

    well that window management i have on linux for like 4 years... and you can customize to make more on linux also. Yesterday i had a big problem that i didn't solve around wireless settings and networks on windows 10, the options are not clear you have to dig up a bit to find some menus in the control panel. Windows XP for instance was way better in that aspect.
