I feel you, gj. Just probably not as bad as you have it.

I've not had much issues with Win10.

I suspect the issue is HW specific and mostly for laptops as manufactures are not tend to update drivers.

I installed Win10, and I've to say it runs pretty smoothly. Better UI than 8.1, and I can't really say I've major downsides. I did have some problems with games earlier, but a driver update fixed everything.

I just wish my computer would STFU about "upgrading" to windows 10.

Ya see, I STILL don't have that upgrade option....

And come to think of it, I haven't had an update request for like, 3 months now.....

......this concerns me....

Windows auto-detects your "readiness" for Windows 10, if it determines you aren't "ready" (I don't know what the criteria is) then it doesn't give you the option to automatically update. You can, however, still download and install Windows 10 from Microsoft's website.

This will be a fight against overwhelming odds from which survival cannot be expected. We will do what damage we can." - Ernest E. Evans, Commander, USS Johnston (DD-557)

Ah Windows 10.. Not nearly as awful as 8 and 8.1, but a sinister shadow compared to 7.

I work in IT and the more I've experienced the horrors of Windows 10, the more I've come to dislike it. It was fine at first - quick, responsive, but then along came the issues. From my own experience, the search bar constantly breaking, the privacy issues, settings being forgotten, the awkward and pushy update system.. I'm liking it less and less these days and I plan to roll back to 7 when I can get off my rump and put the effort in to actually doing it.

Now from my perspective from work, my boss says Windows 7 is still the superior system for mission-critical business applications since we don't know what Microsoft has planned for 10, but we'r'e pretty suspicious. Especially since they can push whatever kind of update they want and they're really pushing the subscription end of things.

 We get a lot of machines in that have been upgraded to 10 and damn near bricked. System lockups, software incompatibility.. It's a mess. We just tell users to stay on 7 and turn off updates, since Microsoft seems intent on releasing buggy patches that cause all sorts of issues. One in particular resulted in widespread Outlook crashes and you can imagine what a disaster that is for a business.

Same here but i made clean install to remove all win8 shit.
Freed 20GBs from my SSD with old system so generally i advise you to make refresh of OS after upgrade.

You don't have to do a clean install. You can just install the new OS with Microsoft's media creation tool to install Windows 10. Then, use the disk cleanup tool to remove the old OS. Life is good. I don't see how any registry files from the old OS can stay on your system if you do this, but you already did what you would've liked. Whatever makes you happy, I suppose.

Yeah, Windows 10 certainly is not enterprise material at the moment. Microsoft seeks to be trying to mitigate the problem releases and patches with their Insider program, and it seems to be working, but definitely not in leaps and bounds.
