Windows 10
My computer keeps bugging me to upgrade. Is it worth it or will I regret it.

I have (and love) Windows 8 on a touch screen computer.

Re: Windows 10
In my very opinionated belief, it is not worth the upgrade.

My reasoning for saying this is largely due to my mistrust in microsoft to do the morally right thing with the model they've designed. I firmly believe that Microsoft will do the economically correct thing, and begin to charge as a service, despite their statements saying they will not swap to that style.

From an operational sense, the upgrade brings few welcome things, such as directx upgrades, backend optimizations, and the revamped start menu, but packages them together with items that are limited in scope and appeal, such as cortana, windows store apps, and forced automatic updates (and a style that makes me wish I could fire whomever created it, but that's more personal taste). If you regularly use touchscreen components, optimizations in that area have been hinted at, but I've yet to find substantial evidence that they exist in an observable fashion.

I suppose the best way of wording my argument into one coherent statement would read something along the lines of: "If you can handle the threat of microsoft holding your OS hostage, and don't rely on complete control of your system, then Windows 10 upgrade is worthwhile."

As a footnote, it's worth noting that pro (or whatever their higher upgrade version is called) does include the ability to swap back to manual upgrades. Similarly worth noting, I have no actual experience using the OS. This is all research and conjecture.

I go ti t and it's whatever lol.
I take it back. Since I changed over to Win10 I've had issues with my wireless gamepad f710. Before it was just plug it in and play. Now it's always missing drivers.

Eh. I'm enjoying the return of the start menu but other than that, meh. Not much change.

Re: Windows 10
I've been sticking to my Windows 7 guns until the bugs get worked out of 10. Windows Update just downloaded 4+GB worth of "updates" so I'm guessing that 10 is now on my computer and biding its time.

Re: Windows 10
^ Smart. Microsoft had a great thing in Windows 7; Windows 8 and 8.1 is enough to make anyone justifiably wary to update their machines to Windows 10.

Re: Windows 10
My computer absolutely refuses to update to Windows 10. It tries and loads for hours.... Once I got to the actual install part and it gave me a "failed to install" for reasons I will never understand.

Re: Windows 10
^eh, like John n Foxy mentioned, it's probably to wait for them to fix the bugs n what not. Everytime there's an update it messes with my controller and I gotta shut down/restart until it reads the driver. A little bit annoying, considering I never had to deal with it before.
