Windows 10
« on: July 30, 2015, 10:54:42 PM »
I see some posts which where related to Windows 10 in the Native-section. Before I'm gonna start off-topic there:

How is it? Does it worth it to take the effort to make backups etc. for upgrading it? :)

Always!

I'm sure most upgrades will go smoothly - but you don't want to be the one that gets caught out. Make sure you have a recovery disk or windows disk handy and back up any files on your system drive up somewhere else first.

Is it worth upgrading though? I use Windows 7 and am happy with it. However seeing that Windows 10 will be free for the first year (for users of 7 and 8 ), I'm wondering if I should get it.

I've had Windows 7 before and I was really satisfied with that version. However I upgraded to Windows 10 yesterday mainly because I wanted to commit a clean installation afterwards to be allowed to change my OS from 32bit to 64bit.

I can't say whether it's worth upgrading or not. I like the design though. You can back up your files, upgrade to Windows 10, test it for a week or two and if you don't like it, you are allowed to get back to your old version (within 28 days since your upgrade afaik).

I had Windows 10 for about a month before it officially came out since I joined the Insider program. I would say that Windows 10 is pretty good from what I have experienced.  :thumbup: , It does change some settings on your system, but it can be changed right back to what you originally had. There are times where it did crash some times, like when I first installed it, it crashed on me. It did crash a while after for reason that I still don't understand even today.  It did remove the screen that windows 8 had. That's one thing I like. So far I really like it, there are somethings you will have to get used to when upgrading, but other than that, I give it a  :thumbup: .

I was gonna be part of a friend's video recording today and he got 3 blue screens of death trying to record it.
He told me that his buddies couldn't even play games without it crashing.

Until I hear a good story I'm staying away from it.

I was going to do it today, but I guess I can wait a week till most of the bugs have been fixed.

Imagine that horrible start screen "metro" from windows 8 squashed into a start menu like windows 7 and you've pretty much got Windows 10.

In this case I'll keep my Windows 7   :bag:
