8 comments on “I caved and installed Windows 10

  1. I have Windows 10 on my Cintiq. It doesn’t bother me at all and I can’t imagine how anyone could write 5 paragraphs about why it’s awful. You’re an old fart. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s not anymore spyware/malware than Windows 7 or 8, so whatever. It’s actually much better than 8 because it gets rid of the Metro bullshit on desktops.

    I only use it to launch Photoshop or Sketchbook on my Cintiq and that’s… about it. I have it on my Mac in case I ever need a Windows-only utility, but I can’t remember the last time I booted into it. Next time I do, it will probably require 870GB of patches.

  2. The only thing I ever typed into Cortana was “Uninstall Cortana” and it hasn’t bothered me again…..

    I actually like Windows 10 a lot. Its the one true successor to Windows 7. Much like Windows ME, Windows 8 should be forgotten about.

  3. I didn’t say it was awful. It does a great job of transitioning from an old OS, and it’s not as intrusive as people make out. You can turn off nearly anything you consider too invasive. I’m just not crazy about the features Microsoft emphasizes or the fact that everything is so smart-phoney. I guess this is for a more synchronized experience on multiple devices. I would like to see more UI options for desktops and laptops. Edge is interesting, but the UI is too dumbed down and it needs better compatibility with oddball sites like Blackboard. Win 10 is not bad; it’s just not anything to get excited about.

  4. You can turn off everything they put out in front of you, yeah, but the NSA can still see your balls. Oh well.

    I’m just glad they toned the Metro shit way way back.

    I guess you didn’t say it was awful. I’m just chewing nails this week because of that artist who ran off with my money. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I don’t really know what Edge is. Is that what they call the new start menu? It seems pretty generic Windowsy to me.

  5. Ah.. OK.

    I’ve never been an IE user and would never be an Edge user. Sorry for being clueless. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Although Chrome is starting to rub me the wrong way. In the name of security (mostly), they’re breaking more and more websites. Granted those sites are using Flash and other nearly deprecated things… but it’s an annoyance. Surely they could sandbox them somehow instead of just flat out not rendering content.
