    Hi guys, so the final day of the free Windows 10 installation is coming close. Just wanna do a final check about the worthy of upgrading or not.

    Does taking advantage of it and upgrade to Windows 10 now the best option?

    Ok, thanks guys. Just had to type in google search box "windows 10 user feedback" and saw its still being cursed by many users. Looks like i'll be sticking with Windows 7 until its final days...

    Windows 10 is the most advanced, the most secure, the most optimized operating system ever released by Microsoft. Unfortunately, the internet is plagued by ignorant users who are spouting tripe about anything and most of the problems are caused by their stupidity, ignorance, and of course user error. Start Menu in Windows 10 still sucks, but it can be easily remedied with free Classic Shell. These are the facts.

    I suggest you wait for the July (July 15th or 29th) Anniversary build of Windows 10 and install it on cleanly formatted SSD/HDD.

    Still bad? I used it since early previews and never felt it's bad.
    So maybe care to explain what you mean by "bad" ?

    Technically W10 has little to no problems.

    The concerns are all about the privacy. If you don't care about them or if you are able to clean the installer to remove all the crap with MSMG, there isn't any problem installing W10, unless you have some unlucky HW, like the poulsbo chipset (GMA500).

    That said why not install W10 in dual boot using a separate partition or (better) a native VHD?

    You can get your digital entitlement before the 29/7, you can test W10, then you can upgrade your W7, when and if you decide to do so.

    Not stable.

    Windows 10, in my opinion, is a ticking time bomb. One need only looks at the 'Event Viewer' and you'll see what I'm talking about. This forum and many other forums will have the same questions over and over.


    1. Why isn't X app working?
    2. Why is the store not working?
    3. Why has X service failed?
    4. Why will Windows not update?
    5. Why will X app not update?

    You need not even install a single 3rd party program and overtime Windows 10 will eventually need to be formatted. Don't even bother reading the online solutions, most of them will not work, will cause more problems, and if they do work they will be temporary. Although you're welcome to try, everyone has found some kind of tweak that may work for whatever problem you'll randomly face. But I find once you start to go downhill, it's just become easier to format.

    The most common "solution" you'll find from Microsoft themselves isn't a comforting solution. You'll often be told to do sfc /scannow on Microsoft's own support forum that seems to be their answer for everything. Which really isn't comforting (considering they're all but admitting that files get corrupt often on Windows 10). If that fails, they'll just tell you to format and start over (suggesting they've given up trying to diagnose problems).


    I found a fully updated copy of Windows Vista (obviously Windows 7 and 8 too) is more stable than Windows 10.

    I really can't see what you have to loose? I don't understand the hysteria over Win10, and there are app that will take care of the privacy issues if you wish.

    one major glitch im hating of win 10 is devices not installing with invalid data error.. all fixable by net start deviceinstall

    or Win + X comp management.. services.. device install and setup manager services keep an eye on them when installing the device

    refresh the services and keep right click start on those 2 till drivers are done.. caused by bad permissions somewhere in system.

    i sometimes use mediacreationtool to repair re upgrade it and all works fine with no programs lost most times.

    otherwise i like it way better than vista or even win 8 aside from privacy issues. :mushy:

    From a functional and stability standpoint then I'd say hold off till the anniversary release in a few weeks. This will be the release that Microsoft really should have waited to force the masses to IMHO. It's more responsive and stable on more of my clients hardware. Up until now I couldn't suggest anyone upgrading to it and leaving Windows 7.
