    Well, after suffering with it for a couple of weeks I went back to Windows 8.1

    Reasons:
    1. Predictable behaviour (i.e. windows, icons and shortcuts stay where I left them the last time
    2. Window focus works correctly especially backwards focus (i.e. focus on last opened window)
    3. More logical grouping of tools without unnecessary semi-duplications

    etc.

    This OS is not finished.

    I think that Edge will be a very good offering once they finish it off. IE is untenable.

    Story goes how edge got its name.

    "So what shall we call the new IE in windows 10"?
    "I heard samsugn is making a new phone and hear this out, it's called "edge".
    "Aint that funny?".
    "No, that's awsome.
    "Ok so Microsoft Edge it is?
    "AY!"

    No it isn't.
    We are being used as beta testers. Virgins were used to beta test volcanoes in days gone bye.
    The upgrade is free to suck in as many suckers as possible. All their activities are logged, assuming they didn't look to closely at the install pages, and MS uses it to track down, and cover up their errors.

    This again? :31:

    You don't actually have to use Windows 10 if you don't want to, and don't agree with the terms. But you're not going to sway anyone else by calling us all 'suckers' in a Windows 10 discussion forum...

    Fair enough.

    But I quite like Windows 10. It's way faster than Windows 7 on my machine. I can't say anything about it compares to Windows 8 - I hated it and didn't stay with it.

    the forced updates Is the biggest mistake they ever made, i'm running on entreprise, AND i still feel i'm not in control, and the telemetry thing is going too far.

    But it boot very fast compared to all my others windows, win 8 is almost as fast, other lags behind.

    After a fresh upgrade to Win10 you can go back to the parent OS. There is a one-month grace period. Look in security&updates --> Restore. The option was there for me, although I did not test it.

    --------------------------------
    How I upgraded.

    1. I did a fresh install of Win7SP1. No updates of any kind. THis was on a GPT disk so activation was via KMS

    2. I put the Multi Edition ISO on a USB stick with Rufus.

    3. With Win7 running, setup.exe was started from the stick. and the install completed.

    4. Find the activation page using Properties of "This PC"

    5. Go online quickly and activate. THis tin box is now known to MS

    6. Do a clean (cold metal) install of Win10 from the stick.

    If your computer came with Windows 7 pre-installed, you can install Windows 10 and then go back to Windows 7 any time you want. And you can go back and forth between Windows 7 and Windows 10 whenever you want.

    1. Back up your system that's running Windows 7 and put the backup on a different drive (external or whatever). I highly recommend Acronis True Image. Great program, been using it for years.

    2. Do an upgrade install of Windows 10. When finished make sure it says Windows is activated.

    3. Wipe the hard drive and do a clean install of Windows 10

    4. Use Acronis True Image to backup your computer running Windows 10.

    5. Use Windows 10 for a while and decide you don't like it.

    6. Boot from your Acronis recovery CD and restore your system from the backup you made in Step 1. You're back in Windows 7 land.

    6a. If you didn't do Step 1, just do a clean install of Windows 7. Since your computer came with Windows 7 installed you have a SLIC table in the BIOS so all you need is an OEM certificate and key, which are easily found here and elsewhere.

    7. If you decide you want to try Windows 10 again, use Acronis to put it back on, using the backup you made in Step 4.

    Those kind of benchmarks are part of it anyway.

    #1 Hardly a 2% of benchmark difference on a game or transcoding SW are noticeable.

    #2 W7 has fully matured drivers, while W10 is still in diapers

    #3 what counts for most of the users is the boot time, the time needed to get the IP from a router, the resume time, the time needed to open a browser and so on, not those useless benchmarks.

    We can talk a lot about privacy concerns, but being strictly technical W10 is faster and and better than W7 on almost any aspect.
