    whell after several tests with Windows 10 all versions including build 1511 I don´t stay happy with this o.s. still need a lot of corrections, annoying bugs; return of aero glass native and more things so I decided downgrade to Windows 8.1 without all apps craps as result my main machine is very faster, no lags play several games (including old Windows 95 as Pinball lol) Chess Titans by MDL and a lot of heavy games , I recover aero glass effect by Sergei (Winaero), also I use one dock similar Mac OS, no icons unsightly on desktop and the principal thing: extremelly stable;

    so my two cents to my friend Windows 8.1 :p

    any sugestions or new ideas I am here dudes.

    Considering this myself, not really enjoying Win 10

    Feels like I'm walking on egg shells, can't mess with it too much in case I break something, with 8.1, I could mess with it all I wanted and it was fine

    Not to mention, things that worked perfectly with 8.1, are broken with 10, such as WLMail client (WL Essentials) - 3rd party I know, but the bug is retarded, it asks for a PIN (Nowhere to enter one if I did have one) if 2 step is enabled on my MSA

    Worked fine under 8.1 with 2 step

    Well, I did it, and guess what? Everything that was broken in 10, works fine again in 8.1

    Go figure...

    Does his seem to be the consensus at the moment?

    I thought that sticking to 8.1 - I was being left behind.

    Are there aspects in windows 10 that you'll be adding to your windows 8.1 installs via third party apps, i.e anything you miss?

    :thumbdown:oh my God is not possible M$ come with updates again(about windows 10 of course) see kb3112336, kb3112343 although I make all processes to avoid using DWS and a lot of things but MS again are making one process similar to brainwash every day one or several updates with little or none explanation ( same with windows 7) so I'm obligate return to windows 10 ltsb ;) or then maybe FreeBSD, sometimes I think auto banned from internet and return to old times ms-dos yet my Windows 8.1 works like a charm but good bye unfortunately :mad::mad:

    I've stuck Win 8.1 Enterprise N on myself after dabbling around with Windows 10 Pro TH2 10586.36.

    With the windows as a service model the whole thing feels like it's still very much in testing and always will be; they don't even seem to bother putting out update notes - I guess it's because you're getting them whether you like it or not.

    Useless as a stable platform - maybe I should've tried Enterprise LTSB.


    Having to turn off updates with the Group Policy trick is a pain and doesn't give the same level of control.

    Having device drivers get replaced is a total nuisance; I don't need Micro$haft to tell me how to use my PC.

    I've had black screen crashes & adapter resets with the latest AMD drivers =\

    I haven't yet become such a sad t**t that I'd want a digital female helper in lieu of a real female - I'll just take a magnifying glass thanks.

    The only plus side seems to be the free digital entitlement licence - but it can't be that great if they're giving it away can it?


    I don't feel as though I'm missing anything under 8.1 with Classic Shell installed - just seems the same with less crap installed by default.


    They seem to have brought across the useless Games Explorer to 8.1 - it used to cause games to not launch in Win 7 when offline - surprised to see that - minor negative.

    Wouldn't go back to 7, it's getting a bit long in the tooth. There must be 1000+ updates for that by now - a gigabyte or more?

    Might improve with Redstone I suppose?

    Welcome to MDL dude :) well I agree 1000% with you, really M$ annoiyng with this windows as service sometimes I think that M$ look for another things ($$$$) using spyware into the system because nobody give something absolutely free without one return of course ;) I don´t see good perspectives unfortunately waiting then TH3 or Redstone updates :tea:
