Default Re: I'm getting windows 10

Yeah, I have had to deal with quite a few issues with Windows 10 at the workplace. (IT Systems Manger/Network Admin). What never ceases to amaze me is just how little shits were given about those of use using referb/spinning disk machines. It runs well on SSD, but there are too many issues to count on the machines with spinning disks. (There aren't many of those left.) If your machine basically has 100% disk usage and seems to be hardly using the disk, that would most likely be why. lol

I do have to say that my experience with Windows 10 has been pretty mixed. It seems to work really well and just sort of "stay out of the way" if it does work. If you end up having issues at the start though, it tends to have issues for ever in my experience. ^^;;

So yes, I would say that, if you are using windows 10 just make sure you have an SSD/upgrade to one. If not, then expect some pretty bad performance overall. And yes, linux for the win. haha

The driver problem I had, was sadly with SSDs! It seems that going back to a spinner, is a workaround.

Default Re: I'm getting windows 10

I've been on 10 for quite some time across quite a few PCs. I, for one, like it. It's faster and more responsive than Windows 7. So many things are better, even little things... the Mail app that comes with it is great, Task Manager is much better, Storage Spaces work great (that's what I'm using for my Plex server), the installer is miles better with built-in drivers for pretty much everything... no more hunting down SATA drivers just to install Windows 7.

I just replaced my mom's old Latitude E5410 running Windows 7 with a ThinkPad T430 running Windows 10, and she isn't having any trouble getting used to it. I just don't understand the hate for Windows 10. Just a bonus image attached... old 5400rpm HDD vs a $20 SSD... LOL!

For me, its all the forced updates & spying/phoning home. The interface is very nice, I will give it that...I have it on several test bed systems.....but I can't get past that the OS on my PC is tattling on me.

I totally understand that, I'm sure you'd cringe that I'm signed into MS Accounts on all my Win10 machines. But if MS wants to know that I like dudes or that I like American cars or that I prefer pizza over sushi, that's just fine by me.

I ditched Chrome due to how awful Google is when it comes to political agenda, leftist bias, and privacy... Yet I have a Google Home Mini. I'm sure that things stalks me. Oh, and my Android phone listens to me... at least Facebook does, for sure. If I talk about something with someone around my phone, I'll see ads for those things later that day. For example, me and my coworker were talking about a restaurant, Benihana, that I've never heard of before... and ever since I've seen Benihana ads all over FB. Though I'm not going, it's too expensive...

m$ knows a hell of a lot more that that, inc what you look like if you have a web-cam and what your saying in the room
(and what you watch on tv or listen to on the radio - they even have a marketing white paper on that concept!)

Default Re: I'm getting windows 10

Windows 10 keeps resetting random settings back to defaults for me.

This is what I remember right now (on multiple computers):
Turning on one or two random telemetry/spying settings (not all of them)
Allowing connections to wireless hotspots and connecting to one when there is already a fully functional wired connection
Resetting default programs back to the extremely limited "apps"
Disabling file sharing

I've had 10 pro for gaming. Disabled updates completely. Updated to the latest official version manually, broke my sound (creatives fault). Creative did have a updated driver but it still had problems so I successfully reverted back to 1803

How did you do this?

With W10 pro (and all versions of Windows from 7 & up with group policy editor), I did the following in gpedit.msc:

Administrative Templates > System > Internet Communication Management > Internet Communication Settings

Then turn off access to all Windows Update features.

That seemed to have killed all forced updates dead in their tracks.
