@ Lewis.....isnt it nice to know you can make you own opinion about windows 10. Maybe you read my comment in another window 10 topic..."
Cleaning up one's image (personal or business) is much harder than keeping it that way by not letting it get dirty.
Be careful Microsoft....be very careful....you are never too big to come down a peg or two.
This whole scenario reeks of heavy handedness reminiscent of other corporate giants who have 'bitten the dust'
Mr Linux.....keep your eye on the ball. Your time will come. "
SO.....obviously these are just a few of the things that are not good about win 10.....along with the "free" offer (no such thing as a free lunch etc)....as well as an emerging attitude
amongst those who appear to like it....of absolute invincibility and ":we are the greatest thing since sliced bread etc"....and we will brook no argument, and if you do argue we will "put you down" in such a way that even the moderators of this fine forum will be powerless to stop the rot.
When their own children adopt that particular attitude with them......then their chickens will come home to roost.
What is actually 'good' about win 10?....i am all ears.
My main complaints with 7 and 8 and 8.1 are fairly obvious....7 lacks some really up to date security features....I believe this has been looked at in win 10.....although the 'feature' of mandatory updates leaves a bad taste in my mouth.....a Really bad taste...!
8....nothing to say....disaster.
8.1 sorta kinda ok....but only just. Remember this is 2015....not 1990.....and the consumers have an inalienable right to expect the best....not just the half baked crap that microsoft cares to push out the door.....I do not have any feeling of allegiance to microsoft....in fact quite the opposite....they owe me.
Apparently it has more security. No kidding. That would have been a no brainer.
It will operate on pc's , tablets, phones etc etc....this is market driven. Good sense.
A new browser....and just how long did that take.......how many billion pc's have been infected /taken over etc because m'soft could not get a browser right ? ....This does not engender trust amongst the general public.
Now calling the programs..."apps"....remind you of Android devices...??/....that is the intention....complete with an alt tab to switch between them....and the task view icon in the taskbar so you can find it. Yes...M'soft has definitely felt the inroads made by the various Android devices etc.....take a bow Samsung !...oh....and Apple too !
If you've used Windows Phone 8.1 (or Android and/or iOS), you're used to a notification centre you can drag down from the top of the screen. Windows 10 puts that on the right of the screen, where the charms bar was in Windows 8, with notifications from various apps at the top and your choice of various settings buttons at the bottom for quick access.
In short......I will wait and see the impact that the impending release has on BleepingComputer.com .....as Nikhil_CV so adeptly put it....Ha.... Ha.... Seems like our crash analysis sub forum will need new recruits to keep up the dump input once Windows X is out.""
.....and despite protestations from Aura " I wouldn't worry about that, the current helpers are able to handle any sort of load of work that ends up in their section".......I am sure the thought has at some time crossed the mind of Grinler
The introduction of "toys" and copycatting of bits and pieces from phone manufacturers, will not do it for me.....and i suspect for many others...we expect better than the rubbish that Windows churns out.....and the garbage rhetoric that comes with it is nothing short of abysmal. The fact that windows holds the key position in the supply of OS's...is no excuse to treat the public to another dose of "ordinary fare"
Microsoft has "sown" various people, who are suitably indoctrinated, into key positions.....I find this possibly the most repugnant feature of Windows 10.......which leaves very little to "like"
and...Also lewis, every threads in this section is pretty much about the pros and cons of Windows 10. Creating another is practically useless.....Really???
