Last time I tried Windows 10 was when they were having everyone upgrade, that version even with a clean install froze ALL the time, randomly it was annoying and I went back to 8.1 after a few months, it has been a bit over a year since then and I decided to give 10 another go, glad to say I am happy with this newest version and no freezes so far.

Since he said "Spring Update" that means it has to be Version 1803, and at whatever build (17134) and build dot numbers were in place at the time of its installation.

It's not often that anyone posts positively about their Windows 10 experience, so it is refreshing to hear! People in general will only post negative things to illustrate problems they are having.

I have 3 Windows 10 computers that had clean installs very early on in the free upgrade path, and apart from 1 or 2 minor glitches that were fixed very quickly I have had no problems!

We always hear about the relatively few who have issues, but almost never about the multi millions who rarely if ever have problems, so I thank you for helping to redress the balance :bananas:

'Tis the nature of "help forums" of virtually any type.  I participate on several automobile related forums as well, and "trouble talk" predominates.  

 

I have, for years, tried to get people to understand that venues people turn to when they have problems are not, in any way, able to be used as a metric regarding either the incidence or prevalence of those problems.  The sample is grossly skewed, and that's OK because we're here to help in solving those problems.  My analogy on the car forums is, "If you believed what you read here were characteristic of automobiles in general they would not be wildly popular around the world."

 

But, as you say, the vast majority of users are happily humming along with Windows 10.  The 5 machines in my household have had almost no "burps" with Windows 10 since 3 of them were upgraded to it and the other 2 purchased with it as the OEM OS.  It took me a while to warm up to it, and particularly the flat-look UI (which I still do not prefer to the old Aero UI), but I now like Windows 10 better than any of the versions of Windows leading up to it (and I've been in "this biz" since Windows 3.1).

I can relate to what you say 100%, I to have worked with computers since the Amstrad CPC days, and with Windows since 3.1, I also own an iMAC.

My experience with Windows mirrors yours to some extent, and I also prefer Windows 10 to any previous version, though it took me a while to adjust to the desktop/start menu etc.
