Android 5 rocks for me. Galaxy S5, Note 3 and Tab Pro 12.2. When my last Windows device went TU I never replaced it. It seems since retiring I do not need a Windows machine in the house…I do miss Sketchup and occasionally Excel. However, everything else is on the Android machines. I watch HBO, Showtime, Netflix and Youtube on my tablet, do all my banking on the tablet and take all my pix with the cell phones. Life is nice…of course it would be nicer if I could get Sketchup on Android.

Window 10 rocks big time

There is a Windows 10 computer in my near future … I’m still using a Vista machine, we have 2 WinXP machines, and my wife has a Windows 8 laptop. Time for a change!

Good to hear. I will be getting the Win10 update in a few weeks, I think.

The computer that I am using to write this message is a Compaq about 5 years old.
It came with Win 7 Pro.
I put Win 8.0 and then 8.1 on it and now I run Win 10.
It never ran better than this, even new.
Win 10 is (so far) very stable and I like the new interface.
Win 10 installation was fast straight forward and without drama.
So far, my only issue is that some how my external HD is no longer recognized.
The CPU and the Memory usage are very low, lower than before.
So far I really like it.

Okay good. My computer is around 4-5 years old and am using Win7. Does the installer check your existing programs for compatibility?

How did you get Win10? I thought it doesn’t come out until the end of July?

I am so tired of the Windows operating system updates. All I see is constant $$$$$ going out for the operating system and updated software. EOR (End of Rant)

I really wonder the value of these updates but you have no choice but to eventually update.

I have two tablets, a fIve year old Acer and a brand new Samsung Tab S that I am currently using to write this post.
I have read reviews on Windows 10 and that the upgrade will be free … free from Microsoft, that is hard to believe!

I really like some of the woodworking apps I have found for Android!

Windows is about the only OS known to self destruct over time all by itself. The only thing Microsoft has done for the industry is make people believe that computers are inherently unreliable :)

Cheers,
Brad

PS: I gave up on Windows years ago, and have since enjoyed a virus/crash free experience, all the while watching others go through convolutions trying to keep their machines somewhat workable.

Why to complain?Updates are for your benefits and free

“Windows is about the only OS known to self destruct over time all by itself.

The last OS have been very stable.

“The only thing Microsoft has done for the industry is make people believe that computers are inherently unreliable”
Really???

As always when working on computers ( I have been working on them for many years and I used to be a Cisco network engineer, results will vary from computer to computer. I have used the same DVD to install the same OS on 5 diffent computers at home and the result slightly vary from computer to computer)

BEWARE Win 10: I put it on one of my machines, and promptly lost internet connectivity. Seems to be a not uncommon issue.

I agree with b2rtch about W10 and disagree that Windows is inherently self destructive. I stated with PC’s with Windows 3.1 in a business environment and have progressed through all of the iterations with little to no issues over 35+ years on computer work.

Granted there isn’t much else out there, except for Apple, because the other operating systems don’t provide the mass amount of applications when compared to Windows. And, many of those applications are now free; i.e. Open Office (word processing, spreadsheets, drawings, presentation, etc.), Gimp (photographic work), and way too many to list here.

You are asking the right question. What will you loose if you upgrade.

In my case I loose Windows Media Center. I use it instead of a cable box to watch and record TV. So if I upgrade to Windows 10, I get to pay Verizon a monthly charge for a DVR/Cable box. Not to mention I will no longer have the integration of watching TV and browsing the internet (or anything else), all on one screen.

So Windows 10 is not an upgrade, it is a downgrade.
