The Windows 10 Opinions Topic...



  • @julian That was my biggest problem with Windows 8, I found it was just slowing me down. I installed Classic Shell (http://www.classicshell.net) and it works great. Looking forward to playing around with
    Win 10 when I get the chance.

    Have downloaded the Consumer Preview. Still to test it. Wondering how easy would it be to uninstall.

    You'd need to wipe the drive to put Windows 7 back on.

    You mean the whole HDD ?



  • @meetdilip If you have it already partitioned, then probably not. But if it was a whole drive with Windows 10 on, then you couldn't "upgrade" back to windows 7, it would be a custom install, which involves formatting the drive.



  • @a_5mith He could shrink his current partition and then create a new one for windows 10

    I havn't add the opportunity to play with it, but I am looking forward to it. A lot of people like Windows 7 over Windows 8, but I prefer Windows 8 over Windows 7 and I don't even have a touch screen. I am actually glad there isn't a "Start Menu". I find myself always getting lost or spending more time looking for "Applications". I just click the "Windows" thing on my keyboard and start typing the name of the application or feature.

    ex: Filez (brings up FileZilla)
    ex; Control Panel

    much faster then clicking the start menu and searching for those things.

    Wasn't Mod4+write+Enter possible since Win XP?
    Ever tried Linux 😄 - and I don't mean Ubuntu, it doesn't fulfill most of the main reasons for GNU/Linux anymore.

    Anyway, I prefer the start-menu over the touchscreen-oriented screen.

    I also like the fact that Windows X (Official Name, not actually 10) APP Store is going be shared with Win Phone market. So all apps/programs do not need 2 seperate versions.

    I hate the concept of being a hybrid OS for PCs and mobile devices... So this is a negative point in my opinion.

    @Sim I've heard that the windows app store is full of crappy malware apps that masquerade as real applications.

    Isn't this an exact description of Windows itself? xD

    All in all my opinion of Windows X is the same as of any other Windows version: Windows = Solitaire

    Sorry guys, had to contribute to this topic 😛

    EDIT: PS: (just replace 7 with X and Snow Leopard with anything else, I don't care)



  • @frissdiegurke As a developer, I love the fact it's going to be hybrid. It is easier to develop on more devices.



  • Enjoying the 10041 update to the tech preview, didn't enjoy how long it took to install mind. 😆

    I have 8.1 and although it was a bit of a cultural-ish shock for me to have a different "start" menu, I ended up enjoying it. It seems like Windows is starting to really try to behave like Linux while still being Windows.



  • I have one PC here and it's still on Windows 7. I use it for gaming and website testing on client sites to make sure there is 100% compatibility since most of them are in the IBM/PC world and I know they're not on Macs like me.

    What happened to Windows 9? LOL just skipping a version to jump on the bandwagon of being titled X?

    Sharing a store with the phone market doesn't matter, I've never met someone with a Windows phone. Ever.



  • Windown 9 was skipped for legacy reasons. If software worked differently in win 95 or 98 than say xp then they'd use win 9x to catch both in software. Anyone running old software on a new machine running win9 would see issues.

    We deploy lumia 760s at work which run Windows for people that don't want the galaxy s4 mini.

    It's also shared with the Xbox One.
    I for one switched to Windows Phone early 2011 and I never switched back. Have tried the latest Android and iOS and it's just not for me. They are supposedly actually fairly popular in Europe, I see them quite often here.
