    Default Are you using Windows 10?

    Hello guys,
    I just want to ask you, have you installed Windows 10? I want to know is it fast and stable?

    I have read all articles regarding Windows 10. I have read about stealing bandwidth, is that correct?

    Thanks in advance

    I am using Windows 10, and my only issue is that I can't play my DVDs with it. Other than that I haven't really had an issue with the upgrade. i know some people have, but i can tell you that I have not. I like how much more organized this is than Vista. I was grateful to get the upgrade for free. It's nice.

    I'm still using Windows 7 on my laptop, and I'm a bit sceptical about upgrading to Windows 10. Many people have already complained about it's poor performance and they even called it worse Windows update ever. I'm quite happy using Windows 7 and I won't be upgrading to Windows 10, unless I get to hear some good reviews about it.

    I'm using Windows 10, and while I have to admit it's far from perfect, I think it's getting a lot of unfair criticism, as people seem to forget it IS a brand new OS, and its bound to have some teething issues but they are, and will be fixed.

    Could you tell me please what kind of issues? I don't use Windows 10 nor I will.
    I like my currently Windows 7. Performances are great, no lags or bugs

    I will be upgrading to Window 10 within the next month or two. I'm busy working on a project and I don't want to switch operating systems at this critical time. Generally, I've heard good things about Windows 10, it's fairly stable but it would benefit from a few more updates.

    Some users are experiencing compatibility issues with some of their older applications. This shouldn't surprise anyone, this always occurs with newer operating systems. Windows 10 should provide an even better experience in about 6 months from now. Microsoft should have worked out many of the kinks out by then.

    I have a friend who is using Windows 10 and he says that the performance aspect of it is incredibly amazing. So far, there hasn't been much complaints and it seems like a standard upgrade from the previous version. Everything is made simpler and easier to use also.

    I am still using Windows 7. I won't be upgrading to Windows 10 at the time being since my trusty old Windows 7 functions perfectly so far. Also, as @Pwarbi said, it's far from perfect. Since it's a new operating system, it's bounded to have bugs and issues here and there, which I mind. So for the time being, I'll be staying on the safe side.

    I upgraded to windows 10 as soon as it came out, however I only did so because I was fed up with windows 8.1 (which my PC came with unfortunately.) So I had no choice but to upgrade and hope for the better. So far, I am loving windows 10, compared to windows 8.1, I would even say it's better than windows 7 due to the nicer UI, and slightly faster performance. And in regards to your question, I have never heard that windows 10 steals bandwidth, may have to read about it!

    I never upgraded my computer to Windows 10. In fact it is still Windows XP. I am supposed to upgrade it but only those at Windows 7 & 8 will be given free upgrade. So I need to upgrade it to Windows 7 before going to Windows 10.

    Meanwhile, I am using a Windows tablet which is previously at Windows 8.1. I upgraded it and so far it works really well.

    I don't think it's worth spending money on windows 7 just to upgrade to Windows 10, as it means that you had to purchase the license for 10 in a way. Whereas, XP is still a solid OS, which compares well with windows 7.

    I have an original Windows 7 so I wouldn't be spending to upgrade to it. But since at your last sentence, you'd mentioned that it is still a solid OS, I might be sticking to it. Anyway, is the free Windows 10 upgrade not anymore available?

    I'm not sure whether the upgrade is still available for free, it definitely wasn't forever, and there was an expiration date. However I believe it was in 2016 when it expires. Windows 7 is still a very decent OS, and so us windows XP. But an upgrade to 10 would allow more updates, and a longer life for your PC.

    It is still free to upgrade to windows 10, it can be downloaded now by visiting the microsoft webpage to get the instructions and link for the upgrade.

    The free upgrade was until sometime next year I believe but really I think people should upgrade to Windows 10 as soon as possible.

    There as Bern a few teething problems like there usually is with any new OS but Windows 10 isn't going away and people need to get used to it.

    I checked just now and it is still available. I am used to Windows XP and Peter has a valid point here. But I think I should upgrade to Windows 10 which I think is for longer use.

    Yes it's great experience other than #Wi-Fi issues in #Windows10 giving big headache, won't recognised any available networks. Worst part is customers sufferers endlessly in conflict of #HP PC hardware n software compitiblity problems.

    Windows 10 has a built in keylogger. Not comfortable to have Mr. Gates look at everything I type.

    The jeylogger that is used by Windows 10 isn't as shady as a lot of people might think, and it's not do Microsoft can monitor everything you do like a lot of people think.

    While it does feed information back to them, it's not to check up on what your doing, but more to make sure their systems are running effectively for your benefit.

    Yeah windows XP is already outdated, and no longer supported by Microsoft with updates, therefore new software won't be built for it, and hackers will find new ways of exploiting it. Windows 10 on the other hand, will have very frequent security updates, and its overall a much better OS in my opinion, which will also futureproof your computer!

    Absolutely! I even heard from a techy friend of mind that Microsoft has stated that it will be theit last version of Windows and all they will do is upgrade or update tine after time. I don't know if it will happen but it is too early for me to believe it as techonology changes. Still, upgrading to Windows 10 would be a good idea for future use.

    Yes! I tried it, it has enough points in its favor and is a good Windows better than Windows 8 would say. Currently it does not support all the programs that I normally use, but that does not mean it's bad. I really liked their fluency and speed when working. And the best thing that came from a free upgrade, plus the installation was so simple and without any inconvenience. It also has good support, I have had one problem and immediately helped me fix it.

    I don't sysppose windows 10 will be the last windows operating software they will create cause times are evolving and technology is growing, and windows 10 is like a starting point for windows now, because of its huge success.

    I agree with your points. Windows 10 cannot be the last one from Microsoft even though they have already declared that Windows 10 is the last one in the series. May be they will come up with another series that gives more importance to Mobile OS. They know the future is now in mobility and will divert their efforts to be number one in mobile OS platform. Anyway they are already the top player in computer OS.

    It is heard that Microsoft will be launching Windows 10 as a mobile OS at global level very soon.

    Great, since Cortana will be on it, hopefully Cortana will be better than the virtual assistant on the Lumia phones now, because the Virtual assistant is quite frankly not one of the best, speaking from experience.

    I think you are right. I heard that they said it will be their last and will just be upgrading it. But I don't think it will happen. I remember before when I heard from somewhere, not sure of the sources, that Samsung will stop producing Android phones but they still does. It might be the same case with Windows. Technology advances and evolves.

    If any company plans to stop making new software releases then they are going out of business indefinitely and most of this big companies plan on beig around forever.

    That's what I am thinking too. Of course they will keep innovating as technology advances and keep up what will sell to people and the kind of services people will look for.

    I think that instead of creating a new OS from scratch in a couple of years, they will just keep on drastically updating windows 10, which would be a lot cheaper for them, that making a new OS evey couple of years. I think they nie have a very stable platform to build up on.

    I think it will be awhile before they make a substantially different OS from windows 10 and like you pointed out, we'll be dealing with OS updates and all that till the time arrives again.

    That may be a good reason. And they will create new versions whenever they feel it is necessary. And I do hope that updating Windows 10 would be great and can compete with other OS.

    With regards to Windows 8.1, that's the one I used lately before Windows 10. It is a good OS and I agree that it is better than 8. I should have indicated it's 8.1 I am referring to.

    Are you sure? I haven't installed Windows 10 yet nor I want to do so. I saw a review on YouTube and I feel like that guys is using Windows 8.

    Why they can't make Windows 7.1? :P

    Windows 10 does not arrive in perfect magazine. There are many criticisms that can be made to the operating system in several sections. Inconsistencies in the user interface, the presence of almost doubled in performance and functionality, uncertainties about the future of universal and unified application store applications, the role of touch in native applications or components that generate doubts as Microsoft Edge are clear examples of where we could find weaknesses in the operating system.

    Ironically, Microsoft Edge is the only thing about Windows 10 that I love. I am not a fan of Windows 10 as I prefer 8.1. But when I used Microsoft Edge, I love it.

    I think windows 10 will grow on you with time, like you I didn't see anything wrong with windows 8.1, as I liked it hugely compared to 8.

    Perhaps in the long run. Maybe if I had it installed on my laptop then I will get used to it. I am using Windows 10 just with my tablet and my tablet slowed down.

    Yes there is a major difference windows 10 would be more preferable and easily accustomed to through a laptop than a mobile device, but its all up to your preference in the end.

    Exactly. My friend who shifted to Windows10 with his laptop at the same time I upgraded my tablet to Windows 10 as well. He said he already learned the ropes of it and it is fine for him now.
