Thread: O/S of choice?

  1. #1

    Default O/S of choice?

    I have been asked to upgrade several of my family members computer lately, and I have been stuck with either 8 or 10. Personally, I run 7 on my home machines.

    What are people using who box more regularly?

    If the choice is 8 or 10, I'd go with 10 without hesitation.

    between 8 or 10, then it has to be 10, 8 has a lot of compatibility problems which were addressed with 10, that is why 10 was given away free, because 8 was such a mess.
    I run 10 on 2 different systems and I don't have any issues.

    Ok. Primary reason: the same family and friends that bitched incessantly about Windows 8 stopped bitching as soon as they upgraded to win 10. Win 8 was the touch interface/tablet beta release. Win 10 is the actual os that adds support for it without trying to force it down everyone's throat. There's a reason the uptake of Windows 8 was worse than Vista, notwithstanding how happy people were with win 7.

    Running 10 for about a week, only complaint so far is that the notifications sound volume isn't tied to the system sounds volume channel, it's tied to the global speaker volume channel. So everythings nice and quiet, and something throws a notification and it's holy shitballs loud.

    I definitely had that problem!

    I like Windows 10 but it did take a bit of getting used to. The privacy issue may put people off. Here's a random article. I personally took measures to reduce this as much as I could.
