OK, so maybe it's not quite that bad but would I give up my Windows 7 machines for it.
No! I wouldn't.
Apart from insisting on installing the wrong video drivers for my motherboard which resulted in a very bad display pattern, I didn't like having to use the search facility for things I never had to search for before. What's that all about?
Clicking buttons on the start menu so I could find things that were hidden in another section of it, oh my goodness, now it's all changed and I can't find anything. What was it I was supposed to click on again!?
Clicking on all the buttons on the start menu and I couldn't find the original list. Pah!!!!! Reboot.
Right then, lets connect to my VPN. Where is it? Ah, there it is. Put in password, oh bo**ocks, it won't connect. Oh, more bo.......... it won't do anything now. Reboot.
OK, lets delete it and set it up again. Right, let's connect, enter password. Even more bo......... it still won't connect, a.n.d .......... Reboot.
OK, repeat steps above BUT, don't put in any credentials. Let's try to connect now - put in credentials - hey, it's connected yahayyy. What a palarva. Now I have to put in both user name AND password as I'm connecting or it won't work. That's poor, very poor!
After a few weeks of putting up with this, we both had enough. Lets revert back to Windows 7.
Haha, That's another game Microsoft screwed up. After reverting back, it now reports my machine has a pirate copy of Windows on it and I need to buy a new licence.
Well, I only have two words for that and it involves sex and travel.
All in all, Windows 10, to date, is definitely not an upgrade if you currently have Windows 7. Is it an upgrade to Windows 8? I think I prefer Windows 8 to 10 if I'm really honest.
Who knows, maybe they'll have got it working by next July when your free upgrade deadline is due but don't hold your breath. Microsoft gave up on Windows 8 when they issued service pack 1, long before the 3 year cycle was up. It could happen with this as well.
If only they would only stop trying to fix things that ain't broke, who knows, we could end up with a decent version of Windows but until that day comes, Linux Mint is a brilliant alternative for most of you out there.
