    D/L'ed it last night. Live Mail needs 10 secs or so to load. The clock's font has been changed to black on a black background. I googled it and every "cure" is either incompatible or just doesn't work. Not to mention my online gaming keeps getting disconnected.

    They do stuff like this on purpose, right? Whatever their reason is I don't know, but they know it's a bug. Why not a) fix it or b) even acknowledge it?

    I actually kind of like Win 10, it's certainly not the crazymaker that Win 8 was. I'm a Mac guy though I built my first PC a long, long time ago. Working with Macs back in the early 90s converted me... I'm surprised that I like Win 10 at all. It has its asswipe moments, and you wonder WTF MSFT was thinking (or not thinking) half the time. But it's not the clusterfuck that Win 8. MSFT just doesn't get it, at a fundamental, even elemental level. They're hardcore dothead nerds and have zero comprehension of what a PC ought to be. God bless Steve and Steve, may their names shine forever.

    Windows in general is like wiping your ass with poison ivy. It's a fucked up mess intended to be a genuine PITA, not user-friendly. But they made a fuck load of money on a shitty OS, which is difficult to argue with. AND they brought us Comic Sans... (shudder).

    Do you know why there was no Windows 9?

    Because seven ate nine.

    I heard a lot of horror stories about Windows 10 so I installed a program to block it so the didn't install it when I updated.

    You can revert back if you want. I think you have 60 days.

    I've had no issue personally.

    My kid is 9 and was just complaining that his Toshiba laptop at his mom's house updated to Windows 10 from 7 and he has stopped using it, because he doesnt know how to do anything. Now he sticks to his MacBook, iPod and iPad. :facepalm:

    I been a PC guy since 1998, last time I used a Apple was in high school 1996.

    I bought a used Surface RT tablet last year instead of dropping $500 for a new PC. And only issues I have are internet cause fucking! websites keep adding more crap. And I use desktop mode, rarely use App tile mode
    My PC is more than 10 years old and runs XP and I mainly use it for torrents, downloading and backing up files on DVD Rs. Surface can't do this.

    I'm a simple person and I love XP to death, XP resources are very low, I have my files in details, everything is organized, and everything set to mostly manual. I'm simple

    That beings said, I do want to buy a PC soon but my issues is win10 and win8.

    But I wish MS offered two types of OS, one in XP base and other for people who like all that fancy crap. Even if it meant the OS would permanently stay as XP I would be perfectly fine.

    Microsoft I BEG OF YOU, PLEASE UPDATE XP TO BE ABLE TO RUN CURRENT CODE AND PROGRAMS!!!!

    Most upgrades are fucking garbage. They fix one thing, and break another. They change shit around for no reason. This goes for Microsoft and Apple.

    I still have Windows 7 and I'm not upgrading until I absolutely have to.
