You get the idea....

K.

I did an "in-place" upgrade from Windows 7 Professional back in July when it was RTM (which I had to downgrade to from Enterprise due the Where's Wally convolution/communication, coy to say the least, on how and when Enterprise customers could upgrade) Answer: talk to your IT guy.  Not helpful. 

Is it just me, or does every fricking month patch push by Microsoft for Windows 10 break the search function?  That's what it seems like.  Didn't work post upgrade.  Then a patch push fixed it.  Then a subsequent patch broke that fix. Then another patch fixed it.  Now it's broken again.

Microsoft, get you s#$K together please.  O yeah, and you might want to let your Office 365 support team in India know that that yes Virginia, Windows 10 has now been officially released and IS supported by Microsoft, so yes you need to support Office 365 desktop software installed on Windows 10 systems.

Rant finished.


Jim

Win10 generally just blows. We can start from just the user side of things. Nearly every touchpad is rendered useless because Win 8 screwed the edge touchscreen feature so instead of allowing one finger scrolling you have to do two finger scrolling...it is a pain. You can't hide updates any longer and unless you meter your WiFi or data connections, your only options for updates are automatic install or to be notified they will be automatically installed.

Can some one please tell me why is it necessary to download apps on a PC instead of going to http://www.whateveryouweretryingtodo.com ....download a Facebook app to further take system resources in the hopes you will fall for some in app Microsoft soft sell of something we don't need and never will. Updates crash the system...guess what...Microsoft sucks...lol

What I particularly like is the Russian roulette I play when I disable WiFi to just use ether net connection and how Airplane mode gets enabled/disabled/wifi turns on/ everything is turned off/ airplane mode won't turn off or is it on.
And what's with the VPN stuff 5 clicks in three different windows to enable an Azure IP SEC
Makes us look like fools to people who upgraded form Windows 7. Shortcut on desktop, click and connect.
Then there's word and excel with a laptop and a second screen. Yes let's open word/excel on the laptop screen in the dimensions of the 2nd screen.
The pause...where your doing something and it's like the laptop is respecting the devil as he walks by. So it pauses for some period of time. You can open the search app (which can't find Yogi Bear etc, see above) but proceeds to chew all disk and CPU resources until it can tell you Yogi Bear is in fact not in your laptop.
Thanks and good morning.
It was gonna be beautiful but I'll blame you two for ruining my day.

Hmmm, Windows 10 sounds like Vista in disguise...

Does the Windows Update allow you to pick and choose which updates to install now? Or is it a case of "I'm going to install every update, regardless of whether you want them or not"?

I had my Windows 10 test machine trying to install an "updated" printer driver. Even though it was older than the one I was running and I didn't want it anyway...

I'll stick with Windows 7 for now.

Windows 10 update planning is like two cows staring out over a gate.

I think you guys are missing all the fun and excitement that windows 10 brings to the table. It's refreshing to have an OS with a level of unpredictability I haven't seen since the days of windows 3. and search just reminds me of the old days of disabling it back in Windows 95. The first thing I check is if drivers have been updated and if they have been, then i start rolling things back And lets not forget that the majority of windows 10 security updates CANNOT be applied if you are using citrix products?...Oh well, at least its free.

Aw, c'mon, fellas.

What version of Windows did you trust before Service Pack 1?  [smile]

Wait for Drop Three or whatever they're going to call it. 

And if you want REAL Windows 10 drama, join the Insider Hub on Fast.  Yes, I AM that dumb. [smile]

For anyone who still plans to do an upgrade to 10, may I suggest that you do a clean install of whatever the current OS is first.  That way, unwanted whatever doesn't travel, to Windows 10.

Actually that's not true as far as I can see.

One thing they did very well in 10 was the in-place install.  Rollbacks are very simple, and the four-stage install answers pretty much all of my worries about in-place installs.  I've done it on about a dozen non-lab systems (that is, of a realistic complexity level and are thus actually a useful test) and we've been trouble-free.
