Great looking forward to that upgrade.
True, like updating a iPhone to a newer version. Always better to wait. I will wait about a month before I update my computer to 10.hdtvfan0001 said:Best advice so far.
It's for this very reason that rushing to upgrade is not prudent for most folks - you have a year.
The biggest hiccups early on will likely come from shortcomings of drivers for various hardware, including printers, monitors, cameras, video cams, etc. Individual companies will be updating their drivers over time...but only a limited number will have Win 10 supported day one.
Another consideration is the change to Windows Edge (from Internet Explorer earlier versions). For those using Chrome or something else...there still may be some "hiccups" in the beginning days or weeks after Win 10 is available (end of this month).
Bottom line...few pros and more cons to being "first on your block" to have Win 10 installed.
Back when we had regular vehicles before those junky imports started showing up not very good of a reputation. But, now with those junky Toyotas, Mazdas, Nissans a Rambler would put all of those junky cars to shame. Been better if this country would is those imports would never been sold here.yosoyellobo said:What is wrong with a 1968 Rambler American?
If I had this option in my Dell Desktop for a free update I would decline because I HATE the menu system in Windows 7, 8.1. I would defiantly stay with XP.jimmie57 said:I cranked up my old Dell running Windows XP this morning. I do this every now and then just to see that it still works. It did after reseating the video card.
After the 3 updates that it had to load and install I did not get the Windows 10 free upgrade sign.
Of course this is what I expected.
I had the same email. But, the web page displayed fine. There are about 15 questions with answers.phrelin said:I was looking forward to it. Now I'm not so sure...
I got an email tonight from Microsoft with the subject line "You've reserved Windows 10 - what's next?" it has this in it: "Here are some common questions about the upgrade process. Click on the links for answers." I clicked on all four links and they linked me to this:
I wonder if Satya Nadella got one of those emails.... :sure:
Also the menus and directory listings are much better on Windows XP.dpeters11 said:Quite a few hated the changes from XP to 7. UAC, the change from Documents and Settings to Users etc. Others didn't like the UI change.
The web page you have when clicking a n the address nothing happens. The web page is in blue but does not work.phrelin said:For a trip down memory lane, ZDNet has a series of screenshots from Windows 1.0 through 10.0 which you can view unless, of course, Windows 10.0 starts installing and screws up.
Nothing wrong with Windows 8 or 8.1. Well, not near as good as Windows XP though.mrknowitall526 said:We have a small Acer laptop that we got free as a result of a class action lawsuit about floppy drives in eMachines brand computers being faulty, and it has been used very little because of Windows 8. Never even bothered to go to 8.1. I mentioned to my mother that we could get 10 for free and she said to give it a try. I booted it up last night and there were 111 updates to install. Restarted and there were another 6. Finally got it to start downloading 8.1 this afternoon and now it's installing that. Hopefully 8.1 to 10 goes a little faster.
Same here. I like Classic Shell. Like your installation Classic Shell installed perfectly.Rich said:BTW, I had no problems with the classic shell on my cobbled together desktop. It loaded right along with W10 and works just as well as it did before. Made me happy.
140.00 great price but not much use because of the tinsy winsy hard drive.bobnielsen said:I recently bought a cheap ($140 Amazon Prime deal of the day) Lenovo S21E-20 laptop with Windows 8.1. It only has a 20 GB SSD but had the icon for the Windows 10 upgrade. It downloaded the file and then said there wasn't enough room to install. I then tried installing from a USB thumb drive but that also failed. It said it was ~900 MB short but I hadn't added any apps or other files and didn't want to risk deleting something critical. I have used it a bit and 8.1 doesn't seem all that bad after all.
What differences will this update make?dpeters11 said:The first large update to Windows 10, called "Threshold Wave 2" is expected around October or November. This will also happen in 2016 with Redstone in July/August and Redstone Wave 2 in a similar Oct/Nov timeframe.
