Let's be honest /go/ - Worth it update to Windows 10 now, or is better wait for some more?
I don't care about the stupid meme, and linuxfags go fuck yourself. Idiots.
I just want to know if is secure (stable) for work on it.
I use W10 solely as a gaming platform, and I haven't had a single OS-related crash. Some programs might need to be run in compatibility mode, which is no big deal. If you don't care about MS spying on you, then I say go for it.
>Start menu is back
>Supported for life
>Constantly updated and improved
What is there not to like about it? Windows 10 is free and great.
It depends OP. Are you upgrading on a laptop? If so, it is absolutely not worth it. The constant upgrades destroy your battery life and everything in W10 just feels unfinished. For desktop, it's okay, but I would say wait it out a bit more to squash all the bugs. For me, explorer crashes constantly and everything in W10 just feels terribly coded.
I might be okay with it if they were just sending info about performance. I might even be okay with it if they just sent specific text data.
But they literally spy on you through any mics or cameras
Keyboard or touch? Windows 10 sucks without a keyboard and mouse. With 8 they went overboard with touch, now with 10 they've gone too far in the other direction. You can't even use the touch version of IE on 10. If you have a tablet and enjoy trying to hit tiny buttons with your finger, 10 is for you. For a desktop/laptop with a keyboard and pointing device, it's fine.
>never even think twice about the $30 or so that i spend on snacks and food everyday
>get triggered by thought of having to pay .99 for an app
i know what you mean bro.
>It's hilarious to think that a lot of us here have more than enough money for $1200+ setups yet balk at the thought of having to pay for an OS.
so i'm not the only selective cheapskate on /g/. I've spent more than $1800 on hardware in the last year yet im running a dazloaded win 7 for some reason
I had a tablet with full Windows 8 and I had a similar experience. Buttons were too small, scrolling didn't always work right, etc. I ended up getting rid of it because it was a hugely frustrating experience compared to an Android tablet.
MS is really pushing Edge hard though, and by default IE isn't even in the start menu. Does Edge really not work with touch?
I used to do it cause the activation process was so shit back then, I even had a legit key at some point, but had to keep calling microsoft to reset activations everytime I did a complete format of my main hard drive.
Now it's tied to my microsoft account so idgaf.
It's just another Windows 8, nothing more. Sure, they gave us something resembling the old start menu, but that's the only difference. It has the same illogical interface as Windows 8, the same shitty control panel, the same performance issues, the same unresponsive UI thanks to the metro shit they shove down your throat, even less backwards compatibility and the same overall design aesthetic that will make your eyes bleed.
If Windows 10 is really the last Windows OS, I'm switching to Linux when Windows 7 support ends.
It still uses the faked W7 code for the W10 upgrade and it is in Microsoft's database now right?
Who knows when Microsoft will pull the plugs for us.
Yeah the last Windows I paid for was 98.
and I found pic related a couple of months ago while cleaning. DON'T STEAL MY PRODUCT CODE OR I'M GONNA GET MAD.
>MS is really pushing Edge hard though
Edge blows, i would rather use Netscape navigator or lynx than edge, why would you take the greatest internet browser of all time (IE11, fuckers cant prove me wrong) and replace it with shit
