    Windows 10....

    So who is (or is going to) be running it to fill us all in on if we should just stick with 7?

    I would like to know as well. Last thing I want to do is install a new OS that will have PB issues like Windows 8 did upon release. Let's not forget how bad Vista was upon release as well...

    No problems here. I did have to update my video card driver. The only games Ive tried are CoD5 and GTA 5. Most likely due to the driver but I seem to have gained about 10% on my framerate. Voice activation with cortana worked well. One minor issue is that EVGA precision wont load at startup.
    CoD 4 gave a PB error when connecting. A reinstall of PB seemed to fix the problem.

    Did MS 'hide' more stuff from the user? Or do you have all the tools to do whatever needed? I fear they will 'mac' it like they tried to do with win8 ...

    Everything I need is there. If you right click the start menu you get the system menu. Was there something in particular you were asking about? @Arbo

    Fun with cortana ha ha ha. Guess we're not there quite yet. If you have kids make sure you have safe search on or she will point you in the right direction for adult content.

    Gaming wise I havent had any unfixable errors. Going all the way back to the first Splinter Cell and Wolf:ET everything worked.

    Re: Windows 10....

    For those of you that have Windows 8 and can't stand it, this may be one great update for you. If you are using windows 7, I wouldn't dare upgrade to it for a while. I have been running the insider preview for a long while. If you want to try it out, Microsoft has a trial version of Windows 10 Enterprise you can test out as a separate install.

    Here are a few things I will point out.
    Advantages of Windows 10 for gaming is that the Directx 12 is supposed to be up to %50 faster in existing games using newer graphics cards. I can't remember the models but you can look it up or if I can find that link again, I will post it. Windows 10 loads up real fast even on old computers with hard drives.

    Now for the disadvantages..
    1. It will auto update the os. This could be real bad if MS oooops an update and screwed up millions of PCs! Enterprise versions can set updates as they wish.
    2. It will by default use your pc to distribute updates across your network and out to the internet. You can disable it in though. I will have to look it up and post about it in a little while. Just imagine, If you were using a device tethered to your pc that has a bandwidth cap, oh lets says 2 gigs and the isp charges you for each gig you use past that, this one feature might just cost you $$$. I guess MS decided Hey we can save our selves some money on our bandwidth costs by letting the customers serve updates.
    3. For those of you that love Solitaire... um, you will have to pay to use it! lol
    4. There may be some compatibility issues with some games from what I have heard. Not sure which ones.

    I can't think of other problems I have had off the top of my head, but I will post here if I do. I will also provide links sometime today or tomorrow referring to the advantages and disadvantages I mentioned.

    They changed the autoupdate for the OS. You can disable this now.

    I have yet to see any compatibility issues.

    I ran the insider preview for a while as well. The final version is fairly stable and low bugs. With exception of that major nvidia issue. Which is what prompted the autoupdate change.


    So far for me, coming from 7, I am happy and the pros outweigh the cons. Running dx12 and cannot wait to see the difference for myself. But like all OS's, it will come down to personal preference.

    @Gefecht so if you have an nvidia card, don't bother until they get it all worked out with the drivers?

    It was fixed day one. I run nvidia myself. It had to do with windows overwriting the nvidia drivers with their own and causing crashes.
