Windows 10 is awesome. I love it. Granted, MS shouldn't be downloading it to people's computers without notification. But, then again, at least they're not auto installing it.

My hard drive crashed last year.
Instead of reinstalling 7, I opted for Vista.
Less fussy in some ways, more fussy in others.
Now I am glad I went that route.

Well, I never thought I'd read THAT sentence. I thought about 7 but then I went with VISTA??? :oops:
Oh, if you don't want win 10 (why? It's free. And it's zippy. And polished.) - then make sure Windows updates are set to important only. I.e. untick the "give me recommended updates" button.

^ Ah, but can you apply a Windows Classic theme? Windows Classic shall only be pried from my cold, dead mouse! Tongue

You people are crazy. I hated the Classic look then (one of the reasons I went to Macland for a while), just as I hated Windows XP's look and Vista's aero look, and not even nostalgia will make me hate it less now just because it's old. Vista was crap then, and although service pack 1 fixed a lot of the issues it never got better than what's basically a bad beta version of Windows 7. It's also approaching end of life, although you have a year and a half to upgrade until it's unsupported, aka virus heaven. Windows 7 is a lot worse than people think, we've just learned to navigate around the convoluted menus and make sense of the nonsense over the years.

I see no reason to not update to Windows 10 apart from privacy issues, and you can turn all of the offending stuff off anyway. 8 and 8.1 was a bold attempt at fixing some of the convoluted mess Windows had become, but Windows 10 is the first time they got it right and the first time since Windows 3.1 where the system menus make sense.

If there is anybody else like me who was clinging on to Windows7 (aka "the best OS ever made" IMO Wink ) and were concerned by the recent messages that Microsoft are stopping updates for it in early January in order to force you move over to Windows10 but you were worried about the switch over causing problems for all your in-the-works projects... then don't worry!

I updated a couple of days ago and I can't find any fanediting programs that don't work (I mainly use Vegas), or projects that won't open, or videos that won't render etc (so far anyway... touch wood). It was a quick update that I left running while I was out for a couple of hours and I came back and resumed editing without skipping a beat.

I still think when compared to the faultless, smooth running of W7, W10 is cr*p, slower to boot up, slower generally, glitchy, badly/over designed and frustrating but I can live with it.

You can still upgrade for free btw.
