What is Wrong With Windows 10

Now that I spent some time working with Windows 10 i formed my own opinion about it. Frankly speaking, I expected more from Microsoft. So in my opinion Microsoft's Windows 10 went wrong in the following:

1. Compatibility: Windows 10 upgrade is not compatible to all devices. For example, while it worked fine on my HP, it caused awful bugs on my Surface Pro 3;

2. It doesn't offer a new look. So the desktop looks exactly the same as in Windows 7, except for the start button which includes Windows Apps and more shortcuts;

3. It doesn't offer any significant options than Windows 8.1;

4. Multitasking s is gone. Which by the way one of the few good things about Windows 8.1. Now you can't open two apps at the same time;

5. The Integrated Cortana was not made available to users outside the US, which is ridiculous.

I am not saying that Windows 10 is a complete disaster, but it did not meet my expectations.

I think the biggest thing that Windows 10 was designed to do was introduce Windows users to the new Microsoft Edge browser. Why else would the free upgrades be available to one and all for a full 12 months? This "upgrade" wasn't about the consumer, it was about more profit for Microsoft, in my opinion.

I haven't noticed but this makes sense. Brilliant observation

Haha :D, seriously if you think about it, there is no better way to promote a washed-up browser.

I have an option to upgrade to Windows 10 on my computer but I am not taking it. I like Windows 7 and will stick with it as long as possible,

With the upgrade comes an option to downgrade to previous OS version within 30 days of the beginning of the trial. So you have nothing to lose. Just back up your files if you ever do.

In liked 8.0, and even 8.1 butb seeing as I don't have any Windows devices anyone- it doesn't even rely matter..

There are evidently a number of things causing concern; including the fact that they've built something into the agreement that they can disable 'pirated' or 'unauthorized' software and some 'peripheral' devices. So, 'compatibility' may actually get worse at some point. It simply feeds the idea that their primary purpose was to get 'everyone' on a single platform to make it 'easier' for them to then control, milk for data, force people into subscriptions, etc. In fact, some are claiming that 10 is really just "8.2" as a result. As far as I'm concerned, I have software that 10 won't run and have no desire to buy a subscription to get the newest version. I don't run multiple devices, which is supposed to be the true 'value' of 10. In other words, I see no reason to 'upgrade.'

I am new to this and in fact I have never upgraded to Windows 10 yet. Thanks for sharing this

I still have Windows7 and have no intention of upgrading to Windows 10 as much as it is being shoved into my face now.

Shadi wrote on August 18, 2015, 3:59 AM

Yes I hate that popup asking me to upgrade.

Shadi wrote on August 18, 2015, 4:02 AM

By the way the interface is pretty much like Windows 7. So in Windows 10 you won't notice much difference in that regard.

Paulie wrote on August 18, 2015, 4:05 AM

I still am not going to upgrade because I have heard too many horror stories about Windows8.

Shadi wrote on August 18, 2015, 6:49 AM

As a Widows 8 user I can assure you they are true lol

I found myself cursing 10, but I think I am slowly getting the hang of it.
