From the sounds of things the next update is due to come with a raft of new features...  rubschin:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

I have to say that apart from having to track down a driver for my aged Notebook, it's all been untraumatic and the all new Windows 10 is better than Windows 7

This sort of means I'm saying "Well done Microsoft.  :thumbsup: "

I'll get over it

Why do I open my big fat mouth (well keyboard)

More broken than a broken thing  cussing:

Do not click that 'delete old copies of windows' prompt until you have a full system restore to go back to

In all honesty it's one of those things that I'd never think about doing, it takes up around 25Gb but unless you have a system with a single hard drive that has limited capacity it's not a problem.

Yep it's a 200Gb note book with idiot partitions that refused to update the Sat Nav because of insufficient C drive spare

Hit the clear up space icon and it just froze up and would not restart.  Did get to a go back to Win 7 icon but it's effed the registry profile

So I have Win 7 and a new identity

Today I will mostly be learning about registry merging and mending

I now have Windows 20

Well I've had to install it twice, rebuild a profile, fail to find the registry errors and all in all spend several hours of my life I won't get back

And it still wants that missing driver tracked down

But no data lost  :thumbsup:   eeek:

Last week, mine installed an upgrade then promptly shut down and would only let me log in as a guest. 10 minutes later it re-booted and has been fine since.  Even the touch pad scrolling works again.

Asus ACPI driver.  So I find such again and guess what game I get to play again

(back to Windows 7)

Still at least no shredded profile and registry this time.   So do I give up and stick with Windows 7 or do I twist and boldly go for Windows 30?
