Anything involving "WINDOWS" and "upgrade" is 100% guaranteed to cause problems. The end.

Not yet....

...but so far the words 'a bit shit' spring to mind...

It got the video resolution wrong and wouldn't let me change it
Edge is shite and doesn't allow me to click emoticons in the pub
My calendar widget has gone from my home screen... it asked me to select a calendar from the store and then said it couldn't find one

Apart from anything else, it asked me this morning when I wanted to upgrade - I selected tomorrow at 11am so it said "righto, I'll do it now then"... ::)

Microsoft asks for feedback...

Quote
I've been using Windows since Windows 386...

Great product, but I only use a fraction of the features. I now have a 3GHz Phenom and 12Gbyte of RAM to do what I did on a 1GHz Pentium with 1Gbyte of RAM and XP a few years ago...

Quite frankly, I'm not sure what it is doing with all that processing power...?

So what would make it better would be the ability to turn off vast swathes of features that I never use so I get a faster, more interactive experience with my hardware...
