Windows 10



  • 10 looks decent. I wonder what kind of performance is to be seen since 8.1 seems to be pretty snappy as it is.



  • im still using windows 9



  • @JetBoom:

    I thought XP users were bad enough.

    But I like how all my programs decide to stop responding for no reason. Gives them a life of their own.



  • I’m still feeling the backlash from all of my company’s end users for migrating to a Windows 7/8, Server 2008/12 environment…

    Gross.



  • Any performance issues I had in video games were as simple as installing 8.1 drivers since I went into the Insider Program from Windows 7.



  • I still using Win7 FTW.

  • You know that means you’re part of a minority using windows 7 still, right?



  • I’ve had to help out two friends now after they’ve accepted the Win 10 update on their laptops and then they get stuck on black screens and never properly boot again


  • Game Admins

    Built a desktop with a fresh install of Windows 10, and upgraded three laptops (1, 3 and 7 years old). I’ve had no major issues with any of them and performance in the laptops have improved dramatically. The 7 year old laptop hangs for about 4-5 seconds when switching to a full screen application but other than that no grievances.

    If you’re still on Windows 7 and consider yourself “techy”, you’re probably not.



  • I installed windows 10 around the time it became available, though honestly I note no difference in my computers performance. Shortly afterwards my taskbar broke and my computer would refuse to update, nothing a factory reset couldn’t fix.



  • Windows 10 with Classic Shell does everything 7 does but faster. Dumb not to be on it.


  • Banned

    Enjoy your windows botnet lmaoo

    I used it until I realized it got rid of the awesome options you get from right clicking the start menu. If you’ve got windows 8/8.1/10, right click the start menu. It has almost everything you’ll use 90% of the time.



  • I use the run command for everything so to each your own.



  • So, building another computer, anyone got any good tips on how to make a clean Win 10 install and get it activated? Is KMSpico the best option?


  • Game Admins

    Either buy a copy of Windows 10, or upgrade it from an older version and then use the key to cleanly install it.



  • Can I just upgrade some shitty laptop with a legit windows copy and just take the key from that? That sounds too easy


  • Game Admins

    Rather use the “legit key” for the older operating system first and then upgrade that all on the new PC. The new key only works for the PC that first used it.



  • Windows 10 should be free until the 29th of July, after which you’ll either get prompts or windows will tell you that it’s not genuine.



  • @Benjy:

    Problem is the only legit keys I have are enterprise ones and enterprise is not upgradable to Windows 10. I have some laptops with keys bound to hardware but since the win10 keys you get are also bound to hardware it’s a no go.

    Eh, feels like I’ll just stick with 7 until I get some proper keys.
