In Topic: Your Preferred Os And Why

Today, 01:36 AM

 

Thanks to this post, I decided to turn back to Windows 8.1 as there is nothing too enticing for me in Windows 10 and not happy of spending time to make an OS barely tolerable.

 

Windows 10 is more tolerable even in it's default install than Windows 8.1, and any OS will have you spend an hour or two configuring it to your liking (called "customizing") post-installation.

 

If your choice is Win8.1 or Win10, then Win10 is superior, by almost every metric. The vague licensing confusion and the telemetry is the only bad spots, and a little work makes those problems much reduced in consequence.

 

 

 

Couldn't disagree more, Windows 10 needs many steps to become barely tolerable and I am ok with customizing ofc but not big fan of dealing with Group Policy ( not big deal but what I don't like is pointless restrictions ) even for basic things.

 

And now performance is far better in Windows 8.1 (using a Skylake Xeon E3)

 

When comparing with 8.1 for Windows 10's superiority,

 

- W10 Start Menu is not bad but not crucial for me as well. In time I used W8 , noticed that I don't use Start Screen much and I like it as I am used to from Windows Phone.

- I couldn't care less about Cortana and Notifications

- Windowed apps are big plus for W10 but I don't use apps at all as I prefer offline account, was just using Edge which had an annoying experience

- Automatic updates are problematic in W10 and there is no easy way of hiding updates.

- Multiple desktop isn't like what I dreamed of ( I was expecting different desktops you can put different icons/folders to each one so I could separate workspaces for each project )

- Anniversary Update doesn't look like bringing something noticeable, so there is no hope W10 will be better in short time for me.

In before I mention of $4-$5 ticket price that I avoid not because its much but because I hate feeling of being fooled by a bad movie. And last movie I went was one of the worst ever,

Star Wars : A New Hope 2 (aka The Force Awakens) :/


In Topic: Windows 7 Pro Or Windows 10 Pro?

On my own, I tried to make Windows 10 as private as possible. (Disabled defender/automatic updates/somehow telemetry and privacy tools, using offline account and no apps beside Edge.)

 

I think it is something you can live with atm but we can't know what will change in future, Anniversary Update is also about to come.

My preferred OS would be Windows 8.1 (the last gentlemen Windows) but I sadly use Windows 10 without claws (as much as possible without apps, telemetry, defender etc) because I was intending to develop Windows apps (now I don't) , use multiple desktops (nowhere near what I imagined) but seems I got used to a bit. But nowadays I really question why I don't roll back to Windows 8.1
