Windows 10 the Good, Bad and Ugly!

by tagiscom 31 replies
Seems to be two camps about w10, (10) some like it and others hate it.

I tend to hate it, because of its clunky navigation, mish-mash of transparencies, and Photoshop destroying capabilities.

But it is best to get a second opinion, or several....




I know this kid likes to say "so Stupid" but he has a lot of good reasons.

Then we have this poor guy....



But to be fair this guy likes 10, well....


And this one, which took to long to start, but l don't think that he was happy?


And this, (for some reason YT is slow tonight) but l am pretty sure this guy had serious software issues, and suffered from the looping issue l had but not as bad.


Look like satisfied, customers to me!


As some of these people says, "don't update to 10, you will regret it."

    You found some isolated issues of people who had problems with Windows 10.

    The one guy didn't have any of his passwords backed up. That is his dumbass fault.

    Some people don't like the forced updates. For 99.9% of users, it's a nonissue.

    I can find just as many people that say positive things about Windows 10.

    You are just mad because Adobe has let down its customers by not issuing an update to CS2, and you refuse to upgrade to one of their new versions that works just fine in Windows 10.

    Oh, and here are a ton of people that hate Windows 7.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=why+...te+windows+7&*

    And we cannot forget about the people that hate Windows XP...

    Just because someone makes a video about it doesn't mean it represents the majority's feelings.

    I started back in the 90's with MS-DOS. I have at least briefly used every MS operating system since then except Vista and maybe one or two others.

    In my opinion... for what I use my computer for... in my world... W10 is the best operating system I have ever used. It has worked perfectly with every one of many dozens of software programs I regularly throw at it. I have never had an issue with any updates. It is the fastest os I have ever used.

    To be fair I did not watch the videos. Other people's computer problems don't usually interest me. I do know a few people that have had problems but they are always using older computers, software that isn't current, or they have tried to needlessly "customize" or tweak W10.

    Ok, ok, fair point, although XP and w7 are actually the best out of the bunch, so some idiots will hate anything.

    And you might see it as Adobe not issuing an update, l see it as an intentional security update that does nothing for the OS, that l can see, but it cripples cs2 every time.

    Installed the update on my old Laptop, and every time without fail it stuffed it up, (worked perfectly before that).

    There is big money here for Adobe, to suck up to Microsoft to cripple Adobe suite cs2, (which still costs around $2,500, updated version only, the old one isn't available anymore).

    Virtually all Laptops out there with the exception of Apple, can now cripple $2,5k software within a few days of installing it. The software worked perfectly on 10, at least til the next day, and the first update was a sneaky one, l didn't even know that it did it, but the next day l could certainly see its affects.

    And it stuffs up Photoshop, Illustrator.

    You might see it as a harmless update, but considering how fast it crippled it, l think otherwise.

    Apparently Adobe isn't doing any stand alone versions of Adobe Suite packages anymore, (no surprizes there) the latest one is all cloud only.

    So l p**** away $700 a year in order to use Photoshop and illustrator, F*** that!

    I got the latest Toshiba, pulled that ugly crap off, (if some users like ugly then,...more power to them) installed Windows 7 Pro, permanently turned off updates, and saved myself $2,5k!


    The other thing about 10 is it spies on your every move, l guess that means that some here also like someone looking over there shoulders, and throwing advertising at them if they install something new?

    After installing cs2, l had two adobe ad's pop up, every time l turned on the machine. The ad's weren't there when l installed the 1 month free trial version.

    Even without the cs2 issue, navigation is clunky, having to scroll down trice for System, is annoying. Try it on 7, much better.

    Try out the calculator on 10 and compare that with 7. 10 has an ugly white space around it, 7 has a beautiful transparent space around it.

    I guess some will love anything that moves?

    Best so far......l doubt that anyone can argue with that!

    Same old same old, you hate Windows 10. Nothing new under the sun. Some people like to hear them talk. Mean while the rest of us who use 10 enjoy it. Heard the same thing to about Vista and what came out of Vista - Windows 7.

    My laptop top had 8 on it and it auto updated to 10 it works better. Same with the desktop it had Windows 7 Pro on it, with upgrade to 10 already to be installed once Micro soft released it. Same thing the Windows 10 OS is better then both.

    Here we go again. 10 is the last Windows, they will continually update it, upgrade it until something entirely new is created. Running Windows 7 or 8 so you can run your 11 year old version of CS2 is using a ticking timebomb. Your machine will die, support for 7 and 8 will disappear. No new machine will run it.

    A few years and your stuffed and you will have to buy the new version of Adobe.

    In any-case, your beef should not be with Windows/Microsoft, it should be with Adobe for charging a premium price for it, for having the audacity not to support an 11 year old version.

    Thing is, it is a Premium, Professionally used product, it is the industry standard. (My wife uses the suite as a Professional Graphic Designer in the College educational system that we both work it.)

    If you want it, you have to pay just like anyone else. Adobe can be excused for moving on in 11 years. Perhaps you should too.

    In any case, the sort of stuff you produce for clients could easily be created using much cheaper clones that are around. You should seriously investigate some of them.

    I think you are so entrenched in what you have, so locked in and so familiar with it's usage that you are scared to try anything else. Ultimately you will lose.

    Get a loan save up and buy Adobe if you must have it, or pay the yearly Cloud rental fee, the way the industry is moving anyway.

    But do not knock the platform it runs on. Do not take out your frustrations on Windows or Microsoft. Completely the wrong way of looking at it.

      Update it, lol. Most updates are data fluff, or do nothing, and l can update any drivers for w7p if l need to.

      It won't stuff up, w7 is very stable, and XP is as well, probably explains why XP on my PC that hasn't been updated for 2 years is running perfectly!

      And on the rare occasion that cs2 stuffs up l just reinstall it.

      Unless l want to do logos, very little difference between cs2 and 5.

      I have tried all other options, cs2 stands alone, unfortunately.


      Well Adobe worked with Microsoft to deliver this s**t so l am p***d a both companies.

      I think you are so entrenched in what you have, so locked in and so familiar with it's usage that you are scared to try anything else. Ultimately you will lose.
      Scared no, the closest thing is Gimp, and that is crap by comparison.

      Ultimately l will lose, not really, my current laptop will probably last me til 2025, and the suite with it. After that, if 10 is still creeping about, with no other options l will go over to Apple.

      And be forced to buy cs5, so l won't lose with being cornered into using a crap OS, but will have to buy cs5 in about 7 years time, when l am in a much better financial position and can afford it.

    In my point of view window 10 is not suitable for all because windows 10 has software issue as well as the looping issue.

      Thanks Raji96, l was beginning to think that it was "I Love Windows 10" fan club over here.

      Probably more like, "l installed it, so l am trying to love it" sort of deal.


      I got it with my Laptop, and used it for a few days. I agree that on the surface it looks nice, but dig deeper, and the bland tabs and frames appear. Some may not care about aesthetics, but l am not going to be stuck with seeing that for the foreseeable future.

      And in some instances, (l did some research) the blue screen looping issue may resolve itself, (may being the key word).

      From what l recently read the updates are becoming more aggressive, or updating to 10, is falling in the recommended category, and Microsoft is also getting sneaky and hiding it.

      One person set some updates going and by the time he looked at his Laptop 10 was 10% installed.

      He was using his Laptop for something important and didn't want to update, so let's just say the grammer became colorful.

    I just took the leap from Win 7 to 10. I did some research and found out that the LTSB Enterprise version is the only option for me. You can easily stop Microsoft "spying" on you. And it has no adware and bloatware you find in home and pro.

    Edit: It runs perfectly on my old AMD system. No driver issues. I even installed an old Windows 7 driver for my soundcard.

      Interesting, keep us updated.

      I had Windows 10 Pro on my one, didn't make much of a difference though.

    Yes, it is probably the best one, but it still has fleas.

    https://www.howtogeek.com/273824/win...tsb-explained/

    Need to be a company with this and that to get it, but it sounds like a version that won't go into an endless loop one day?

    It also is relatively crap free, (l got a fresh install of w7 pro, so no crap) but it does not stop security updates, and you have more control over data being sent to Microsoft, but not 100% control.

    So there is a Rolls Royce version, but still a lemon.

    A security update is the one that crippled cs2 suite, so better but....

        Arrrrm, it said 90 days?

        It seems like a risky way to get a half decent version of it, especially when updates cannot be 100% turned off?

        It all boils down to what happens when the blue screen comes up?

        If it loops forever, then as some else mentioned, you are stuffed. Probably have to click on restore factory settings, while keeping your files an settings, (well, most, some things do disappear).

        An update comes up, wrecks some old software, you use system restore, it destroys it, you undo it, and it blue screens it. You revert back to FC, and lose some data, or lose something critical forever?

        Compare that with w7, (assuming that updates are on) no blue screen endless looping crap, just a system, checking HDD, blah, blah on startup, then all is fine, (or you at least have enough control left to try a few other options to fix the software).

    This video pretty much sums up w10.

    As l said before, 7 is the most stable one.

    The blue screen of death, and other serious issues. Yes, l used it for a few days and had the blue screen one.

    Also interesting what he said about Apple. Yep, l will go over to Apple in the next 7 years, unless Microsoft, gets their act together.

      Linux is a good operating system and it does not even require an antivirus software. while windows OS require antivirus software. Only a few viruses are developed for Linux and linux OS developers frequently launch new patches to keep the OS secure. But most of the windows OS software are not even compatible with linux OS. But we can resolve this problem by utilizing a Virtual Box. We can install windows OS in Virtual box and use windows OS inside Linux OS.

    Here's what I hate about Windows 10: I want certain images to open in Irfanview, and I want PDF files to open in Adobe Reader - but no matter how I change the file associations Windows 10 always changes them back to the default app (Windows Image Viewer for images and Edge for PDF files).

    This may be my last Windows computer.

      Yes, others have had similar issues, they have some games installed, and the inevitable update comes along, then half of their games are thrashed.

      So, he installs all drivers again,.....and eventually since w10 is spyware, it installs the same updates again, and again the same games are unusable.

      True some will garbage w7, but that OS is not forced upon you, and updates can be turned off, although it generally does not go on a rampage like 10 does.

    Good,Bad and Ugly points of window 10 are given as:

    Good:
    1. Continuum
    It should be no surprise that Windows 10s strongest feature is the one that Microsoft has been singing about all this time. Dubbed Continuum, it is an attempt to reconcile the disparate worlds of Windows 7 and Windows 8. In a more concrete sense, it means that there should be very little distinction between the regular win32 apps and the touch-friendly modern apps. If youre in Desktop Mode, modern apps appear inside movable and resizable windows like any other.
    2. Cortana
    Cortana also shines when you ask her something. What that something is almost limitless. She can do math, web queries, send e-mails by voice, etc. But probably the most important function is actually something not tied to Cortana and works even without her: search.
    3. Action Center

    Finally! No more wondering where that ephemeral notification went or what it was trying to say in the first place. Windows now has a place where almost all notifications are stashed away until they are ready for your attention and action.
    4. Start Menu
    5. Task View and Virtual Desktops
    The Bad
    1. Everything is new

    It seems only yesterday that Windows 8 was released and yet here is Windows 10 to confound users. Well, at least now everyone is on equal footing. Those coming from Windows 7 who have never touched Windows 8 will find things both familiar and disconcerting at the same time. Those who have learned the ropes of Windows 8 will also find some common ground yet still get lost due to hard earned habits.
    2. Start Menu/Screen

    The new Start Menu and Start Screen are both a boon and a bane. In trying to appeal to all types of users, Microsoft may have had to make concessions. Both are but a shadow of their Windows 7 and Windows 8 counterparts, shaving off simplicity and direct accessibility for the sake of a common interaction paradigm.
    3. Windows Store

    The new Windows Store is shiny and admittedly has a few more tenants but is still relatively a ghost town compared to, say, the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store. This is more a work in progress than an actual flaw, though you would have presumed that by now Microsoft would have herded more high-profile names.
    4. Mail app

    Why Microsoft chose to put out a Mail Windows app that was clearly worse than its predecessor will forever remain a mystery. In the transition to the Universal App Platform, it seems that Windows 10s default email app has shed off more than excess baggage.
    5. Default Settings
    It is natural that Microsoft would choose some setting that it thinks is best for its users, but sometimes you really have to wonder what fuels those decisions. While upgrading from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10 is a huge jump, youd still expect that it would preserve your previous choices, or at least be courteous enough to ask first. Instead, Windows 10 just simply plows through.

    The Ugly
    1. Privacy
    One could probably say that Windows 10 is not a privacy conscious OS by default. Yes, it has all the switches to enable or disable potential privacy and security risks, but they all default to on, from serving you ads to gathering up your personal data to sharing some bits and pieces to your friends.
    2. Wi-Fi Sense

    Wi-Fi Sense is one of those more worrying privacy options that Microsoft has chosen to enable by default for the sake of convenience. We wont dwell on what was already said in the past. Suffice it to say, its a strange feature to have turned on by default anyway.
    3. P2P Update

    Somewhat less controversial but still a puzzling default choice is the new way to speed up downloads of updates. And by that we really mean slow down your Internet connection. Microsoft got this fancy idea to use peer-to-peer or P2P technology (yes, the very same used for those bad, bad torrents) to offload the burden of distributing updates from its servers. And guess who it offloads them to.
    4. Forced Updates

    Again a highly contentious topic. There really is no way around this, unless, of course you meticulously watch every update and delay them even before they hit. Or you can opt to leave your system vulnerable for long periods of time by delaying updates for several months.
    5. Settings vs. Control Panel

    If you have dived into the new Settings app by now, you will probably notice a pattern. Not only is the app itself filled with pages and pages of options, they also link out to Control Panel settings. Yes, the Control Panel still lives, despite Settings getting a revamp and more features compared to Windows 8.

      Don't really care about apps,so...

      And as for Cortana, maybe it is better than the w7 Pro one, (l have messed about with it, and it does a pretty good job in recognizing what you want, but it is cute but l wouldn't use it much, if at all). Yeah, l know C, can find stuff, so l guess that it is better, but l will survive without it.

This is more a work in progress than an actual flaw, though you would have presumed that by now Microsoft would have herded more high-profile names.
      4. Mail app

      Why Microsoft chose to put out a Mail Windows app that was clearly worse than its predecessor will forever remain a mystery. In the transition to the Universal App Platform, it seems that Windows 10s default email app has shed off more than excess baggage.
      5. Default Settings
      It is natural that Microsoft would choose some setting that it thinks is best for its users, but sometimes you really have to wonder what fuels those decisions. While upgrading from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10 is a huge jump, youd still expect that it would preserve your previous choices, or at least be courteous enough to ask first. Instead, Windows 10 just simply plows through.
      Yes apps store, lol, didn't bother with it, since most of the apps shown were pretty useless.

      The Ugly
      1. Privacy
      One could probably say that Windows 10 is not a privacy conscious OS by default. Yes, it has all the switches to enable or disable potential privacy and security risks, but they all default to on, from serving you ads to gathering up your personal data to sharing some bits and pieces to your friends.
      2. Wi-Fi Sense

      Wi-Fi Sense is one of those more worrying privacy options that Microsoft has chosen to enable by default for the sake of convenience. We wont dwell on what was already said in the past. Suffice it to say, its a strange feature to have turned on by default anyway.
      3. P2P Update


      4. Forced Updates

      Again a highly contentious topic. There really is no way around this, unless, of course you meticulously watch every update and delay them even before they hit. Or you can opt to leave your system vulnerable for long periods of time by delaying updates for several months.
      5. Settings vs. Control Panel

      If you have dived into the new Settings app by now, you will probably notice a pattern. Not only is the app itself filled with pages and pages of options, they also link out to Control Panel settings. Yes, the Control Panel still lives, despite Settings getting a revamp and more features compared to Windows 8.
      Yep, privacy, my accountant talked to me about his wife using w10, and every time she went to a politically risky site, Microsoft would try to block it, or crap on, (she is doing a criminal investigation course).

      THis OS is like Chrome on crack, and once you have it, you need to be 100% nice, or you will get in trouble if you go anywhere Microsoft doesn't want you to go, (Microsoft are ape - s**t about such stuff).

      Someone should go to an Apple site on 10, and see what happens?


      I also tried to turn off every privacy setting l could find before installing cs2, but it made no diff, l got advertising when switching on related to adobe, and a day later cs2 was trash.

    Windows 10 is more flexible then its predecessors. Windows 10 has better overall security, sand-boxed apps, better performance, memory compression algorithms that make much more efficient use of a systems RAM in addition to a wealth of new input. The cons of windows 10 are some bugs that require fixing but if Microsoft fix those bugs then windows 10 is not bad at all.

    Interesting, l have looked into Linux, and it isn't very good for video editing and some software.

    Might work well for the average user, but me, probably not.

    Apparently ANY new laptop manafactured after October last year, has to have w10 on it. Explains why l got stuck with it, at least initially.

    And W7 Pro does allow virtual XP. 10 doesn't, but third party software can be installed.

    Although updates will probably get through to both.

    Also found that about 20% is using 10, and 50% are still using 7, and the rest probably Ubantu or Linux.

    The majority probably left updates on, and got 10 automatically. Also read about some trying to revert 10 back to 7. Sometimes that doesn't work.

    They, Microsoft also developed the ugly facades found on some w10 tabs, etc.

    They called it blocking, for want of a better word.

    And one of its latest updates, Cortana is impossible to switch off 100%. So turn it off, and keyboard strokes, or possibly conversations will go to their servers.

      Yes, l looked into the haters of w7, and w10 haters, l think that there are a few more 10,s than 7.

      One guy hated going from 8 to 7, and losing some data.

    My computer has Windows 10 but the sign in screen no longer automatically switches to a new photo scene like I have seen other computers do. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?
