    It seems that Microsoft is having a hard time retreiving more new users on Windows 10, the operating system install base has been stuck on 400 million for four months now. Evere since microsoft ende...

    Every time i install windows 10, after a week i'm going back to 8.1. I think it's the best worst operating system microsoft ever released

    Sucks for those not wanting to change i guess.

    I'm extremely happy with Windows 10 for atleast 8 months now.

    The biggest problem is that their is no joined up thinking/approach between the different teams working on windows 10 so every time they do a patch update it creates problems and bugs.

    Not sure what m$ expected to happen, with a spying, restrictive OS that cripples everybody but enterprise users with unnecessary driver / update pushes that bring more problems than they solve, a still more than slowly picking up dx12 support by devs and games, and little else for the average user to consider when switching.

    Truth be told, m$ failed at both, lack of windows phone sales and of win10 PC adoption.

    And this is what happens when you try to force an OS with tons of unnecessary mobile garbage baked into it for a desktop along with all the adware, spyware etc also baked into it.
    In the end microsoft will just blame the consumer for their failures, they always do eventually.

    It's ok. Not great, not bad either.

    I really wish they'd bring Edge browser upto par with IE11, though, like favourites bar.

    I experienced the blurry font issue but I'm running two screens at different resolutions\scaling and it strangely only affected my non scaled screen, the only way to get it to work was to plug my second screen in to the onboard adaptor (I'm sure it's driver related though as my old AMD didn't have the issue).

    Other than that once I'd disabled all the crud etc w10 is fab :D

    Ewwww 8.1? 10 is better in every single way. If you're going to revert to an older OS, then Win 7 is the place to go

    I was very slow to adopt Win 10 and was very happy with Win 7. I never thought I'd like Win 10 but it's the best OS yet. Once you know how to turn off all the crap that's not needed it's great. Wouldn't go back to Win 7 now. But 8.1 just no. No.

    Nope. Not for me. I own all of windows versions. Best so far is 8.1. 7 was good too but not better.
    With 10 there's too many bugs in almost everything especially with GPUs and drivers

    Millenium was good with lots of RAM. That was the problem with them.
    I had them running stable and fast after i figured it out and added more RAM. Can't remember how much though..

    LoL just one problem you have Windows 7 and Vista in wrong places
    Hmm so Windows 3.1 or 95
    Win98 SE <-- Best pre 2000 windows
    Windows Millennium <-- Failed Experiment (The only problem it had was the fact that they remove Real Mode Dos and ME end up being dubbed as the "Mistake Edition" because it LoL even I whine cry in beta testing that it was be a big mistake)
    What the Hell No NT4 and 2000 LoL
    Windows XP <-- Best after 21 century windows (Not to Me I didn't care for cartoonish look I hate the product activation carp)
    Windows Vista <-- Unfinished (More like a Major Disaster I even drop out of beta is was so bad)
    Windows 7 <-- Holly grail of windows foundation (Yup it was in tell MS f***up the windows update and stop give us services pack cuases kind goof issues make it taking for every with Windows update)
    Windows 8/8.1 <-- for tablet use or touch screen monitor (I got agree with on that one)
    Windows 10 <-- Unfinished, Alpha stage, tons of bugs DX12 only benefit (That true that about only benefit beside a few other thing)

    They counted on smartphone sales that never happened because they themselves abandoned the Lumia brand on purpose. There will be a mobile device from Microsoft at around November I guess, along with a new UI and win32 compatibility. It's really then that things will be interesting.

    PS: Vista wasn't so bad as people make them out to be and they are the basis of all Windows versions after them. Only 10 may be considered a similar leap technically, and that would be mostly due to MinWin and UWP.
