[QUOTE=Joshii;51597059]I've had Windows 10 since before it was officially released last year and not once have I got popups telling me to update or Cortana intruding on what I'm doing, the only time I've been asked to update is when I turn off the computer for the night and I only use Cortana as a quick way to search for stuff on the computer. Anyway the game mode sounds neat but I wish they'd allow you to download Xbox games from the Xbox app instead of the windows store, I don't know if it's just me but seeing Xbox games on the windows store just seems out of place to me and I find the Xbox app to be a whole lot better[/QUOTE] If it makes you feel better, the Xbox One ALSO uses the Windows Store app (same logo and everything). So at least it's consistent. :v: They really don't hide that it's just a Windows 10 box.
[QUOTE=Killajax;51597663]Are they still trying to get people to "upgrade" from Windows 7?[/QUOTE] They have to, or it will become Windows XP all over again where people refuse to upgrade even after support has ended.
yeah no thank you, still using "oh so outdated and dusty and ewww old" 7 also, lol, lots of "its easy to disable! just stick a dildo in your asshole and move it a bit, that should do it" in this thread
[QUOTE=damnatus;51598011]also, lol, lots of "its easy to disable! just stick a dildo in your asshole and move it a bit, that should do it" in this thread[/QUOTE] Yeah, going to a settings menu and clicking "off" is totally "stick a dildo in your asshole".
[QUOTE=TestECull;51596600]If their work fixes the things I dont want I will change my mind. Otherwise...meh, no big loss, my games all work just fine on seven and nothing coming out interests me enough to worry about being forced onto ten.[/QUOTE] That might not hold true for a solid decade.

You would've had to go through an installation wizard and that's like ten times the amount of time and effort you'd have to put in compared to turning a setting off I mean I know you didn't buy a prebuilt or laptop because that would require you to either get up or browse a webpage and holy shit that's so much work [editline]a[/editline] I respect your decision to stay on Win7 but jfc it's not that hard dude it takes two fucking seconds to do. You're using a really shitty, fragile argument with a really shitty debate etiquette and expecting people to take you seriously, not gonna happen.
Sounds kinda like its just going to be a built in version of IObit gamebooster [t]http://images.downloadastro.com/gallery/game_booster/install-game-booster-11.png[/t]
[QUOTE=simkas;51597176]Sooo why don't you just turn all of that off? It's not exactly hard.[/QUOTE] forgot to mention its a school issued laptop, there's few settings i can change :\
[QUOTE=SpaceGhost;51595178]You can set a timer for when it reboots when updates are available, that's a complete non issue.[/QUOTE] not when you have irregular work and sleep schedule like me... i'm gonna see if i can get the vendor to swap out win10 for win7, maybe they will
[QUOTE=space1;51598986]not when you have irregular work and sleep schedule like me... i'm gonna see if i can get the vendor to swap out win10 for win7, maybe they will[/QUOTE] I mean that has to be a pretty specificly irregular schedule to be able to blame windows 10 I'm genuinely sure other people have had issues with W10, but I honestly haven't, and I've used an OEM on two different machines and it still works just fine. I've done a dirty upgrade, I've done a clean. it all works. It doesn't ruin your computer. It doesn't turn off or reboot without my instruction. I'm genuinely confused and confounded by the problems others are having

I've never had windows 10 force an update while I was using it, you can easily go and change all the privacy settings to your preferred setting, really I don't see much of a reason to staying behind besides being lazy.

[QUOTE=Levelog;51599052]My issues mostly have to do with stripped features that have been replaced with incomplete versions or features in the new settings menu.[/QUOTE] What are these out of curiousity? I mean I don't doubt there are, since its quite evident that some of the features are WIP switching over from the legacy UI.

It isn't a feature I use (or at least not anymore) so I never noticed.

My main gripe with Windows 10(on my laptop, haven't use desktop in years) is probably Cortana. It takes so fucking long for it to boot up just for me to search for something, because W10 wants to boot Cortana up first and I can't find a way to fucking disable it despite all I want is a simple search feature to look for something on my computer and not the god damn internet. Loading it up freezes the entire start menu so I have to wait a minute for it load so I can type a few letters. I have everything set to 'off' but it still fucking asks me to ask Cortana for something or forces it on me. No, Cortana, I don't want to ask you anything go the fuck away and give me back the simple start search. Also, the fucking live functions. No, Microsoft, I don't care if Donald Trump casted his vote just as I am working on a presentation during election day, piss off. Small shit but it still somehow manages to infuriate me. When I build a new desktop I'd only use W10 for gaming otherwise I'd move to something else. I really, [I]really[/I] prefer offline functionality.

I have an old laptop that has a bit of a delay when typing into the search (although nothing actually freezes), however on my desktop with an SSD, Cortana is one of the best features of 10, especially with the syncing between my phone. As for the "live functions", just turn them off? You can disable notifications in the settings app, or the action centre, or the news app settings, or even just uninstall the news app...

I don't even have any Cortana options. No online either. Just plain search. Technically Cortana is on, but its not doing anything. v:v:v [t]http://i.imgur.com/QtYRubK.png[/t]
[QUOTE=Demache;51599660]What are these out of curiousity?

It no longer exists.

There's tons of things you'd be required to do on any old OS, so I'm not sure how that's really a complaint either. How many of us are just good with any form of windows, as is, out of the box? I'm guessing not many.

[QUOTE=damnatus;51600358] When the same happens to 10 I'll think of switching, but currently people keep finding new "surprises" by microsoft[/QUOTE] For an operating system that sends new insider builds every few week for a release ever six months this isn't something groundbreaking. Expect changes with a changing operating system
[QUOTE=ShimTaco;51596974]while i prefer windows 10 over windows 8 by lightyears, fuck windows 10 On my laptop, every 10 minutes or so it brings up a large prompt saying there's an update available. No X button. only a "get started button." Now generally, it's universal that the ESC button means "no answer" right? Essentially "end the program, i do not want to answer" well windows has the audacity to say "hey he hit ESC, let's begin the update process!" I can't tell you how many embarrassing times have happened because i'm about to give a presentation and boom, it's time to update let's shut the whole fucking computer down without a notice at all more on topic, hopefully this wont be a gimmick/clunky as fuck like some of the other game related programs on windows[/QUOTE] Learn to windows, you are basically complaining about how your alarm clock makes an awefull noise every morning at the exact moment you have to wake up.
