How bad is Windows 10 Really?
It's not. I have been using it since launch and I have installed every one of the updates within a week of it's release. Perhaps I've just been lucky, but I don't think so. I will tell you this, I am apparently much more open to change than the average person commenting on Windows 10 on the internet. I think that is the key. I'm a IT veteran for about 22 years now and I feel like the ability to accept change is underdeveloped in too many people.
I could not disagree with this more strongly and it always makes my eyes roll when someone says this.
It has got nothing to do with not liking change, when that change either makes sense or actually improve things. Crappy change is bad.
As an OS, yeah Win10 is okay, though the April update causes a black screen whenever my laptop's power saving turns the screen back on, needing a power cycle. Windows feature updates also kills dual booting with Linux as well. Anyway at some point I'm thinking of blowing Win10 away and going Linux only on that machine.
The UI of Win 10 though feels like a thousand little paper cuts compared to older versions of Windows, irritating.
