Re: a looming disaster
I tried hiding the Windows 10 update. It was only effective temporarily. After a reboot, it had unhidden itself.
Windows 10 is still an ugly mess. Shrinking the Windows 8 start screen down to give "the start menu back" doesn't hide the fact that half the OS is in Metro land (with all it's shortcut unfriendly mouse/touch only elements) and half are still under the traditional Windows UI.
And that's before we even get to the bugs still hanging around since Win8. I've lost count of the number of times I see a Win 8/10 machine bogged down for no good reason that only a reboot clears.
And no one's mentioned how many times oem's have had to make updated drivers available in the last 6 years. I count 5. Win7, Win8, Win8.1, Win8.1 Update & now Win10. Add on 32 & 64 bit variants and it's little wonder so many machines have so many devices that don't work post "upgrade" to Win10. Or worse - crash with Blue Screens.
