Windows 10

Postby Boycs » Fri Aug 14, 2015 12:03 pm

i just got it in a free upgrade - anyone else using it? What do they think?

Positives so far:
- It's quite slick, swish, looks good
- My games and software seem to run fine with it
- Some neat little features

Negatives
- Booting up takes slightly longer
- It fucked with my resolution which took about 30 mins to fix, but in the end I think it might have been the television my computer is plugged in to, rather than the computer itself.

Does it have the Microsoft Edge browser? Please tell me it's an improvement over IE?

We've had that problem at work with Windows 8.1. Many of our older (2-3 years old) Dell machines can't handle it. I'm sure Windows 10 will be much the same, though we aren't supposed to get the Windows 10 upgrade for at least another 10 months.

Huh. Sony says to its customers that use Sony products NOT TO upgrade to windows 10 till October ! It's got serious driver compatibility issues on hardware.
