That Windows 10 Upgrade

Hello reader,

Around 4:30 am I saw it sitting in the corner of my Windows 7 desktop. That Windows 10 Upgrade Button… I’ve had a love hate relationship with the Windows 10 Preview builds and of course was furious when driver issues kept me from fully enjoying the experience of Windows 10 with things like sound or graphics capable of playing video games.

“It is by far the best Windows system to date” ~ I said that in my first mention of the preview build because it was true.

Then of course the nightmare, I was early to the insider program. I had become so eager after the release of the rtm to test the new Windows, which I had spent so much time toying with. I reinstalled and suddenly was faced with no way to activate the newest version I had just installed.

Notice I said love hate relationship?

To be fair I do this stuff all the time, new operating system installations are just part of my morning routine some weeks. I know all the tricks to doing it right and just wasn’t having much luck with this OS overall.

4:30 am and I click the button. I read the faq and see a mention of more tech savvy users can do it now by using the media creation tool… My curiosity piqued just enough to end up on the download page for what I assumed would be an ISO to USB writer but it was just an executable.

2 hours later I hesitantly opened a fully working fully activated Windows 10. And the drivers work fine… “Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” And now for me I can end one part of this relationship with Windows 10 and go back to just loving it.

I still prefer Linux Mint 17.2 for most things. I will however concede that this is in fact “The best Windows Operating System To Date.”

Yes you will have some privacy concerns, yes you should want to look into every detail of what you are sharing and how you are sharing it. That said if you have multiple computers and you would like a thoroughly enjoyable Windows experience on one of them, this Windows is almost 65% faster on this machine than Windows 7 was. It is almost as quick as Linux, but let’s not ask for everything in one package.

This improvement in speed is just one of countless upgrades in performance, which on a single core Acer with a meager 3Gb Ram is actually a massive leap in the right direction.

The journey to here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Spread the love
