    Win 10 Preview

    Yes; if you have Win 7 that was installed from the dealer, yes it's bad and slow, due to advertising crap that was installed along side software needed to run OPS, but try to do a clean install of win 7 from an ISO or get retail Win7 OPS, if you have a legal activation key, you will see what i'm talking about,I've done that, i even bought an extra HDD just to try it,so i would not erase my original install. and i couldn't believe how fast Win 7 turned out to be compared to the dealer factory install.

    Windows 10 X64

    hi guys,

    not only boot times are practically the same on Windows 8,1 and Windows 10, but if you open start (which i cannot anymore, being on Build 10061) and go for the full screen, they almost are the same also.

    You get on the left options including the apps menu, and on the right the tiles from Wndows 8,1.

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1607 (14393.222)

    I use Windows 7 Ultimate as my main OS on my newest machine and I find it good enough, even though it is only a dual core CPU.
    The machine I have Windows 10 (10074 Build) on is a Quad core AMD, I would need to have equivalent machines to make that
    comparison but, I will be doing so soon. The Win 10 machine does seem to be a little quicker but, I still need to look into it more.
