    Ok, i concede- you got me there. I couldn't program my way out of a paper bag. I can see the potential of OS. I guess i am so disappointed in Windows [i have been there every step of the way since 98] i feel progress is going backwards. I feel they started 10 steps back with win 10 and now they want us to wait while they catch up where they should have begun. I guess i'm more dissapointed with the brains our colleges are turning out. It's like our youth has not progressed in the last ten years. Is mediocrity the now accepted norm?
    Sometimes, you have to start over. And it takes some time. Windows had reached the point where it needed to be rewritten, but rather than do this all at once, it's happening in much smaller steps.

    Sometimes, when they introduce a new feature in the "new" part of the OS, they have to remove it from the "old" part of the OS, even though the new feature may not be as mature as the old one was. New versions of Windows will come much more frequently though, every 3 or 4 months, so you don't have to wait 2 years for the next OS.

    As someone who has used computers since before *windows* was invented, I find threads like this amusing.

    You kids won't remember the stink when they went from XP to Vista/Win7. Now I read Win7 is the best thing sinvce the electron was invented.

    I remember when Win98 was the neatest thing since sliced bread and that new XP junk was the death of computing.

    I remember when Win3 was the greatest thing since salted potato chips and that unwieldy resource hog, Win 98 was going to drive us to Communism.

    I remember when MS-DOS ruled the world and that newfangled Windows thing was just so idjits too stupid to understand Computers could figure out how to do more than turn a computer on.

    Yep. Been there, done that. SEVERAL TIMES.

    Bottom line? It's just an operating system. No better or no worse than any other .
    Well, this kid remembers it all, DeathStalker! How far back can I go with DOS? And before that was a Xerox dedicated word processor with a mouse built into the keyboard!

    You're right; it's just the Operating System. So far I can run any program I want to on Windows 10. Most of my programs run just as fast as ever, and maybe even faster.

    When I was a kid, I had to type my programs into the computer from a magazine, each time I wanted to use them because I had no storage device. Uphill. Both ways.

    So are we going to have this same debacle 3 or 4 times a year now?

    The app doesn't show up when you right click the speaker icon and go to Volume Mixer?
    No. That's what I showed in that previous post.

    "Well, it only lasted 1 hour in my laptop"
    With all due respect, you are either a genius that ought to write own OS or all of that "experience" is picked up from other people's opinions.

    Well boot time for me in win10 is a little under 6 seconds, windows 8 - 8.1 managed that in just over 15 and windows 7's best effort was 43 seconds.

    Took a whopping 15 min to install the OS as well.

    Did you upgrade or did you do a fresh install?
