    Doing a search for "Windows 7 review" gets lots of results of Windows 7 reviews. Doing a search for "Windows 7 review bugs" changes the search results from being for Windows 7 to being for Windows 10.
    Obviously, since windows 7 is 3 years old, and search returns will rank those much lower..
    anyways, considering there are over 70 million folks who upgraded to win 10 so far, if 1% of folks had issues, that would be 700,000 people, which sounds like a lot, but in the grand scheme of things, 1% of people having problems with ANYTHING would be considered a smashing success.
    As has been said thousands of times over and over, only the complainers, and people with problems post on the internet. The rest of us just enjoy our new OS, and dont feel the need to gloat about how well it is working..

    I must admit that I'm following this thread (and a few similar in this forum) with some amusement. I didn't suspect that a few gigabytes of code and data could raise such amount of emotions.

    I can see three flavours of posters here - declared critics, voice of reason (with criticism or praise) and strict Windows Defenders. And I think that the level of emotion might have been caused directly by Microsoft and their campaign around launching Windows 10.

    Look, there's never been so much effort in MS to raise apetites, create demand and put pressure on people to upgrade as fast as possible and as many PC-s as possible to a new OS. Windows 10 has the widest beta testing programme ever. It is marketed as "Best Windows Ever". The GWX is the broadest possible teasing campaign and the biggest publicly visible giveup on direct revenue just to give folks incentives to upgrade ASAP.

    Obviously, it must have had risen big hopes and expectations, which were suddenly confronted with the reality that is not so bright after all. No wonder it has made many users disappointed. However, considering the scale of the campaign, there are just as many users for whom the 'wow effect' will make up for some quirks and hiccups they encounter, as well as the ones that fell in love with W10. And I believe it is the last two groups that prevail and bring value to MS.

    I only keep wondering where the catch is. What is Microsoft's hidden strategy to raise money with Windows 10? Where is the revenue hidden? How much are we tricked by MS? We'll see.

    The thing is with looking at forum results is you only see the bad things, there are many many users very happy with the upgrade, unfortunately the without making sure you can get back to where you were before the upgrade is most users real problem, there are risks with every install.

    For many WIn10 is both solid and stable.. And there will always be Windows/MS haters.

    -Dell Optiplex 790 desktop (Intel i5 2400, 12gb ram, 3TB hard disk) from Windows 7 x64 Professional
    -Dell Inspiron i3847 small desktop (Intel i5 4460, 8gb ram, 1TB hard disk) from Windows 8.1 core x64
    -Home built; Asus motherboard, (Intel i5 3570k, 16gb ram, 1TB hard disk) from Windows 7 Home Premium x64

    I'm happy to take a dump on Microshaft as much as the next hater.

    But, I must have built well over 100 systems for myself and others and installed every flavour of Windows since 3.0 except Vista.

    Never had instability, blue screens, crashes, freezes, etc. with any of them! Must have just got lucky with my hardware choices I suppose...

    I have seen these problems in other, nastily put together, systems though; SiS chipsets anyone? Lol...

    I've upgraded and clean installed a number of Win 7 and Win 8 systems to Win 10 now. Still waiting for an instability issue to occur.

    Snap I think the user has some responsibility that the machine can indeed run windows 10 mainly laptops, I don't see many probs from Desktop PC's

    Thread Starter

    Turned on my windows 10 this morning and it literally crashed before I did anything.

    Haven't had this much fun since I tried using Vista or Linux in a productive fashion.

    I really don't give a hoot what anyone else says, my experience is my experience - and I for one get no pleasure tinkering under the hood of my computer just to MAYBE get things working that were ROCK SOLID in Windows 7

    And why the **** does the windows app store tell me Skype is already installed and refuses to let me install the app version, when I uninstalled the desktop version and cleaned the registry.
    I can't beleive how crap and full of errors this is.

    I was thinking MAYBE if I uninstall the desktop Skype and install the app version, it will stop some of the crashing.
    But I can't even troubleshoot becasue it simply refuses to download. Literally one problem after another.

    App store wont work properly- tells me I already have app installed when I DONT. I plug in my phone and computer crashes, I do business on skype and it crashes MANY times, desktop windows wont display clearly at 125% magnification.

    I can't tell you how abysmal this OS is.
    It's like I've gone back in time 20 years.

    This crap don't work, and I'm out of here.

    Cheers
