    Just Curious ... Why is everyone excited about Windows 10 ??


    I laugh when I see people get excited over something they know absolutely nothing about. The innocence and ignorance is quite charming and child-like.


    Use Windows 10 for a few minutes and you find out you can't change the desktop icons font ... gone is the ability for me to use "chicago.ttf" like I have for the past 17 years on a plethora of other OSs.


    What if I don't want to look like a psychopath talking to myself ?? Can I uninstall Cortana ?? No I can NOT. It just sits there on my hard drive taking up valuable space.


    What if I don't want all of those phone apps littering my OS and "Start Menu" ?? Can I go to 'programs and features' , click the "Add/Remove Features" tab, and uninstall all of that trash ?? NO ... it's gone !! We can't remove ANYTHING from the OS.


    I'd really like to strip this OS down to its bare bones so it doesn't use 1.2GB of RAM and 10GB of HDD space before I install any of my apps.


    I get the flat boring GUI ... makes it easier to display on a mobile device ... but that sets you back how many years and how many man-hours trying to get Windows 2000 to look 3D ?? if I wanted my desktop computer to look and act like my phone then ... well ... I'd use my phone.


    Windows 10 is just as much of a disaster as win8 except maybe it runs a bit faster. As for the security risk ... I've lived by this motto ever since I pirated software in the old NT4 days ... if it's coded by humans then it can be hacked by humans .... there is always a way in .... nothing is 100% secure. It doesn't matter what OS you use but, it DOES matter what you do with it and where on the internet you go.


    I have Windows 10 on one machine just to see what kind of disaster M$ is trying to pass off as an operating system. So far it's another mistake, but since they have total control (**cough-apple-cough**), six months from now maybe they'll change that.

    So what is your point of even being a member of this windows 10 forum? Maybe it's time find a OS forum you like.

    yes sn00ker ... I'm saying Windows 10 is NOT being used on a daily basis ... yet.

    Windows 8 is not allowed on any of my family or customers machines (unless they throw a temper tantrum).

    I still use XP and Win7 daily and it's going to stay that way until one of 2 things happen...
    a) hardware driver support dries up
    b) Windows 10 becomes an actual 'desktop' OS

    Which of the 2 will happen first ??

    As for your question digitalcurisity ... I am here for the information this web site provides on the OSs progress and problems. Every site has intelligent people that can be very helpful and, somewhere down the line, maybe someone here will provide me with a tidbit of information that will make me understand why win10 exists.

    It's a new version of Windows and IMO it's an improvement over WIn8.1. Honestly, I have no idea how to make you understand why Win10 exists. From your OP I think you made up your mind that you don't like it.

    Just seems to me you are not really being helpful to the Windows10 forum members. all i got from your first posting is you feel you know everything already in regards to Win10,and you have found many things you dislike. So why keep dragging us through the Win10 hate postings?

    Each of us are learning about new and better things of a daily basis. I believe it is better and will be even better as time passes. I have lots to be thankful . . . . and all the upgrades and new purchases throughout the years of Microsoft.

    All be safe.. Cliff M.

    LOL BunnyJ ... reverting back to Win7 would be an 'upgrade' to win8 ... so thats not saying much in win10's defence ... and yes, I have made up my mind on win10 .... if it doesn't change then it will NOT be my choice of OSs for desktop computers. Laptops with touchscreens my be a different animal.

    As for the lack of ability to uninstall any OS component or 'App' ... I'm just not comfortable with that. I don't like being told what does or doesn't belong installed on my computer. It shows a lack of trust on M$s part, and, in return, I will not trust them.

    M$ needs to understand not all users are total idiots ... some of us actually know how to use an OS properly. Taking away control of its looks and features and update choice removes the "personal" from Personal Computer.
