    No way of knowing what % of PC users don't create original backup when they first get their device but I bet it's huge. Moving forward I would imagine most of those same users don't have much of a backup in place if any at all much less maintaining their equipment. I am afraid many of these users are in for a rude awakening if they proceed with this in-place upgrade without any preparation unless the download and process gets more refined as time goes by.
    I'm afraid that in much of the every day real world people simply buy new and expect it to work right out of the box! They go about plugging in their cameras and smart phones or whatever else and upload their photos and files, etc. from school or work even and give one iota to how to get things to work right if a problem comes up. With your average larger then not company with a multitude of office workers who fixes things? The IT Dept. or whoever the company calls in to maintain things not the office worker who sits in front of a machine for 8hrs. on average.

    Now as far as 10 seeing "Bloatware" the old OEM accusation dept. there no less I simply disable and tweaks things to how they suit me the best regardless of the version if I plan to keep running with it that is. So far I've only been running into a few bumps on the road compared to a rather large dislike for 8 after 7 had been a very much needed success story in contrast.

    Windows 10's performance so far has been what I would have expected being a slightly larger version from 7 due to the new features like Virtual Desktop people may not be aware is even present! That can save time rather then setting up a VM in order to run one thing while doing another simply because you can have several desktops to work with at the same time!

    Once you start getting familiar with things other then the upfront desktop trimmings each new version comes with and looking at the what else you will find that 10 has brought in some other rather interesting developments with it. I don't see 10 tanking only a rough start off with the hecktics of the upgrade process typically not seeing things go on fully as well as carrying over any goobers not noticed with the previous version. Even a clean install of 7 right before the upgrade could end up buggy! But other then that the thing most won''t realize is that the need for a clean install to follow that up will work things out in a hurry!

    I'm sure you will be able to disable features you don't want when Windows 10 matured at a little later. I'd choose want I like to stay with me at the time.
    Oh I have already gotten rid of what I don't want thank you also I have fixed a typo in my post .

    Maybe benchmark results on windows 10 is around same as 7 or 8.1 but UI feels slower than 8.1.
    Installed on my windows 8.1 tablet.. had to roll back it feels way to slow clicking on start button doesn't respond sometimes.
    search button is even worse tapping on it like 3-4 times finely makes search show up. task bar, notification area, start menu, search etc just feels very sluggish. boot/shutdown/restart times are noticeably longer too.

    You can alter the speed by right clicking the start menu then run and type in regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop and change the MenuShowDelay double click and change to 100.

    I have not tried Win 8.x but I can say that I find Win 10 much better than Win 7, although the post says that it is slower than Win 8.x and in a lot of scenarios slower than Win 7. I found Win 7 to be decent, but I found Win 10 better. It is leaner and meaner. And it does the job. For me, it boots quickly and runs snappier than 7. I read on the internet that MS has changed the underlying code so that it is now "closer" to the processor and hence executes faster. 7 was simply a stable OS and 10 is relatively new with a bunch of problems.

    Also, I liked the various comments posted on the article. One person said that the test should be purely about the OS and not about gaming, etc. Yet another person said that not everyone has high end computers and so the tests should be performed on hardware that is similar to what most people have around the world. I agree!

    That comes as no surprise actually! I knew from going up the latter through the years from dos/3.1 through 9x, XP, VIsta, and then a big surprise with 7! that as long as MS could progress from where 7 started they would do well! 8 was a fright and I knew right off it would take a few more versions in order for them to work out the multiplatform stuff and finally we arrive at 10!

    I really wish i could do that , i have been trying to download a Win 10 ISO for at least a week but when i reach about halfway it shuts down and i get the ISO is corrupted message.

    The computer never turns off or shut down so i don't know what it is , i would probably have a very different take on Win 10 after a clean install.

    I don't in essence I don't dislike it however for none savy pc users that just use windows 7 to do what they do there are no benefits to this upgrade. I'm gonna keep it just because I like to be current and it does what I need it to do. I also agree that it was bothersome to get rid of the chit and make it more private, it's new and it's also not just made for desktops like I run, I'm not interested in twitter or facebook or xbox or all that tiles thing, to go along with that cortana taking up 20% or whatever it was of my CPU on start up. Maybe MS should bring out a desktop version it would only be a 1gb file and leave the tablet chit out./QUOTE]
    That would be outstanding if they did that , i would love to see a stripped down version but i bet a huge amount of people would dump what they have now and go for the stripped down version as well lol.

    I think the majority of users do not care for all this new stuff .
