    W10 Pro x64/W7 Ultimate x64 dual boot main - W10 Pro Insider Preview/W7 Pro x64 - remote pc

    The ultimate question is: "Should I or Shouldn't I upgrade the... not the main build here but the second W7 Pro mini tower accessed remotely as well as can view what is going on the main build but not have the same control upgrade it to 10???

    Should I or Shouldn't I? is the big question since I already have the dual of 7 going with 10 in working fashion but have yet to see any grand improvements performance wise as well as it not taking anywhere near the time to put a clean install of 7 as it is for Vista, 8 having tried out the CP, skipped over 8.1, and now 10 not actually finishing loading things up when arriving at the desktop any faster then 7! So much for faster boot times.

    Yet the overall familiarity of things despite a good deal of the "new looks" including "pop out from the right" type notifications no longer seeing the typical balloon type coming from the task bar or system tray area simplies navigating in 10 much easier then seen in the two previous versions(8, 8.1).

    As for still seeing tiles on the Start menu those can be shrunk with a fast right click in order to select small, medium, wide, or large for many while some will only see small or medium as the two choices with the right click on resize option. If you don't like tiles those can easily be unpinned like several have been in favor of pinning things you do want to see!

    From a personal viewpoint 10 still is far more eye appealing despite the latest eye candy to come along since 7 was a huge success! As for multiple platforms I knew it would take a few versions more with one look at 8 for MS to finally come out with something that would actually work. It looks like 10 is making headway.

    Windows 7 , 8.1 and Mint

    May be it's just me but i failed to see any significant performance improvement in my tests. Startup, reboot and shutdown times are more or less equal to 8.1. Yes, there are welcome changes like the removal of charms bar, easy access to shutdown button etc but honestly i don't like the new start menu - i like both Windows 7 start menu and 8.1 modern interface but not this hybrid menu much.

    Oh, and that awful icons ......... First they destroyed Windows logo and now the default icons too.

    To me, 10 doesn't looks prettier than either 7 or 8.1 ( strictly personal opinion ).

    At first I was a bit frowned on the new tiles off to the right side until seeing how things work! You can easily cut the number of those right down to almost none as well as resize the total amount of desktop space it uses up as well as resize the tiles themselves that you pin there! Small. medium, wide, and large for many while some may only see the options for small and medium. When you right click on the tile itself you will then notice the resize item in the right click menu for that.

    As for installation 7 is the champ! 20minutes tops for a full clean install from either flash drive or dvd! 8 took longer then Vista! Vista was about 40minutes give or take a few while 8 took a full hour when trying out the Customer Preview for that. 10's TP went on just a little faster and the latest clean install of the RTM we all have now was under an hour at about 53 minutes! Less Metrolizations and less time with Getting things ready while you still wait a bit.

    Yup, same here, it boots up, shuts down and plays all my games and allows all my work programs to function without problems. In fact oddly enough it even allows my computer to properly sleep now where as in Win 7 it would go to sleep and immediately wake back up, so I guess that's a bit of a bonus.

    Although I can't honestly say that any of my games actually perform any better. They all seem to be roughly the same FPS they were when running under W7. But at least they don't perform any worse, so that's another bonus.

    Well here's another interesting tid bit besides seeing the Steam and other games run about the same as always. The Home edition doesn't want to be cooperative when it comes to VM Player and perhaps any VMs as somewhat to be expected since most would expect to the Pro or Enterprise offer Virtualization support more so then the Home edition. The same applied to the previous versions as well as with 7. The Pro is going right onto the new VM while the Home simply hangs right after the first restart and sits there like a block of ice doing nothing. As far as Virtualization that's the one downside seen so far.

    Without philosophizing...

    Windows 10 = freezing / useless
    Windows 8/8.1 = full of bugs
    Windows 7 = stable

    i see no difference from 7 to 10 just looks a bit different but performance and getting to navigate it seems the same,8 was just a disaster.

    So far for me (fingers crossed, knock on wood) W10 has been just as stable as 7 was for me. 7 never BSOD on me (until the new RAM that I got turned out to be bad) and all the programs that I ran on it were rock stable, and so far they're all doing exactly the same on 10 and I've not had any freezes or crashes thus far. So far for me after an initial hiccup with permissions, I'd have to say that if I didn't know better somebody could tell me that this is Windows 7 with a Stardock Windowblinds theme applied to it and I'd tend to believe them without looking further into it.

    Max out your RAM, use all by some application, and see will it freeze.
    That's whats happening to me.

    You have topic in general about my problem under windows errors title.

    For me also works fine, untill I max out the RAM, freezes keyboard and mouse but sound works.

    It's near impossible for me to max out 16GB of RAM. I have one game that will use about 8 to 12 GB of RAM but even with the OS using something like 2 more and a slew of chrome windows open I can't max out 16GB but I'm going to try as best as I can tonight and just open everything I possibly can to see what the limits really are even if that type of environment use of the O.S., isn't the way that I'd normally use it.
