    What if I told you that you don't have the set up correct or you have problems with your hardware. IE11 does not freeze or crash on all my W10 or W7 machines and it is not intended to. ?
    Don't waste your time.
    What you just said had been mentioned numerous times.
    You might as well be talking to a wall.

    I us IE11 and have had little to no trouble. Some web sites can cause issues for IE11. Some web scripts are sometimes the cause.

    XP, W8.1 & W10 up, W7 down


    I was expecting W10 to overtake W8.1 early this year.

    W7 lost market share.
    XP W8.1, W10, OS X 10.11 & Other increased their market shares.

    I uninstalled IE11 and am back to IE9. IE11 made a mess of my desktop gadgets.

    Millions of people complained about Vista as well and yet when you run it on a decent computer there was nothing wrong with it, they also complained about how slow it was, if you run it on a Core i7 with 16GB ram and an SSD let's see how slow it runs.

    I never had one ounce of trouble with Vista and yet it was the most hated OS on the planet. I'm willing to bet that most of the people having problems with Windows 10 are running the Insiders programme, well duhh.
    So instead of complaining they should have waited for the Core i7 to be released?

    Maybe not necessarily an i7, but a PC that was decently equipped. Remember the Vista customers came from XP where 512MB of RAM was a BIG system. But that just did not cut it in Vista land. My first Vista laptop had 1GB and that was sold as ample. But I quickly upgraded it to 2GB which was fine.

    I was just going by what BillyBob posted. I personally didn't have any problems with Vista. I just didn't like it. I actually switched over to Linux Mandrake as my main OS until I started testing Win 7. I've stayed with MS ever since.

    It is difficult to argue likes or dislikes. Either you do or you don't like an OS.

    Yes and no. I remember working at Microsoft when we released MS DOS 5.0 and Win 3.1. Back then the 800lb gorilla was IBM, and we were fighting against OS/2. Windows 3.1, while way ahead of the command prompt, was behind OS/2. The Mac OS a niche, much like today. What put Microsoft in front? Simply put, the setup process. OS/2 and OS/2 Warp had the absolute worst install programs. Even for computer engineers like me, it was a several day process to get the environment working. Once it was setup the baby was rock solid and easy to use. Unfortunately, Joe six pack could not run that setup for anything. That pretty much helped Microsoft become the PC software leader, and eventually get IBM out of the PC business after several years.

    Moral of that story. OS death is based usability, which is more than subjective. Vista died not because it was hated, but because it was buggy out the gate and WAY too bloated for the hardware of the day. Windows 8 was plain not usable. Windows 8.1 still manages to hand around and is still being sold out of legacy inventory, but the metro apps suck beans. Unless you have a Surface x machine, or some other 2n1 there isn't a lot of reason to run it over Windows 7. Windows 10 though is a leap in the right direction with better security, down to the chip level, very good stability, a small footprint, and a move towards intelligent platform decision making. (Desktop vs. touch UI depending on hardware.)

    It still fails miserably with universal apps, but fortunately does a terrific job of supporting desktop apps. While developers aren't flocking to universal apps, they are programming better desktop apps that can run on an atom built 2n1 machine.

    So Windows 10 will succeed. As for disliking its UI, that's why third parties exists. They've been around since MSDOS. Not everyone can be made happy with a black Model T.
