    Build 10049 -- Really fast and snappy --well done Ms


    Hi there

    My experience with build 10049 so far has been quite good -- easily the FASTEST windows OS I've ever used - possible exception was Windows 2003 server - but that was ages ago on long defunct hardware and I modified it a lot - whereas I'm using build 10049 straight Out of the box.

    Not perfect yet but run this on an SSD and you will probably be amazed. Try W7 (also an excellent OS) on the SAME SSD note - not on a dual boot system use the same SSD with backup / restore images and although reasonable W7 seems really sluggish compared with the latest 10049 W10 build.

    Still some minor annoyances -- like I hope we can select what updates to install - to avoid the Audio drivers fiasco with build 10041 and also the start menu still needs some sort of better user customisation possibilities.

    However with this build I think Ms can consider this is a job well done. I'm getting much more confident that W10 final will be a really good OS.

    BTW you get ONE DAYS extension with this build -- now expires on OCT 2 23.59 rather than OCT 1. !!!!

    Cheers

    I don't know whether Win 10 is really that fast. I have W8.1 and W10 both running in VMware Player from the same disk, on the same machine and the W10 boot time is more than twice the W8.1 boot time.

    The first picture is W8.1 and the second is W10 - both Event 100 of the Event Viewer.

    I like 10049 with the exception of not having my VMWare Workstation. I like playing around with VM's. So fix Microsoft. . .

    My clean install into a VM was good, a very quick process. Tonight I tried to preset my mapped network drives, took a drive image and decided to upgrade 10041. So far it's been going on over an hour and is still at 0% of Applying PC Settings. No idea what changed form my last upgrade.

    Me too Hell, I don't think it showed up much more than 20 years ago.

    Still on 40% Applying PC Settings. This is the most excruciatingly slow upgrade I've ever known, I get the feeling something's not right here.

    Several people have reported an extremely slow upgrade process. Maybe that is normal.
