For anyone wanting to upgrade to windows 10...
A question about Windows 10. An employee of Microsoft and a beta tester for Windows 10 told me that this edition is equivalent to XP. Just wondering if that is so. He went on also to state that Microsoft knew XP was the best platform that they had. Don't know if he was BS me or if it is true. Does anyone have any knowledge about this?
I wouldn't say Windows 10 is the equivalent to Windows XP probably more windows 7 with a few added features and new start menu. No metro menu like windows 8. (although metro is merged into the start menu in w10)
I have windows 10 pro installed on my main PC which was installed on launch date and now feels slow even with a SSD drive. Having been using Windows 7 for the past week I may revert back to w7 until w10 is past the teething stage.
If you are planning to upgrade to windows 10 don't forget to make a backup just in case you change your mind.
One nice thing about 10 is the have the roll back feature that you can use for the first 30 days.
I installed 10 and left it on long enough to play with a few things and make a system image, but then uninstalled it. While I like many of the features I found it rather "flat". Seems like it's lost some of the pizzazz that 7 had, and to be honest with an SSD I didn't really find it to be really any faster either. As some have said, I'm going to wait for the teething problems to go away and then I'll install it again.
