Is anyone using Windows 10? Is anyone concerned about the privacy concerns? I heard some torrent sites are banning Windows 10 and that Microsoft will disable “unauthorized” programs. That kinda concerns me.

I’m sticking with Windows 7 on all my computers for the time being. You know the ol’ saying … if it ain’t broke …

I switched to windows 10 when it was released and haven’t had problems with it. My pc was only 1 year old at the time and the upgrade was pretty seamless. I use utorrent for torrents and haven’t had issues with any site that I use, TD, DD, JTT etc.

I’m a Mac guy, but my buddy in IT described windows 10 as a really dailed in version of windows 8…


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.

I’d agree with that. I went from 8.1 to 10 and 10 runs far better than 8.1.

If you’re at 8.x, then 10 is probably the way to go. However, I’m still at 7, and think I’ll be waiting out the rest of the year before I give upgrading any serious thought.

Exactly… never had any problems with Windows 7, and it does everything I need it to do.

Today is the day the free upgrade supposedly ends.

I dropped a couple new drives into my box yesterday, and am now dual-booting between Win7 and Win10. I wanted a clean install of Win10, instead of dragging all the crap of 4 years under Win7 along. It’ll take a bunch of time to get stuff transferred and re-installed, but so far, so good.

I dual booted on a couple of computers and I had trouble when I booted from 10 back to 7. My usb mouse and keyboard would not work. I had to reset the computers everytime. I’ve gone back to Windows 7.

Everything works just fine for me, so I’m sticking with 7. Maybe I’m missing out on some really great stuff by not changing … hard to say. I’ll stick with 7 until such time that I HAVE to change though.
