Windows 10 Impressions

26 posts in this topic

So, Windows 10 just launched and I Was curious about everyone's impressions thus far.

 

Personally, coming from 8.1, my pc seems to be running a LOT faster. 

The new task bar looks nice and sleek while also being highly customizable.

And Games run better. (For the most part. Runescape doesn't run worth a flying F***) Skyrim on Very High when originally I could only run it on Medium and even then it didn't run optimally. 

Newer games like Heroes of The Storm also run much, much better than they did before. With higher graphics!

 

____________________________________

Now onto negative things

 

I still can't easily change what fonts my PC shows, same as windows 8 and maybe 7(dunno never messed with it on win7)

Xbox tab seems to be a waste of hard-drive space. I was hoping that I could play my arcade games. (The fact that the console version of minecraft doesn't work for the 'free' Windows 10 edition of Minecraft pisses me off too, but that's not on Microsoft.)

I can't stand being told 'HI' by my laptop and every other App that has me log into something. (Minor peeve.)

 

RESOLVED* Now for the problem that Lights me up the most. My Wacom Bamboo Tablet and Gimp doesn't recognize that the other exists. Maybe there's something to be done about this, but It is a BIG problem. A solution would likely be to update the driver for my tablet but It's a decently old model and I don't know if they WILL update it. I may just have to buy a new one...

*Just run in compatibility mode for Windows 7 and it'll work.

 

Anywho, What are your first impressions of it?

 

Edit: 

 

From the records I saw, apparently Windows 10 is said to have a "Cortana" system, in which I start to slightly worry about.

 

I asked her the weather tomorrow and it was pretty straight forward. I don't know, I'll have to mess around with it and see how complicated I can make the questions. Doesn't seem like the end of the world, anyhow.

 


how is master chief, "she" replied with He just lost someone...very close to him. I think we should give him some space.

I can confirm this still happens. Fun!

 

P.S: apparently DS4 doesn't work with Win10's current build. Fantastic, that. I totally wasn't replaying through dks1 at the moment. FUCK!

After spending all night trying to find solutions for dual-shock 4 and games that only use Xinput(Dark Souls 1, games with a few years on them) I cannot find a good, permanent solution. So if you primarily use a DS4 for your PC gaming, I would recommend you NOT upgrade to Windows 10.

ALSO, you can disable the keylogger by doing this.  (Found by Elioden Ward)

I did it just now as a quick test and It does work. You MUST run Command Prompt as Administrator. Otherwise access will be denied.

 
I would recommend everyone do this since it can affect your Internet connection since you're constantly sending data to Microsoft.

 

1.Install Windows 10 

 

 
2.Press Shift + F10 on the loginscreen to open commandprompt
 
 
 
3.Input the following commands:
 
 
 
sc delete DiagTrack
 
sc delete dmwappushservice
 
echo "" > C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl

Im currently waiting to download, Although, I can say one thing. From the records I saw, apparently Windows 10 is said to have a "Cortana" system, in which I start to slightly worry about. I can happily say that from what you have said here, I look forward to downloading it and will probably post again with my opinions.

Cool, i currently waiting for mine to download so i can install it (had it reserved a couple of months back) hopefully from what you have said it looks like a massive improvement from windows 8.

As someone who has a nokia lumia with cortana, it's hard to say what windows 10's PC version will be like but if it is anything like the phone version then it might be good since you can do things like make notes, check weather,etc. I messed around and said things like what is the meaning of life, "she" replied with 42, or how is master chief, "she" replied with He just lost someone...very close to him. I think we should give him some space.

It's pretty funny what things you can say and what replies you get, i'm hoping that cortana will be like that on PC.

I reserved it some time ago but on my laptop witch I sold after I built my new PC so I don't know how that's going to work.

 

From the reviews I've seen so far things look very positive, definitely a huge improvement over windows 8.

 

Here's one:

 

 

Here is a longer more in depth analysis.  (I recommend watching all of this one)

This. I've heard PC games are fine, but what I'm worried about is emulators.

Well, good thing I only reserved and didn't download Windows 10 then. Gonna wait until they have a version of DS4Windows that works perfectly with it, along with other drivers I need for this laptop. Until then, I'll be sticking with Windows 7.

I've been using it for only about 30 min, but I like it so far, except for the wifi sharing thing, the ads and how cortana needs so much information just to search.  I did see the xbox thing, I never had an xbox but this app looks interesting.

Looks like I know someone who has a Windows 10 upgrade horror story. My brother says that when he was upgrading his laptop from Windows 8 to 10, the screen just went black and crashed. Now he has to reformat his computer.

Wow, that's a total bummer. But I expected it to go horribly wrong for some. Tbh I'm surprised my upgrade when off without a hitch.

 

Only negative things that piss me off is the fact that I can't use my DS4 or my tablet.

Another thing I have to find out is compatibility with a bunch of Japanese games that I have. Also hope that since I have Windows 7 Ultimate and have all the language packs, I'll be getting the higher version of Windows 10 that I'd still have all those language packs. I need that Japanese one.

 

Also, WHY ARE THERE ADS IN SOLITAIRE IN THE FIRST PLACE?!?!?!?!?! Microsoft wants $1.49 a month to remove the ads it shows inside Solitaire on Windows 10

1. "Your browse, and bing search history"

2. "Additionally, your typed and handwritten words are collected to provide you a personalized user dictionary, help you type and write on your device with better character recognition, and provide you with text suggestions as you type or write."

I, for one welcome our new Microsoft overlords.

Anyhow.... 1.  My browse history, huh? Whoever's job it is to check these things will get one hell of a surprise.

 

2. I don't care that they collect this data, I just focus on the fact that they log people's bad grammar in order to personalize it. When it comes to this, fuck it, don't personalize it. CORRECT IT. Sosay U ned too go bak 2 skools.

​However, I personally think auto-correct systems need more work before they are permanently implemented on systems. Because as they stand right now they're just an annoyance. 

 

EDIT:

Also, I'm going to add that picture to the original post, as it's helpful to people knowing rather or not they want to upgrade.

What you gonna do about it? Switch to Linux (Steam OS)? I mean it is slowly getting more games on steam because valve is pushing it (I wonder why).

Linux is actually a really good, Stable OS. In the future I imagine people will start upgrading to Linux, I mean remember the Epic Rap battle Video with Bill Gates vs. Steve Jobs? Who came in and schooled both of them?

Most people don't see the value in data, only in USD. Ofc Microsoft knows that the average joe knows nothing of this. Americans don't even remember who Snowden was or what he did anymore. Privacy is really at the bottom of their list. I wish that people would realize that in this day and age giving away data is like giving away money.

Update on my Brother's situation: He had to reformat twice since his laptop kept crashing after two minutes. He looked up some forums and found that his laptop wasn't compatible with Windows 10 yet. Don't know if it's for all Lenovo laptops, but that's what he found out.

 

Also just found out that he didn't back-up his stuff before attempting the upgrade. Good thing he didn't lose anything impornant according to him though.
