A couple weeks ago I took the plunge and upgraded to Windows 10 against the advice of others that had upgraded. Like I said in my previous post on Windows 10 I figured I might as well get used to it now because all confusers from here on out will run that system.
Well, Windows 10 had too many glitches. I had hoped it would help run streaming better when I'm watching TV shows either videos or on occasion something live like football or NASCAR. It didn't, now I'm thinking the problem may be with my internet service. But the worse problems were things like Opera browser would crash a lot. Firefox would have a problem with "script running" and would have to click on the pop-up to kill it. In Windows 7 we had eliminated that!!
Also they had changed the solitaire games, nothing big, just different. Could have lived with that if the fucking games had worked right. Do you know how fucking frustrating it is when the game freezes (for what at times seemed like a minute or two) and you have to wait for it to start again and hope you catch it in time to make the move you have figured out. Or it would start up again for a couple seconds and freeze again before you could make a move!!
Turns out because I had upgraded less than 30 days ago it was easy to go back to Windows 7. All the stuff was still there under the Windows 10 upgrade. Even my score on one of the solitaire games!! In the process of going back it asked why. There were several options to click on and a blank to leave a comment. I clicked on "Windows 7 is more reliable" and left a comment, "When Windows 10 can't even run solitaire games right (freeze), Windows 10 isn't ready for prime time"!!!!!!!
I will keep Windows 7 on this confuser until I need to replace it. Then when I get a new confuser I will have no choice, but may be it will work better when it is the only operating system installed on the confuser. While researching shit about Windows 10 I saw several sites that said the best way to upgrade was to do a "clean install", which means you erase the version you have and then install Windows 10. But if I had done that even if I could have figured out how to do it, I wouldn't have been able to go back to Windows 7 with just a few clicks like I did. It would have meant erasing Windows 10 and then installing Windows 7 from a DVD or something like a flash drive. I did make a recovery disc when I first got this confuser, so I do have Windows 7 on a DVD, but I'm glad I didn't need to go thru all that hassle!!
