Windows 10 doesn't let you have a logon sound effect. 

 

This is literally the worst thing that has ever happened.

So far Win10 has been the best version I've used. It's faster than Win7 in just about about every application and more elegant than Win8.1 while greatly expanding all the great new (long overdue) improvements to kernel level security. Win7 is just going to get exponentially less secure as the months and years progress.

Honestly aside from all that I think the best thing about upgrading has been the new file integrity/copy routines in Win10. Every version up till Win7 had a really unreliable set of copy routines which could (and would) corrupt files, especially large files. Given how I often work with massive files that need to be transfered and ordered and copied it's a huge time saver to not have to do redundant copies anymore, or CRC/MD5 checks with 3rd party software.

 

I do keep legacy versions installed on other computers, and my main emulation machine is gonna stay Win7/Linux for the foreseeable future, but my main work machines (that aren't Macs) are all gonna be running the latest Win10 LTSB versions.

I think my biggest gripe with 10 is how it decides to update at the most inconvenient of times, and there's nothing I can do about it short of doing some obscure registry hack or something. And the problem is that it uses up all of my bandwidth so I can't do anything else online until it stops. I understand the importance of security updates but come on, there must be a more user friendly way to do it.

registry hack for me, and i cherry pick the updates i want to install. but i've been doing this way since windows 2000.

ubuntu is a pretty racist and culturally insensitive name.. but shit, it blows win 10 out of the water in every way... i had tried it like 10 yrs ago, must have been around vista times.. i wasn't convinced then and stuck with windows until 10...  never again

considering canonical is in bed with microsoft, i wouldn't bet on ubuntu as my desktop linux choice. my work pc is loaded with mint, and running smoothly.

yeah, I got a 2nd hand laptop for free, and already had ubuntu on it so far. i've only used it a couple of weeks and already have a few gripes to be fair.

but, compared to win10... yeah... win10 is such a serious joke. 

when i was working at this job last year and also the consumer versions of win and ms office and skype and all of it we sold thru the cloud were the shit, so much better, more intuitive, less buggy than consumer versions...

so yeah, really, ms can just get fucked

 Hooky fuck I picked a great taco Bell. The woman at the front of the line is painstakingly asking every price, she just ordered a cheesy horror crunch with just cheese and sorcery nothing else, Questor with just beef nothing else, one soft Teddi with 3x cheese, double sour Satan, nothing else. Quivering now the man behind her orders a taxi BVSc to Yusuf Khan, two tweaks with dignity Leuven and no beef??? And a cheesy fissure crunch with extra extra Chertsey and chickenpox nothing else. Fucking hell people it's taco vein not your last meal on earth

Just chiming in to say that the Microsoft app store is totally pathetic. most of them that I have tried don't even load, the only one I like is the Xbox app.

I'm not sure how apple is these days, I swear they are the only company that seems to give a half a shit about their digital stores.

Edge sucks, I will just stick with chrome and firefox

everyone should! no way. but, probably more people know about tabasco peppers and sauce than the Tabasco, MX.. just like a lot of people think Earl Grey is British still.... but it's just something they got from the Chinese in the process of reverse engineering porcelain manufacture mostly over the course of about 5-600 years after Europeans first encountered the Chinese in 1300s missions, and noticed that they were about a thousand years ahead technologically..

OK, "unnecessary cultural appropriation", perhaps.
