Actually my Windows 10 shut itself off then did a reboot after downloading and installing and running an Update that monopolized my computer for two and a half hours!!

I was able to practice a few guitar licks I'd been working on and build a wooden contained for the kitchen and organize my sock drawer, and.... ;) O0

It just makes one wonder what actually IS being installed in your computer when these lengthy installs and upgrades happen.

It's really not our computer is it?...We just rent the license to use it.

Hearing the scary things about the problem with the updates really turns me off, and stay away from them through settings, then eventually the updates accumulated so much that I don't even bother with it anymore.

Aside from that, it baffles me on what the developers of Windows 10 were even doing. Do they even listen to our feedback? Blatant bugs and glitches that was introduced at the very launch was still there today's latest Windows 10 edition.

Perhaps the help desk really makes everything worse. I wonder if they even report the problems that they've consulted with their clients to the devs at all...

Gosh...

Don't know what to say really apart from I'm loving Win 10, easily the best OS I have ever used.

Besides the problems, I actually do agree with Data that Windows 10 is the best OS by far!  ;D

I'm liking 10 too. It has some flaws in the app department though and MS don't show much interest in fixing them, but it's been easy to find alternatives.

I have a couple of i7 lappies running up to date Windows 10 that I use for mainly internet browsing/ work etc. I'm not keen on Microsoft's new business/ software model and refuse to have anyone randomly updating or prying into my main machines/ networks.

Most of my other lappies and cluster/ Pc’s are running a heavily customised version of XP Professional (NT/XP).  They aren't connected to the web though for various security reasons so malware/ viruses aren't an issue.

Windows 7 was 20% slower at running generic applications than XP.  Windows 10 is 32% slower on average. I require a light weight OS that uses the least amount of resources and gives the best single core speed benchmarks.

Windows 10 seems like a stable OS and once you get used to its foibles and disable all the ‘enhancements’ its quite user friendly… if a little slow… though once upgraded to 10… what choice does the common user have.

 :)
It thunk... therefore it is!

Yeah, I know what you mean and I feel your pain. You are at the mercy of the giant. There's always the Android OS and aside from that round piece of Fruit, there's probably several hundred versions or Distros (Distributions) of Linux.

There really is something for everyone no matter the skill set or interest. The vast majority of the Distros are Open Source and offer a huge assortment of Free Apps for business, science, gaming, research, development, production, finance, writing, etc.

It does take a bit of self study before taking the plunge into a new Operating System but one your feet are wet, your body will warm up to Linux rather nicely. ;)
===================================
To Quote Michael Strewig from Quora: There are virtually a limitless amount of Linux distributions available on the internet. Some are available for free and others paid. Due to Linux's immense versatility and open-source nature, anybody or organization that requires a task-specific OS can simply build their own distribution, and potentially release it. This has resulted in distributions focused solely on testing security, to file servers to full-blown desktop environments.
===================================
Just some thoughts in case one gets tired of the invasive nature of some of these Operating Systems and their respective companies.

We still have some options. O0
