Mainly just for Microsoft Word and Excel and to datalog with my Laserbee.

Windows 10 definitely runs smoother. I have not experienced any lag whatsoever with the new OS. It also eliminated the need to disable driver signature enforcement every time I reboot my computer.
Performance on older machines is definitely interesting. I have a 5-6 year old HP laptop that i use as a media system mostly (just hdmi linked to my tv) which runs on win 7. It offers to upgrade to win 10, but i wonder if i should.

The thing runs fine as it is, and all it does it mostly download torrents and play the downloaded files through VLC onto the TV. Would there be -any- reason to take that system to win 10 apart from extended support in the far future? The machine is a HP 5320M (i5 540M, 4 GB ram, 1 TB storage) laptop.

No issues at all running on a equal age i5 laptop... if anything computer feels faster on W10.

That said, I would hold off for the time being, until service pack 1 rolls around.

Default Re: Windows 10 , Have you?

Good to know it runs okay on systems from that era.

I wonder if it actually IS faster under W10 or just feels that way. I remember doing a clean install of win 7 when i retired the laptop for use as a media box and getting the 'fresh install' speed back. Since it does little more than download stuff and play videos it still is pretty good.

I suppose you are missing a driver there, perhaps try to find a newer version of the video or chipset driver.

Default Re: Windows 10 , Have you?

Definitely sounds like a driver issue. Check with the laptop manufacturer for W10 compatible drivers. For one of my laptops I had to download drivers separately for the network card.

If there are none, you may want to try installing W8 drivers anyway, as they seem to mostly work with W10.

@Benm - I have a tendency to keep task manager open quite a bit, and my general observation is that W10 is actually faster, but in part due to using somewhat more ram. On a W7 install, using the same exact programs, I was at about 2.5gb of ram, now with W10, same use, at 3.1gb.

That's on a desktop though, which is 90%+ of my pc use.

Default Re: Windows 10 , Have you?

That RAM issue is interesting. Would you think win 7 is swapping ram to disk before it's actually required, giving win 10 a speed advantage by avoiding that?

On my main system i have win 8.1 with 8 gb of ram installed. With light usage it reports that 4.3 gb or so is 'in use' (dont ask me for what purpose!). Obviously that system would still run fine with 4 gb memory installed for most applications, so it seems that windows kinda fills whatever it can get unless it becomes a problem, although i don't see anything running that would require 4.3 gigs of ram at all.

Default Re: Windows 10 , Have you?

I wouldn't be surprised if that's the way W10 does feel faster. I've also noted a problem though in having some processes in triplicate or more, or running non stop that really don't do much of anything.

Noticed the same problem before at home, along with a ton of other bugs, that have all been wiped by doing a clean install instead of an upgrade.

Default Re: Windows 10 , Have you?

What processes did you have running?

I'm sure that on many systems that have been used a long time their performance is reduced to the all the crap that has been installed on it, partly removed, leaving the registry full of shit etc. Despite cleaning software being available it rarely gets as good as a fresh install (which then, in case of windows 7, spends the better part of a day installing 300+ updates/patches/etc).

I wonder how this will pan out for windows 10 - i understood the intention was that this would actually be the final version number and it would be maintained by updates basically forever.

Default Re: Windows 10 , Have you?

Devicesetup, and an nvidia process were the two that stick out in my memory... the nvidia one brought my laptop to a crawl before I found and killed it. Udpate seems to have gotten rid of the issue.

The devicesetup one on my desktop was an issue and kept cropping up right up until I did a clean install. That also resolved the issue with my keyboard not working, despite the system showing it as having been installed literally a few 100 times.

Love Windows 10...

So far I've upgraded about 7 machines at work after I did two of mine at home... (all from Windows 7)

Just as with Windows 7, you need Windows 10 Pro in order to join domain/server...

Good to hear.

I think MS have done really good with Windows 10.
Is it perfect ? no...is it better than Windows 7 ? yes.

Default Re: Windows 10 , Have you?

So far W10 got stuck on the loading screen twice, making me unable to access it again until I did a reinstall. Overall I'm still of opinion that it's a good OS, but there's definitely some work to be done. I also dislike that it tracks every move you make. Until you disable it all, of which some require registry edits to be disabled.

The tracking features are now deployed via updates in windows 7, and windows 8, so if privacy is the main concern, at this point windows 10 is no better or worse.

I've run into some minor bugs, but at this point I have no issues staying with windows 10.

Oh that's a shame. I used a free tool that disables the tracking completely. Sadly I only figured out there was such tool the last time I reinstalled.

If someone was really that concerned about security they would be using Linux to begin with.

Default Re: Windows 10 , Have you?

There is some really annoying stuff with regards to changing the window styles to not look like bleak white all the time. Would it have really hurt Microsoft to retain the ability to have different colors for active and non-active windows? Even those Aero hacks only half-work. At least 10 doesn't have those idiotic Windows 3.1-esque centered text titlebars like 8.x. What UI-design intern thought that up?

Some of my aggravations are probably because my Windows 10 machine is a Lenovo laptop that I'm not hugely impressed with. Maybe when I eventually switch my desktop it'll be better. I hate being a early adopter.
