First Impressions Of The Last Version Of Windows — 3 Comments

  1. Good article Paul. Thank you for sharing your experience. I did my first upgrade to Win 10 on July 30th. Installation was a breeze. It killed the Norton install, but an updated version became available and the new install of Norton went smooth. Now… How do I like Win 10? I was expecting this to be all that it has been talked up to be, but I am really disappointed with the performance. The new Edge browser is really slow and is really hogging system resources. I’m not talking about a watered down computer either. This computer is an Intel Core i7 with 8GB RAM. I’ll be trying Firefox on it next per your recommendation above as that has been my preferred browser on WIN 7 as well. In addition it seems like any amount of muti-tasking that i try becomes a nail biteing waiting game. Looking forward to reading more as time rolls on. I’m certain Microsoft will get this Edge thingy worked out? Or maybe that was in Windows 9? Did we miss that somewhere?

    • Darrell, I’m wondering if something else is going on with the speed issue because my install was on a VMWare virtual machine with a 2 processor, 2GB RAM and 60GB drive space setup. Granted I have spent a lot of time testing the multi-tasking functionality, but I didn’t see a lot of problems with the speed. I’ll come back and post more after I spend some more time with it. Let me know if you find a configuration issue that improves your speed. I also want to point out that in the past, I’ve always avoided upgrades because I believe there’s always a risk that potential issues can be picked up from one version to the next, so let me know what your experience is after you do a fresh and completely new install.
