Topic: Anybody else try Windows 10 tech preview? (Read 25 times) previous topic - next topic


I installed it in a spare hard drive. While I was glad to see the reintroduction
of the start menu, I was otherwise not impressed.

The use of a microsoft account to sign in is ridiculous and too much like "big brother"

I also dislike the tiles on the start menu. And performance doesn't seem that good
(although it is beta)

Also, it contains a keylogger!

we may collect typed characters and use them for purposes such as improving autocomplete and spellcheck features.
I suspect W7 will be around for a long time like XP and maybe prompt more people to migrate
to alts like GNU/Linux
Avoid throwing electronics out as you or someone else might need them for parts or use.
Solid state rectifiers are the only REAL rectifiers.
Resistors for LEDS!


I've loaded it in a virtual machine running in Win 7.
I like the interface better than the Windows 8(.1) one. At least the start button's back, and I don't mind the tiles in the start menu. They're better there than on the 'modern tile interface' of 8.
I also don't like the insistence on a password to do anything (same as on 8). There's no access password on my Win 7 machine. The only people who have access to it are my family and I trust them. 
Hopefully, the keylogger is only in the preview and will be removed in the final version.

I've got it in a VM.
Meh; I was starting to like the "start page" in 8.1 (used IN ADDITION to the desktop/start menu, mind you.)

(I've discovered that W8.1 and presumably 10 don't work very well in VMs, due to the whole licensing/activation situation.  It's going to be a real PITA.)  (Probably W7, too.  But I mostly skipped that.)
