Default Made the jump to windows 10 today :)

So after a long battle against a worst OS, I purchased a small form factor PC
to build it into an HTPC.
I installed Dell's image of Windows, updates it, etc, then upgraded free to windows 10
which still works today.

I proceeded to neutralize Cortana with a reg key and group policy.
Then used this great info page to remove a LOT of blatware like XBOX, mail, etc:

https://www.wintips.org/view-install...om-powershell/

I, of course, chose to turn off all the bog brother crap upon install which is now a menu.

Overall a nice experience.

If you want to upgrade to 10 for free, follow this guide:



Also, nice set of improvements coming for bloat allergic people like me:

Never had a single issue with 10 here. Not sure why you say it's a nightmare.

I've seen your thread about moving to linux, and I kinda chuckle when I see you trying to figure out how to game in a VM.

Yes, I still have to use Windows for work some(most) games.
My biggest issue with Win10 is they made my user experience worse. Mostly because of one issue... right click lag. I was a right-click warrior . Now: right-click, wait, crap wrong context menu, wait, right-click again, correct context menu.

My right-click context menu appears instantly for me. Zero lag.

Google indicates it is not an uncommon problem. There are things one can do to improve it. I was not able to eliminate it on my home PC and my work PC(corp IT managed) is awful.

Open folder, right click file, get menu and properties for parent folder... Just happened this AM on my work PC.
