Well, I have a W10 partition on my system. I upgraded it from W8 (I had a college license about to expire).
I upgraded from a W8 fresh install, and I can't shutdown the computer, it simply doesn't work. In order to don't lose data I have to close my user session and restart the system, and when BIOS screen appears I have to push the power button until it halts.

And also, updates doesn't work either. I have an update that tries to be installed whenever I boot using w10 (which I tend to be never), and after some minutes it yields that it was impossible to fulfill the update, it rollbacks everything and boots "normally".

Besides of this I really think W10 is a very good OS. Every time I must use it, I realize how much I like linux, and I appreciate it's strengths even more.

Windows 10 is a disaster, I bought a laptop with it 2 weeks ago and the first time I turned it on I got this message: "setup may take up to 30mins" or something like that, after filling a few FAKE details I got > "taking care of a few things" and took forever. Then after 20mins or so filling unwanted crap I load to the desktop.

That's as far as I went though, I didn't bother to explore the OS as I already felt a sense of repulsion knowing all the internet shit and how Microsoft is trying to improve "my experience". Next thing I did was wipe the OS (and the recovery partition) and happily installed Linux.

Every time people ask me to upgrade their Win7 system to Win10 my expression is like "facepalm".

Hehe, my wife is the exact same way. Whenever she opens her laptop it's to do something, and knowing she has to reboot, she keeps putting these things off.

Meanwhile, I opened a terminal, "sudo dnf upgrade", and it finished updating by the time this guy was done screaming. Loving my OS.

I'm sure Win 10 is a fine OS. I just simply cannot agree to their
privacy policy. I also think Windows is too overpriced.

The only reason I have Windows 10 at work is because I used the free upgrade to it to fix a problem with Windows 7

W10 problems:
1) MS "Zero Privacy" policy
1.1) Keylogger
1.2) audio-logger
2) Advertisements
3) password sharing
4) W10 installation & update files (automatic) uploading

I love it
Bought a new laptop and it came preinstalled, unforunately there was some conflict between AMD drivers and Windows pulling in drivers for the AMD card.
Kept geting black screen and popup about amd had recovered bla bla bla.

So i grabbed a fresh official iso and made a clean install, never been happier
But needed some tinkering
