"If you want privacy in W10, the privacy monkey bars do litttle or nothing. You need to investigate and use tousands of command line hacks, unistall programs like onedrive with undocumented and unsupported hacks, cripple and destroy Cortana (Which cannot be uninstalled, and ignores any user "disabling" as blesses by MS). Stopping Cortana also destroys the taskbar search, crippling W10, bevause the start button menu is useless witouth the takbar search..
You also need to run a third party firewall like Comodo, and configure hundred of settings for each program you use.
Privacy under W10 is umbearable, cumbersome, more complex that Linux, unstable and provides no guarantees"
I'm loving the vagueness. Is there any... uh, say video proof of this working? And why does this need to be done, exactly? This seems like an offhanded comment - plus, they're not called "monkey bars", and someone who would know how to do this would surely be calling them "sliders".
MIDI support is provided by a software synthesizer. Often on a non-Windows OS, this is something that will either be installed on its own, or it will be built-in to a media player, and the OS itself does not include it. Windows includes and has included its own MIDI synth for as long as I can remember. When I was on Windows 10 for a few months I had zero problems playing MIDI files using Windows Media Player.
I just played a MIDI file.
Also, could someone point me to the thread RanAS was talking about; I want to see why they said there was no MIDI support.
Windows Media Player (which was kept for legacy reasons) hasn't changed; so that can play MIDI files just fine. The replacement, called "Music" probably can't; and if that is the case, then that's where this comment comes from.
Just to prove that I am making progress; those enemies are called "Boom Guys", and they're from Mario + Luigi: Partners in Time (a great game), on the DS. The red ones take 3 hits to destroy their cannon, and they fire less often than the blue ones, that take 5 hits to destroy their cannon. When their cannon is destroyed, they'll run around really fast (with the blue ones being REALLY fast).
Also, hooray for Imgur when Lightshot starts being a dork.
Okay, I went ahead and updated, though I haven't finished the installation yet. The option that sends your typing data to Microsoft...is that just things you type in dialog boxes and the like, or is that everything you type while using the system, including posts on social media and online forums, creative writing, etc.?
No, a look into my profile will tell you that, came here just because someone linked me to this thread.

I did, and Windows 10 indeed breaks usability IMO, it's just much more easier for me to link a compiled list made by someone else than reliving that nightmare.

you were ignoring a lot of other points made in this thread (by different people). Like, for example, Direct3D 12 support. How is Direct3D 12 "a pure asthetic matter"? It is an obvious advantage of Windows 10 and something Windows 7 doesn't have. And yes, to a gamer, that alone can actually be a more than valid point.
I'm not ignoring, yes, for a gamer that can be a valid point, but Direct X 12 doesn't compensate all the flaws the whole OS brings with it, you loose more than you win if you are going to use your computer for something other than gaming.
Again, Windows 10 doesn't bring anything new except a modern interface and a lot more trouble to set up things.
It's easier to set up and use - a trend that's occuring a lot with more modern OS's.
Typical argument from a regular user, who doesn't know how to use a computer to its full extent.
I'm not a typical user; that was an observation I made from what I thought - I thought it was easier to use, not that I'm overly concerned about that. I'd use Windows even if it did resemble it's predecessor, MS-DOS.
It's up to you guys to decide wether the OS is good or not. From my point, everyone who aims for intuitiveness will not find it on Windows 10, the articles I linked before sum up pretty much the OS' problems, you don't have to agree, specially if you don't even know half of the options your computer has to show or you don't care at all for intuitiveness.
Wasn't being childish. I was insulted because I assumed you compared me to a "regular consumer", which I am not.
Also, aren't you being childish by basically saying that we don't know anything about the computers we use? But, I digress; the articles you linked make valid points; and I merely disagree with them on the basis that I like Windows 10; and sure, it has it's problems (nothing is perfect), I find it to be a vastly superior experience to Windows 7, and especially 8/8.1 - you think differently, and that's completely fine.
Also, I must add another great new feature:
• Casting - it works like a charm, and allows you to cast images, music (I believe) and videos to compatible devices. Being a "regular consumer", this is great!
But it only has 2 genders, not 3. I never understood why nouns are male or female, or in German, gender neutral as well. Are they trying to confuse non-speakers trying to learn the language? Too often it happens when someone gets points taken off for wrong gender. Why do things like cars, computers, televisions, bicycles, umbrellas, and everything including the kitchen sink have to have a gender? Do they just have some kind of council where they flip a coin to assign genders to random objects?
I bet this wouldn't happen as much if I say that the noun in question is a transgender noun. A masculine noun wanting to identify as a feminine noun, or vice versa.
I had a really, really long post explaining this written up just for you. Then I realised that it was boring. So, just read this.
