3 Weeks After its Release, Microsoft’s Windows 10 Still A Bad Deal


By Mohamed Zeinaedine | The Inquisitr

Editor’s Note: Sometimes, things that are given away for free are still a bad deal. They may have hidden costs that make you wish you had never taken the product. So it seems with Microsoft’s Windows 10. At a time when people are fighting for internet & otherwise privacy and grousing about how our corporations are being intimidated into handing over our information, Microsoft puts out rigged software that makes it easier for data collection. For this reason and others, I urge you to read this post, do your own research & make a well-informed decision about whether or not Windows 10 is really worth putting on your computer – even if it is free.

Windows 10 took the computer industry by storm on July 31 with millions of people taking advantage of the operating system’s free upgrade offer from Microsoft’s previous Windows versions — Windows 7, 8, and 8.1.

Since then, Windows 10 has been receiving a confusing mix of praise and criticism, with some praising it for its new features and design, and others complaining about privacy issues, software bugs, and hardware incompatibility.

While Microsoft has been trying hard to fix the Windows 10 flaws that have been surfacing since its beta version was released months earlier, many Windows users are still hesitant to upgrade right away and have decided to wait a few months till more bugs and flaws are resolved.

The worst news for Windows 10 came earlier this week, with Computer World reporting that the new operating system’s usage share has slowly dropped over the past week.

That’s right. Windows 10, which caught tech headlines just a few weeks ago, has seen its usage share decline from almost 6.6 percent on Sunday to 5.7 percent on Tuesday. Yet Computer World’s Gregg Keizer described the decline as “normal.”

“Consumer-oriented operating systems, as are the vast bulk of those that have been upgraded to Windows 10, typically peak on weekends, then fall when people return to work where they sit in front of an older OS on their office devices.”

The Windows 10 compatibility issues, bugs, privacy concerns, and rumors may have led many Windows users who hurriedly upgraded to Windows 10 to decide to switch back to their earlier Windows versions that they’ve been using for months and years.

Infoworld has even published “10 reasons you shouldn’t upgrade to Windows 10,” listing Windows 10’s forced updates, its incompatibility with some widely used apps, and the absence of the famous Windows Media Center as major reasons why some would prefer not to upgrade to Windows 10 so soon.

Euronews also listed the pros, cons, successes, and failures of Windows 10.

What has Windows 10 been good at according to Euronews?

  • Getting millions to download it
  • Bringing back the start menu (with a slightly new look, but definitely better that the Windows 8 start screen)
  • Its “geek approval”
  • And the fact that some Apple users are starting to love it
