GUEST,SqueezeMe Tech: WXP to W10 questions? (54* d) RE: Tech: WXP to W10 questions? 20 Feb 17


Silliest thing I ever did was to upgrade from W7 to W10. Unfortunately, left it too late to roll it back. Every update is a drama with W10, so much so that I've just dragged my old Vista laptop out of the cupboard and cranked it up. Hated it when I first got it and probably had no more than 25 or 30 hours of use, but fast enough for my purposes, and with none of the BS experienced with W10. Been using it all day today and after a few tweaks and program/driver updates that took minutes rather than days, it's like a carefree holiday by comparison with W10

I have a desktop running XP for off-line (mainly audio) work. Almost tempted to put it on the net, despite the (alleged) security risks. Maybe even dual boot with Linux Mint, which I've tried before, but found a bit taxing on the old brain, though nothing remotely as problematic as W10.

Thank the Lord that Micro$oft don't make accordions....
