  1. Your fav version of Windows 9x?

    for me it is Windows 98 SE it was my first windows experience and it supports most of the games I want to play (older ones of course from my childhood)
  2. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

  3. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    my surface is still sitting on the shelf. one day ill get to it probably maybe. -helpdesk98
  4. Windows 10 S Announced Today

    "might be useful for school" was my first thought before reading the whole article. after reading the article my thoughts were "why?"
  5. Windows 10 S Announced Today

    When I first here about this my thought was this might be useful for school/businesses that use remote applications ie. citrix remote desktop applications, but then I read the part about The Windows Store. All hope faded right then and their.
  6. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    even new computers with Windows 10 have had issues with network adapters. I have a Surface thing (got it cheep) and after receiving the blob of updates I could no longer access the internet. Needless to say it was about a month before I had the will to go and fix it lol.
  7. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    agreed I have an old netgear adapter and I have to have their software to use wifi. It was not programmed for the average user and confuses anyone who has to use it "user interface" once the software loads you can use the native Windows wifi utility to connect, but you have to do it manually every time. I will be happy to see that system go! on another note got hit with Windows updates and decided that it was in my best interest to crash the computer I may never turn it back on. -helpdesk98
  8. i will be looking into this new development! -helpdesk98
  9. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    random Windows 10 question are you able to link your windows activation to your MS account I don't recall what screen I was looking at that game me this thought, but if it is possible this may in some cases may be a benefit especially in the case of lost product key.
  10. What's Your Anticipation Level?

    I am not greatly interested in the touch features for the most part I don't care for touch it has its places ie: POS and My amazon fire tablet for book reading/remote and smart phone to a point. I am interested in seeing if Windows 10 on a Microsoft produced device is any better then say on my gaming rig (I feel like I am a bit too old to use that word). It is just curiosity.
  11. What's Your Anticipation Level?

    I would rate my self at a 5 ill get to it eventually maybe if I mess with the current stable-ish build. I am officially running a W10 machine now it is a surface so I will see what that is like compared to my VM. Have not done anything with it yet got to get a keyboard and a touch pen.
  12. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    since the topic of DNS servers popped up any thoughts on pi-hole? (looks like it would be a good cheep basic dns server) have not had a chance to mess with it yet.
  13. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    I think it will be hard to replace windows than most people think I have clients (i mostly do extremely small business owners/ home clients) and they ultimately will put up with the BS Microsoft shoves out even against my advisement. Most don't have the money for Mac and absolutely no tolerance for learning Linux it took me over two years to explain the difference between open Office (now Libra Office ugh) vs MS Office / rent office (2016). I am not sure what to do at this point I am winging it giving my customers what I belive to be their best option at the time. If it happens to be Windows 10 or a monthy sub then so be it. They say this what I want and I say Yes sir/mam
  14. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    I am using Fedora with mate it works well for the most part, but It dose have some issues (i think my problem may be hardware related too) were administrative tools work one day then fail the next.
  15. FINALLY got Win 10 usable again

    I miss Windows 98 the first system I ever used. I dreaded the day I had to move on, however, I got my start working on 98 and a lot of the experiences help me even now. back on subject I have to say @NoelC your system looks amazing and the amount of control you have over it.
