My younger brother Ted, fresh from our joint Pismo Beach adventure, accepts the "free" update to Windows 10 and posted his impressions.
. . . It seemed to boot fast and seemed to have all my programs and settings. Well except for my Printer Driver and Video Card. Too bad it looks like a version of Windows designed for 8 year olds. In fact I’ve had more then one person tell me that screen looked like an XBox with the large clunky icons.Bear in mind that Ted does this for a living, and is more comfortable swapping operating systems than a "civilian" might be.
Once I got the right video driver installed it actually seemed like a pretty responsive OS and in fact, someday I might (or might not) go back to it.
Until then it’s nice to know that Macrium Reflect restored the image I’d made the night before (I told you I did a backup) in under 10 minutes. . .
I suppose that eventually this computer will wear down totally and need to be replaced, and the new one will have W10, but old dogs and all, I probably won't try it until then.
