has anyone thought that just simply be the operator in this case. If you want fast load up times on any pc you use SD drive or SDHD rather than standard drive . I upgrade a old laptop number years ago and can be in word typing less than 15 sec using windows 10 . Make me wonder why making such comments about windows 10 very amusing
Oooh .. so rude!! your comments could have been made without being disparaging. please think about the impact of your statements on others.
My laptop was purchased as a standard i7 laptop to test Windows 10 on. My disdain for windows 10 is well known, if you check out the How's it going with windows 10 threads / discussion / post.
By buying an i7 with 8GB ram and standard hardware I set out to test Windows 10. I cant bag what I haven't tested thoroughly and also so many pundits telling me it is ready for business and me disagreeing, I better have some exerience with it real world, not just the odd test.
The i7 was a $1500 plus machine, not a cheap as$ $600 laptop.
Windows 10 has been a huge fail for me. Here's the latest list since that upgrade.
Windows privacy settings reverted to default settings requiring me to reset them
- 11 minutes start up this morning. Yet another update doing goodness knows what.
- VMWare machine client on laptop locked out from sharing the network and being access from the same (host machine) and yes I have netstated, firewall opened etc everything. Even turned the firewall off. Its some thing in the security settings somewhere. Moved to bog standard windows 7 freshly installed and ran first time. Go figure. failed on two x Windows 10 machines.
- CCleaner got booted off the machine (seems its not compatible despite working well for the lest two months and being a new download then).
- Reverted to 32 bit versions of Visual C redistribution as the 64 bit is not being picked up and handled by php.exe / wamp / xamp and other similar software.
- Network settings dropped out and needed to be remade.
Glad MS decided to update my pc for my convenience.
Re using an SSD drive. Not enough space, one of my VM images is 100GB on its own. I dont have a $1000 plus spare for a large enough SSD.My SSD driven laptops / desktops always have fast network access to a file server - they have to as the SSd doesn't hold enough for many business machines.
I have clients using 100Gb SSD drives, and space is often an issue. Files are getting larger, Windows folder is taking over 1/3 of the space and they are down to less than 15% disk space. Photos, large mail files, increasing levels of bloatware (Windows \SXS folder I'm looking at you) Add to that the caching that is growing for web browsers and so many offline / online systems. If they are a business user there is also often File Sync from their Domain file server and their PC. Not many Pcs now days survive on 100Gb disks and the 250Gb disk are only just coming into a reasonable price range.
Its not just about fast load up, its about the whole annoyance and kack factor, like advertising. Oh that reminds me, latest updates and MS Office file upload is restarting automatically again - another killed item returning to provide functionality I don't use while adding security wholes and network overhead. How will that be fixed by using an SSD drive?
Also on the subject of SSD drives. Windows Defender is heavy, does extra scans on startup that are not required. What will that do to the life of your ssd? Then add in the indexer, disk noise from the notifications service, and the other disk usage hogging not needed crud like tile service etc? I wouldn't be surprised to discover your SSDs die earlier than expected from all the extra disk access Windows 10 adds to your systems.
Lastly, Windows 10 has network resource issues. I have been finding errors appearing on windows 10 where it is out of network resource. Netstat shows a few pages of old connections, wait connections etc, many of them caused by windows processes or stuff that Ms puts on board like skype, office365 etc all talking back to the mother ship. Add to that 40 connections to 1e100 (google) connections from edge / web browsers and there are one heck of a lot of connections running. I am seeing network errors for out of resource when I run my stuff (ping plotter, MTR etc) which I haven't seen on Win 7, Win XP etc. Again, lots of extra noise and resource usage not required. (no its not a virus - its all traffic to akami, 1e100, skype, office, M$ etc)
**** - on the subject of SSD's windows 7, starting in 70Mb of ram, working on word docs in under 7 seconds. i3 dual core, 4Gb ram. 3 years old. I too can tune stuff.
