Whenever Microsoft, or in fact any software firm, release a major update to their software, there is some trepidation about both the process of upgrading as well as the end result. Windows 10 is no exception.
Following a smooth and easy upgrade process, I would like to just provide some thoughts on my experience with Windows 10 after 2 weeks of use.
Windows 10 seems fast. Really fast. Now it might be largely down to my i5 processor and snappy SSD in my Dell XPS 13, but Windows 10 does seem very quick. Even on older computers, there seems to be some great performance improvement. I upgraded a 3 year old Acer laptop equipped with an i3 and despite it’s old fashioned (non-SSD) hard drive, it was running well.
The odd bug
At Aylsham Computers, we have been asked to upgrade a few computers to Windows 10. It is possible to upgrade quite easily, except in some cases it’s not so simple. For example, while it is always advisable to backup all user data, we may also be required to fix driver issues. I’d say where there has been a problem so far, it has mostly be down to device drivers. But this is often the case with new operating systems. It takes a little while for manufactures to release updated software.
Despite these odd hiccups, however, we have seem far fewer problems that I recall in the wake of the release of Windows 8 a few years back.
