Well... I'm not one of them and here are a few reasons why:
- I don't need to! Yeah, that's right, Windows 10 doesn't bring anything new that I need.
- Start Menu is back! So!? I've never been much of a start menu user so the lack of it isn't such a big deal for me. I've got my most used apps pinned to the taskbar, 6 other not so used apps pinned to the start screen and the rest of my portable apps are pinned to the Total Commander button bar, which is always opened.
- New browser! Really!? Who needs another browser? Not me... Since I'm locked in the Google ecosystem, Chrome is my best option.
- Performance increase... I've got a pretty powerful laptop with a SSD for the OS and I can't imagine how can things be any faster? I've got like a 3-4 seconds boot and all the apps are launching really fast.
- Improved Windows Explorer... are you kidding me!? It still doesn't have a tabbed interface. Anyway I use Total Commander as my main file browser so there's no need to use explorer at all.
- DirectX 12... I'm not much of a gamer anymore so DirectX 11 will have to do for now.
- Cortana... Hey Cortana... give me a break and uninstall yourself!
- Virtual desktops... yeah they were cool like 15 years ago when I've installed my first Linux distro. Congrats M$ for finally catching up!
- The last thing I need right now is a fresh install of the OS! Update is not a good option of course.
- And last but not least... I like my customized taskbar too much! Yep, in Windows 10 Microcrap doesn't allow the taskbar to be skinned from the msstyle file. Bad move since the taskbar is the only UI element you see all the time and after a while it will get boring. Eventually I'll have to upgrade to Windows 10 so I guess I'll have to go back to Litestep or BBlean of something!
For those of you still using Windows 8.1 and are annoyed by the Windows 10 Upgrade Notification, here's a solution for you:
Go to Windows Update > Installed updates and search for the KB3035583 update.
Uninstall this update and restart... and voila!
How about you? Are there still some other Windows 8.1 users out there?
