It seems that Microsoft bring out a new operating system every 3 years or so. It is getting impossible to keep up with it. The recent new version of Windows is Windows 10 which I have tried one of the builds a few months ago. While I found that all of the software that I used on Windows 8 works on Windows 10. There are things that I don't like about it which are the changes. One of the the worst changes is that you will no longer be able to hide or disable automatic updates on Windows 10. And this is one of the main reason why I don't want to upgrade. I am running Windows 7 32 bit which I use most of the time and I also use Windows 8 32 bit. I don't have 8.1 because I never bothered to buy it because I already have 8. Though I did use an RTM trial version when it first came out.Windows 8.1 is just an updated version of Windows 8 and is the same as 8 except that it has a few added features such as the start button, but works the same as Windows 8. Windows 10 is supposed to be like Windows 8 except that it has a start menu so you don't have to ad third party software to re-instate it as you did in 8 and 8.1. But a lot of the features we know and loved are now gone in Windows 10. The main feature that is removed is the option to disable updates altogether and to control how you install updates. As you know in Windows 7 and 8 and all past versions of Windows you can chose not to update at all or to download or notify of updates but you chose wen or if you want to install them. But in Windows 10 you won't be able to do this. You will have to have automatic updates whether you like it or not. And this will mean that if get have an update or software you don't want to install, update will install it anyway and you won't be able to hide or stop it. Also there is no Winhlp update in Windows 10 so you won't be able to view any of your Winhelp files that come with your 16 bit software. Although you will still be able to use 16 bit apps if you have 32 bit Windows 10 but not read the help files! The old personalize options the right click is gone and from the look of the latest build the OS is quite ugly looking. And the old Windows Vista and 7 icons that were also on Windows 8 are gone. Now you have these ugly Metro or Comic Cartoon like icon on all of your folders. YUK. I don't see the need for a Windows 10 and there is no point in it. Since most Windows users have only just started using Windows 7 now that Windows XP is no longer supported and have only just gotten used to Windows 8. So why should I use this when I still have Windows 7 which will still be supported for any 5 years until 2020 and Windows 8 until 2023 (same with 8.1.) If you are going to try something a bit different I suppose you can use Windows 8 but Windows 10-NO. I say give it a miss if you still have Windows 7 or 8 which most people do have.
