Windows 10

Posted By on August 29, 2015

So, I’ve upgraded to Windows 10. It’s sort of halfway between Windows 7 and Windows 8 in terms of all the Windows 8 crap they added. The multiple desktops are about the worst I’ve ever found, and dialog boxes raised to the top of the stack tend to disappear as soon as you move your mouse (the “new desktop” button does the same thing). You have to raise the dialogs by clicking their parent app on the taskbar, and you need to click and hold and then release and then click again in order to get to the new desktop button. This may be a bug related to my existing Win 7 install which I upgraded, but who knows.

Aside – Classic Shell is a decent add-on for modern versions of Windows to, most notably, bring back the old start menu. It does other things too.

So, yeah, 10 is worse than 7 as far as UI goes, but who the hell cares? If you’re using Windows to do real work, I’m sorry. It’s still only suitable for video games, and that’s mainly because you just run steam in fullscreen mode.
