Welp, I finally took the plunge and upgraded my PC to Windows 10. I haven’t used it much yet, but so far I like it better than Windows 8. And I liked being able to upgrade it the same way I upgrade Ubuntu; for free over the internet without it messing up my directory structure that it took me years to cultivate. Even the desktop remained the same! I mean, just in case I pulled everything off the desktop except for stuff I didn’t care about, but all that desktop stuff I didn’t care about remained in its place.
As of yet, I can’t say much more about the operating system itself, other than it was the smoothest Windows upgrade I’ve ever done. All of the old Windows operating systems I had, I refused to upgrade until the machines running them straight up died, because I did not want to deal with the hassle. Man, I used Windows 95 FOREVER. It was actually kind of embarrassing.
And it only took Windows becoming a dwindling brand, desperate to remain relevant, to make them improve the upgrade experience.
I did actually like that cat riding a T-Rex with grabbers gif that they put out as Windows 10 promotional material, though. That was pretty cool.
Wish me luck!
