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!

They’ve been doing some other cool stuff lately, like the ui on their phone, which was really ahead of the “flat design” fad. Glad the install went well.
