<Rick> Yeah, Windows 10 isn't very good at playing video files. No issues with Linux or Windows 7 on the same system. Feb 18, 2019 20:03:07 GMT -6

<Rick> Call me stubborn, but I am finally ready to give up on testing Windows 10. Going along with each new iteration, it has become more and more obstinate about getting installed onto a given system while chewing up more and more resources in doing so. Jun 8, 2019 12:28:33 GMT -6

<Rick> With Windows 7 soon losing support according to Microsoft, I see there has been a lot more activity on YouTube where people are seriously looking at, and reviewing alternative OS's to use instead of Windows.. Jun 8, 2019 12:35:08 GMT -6

<Rick> I compromised, I gave up on testing Windows 10 and went out and installed something much more stable called Windows 8.1! Aug 4, 2019 19:03:02 GMT -6
Guest Avatar
<Bayer A.User> Can't argue with you Rick, Stable n fully supported for a few more years. 8.1 has it's own hijinks though if one doesn't have a touchscreen. Not nearly as much fun as 7 :) Aug 11, 2019 10:03:29 GMT -6

<Rick> I was on the preview program for Windows 8 way back when. It was okay, but I had lost interest in it very quickly when the Pro edition had a known bug in it that can crash a system upon setup. I was so lucky to be one of those. Aug 11, 2019 22:11:24 GMT -6

<Rick> As for installing Windows 8.1, it is my backup plan., but Windows 7 is still my main OS. Aug 11, 2019 22:17:01 GMT -6

<einzweidrei> Wow. Does anyone come on here anymore. I've been away so long that I forgot my logon info and had to make a new profile. I'll check the board later, but looks like it's deserted. -Michael (OG Admin) Apr 7, 2020 12:10:56 GMT -6

<Rick> If you have some, we would love to hear it! Otherwise, Windows 10 is still an over boated OS that still doesn't work all that well, even when it's installed on the latest hardware according to what I've been reading in the MS forums. Nov 4, 2020 21:03:42 GMT -6

<Rick> I've been playing around with one of the latest releases of Windows 10 lately,... You still need to fight with it to get it to do what you want it to do! Dec 15, 2020 22:13:15 GMT -6 *

<Rick> Good video. It's almost hard to believe that at one time Windows 98 was the resource hog, but even then, it still ran circles around what Windows 10 can do on today's modern hardware and look a heck of alot better doing it. May 25, 2021 22:55:12 GMT -6
