This is meant to be a discussion of the Windows 10 tech preview and the upcoming windows 10 release. If all you're going to do is come in here to naughtyword about Windows 8, go make your own thread

So I decided to give the new Windows 10 tech preview a try. So far I'm liking it.

I like the redesigned icons.

The new start menu(yes menu, not screen) works pretty well so far.

If I want to use the start screen instead for a touch system(or just personal preference) I can still do so by going to taskbar properties and changing a simple setting, but start menu is the default. I think it's nice touch, now everyone can be happy(I hope).

Charms bar on the other hand can't be used with mouse anymore, touch input only. For the best I suppose, I never really used it and it would get in the way sometimes.

You can open multiple instances of the 'Desktop'... That's an unexpected feature. I don't know if any of the articles about it mentioned this(I don't really read them cuz spoilers) but it's pretty cool and I think it will come in handy.

The overall metro style is still there. I like the boxed modern feel 8 had so I'm glad to see 10 kept it.

Still just a beta build, not very optimized yet. My computer when doing absolutely nothing is still running at 17% CPU usage.

I'm not happy with speed, but I wasn't interested in installing over my OS on my SSD and instead partitioned off my 2TB HDD, so the OS probably isn't the problem. I'll have to reinstall on the SSD to see for sure.

So, has anyone else given it a shot?

I actually haven't seen it. I will look it up after i make this post but yeah. Wonder why they skipped 9 tho. Maybe they double the performance with this version.

I downgraded to 7 when i got the 8 just because DBO wasn't compatible, no joke lol. I wanted to go back but decided it doesn't matter it's the same shit.

Lets check it out. Feel free to update the first post with videos or screens so viewers can check it out easier.

Will do, but I'm gonna reinstall it over my 8.1 OS first, now that I'm satisfied it will actually run and I won't be stuck without a working computer. Give it a proper testing on my SSD.

One of my steam friends seems to think that they're gonna release a free update to 8.1 and call it Windows 9, but I haven't seen any articles to confirm that, and I've looked.

Interesting. I wonder if I'll be able to get the upgrade. I did buy windows 8.1 but DRM for it was a complete nightmare so I went with pirate copy. Easier to deal with.

By the way, I should mention for anyone that wants to try it, the beta will not work on virtualbox. I tried.

But what happened to Windows 9? I thought that was going to be a thing.

Do what I did. I partitioned off about 100GB from my HDD and installed it. The windows 8.1/windows 10 boot manager is actually pretty good.

From what I read they named it 10 instead of 9 because there won't be another version of windows or something... I don't know, I don't get their logic here.

Seem's very plausible.


I've spend about 12 hours now by the way playing Kerbal Space Program with mods on this OS and it seems very stable so far. Gonna get into more demanding games soon.
