    My windows 10 installs have always give me some garbage about my system isn’t support or other stuff. My windows 8 and lower. I use windows 10 only on 3 computers: new 31 with almost everything but hazardous locations, my gaming rig, and my hated Compaq machine. (Compaq never actually cared but that sits in shelf with other unloved things like broken power adapters)

    Got a MS reminder email just this morning that W7 support ends on Jan 14.
    Soon as I post this I'm off to see if I can find a 'how to' guide on how to make W10 less ugly and awkward.
    Guess it's time to install it on one of my TBs and try to get used to the hideous thing...
    I suppose I'll have to put it on one of the newer ones and Linux the rest.

    Try stay as long you can on old. The new is disgusting. What you need for Win 10 below. As well ask in the thread if needed http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...stallation-guide.781178/page-79#post-10935720

    Huge blessing to all who contributed to make Win 10 a bit better than a puke festival

    If you are going to do it then read up on the link above by Ultra Male . He has a lot of tips on W10 plus a whole lot more.

    Thanks, guys,
    downloaded x86 and x64 iso's & burned them to discs last night.
    Put the hdd from the CF-31 I bought fro Russia in my spare 52 Mk1 caddy and installing x64 - hope I hate it less than I did W8.

    If you use things like StartIsBack and AeroGlass it is aesthetically pleasing. The default UI is not as atrocious as W8 (which is absolutely dreadful), but those two apps will make it aesthetically tolerable. It will not perform as well as W7 does. If you run benchmarks, you will notice almost all of them are lower because W10 is so bloated and bogged down with useless rubbish that sucks up CPU clock cycles. (Unless your Windows 7 install was old and cluttered, in which case it will start out feeling as if it is snappier as a clean OS installation, for that reason alone.)

    It is bad but for me on a tablet pc it’s not as bad. I hate 8 on cursor but with finger/stylus I like it

    I think Microsoft will have to make Windows 11. Just to let all Win10 haters an opportunity to migrate to the "last old good OS" (it will be Win10 of course) and hate the buggy and awful latest Win11 :)))

    The thing is all of the good Windows OS's are going to be out of support.
