    Well Edge is designed for HTML5 websites if your having issues it's probably a legacy web site
    Do you even know what you just wrote means?

    I am with those who have had no problems. I upgraded two laptops and love windows 10. Windows 8 and 8.1 drove me crazy, I hated using it. For me 10 is damn near perfect so far.

    Honestly, I've been an avid Microsoft supporter for a while now. You could say since I was 5 years old playing with MS-DOS on my father's fancy new Compaq PC. But I'm ready to say that I'm fed up with the new Windows. As far as I'm concerned, at the end of the day - it's become harder to use a computer rather than easier.

    Edge sucks right now. It's the slowest browser of anything I've ever used to since XP. Yeah, I'm sure it will get better but so they say will all the other apps on 10. I want to open my calculator real quick to crunch some numbers? It sometimes never makes it past the splash screen. I want to open up a picture off my hard disk? The photos app takes a solid minute to load. These are things that should've been solved in 1990. It has actually gotten more frustrating to use a computer than it used to be since I installed Windows 10. Edge crashes all the time, scrolling sucks, some pages are just not functional that are just fine in other browsers. It's not what was promised.

    This is just unacceptable from such a large software corporation. I think it goes to show that software is in trouble. If Apple is taking over then we're screwed. Gone will be the days of people who know how to use a command prompt. I'm probably just going to revert to 7 and be like one of the other old guys who are stuck in old technology and we swear that it is better. But I've come to realize it's true. As much as I wanted to love Windows 10, I actually I hate it. All I can say is that things are broken now that didn't used to be, and not much has gotten better if anything.

    Let's cross our fingers for Windows 11.
    Yet I've carried on working and using Windows 10 at home without an issue. Odd really.

    P.s All I seemed to read was 'Blahh blah edge, blah' and that's about it. Use internet explorer if Edge isn't ready yet.

    It's better imo.

    W10 is fantastic, probably the best Windows ever.

    I'm really afraid of what W10M will be though. I know we're still in the Tech Preview phase but in a little over 3 weeks, we'll be seeing the new phones and W10MP still feels like an Alpha. Aesthetics and UI though, it looks great.

    There's a lot I like about win 10 but I didn't create this thread to talk about my likes.

    My major complaint is that while there are some nice new features, a lot of things that used to work just fine are now bug ridden. I have experienced as well that the start menu does not open at times or has a delay. That's a core component of how the user has interacted with windows for years and now it is unreliable. Plus it's clumsy the way they list the "all apps" for desktop users. I liked how it used to be closely integrated with the file system. It still is in a way but it's become fragmented .

    I'm also not crazy about the app model. Overall they have a flimsy feeling to them, whereas win 32 felt more concrete and reliable. Plus they've forgotten to use keyboard shortcuts for navigating the apps, something I'm big on as a power user. And if there are in app keyboard shortcuts then they're less intuitive and I dont know what they are. For example on a win 32 app pressing alt gives you keyboard access to the menu bar up top. With the new apps I should be able to press alt to access those clumsy hamburger menus at least.

    The list goes on. I'm a software developer and at the end of the day I need something reliable in which I can multitask and work very rapidly on. Using windows 10 has left me feeling pretty frustrated at times. I think Win 7 was much better suited for power users. Except for virtual desktops which I appreciate very much.

    My system works like a charm on Windows 10. In fact, all five PCs I've upgraded to Windows 10 so far run better or the same with Windows 10.
    Especially my main desktop, it runs smoother even, it seems to take advantage of the SSD.

    Maybe the OP has a PC with dated specs, or should make a clean install. On one machine I opted to make a system Refresh and it solved all the issues it had. Junk carries over from one installation to the next. I recommend to do a Refresh even though you have to reinstall all the apps.

    A few other things...

    I use auto-hide the taskbar on my 13" laptop to save some screen real estate. Sometimes it gets stuck and doesn't auto hide, or it pops up while I'm doing something because Cortona wants to say hi and ask if I need anything. No I don't need anything Cortona! Go away! I'll find you when I need help! This doesn't happen often but usually right after I start my PC and have loaded say the web browser before Cortona got loaded. I can live with that.

    I think I've noticed more issues than others because as I mentioned I'm a developer and a power user, and I work very intensely and for long hours at a time. I know the ins and outs of the operating system. Yes I know what I'm doing when it comes to hardware, software, and maintenance. I'm professional with a degree in computer science.

    All of these minor bugs and inconveniences add up to me working slower than I used to be able to. I agree that overall it's a good OS but it's too unpolished. I feel like I'm still on the tech preview and we're waiting for the official release in October (which it should've been). I do think it will get better though in future updates. But for now I shall create this thread to express my frustration.

    And yes I think part of my problem is that I haven't done a fresh install. My laptop has been running the tech preview since March and should probably get a clean installation. I'm sure it will resolve some of the issues but I don't see it curing everything. My work machine I upgraded from Windows 8 and it has gotten severe problems with system processes using 100% disk at times, which renders it virtually unusable for a while. I'm hoping that a clean install there will resolve that issue as well (fingers crossed).

    And actually as I was just writing this I opened up the start menu and it wouldn't close. Had to restart explorer with task manager. It's the little things that were working in Windows 98 that are broken now that I'm talking about here.

    There won't be a windows 11. Windows 10 is the last one. Honestly, Microsoft should have just taken their time and released the OS in October/November with phones and xbox. Things will get better with updates but the issues make Microsoft look so bad.
    Why do you believe there won't be a Windows 11? What do you believe the next Windows will be called or the future of Windows in general.

    Windows 10 is a terrible OS. Even Windows 8.1 is better for what it was designed for.

    Windows 7 is the last and remains the last solid Microsoft OS release. So sad since I've used Microsoft products since having a MS-DOS laptop and Windows 3.11 PC. Made the switch to the Mac earlier this year, and I'm not regretting it.

    Windows 10 is the final version of Windows I am afraid, Microsoft confirmed that by announcing it is the last version and is now a 'service'. Which is ironic because it doesn't serve us, we serve it, with our personal information.

    Those who believe 7 is 'more solid' than 8.1 are those who are having a rare compatibility issue of some sort, or else they just haven't yet heard of Classic Shell. Switching to the Mac, and not regretting it, is probably suggesting that the latter holds true.

    More often than not those who complain about Win10 being unstable have done an upgrade from Win7 or Win8.1 instead of doing a clean installation IMO....

    Except for virtual desktops which I appreciate very much.
    Virtual desktops have been available on Windows since XP. There's a FREE utility from Microsoft called desktops (that is part of SysInternals suite of tools on Microsoft Technet) that allows you to have virtual desktops on XP/Vista/7/8.1 you name it. No need to use Windows 10 JUST b/c of virtual desktops...

    Yes

    The commercial media industry is undergoing a major transition as content providers move away from proprietary web plug-in based delivery mechanisms (such as Flash or Silverlight), and replace them with unified plug-in free video players that are based on HTML5 specifications and commercial media encoding capabilities. Browsers are moving away from plug-ins as well, as Chrome is with NPAPI and Microsoft Edge is with ActiveX, and toward more secure extension models.

    I know what you are saying...

    I have way more things to do in my life than deal with some new stupid operating system. I can hardly stand it...

    I have many machines running XP and 7 and I really don't have a problem with any of them. W10 is just another way of MS trying to get back some of the MAC defectors.

    Lets face it guys, those that want a MAC will have a MAC. Many of us just want a computer and to be left alone.

    I don't way flashy icons and stuff all over my desktop (unless I put it there)

    I just want Windows 98 / Windows 2000 / Windows XP or Windows 7.

    I want the simplicity of windows with menus. I don't like the new versions of EXCEL either (so you know where I am coming from).

    I like using my keyboard and not reaching for the touch screen or the mouse. (you can't do that any longer)

    So young MAC kids get a job at MS and its downhill from there.

    OK -- I am glad that some day I won't have to really get any work done on my computer. I am soon to retire.

    The only thing I do not like about 10 is that it does not provide tablet experience like 8.1, which is what I miss. If I could go back to 8.1 on my new surface, it would make it a better table experience.
