Windows 7: i hate w10.

There is the Enterprise version of Windows 10 that has a lot more granular control over telemetry, updates Etc. This is sold to business customers under the terms of Multiple licensing, which is only really viable for quantities of hundreds or thousands of seats.

Enterprise is available to non corporate customers only as a part of the MSDN subscription.

There are some options to give more granular control of updates by default in Windows 10 Professional, the options for control of telemetry is the same as the home versions as far as I can see

Hey Barman58,

I was just curious and kind of figured as much. I have as much switched of as allowed and will check regularly after updates to see that they are where I put them as I have noticed that after updates some of them do change. This is a small chore for a free OS.

I'm impressed how fast Windows 10 runs. It appears that Microsoft has optimized it for a performance gain which it seems to have over Windows 7.

Thanks.

Even better than Windows 10 Enterprise is Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB - long term service branch. It's not what it's got, more what it hasn't - no Cortana, no Edge, no tiles, no Store, no Candy Crush, Groove Music, Money, Phone Companion etc (or any other nonsense) - in fact NO APPS ! LTSB doesn't have WMP or WMC, but there's a media pack available at MS for WMP,
I tried it in a VM and it was amazing, straight out of the box, to click the start menu and find it empty ie no placeholders/adverts or any other garbage. Also you only get security updates, with no sudden unexpected version changes + surprise restarts - you can choose when to get these.

Because this is the version of Windows 10 that people actually want, Microsoft have kept it well hidden - even from their business customers.

See snip of LTSB menu (or lack of it).

All I want from an OS is a platform to run my software. I don't want all the bells + whistles razzmatazz.

Sound like Win10 LTSB is a operating system that many would be willing to pay for.

It would be on my list of things to give a try and if I like it; buy it.

It's a shame one can't buy it without a volume licensing.

It does sound pretty cool.
I'm just going to stay with the free upgrade as it works ok.
I'm also a Linux user for my main daily driver although Windows seems to do work better for certain media HTPC TV cards that I'm using.
Linux and Windows on different desktops gives me the best of both OS worlds.

I stopped Windows Update of 10 on my laptop because it's already slow. Telemetry becomes an issue as well especially on those running with HDDs. I have to stop the Telemetry from task manager everytime the drive light is always on and not blinking that much.

But it's a great OS. You just have to stop too many services unfortunately :\

Hi,
10 media creation tool is utterly useless too and as far as I know is the only way to get an iso now to clean install the latest build other than the silly insider builds.

I find the positive merits of UEFI BIOS dubious.

Windows 10 Ultimate is no brainier? What would happen to my Vista Extras that I could use in 7?

Don't like Windows 10 home edition, so the pro edition would be my choice.

w10 sounds like half an English postcode, 971058 sounds more like a zip code.

Hi,
I believe uefi bios is pretty cool
Now a pure uefi install is dubious seeing the most important part of it is bitlocker and most versions can not use it except ultimate and enterprise editions
There is secure boot but for the most part that is just a pain in the ass if you end up with booting issues.... just makes it tougher to get into the bios seems to me.

I've been playing solitaire on my computer since? (well I can't really remember that far back) So when I first loaded Windows 7 (true also with Vista) I found that MS had actually paid some guy to mess it up the look and feel of Solitaire (expletives deleted). It looks really sick and doesn't...
