Windows 7: Microsoft silently preparing your PC for Win 10

07 Apr 2015   #21

Windows 10 x64

In the referenced video trailer for Win 10, they show a news article about a home for sale in Scotland.

The architect is one you'd not expect to be called out in a Microsoft presentation.

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit/Windows 8 64-bit/Win7 Pro64-bit

Hmm, oddly it seems to be installed even though I didn't tell it too 4 days ago... Well uninstalled. Also found Compatibility update for Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 for Win 8 to be interesting.

Windows 7 Home Premium X64 SP1

Thanks - now uninstalled. I play around with W10 every night but I'm always glad to get back to W7.
It's not as though there's any big changes - nothing to make me want 10.
Don't like the Start Menu - Tiles - AppStore - Settings. Don't need Cortana - Bing - Spartan.
All added bells and whistles I can do without.

We'll have to see how much better the RTM is compared to 7 or 8.1. Right now I see nothing, absolutely nothing in 10 that I need. It is slower than 8.1 - for booting it takes more than twice the time. For a beta with little function that is a LOT.
