    Default Thank you Microsoft

    Thank you Microsoft for the Windows 10 April Update! Took ages to install, laptop now boots up even slower and thanks for removing 'homegroup' which was an easy shortcut for me to quickly connect to Linux servers...now I have to map to them and had to go into services settings to get a small degree of functionality back!

    Similar experience here. Had to do a shitload of Googling to find how to mend the settings it had ****ed up.

    Lots of unhappy bunnies out here sharing their woes.

    I use Linux on everything thing else but unfortunately there are some programs which run on windows that I would miss and despite the above it's still easier for samba shares

    Just unbelievable what these so called genius experts can do to us on the back of what is supposed to be an improvement.

    How many times have these updates (more like upsets!) caused instability and proper inconvenience.

    My very new at the time Lenovo All in One PC literally ground to a halt after I reluctantly installed Windows 10, after constant bombardment by Microsoft to do so.

    Was the biggest relief ever when i finally managed to get it off and stay Windows 8.1.

    Regardless and all said and done. The PC went back to running perfectly smooth and hasn't missed a beat in the years since and thats all that matters to me and the household as far as we're concerned.

    I've made a point of sticking with W7. When (if) that eventually becomes unusable I'll go to Linux.

    I moved to Apple several years back. You cant do everything that can be done on a Windows PC, but for what I use a computer for these days I can do everything I need to. Yes they are more expensive but the modern Macs keep current for years, unlike the older ones that tended to become obsolete a bit too quick. Also by the time you find a PC with the same build quality and same performance screen, your not paying too much more anyway IMO.

    I dont like updates because they essentially have a route into my equipment to do whatever the hell they like.

    They have just "updated" the 360 but the main gist of it is to remind us again to buy an xbox one. Ive lost certain picture thumbnails in my online game menu and dotted the menu with information I already know and didnt want to see. It basically adds up to buy an xbox one now because youve taken too long you shirkers.

    I shouldnt have accepted the update but they get round natural suspicion by saying it fixes minor bugs which Ive never noticed and may be just fibs to get other aspects of the change installed

    There is nothing in the update that has benefitted me and its just shut down some of the good feeling about the console because they know that a lot of people are still using them and buying the cheap S/H games.

    I shouldnt have accepted the "update". Its a word associated with positivity but can often be used take backward steps which spoil my experience
