Everybody had drivers ready to go except creative Labs (of course - when do they ever update anything on time). The sound still works with the built-in drivers though so whatever.

I ran Edge once, saw that it had no adblock available and dumped it.

The new calculator app sucks.

So far no problems running anything. It took about an hour to set up the new start menu the way I wanted it. I unpinned all the crap they give you and then pinned all the thing I use in nice categories. This setup lets me have a clean desktop.

The new virtual desktops are nice. Flat interface is growing on me.

MS still has a dumb UI consistency in that they want the preferences setup menu to not just be part of the regular control panel.

I turned all the questionable privacy invading stuff off, including Cortana (which I'll never use). I think 99% of the stuff I turned off is for people who like tablets and/or have only ever used tablets. I guess there will be a lot of those people going forward.

Oh I don't think so either. It's just not out of the ordinary, which is probably why MS figured they'd get away with it.

It's funny - my housemate just built a new machine. First thing he did after installing Windows 7 was open up Internet Explorer to download Firefox. Then he removed the IE icon saying "And that's the last time I'll be using that."

this is normal

if you are using IE, you are either stupid or a senior citizen

Ayup. If I ever run IE more than once on a new build/install, something has gone horribly, horribly wrong, to the point where Firefox and Chrome are both completely hosed.

That's standard operating procedure for just about anyone building a computer that's not doing it in a corporate environment... and even then sometimes

It only resets your default browser if you choose Express Settings. Definitely choose Customize otherwise a lot of your personal information will get sent to Microsoft.

If anyone has a blurry device manager in Windows 10 set your screen back to 100% instead of 125%.

There's a visual glitch that makes a few windows like device manager look weird if you use 125% scaling for your desktop.

The option is under "customize your display". Make sure it's 100 for now. I'm sure there'll be a fix later.

Other than that I haven't noticed any trouble with Windows 10 (and yeah it does try to make Edge the default if you do "express install").

I never do express install for anything. My mouse automatically migrates to custom.

Heh, that's small potatoes compared to what they'd do a decade ago.

A decade ago it'd have uninstalled Firefox, Chrome and set your HOSTS file to redirect mozilla.org to microsoft.com.

Windows 10 resets everything on a upgrade, Windows 8 did too, and Windows 7, and Vista, and XP. Then again the shit that mozilla has been doing, the browser being reset is the least of their worries. Maybe less listening to art majors, and removing more bloatware would be a good plan.
