All depends on what you want or require.

I don’t have many issues with 10 and a lot of people seem to prefer it over 7/8 as it is more like the XP Windows.

Though the Classic Start Menu as used on XP isn’t possible it does have a Start Menu and the Tiles/Metro Interface which is great on Touch Screen Devices can also be used Many of my customers seem to prefer the new Start Menu over the Tiles but that’s Personal Preference and while similar to the Classic Start Menu it’s different also.

My biggest issue with 10 is that things like Dual Screen Monitors which work perfectly well in 7 & 8 don’t work under 10 which according to Microsoft is a Developed version of Windows 8. Sort of like something that worked in XP stops working properly in XP SP3 if that makes any sense to you.

On the up side 10 especially the 64 Bit Version can use more than 3.25 GIG of Memory and that figure depends very much on the Hardware involved but no matter what it’s somewhere around that figure and not the 4 Gig claimed by the 32 Bit versions. It’s better at several things but again it’s only any better that something that worked previously under 7 or 8 by being developed so there are not Great Improvements just developments of what was previously possible.

It’s also different to 7/8 and there is a fairly steep learning curve involved and I hear many complaints from customers about Microsoft changing things on different versions of Windows. They complain that they had to learn a different OS when they moved from XP to 7 again moving from 7 to 8 and then again moving from 8 to 10 They rightly or wrongly expect the version of Windows that they first used to be the same as the new version that was installed on their system when they Updated their current version and 10 was downloaded and installed. Sometimes they even complain that 10 was installed even though they Blocked that Update and that’s true enough I’ve seen cases where it has been installed without being wanted.

Overall there are some improvements and some things just break so as to if it’s better that’s a personal preference.
