Everyone is having this problem. You would think they'd have it fixed by now.

Y'all crazy. I have 2 machines running Windows 10 x64 (clean installs). Works fine. Faster than Win7.

I have 3 machines running win10. The x64 win 10 pro on my desktop gaming machine runs beautifully. Well, the built in audio drivers suck ***.
But the two laptops running it have the start button issue. But I believe those are x86 win 10 home versions. Which I can't see making a difference. Maybe it's a laptop thing.

I like win10 on an SSD. It's blazingly fast.

My laptop with ssd booted and shut down faster with Win7. For instance, yesterday Win10 took about a minute to load after entering my password. I thought the computer froze. I dread the day that I will have to do a clean install of Win10. I know that day will come. I just hope it isn't soon. Also, edge seems to be slow as hell compared to chrome.

The inconsistency of issues confuses me more than these issues in general do...

I've been debating whether to take the time to do a full backup on my old i5 machine (presently running 7 pro 64) and give Win10 a try.

I'm not in any way dissatisfied with the performance of the machine. I bumped the RAM to 16GB last week, and it's been running great since.

Boot times are of zero importance to me. I sleep the machine at night, and only reboot it once every few months. And I *REALLY* loathe the tile interface. On all of my 7 machines, I run ClassicShell to re-shape the Start Menu and the Explorer windows back to something approximating the WinXP style. Fewer mouse clicks to locate and run applications.

In what universe has the stock browser in any distribution of Windows not been slower than damn near any third-party alternative?

As I see it, DirectX is the only reason why I'd goto Win10 from my Win7 Pro x64

I don't have a crazy build but it gets me by. Maybe later on down the road I'll hop on 10 when I build a new gaming system.

I recently lost my SATA 1 port on my motherboard.
AM4 socket type can not come fast enough.

After having AMDs, I think I may go with Intel the next time around

All of my PCs have been AMD thus far...

I miss my original 1Ghz thunderbird, many hours of gaming in my teens. Handled UT2k3 like a champ

I went through a brief AMD period in the mid to late 90s, when I was poor and AMD was doing nothing but building knockoffs of Intel processors at half the cost, or coming up with designs that let you put a newer core into an older socket.

But then they started innovating, coming up with their own microarchitectures... And the benchmarks they turned out were great, so long as you weren't too concerned with stability or compatibility.

These days, they've gotten most of that stuff fixed, but I just don't see the point anymore. On a price / performance basis, they're not really any cheaper than Intel, so why bother?

I have been using Intel CPU's for the past 6/7 years. The biggest reason is one of my good friends works for Intel so I get the processors for dirt cheap. Generally less then 50% of retail.
