Sounds like your alittle unlucky. All my updates have not caused any problems for me and 10 has been the best one. Honesty its a superior OS to 8 and 7 and with DX12 being 10 exclusive, it boosts your PCs preformance without even upgrading it. The OS also uses less resounces which means better preformance off the bat.
Win10 will get updates like any other OS. Little problems you get will be fixed over time.
Again free upgrade, and a better OS. No loss.
TONS of people are a "little unlucky." W10 has been a disaster on my quad core AMD.
Windows 10 is an upgrade in some regards, a side-grade in most regards, and a downgrade in several key areas. Before anyone moves to W10, they should read up on the subject and decide what is important to them. It's certainly not a situation where W10 is the best solution across the board.
Some of the things I DON'T like about W10:
- You have no control over updates. A few days ago, W10 was downloading a GPU driver I had already installed and it was using ALL my bandwidth. I couldn't turn it off, I couldn't stop it, and I couldn't connect to ANY webpages (I specifically came to check for an email response from a professor). That's ridiculous. It also comes preset to restart whenever it wants but, thankfully, you can turn that off--kind of.
- W10 is basically spyware. Same difference, really. You can turn a lot of that off but not all of it.
- Two control panels with different settings is stupid.
- If you have metered bandwidth and an ethernet connected PC, you might be out of luck. W10 uses your bandwidth when and how it wants. You might only be able to change this with a wireless connection, depending on your service method.
- It doesn't work well with some older hardware and software, if at all. Drivers have to be updated. If they aren't then you're screwed.
- Customization has gone backwards in a lot of areas. Many people hate tiles but Microsoft REMOVED features from the W10 beta that would have let you change your Start Menu to be more like W7.
- W10 will install apps (or whatever it wants) without asking.
Those are of the things I've noticed or looked into myself. It's not all rainbows and kittens. That being said, I will probably stay with W10 because the file structure is improved (it can get muddled with an upgrade from W7, as you'll have leftover elements) and the boot is quicker (on new hardware--old hardware, you might have to turn off Microsoft's Fast Start solution or it will crash your PC).
