    Windows 10, Yea or Nay?

    Keep on getting this pop-up asking me to convert to Windows 10. I'm a little reluctant because if it ain't broke don't fix it. ...well I don't follow that advice when it comes to my bikes. I'm always interested in tweaks and mods.

    What say ye?

    I upgraded to Windows 10 and have had no problems whatsoever. Works flawless. By the way this is my first post on the forum.

    First, I get these pop-ups as well, and haven't taken the bait. I'm probably the most illiterate on the computer around, so fear over rules decision making. I'm fine with whichever windows system I'm running now.


    And welcome to the world of misfits. Do you have a TW? Mostly dirt riding? Hope it's an '87, cause they are the fastest, as LT will verify.

    I'm glad you asked this. I had the same question last night and would love the avice of those in the know. Ignoring the improvements are there any negatives about upgrading? Jtom, I do know enough to know that you should go directly to Microsofts website if you are going to upgrade. Dont use the link!

    Unfortunately I spent my first thirty years only worried about women, fishing and hunting. Because of this I now know absolutely dick about computers!

    Well . . . I had pre-registered and was told middle of October I could install windows 10. I run a multi screen, dual video card setup. I had read that people were having issues with Windows 10 being a bear to setup with multiple screens &/or video cards. I'm now among those people. Maybe five minutes into the install - after I realized which video card it liked - I rolled back to my Windows 7 Pro.

    Never fear - computer geek is here!

    I've hemmed and hawed for twenty plus years, but have always been boxed in by my professional environment. However, on my hot little thumb drive is every thing I need to go Linux Mint. Microsoft, you can go kiss my a**!

    Keeping in mind that the only mastery of computers I have is the ability to find any genre of pornography quickly, I will say that I have been burned by thinking that I was clicking on legitimate links like Microsoft's only to find out I was also downloading malware.
