After testing and using Windows 10 for 3 weeks, I can say on a serious note that Windows 10 isn’t for everyone.
I’ll be sharing some reasons why you shouldn’t be using Windows 10 right now. As a tech geek, I can understand the excitement in you for upcoming OS from the Redmond.
No doubt, it is the best looking Windows as for now but still, you should give it a pass for the moment at least. I’m not saying that to stop you from getting an all new experience.
Windows 10 isn’t good (for the moment)
Trust me, I don’t have that bad intention. Okay, then, let’s start with the reasons now.
PS – I’m writing this guide in the month of April when Windows 10 is available in Technical Preview and not in the standard version. I’m clearing this for future readers, just to save them from misunderstanding.
#1 It is slow
As Microsoft is testing the OS with all the users around the world who willingly participated in Windows Insider Preview Program, it works pretty slow, comparatively.
During my testing, my PC was earlier working on Windows 7, which was working at a decent pace but from the moment I started using this OS in beta, performance shifted drastically.
So, unless you’re ready to wait for hours, allowing the OS to bring fresh updates, install and fix bugs and performance issues, you shouldn’t be using Windows 10 right now.
It may be very annoying! But, of course, it depends on your commitment.
#2 Something went wrong
This kind of message is very common for the moment. I encountered it many times on a first couple of days of my usage but since then, fresh updates are coming and fixing things.
But it still manage to appear.
Message’s most favorite place is the new search tool which is integrated right within the Task Bar.
Not to forget, Cortana (Digital Assistant) is also there to help you search and look for information through voice inputs.
Search and Cortana, together, are definitely going to be most amazing features of the OS, but for the moment, they are always crashing.
So, you may hurt your initial experience which can give a rise to hate.
#3 It’s not in standard form
After reading above two points, it is already clear to you that the OS isn’t in standard form, because of its availability in beta version.
But apart from those two issues as I added above, using the OS isn’t secure.
I’ve been keeping an eye on incoming updates and as I found, most of them were Security Updates, trying to fix loopholes and vulnerabilities left.
Unless you have a secondary PC, just like me, and want to just test how a Technical Preview sounds, you shouldn’t be using Windows 10 at all.
I’ll share whole Windows 10 review when it comes out publicly for everyone and in first stable form. Stay tuned!
