Can't wait for the dark theme. 

 

The update looks great!

 

It sucks that people hate change though. I didn't know free upgrades were a bad thing.

 

 

Change isn't always good. In W10's case some things were good, others not so much.

 

Also it being free doesn't mean that it should be able to spy on you if you don't want it to.

just installed the update. i am happy with it but i just would wish that we had the ability to switch the time/date and notification center from place so that the time is on the far right and not the notification center because now if i want to look at the time a look automatically at the notification center because that know occupies the place that the time/date used to be at

FYI:

 

Running the BASH installer with lxrun /install /y didn't work, the download from the microsoft store stopped at 56%. If this happens, run bash from cmd normally and it will download and install normally.

 

It mounts your hard-drives in /mnt/$driveLetter/ (so for example /mnt/c/ )

 

I haven't tried it, but I'm guessing you probably need to be careful with the rm -rf command.

Like the upgrade to windows 10, this update is going to be another 5 hour plus affair thanks to crappy laptop hard drives (thankfully, I have a computer that doesn't have to go through this indignity since it didn't qualify for an upgrade since it didn't have a supported OS) and once again I had to go through the mess that is avast and windows defender stepping on each others toes until everything had settled down enough that I could do a reboot so that windows could take the hint that I already had protection and didn't need theirs messing things, and steam didn't want to connect but that was only because the site was down (I should probably get an SSD for this thing when I get the money and the ability to get rid of the stripped screw that is stopping me from getting into the laptops convenience cover where the RAM and hard drive are located).

 

The jury is still out regarding windows 10 considering the issues I've been having, so if it continues to ram one end of itself up the other and continue to lock up even after a reinstall, then the original windows 7 recovery DVDs I made an age ago will be making an appearance and the laptop will be going back to windows 7 home edition from windows 10 pro (and before anyone asks, I took the windows 8 upgrade which upped it to pro and everything after that was pro as well).

It took nearly 2 hours to download and install on my system, and my system drive isn't exactly a slouch :/

Try doing that on an AMD Athlon II x2 P320 with only 2GB RAM and a 250GB crappy 5400RPM laptop hard drive.

 

Heck, my fathers desktop could probably chug through it in around an hour, and that is using older hardware (not to mention a 10kRPM hard drive) and it got through the upgrade to windows 10 in around 2 hours and had to be rebooted only because of the graphics card driver (it only depends on windows defender, so there weren't any conflicts in the protection area).

 

I'll probably be doing that later on (and I'll be keeping an eye on the clock as well).

So far no issues whatsoever, I had to update my gpu drivers(they were old anyways). Nothing else.

I actually know people who run "Golden Image" VMs whenever they buy things online... they start up the VM from a standard "golden" image, make their online purchase, then destroy the VM. There are some seriously paranoid people in the world!

That's eerily strange.

I agree. It seems like people think of the information gathering as someone watching you walk around naked in your home through the window.

Or that MS is going to hand your ass over to the police for downloading something illegal. Either way it's kinda sad.

It's not really a joke. I mean it's not actually spying on you, but it does collect more data than most would like an OS for desktops and laptops to collect. Ubuntu used to do some similar stuff, but it seems like Canonical stopped doing that.

I doubt any of the extra data is more than everything else they've taken before. You've probably handed your ass over to some other company and didn't realize it when you signed up as well. Facebook being a prime example.

Should I force update my SP4 or should I just wait for the update to appear normally in the Windows Update?

Upgraded my systems/notebooks no issues, except for a compatibility issue with DAEMON Tools, but I uninstalled that.

Even updated my wife's AIO and no issues there.

People still uses Daemon tools? I thought it stops as Windows can mount ISOs. I guess for old old games with disk DRM...

So I just downloaded and upgraded my windows 10 to the latest anniversary update. After the update, I tried opening my most used games and I noticed a significant lag on CSGO, turned on net graph and it seems to be showing that it's getting capped at 30fps. Last night I was playing CS:GO and is getting well above 250 fps.

 

I've searched about it and read that I should disable "Game DVR" in the Xbox app. Haven't tried this yet, but I would like to know some other work around for this issue, just in case disabling game DVR doesn't work. 

 

Oh, and I also opened dota2 but It seems to be smooth, at least on the main menu. Haven't tried playing in the new update though. 

 

Will try disabling game DVR first when I get home.

It could be that you have the always record Game DVR  option enabled. You can disable that

Got it running on my desktop, so far so good.

I don't get the purpose of the "expand" function in the start menu. Is there suppose to be like some most use programs or just empty space?

I like how you can now for Windows update, set active hours so it won't automatically restart.

 

For my laptop, that missing 3GB reappeared after running a repair install. And the update continue to download from where it left off. It tried to install, but it failed.

Might need to do a clean install, something I would like to avoid. Going to try other methods to get it working.

Ah! The "Expand" is for your Recently Added apps list. You have that because you have too many to display. The point is to avoid displaying a massive list.

When I updated last night I noticed a few strange things like my monitor overclock being stuck back at 60hz as well as my digital vibrance being reset back to default. The other thing is the Windows.old won't allow me to delete it due to permissions and doesn't appear in disk clean up. Aside from that everything seems pretty normal. My CSGO is running just fine like before I know the guy a few posts up mentioned his was capped at 30fps.

 

And am I losing my mind but after I updated, my Chrome updated too I believe; is the blue highlight color on the address bar darker now?

Its seems the new update screws over people using windows 10. By not allowing to disable the lock screen, preventing microsoft ads and having microsoft download apps to your computer like candy crush.

Looks like Windows 10 is starting to get more fishy and fishy. Who knows if they'll install something else to monitor people or hell what if a hacker manages to exploit that and upload malware to a user's computer without knowledge?

Windows 10 always had "ad apps" (I'll call it that) like Candy Crush. They are not really installed. they only install if you click on them. You just unpin them. They are more like links. These ad apps depends on your location or Windows region.

 

Windows Spotlight, if enable (the feature that show you different lock screen backgrounds each day based on feedback you give on the lock screen), will showcase a Windows Store app every now and then. These ads in particular pays for the license fees of these background, and push people to discover the store. I know some people got some, I never did (I do use the Store.. so maybe that is why I don't see them, or no company is paying Microsoft for ads for Canadians due to small number).

 

Both of these things were announced by Microsoft at the BUILD event before Windows 10 was released, and covered here in the news section.
