The Case Against Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Recommended Posts

1) yeah it deletes unknown partitions aka dual boot, so if you dual boot you need to set up your partitions again and save your data before doing so

 

2) 99% of the issues with the update is from lazy people who upgraded to windows 10 instead of doing the clean install the proper way.

And now their half screwed up OS is having issues updating.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

My laptop got forced onto anniversary update, so far its been ok except everything defaulted back to the way MS wants it. I deferred the updates on my surface and desktop (cant afford the time to fix issues that arise on this machine). I need to set up group policies on the dekstop to try and prevent the update from getting pushed until theres a stable build.

Not every one knows how to do a clean install. Thats just a fact. Even though its easy as hell to do.

Not everyone knows how to to do 1+1=2.

But there's this thing called education which can teach people how to do it.

 That only works if the people want to learn and are not a special kind of special. Most people are lazy bastards who want to easy solution. Which is the in place upgrade. Dont get me wrong, I agree with you. Im 0 for 3 on in place upgrades. None of them worked. But the average person is a moron, you have to take that in to account. She we all are part of the nerd class, we love to learn new things and play with tech. Not every one is like us.

And this is why so many people upgraded from 7 or 8.1 to 10 and then only complained about issues.

Most people have their vehicle oil changed by a service station, but doing it oneself is also as simple as anything. Not everyone has spare time to look into and do everything. And important software shouldn't be just pushed through fickle and buggy processes.

I think most issues stem from people using registry "cleaners" a.k.a. registry destroyers or cleaner apps that clean files that might be important when upgrading to a new version. I haven't had any issues on any devices, including ones that I did registry edits and set up group policies on. Also one that is dual booted with Puppy Linux, both partitions are still a thing.

 

I'm not a 100 percent sure that you can solely blame this on the users, but I still feel like that is what's going on.

Registery cleaners just delete unused registery values as a smaller registery runs faster, but thats really non issue these days.
