Wait, Windows Media Player still exists? Wasn't it removed from Windows years ago due to some lawsuit? I haven't seen it for a while, because even if I reinstall windows, I just install CCCP instantly.

Nuh.. Windows 7 is like "reboot now, in 5 minutes, 1 hour, or 4 hours?" every 4 hours.. and then it pops up while you're typing something, and you press some key, and boom instant restart.

What he said. Unless there is a manual restart option then I can't upgrade.

If you minimize it rather than choosing one of the options then it doesn't bother you. You can also shut off the windows update service to make it go away. I've gotten to the point where I only update when I'm about to shut down for some reason, which doesn't happen very often.

I still wish they didn't disable this options for many or rather most users...(talking about forcing updates)......i hope they do change their mind or, at least rework what exactly they mean as "update".

Oh yeah, I've heard stories of that. People who've had windows update install driver updates on their PC. And the drivers were bad, so people manually uninstalled the drivers windows had installed, and installed a different version. The result being that windows update simply reinstalled the driver that it thought was correct the next time it checked for updates. That's just stupid...

Hm, that's at least something, but can you tell if this is for all versions of Win10, cause i'm hearing that those who can home edition or such, will not be able to delay some of these things.

And also, what is the drivers status? Is it correct, that you can't instal drivers manually, without Win reinstalling new ones again?

No I can downgrade my drivers if I have problems with them.. I know that during the beta of Win10 they decided to install a bunch of Nvidia beta drivers because they needed to be tested but I'm sure they won't do that in RTM

In Windows 7 and 8, you can install the latest version of drivers optionally.

Same in Win10 because during the beta every update was forced, with RTM now you can choose

Tnx.

Hm, i was hearing people doing the downgrade (iirc, gpu drivers), but it was reported that win10 would just reinstall back new drivers. That's kinda big deal for me, as i did have lots of problems with drivers and certain apps, sometimes, i'd have to install not just old drivers, but very specific version even. Hm, tnx, guess i'll look a bit more into it.

Default Re: Windows 10 Is free? Get hype?... Maybe?

I'm hearing talk of there being a "game bar" feature in Windows 10 which gives universal game recording / screenshotting access...with encoding options on the go apparently. That sounds really good, if it's anyhow decent that'd mean there'd be no need to keep Fraps or anything else running anymore, could record at any moment if I wanted to.

Anyone tried it out? Article here about it.

This is how you win me over to your OS, add some actually useful native gaming features.

Yes, it's really cool and actually works very well, was surprised to see it when they put it in one of the preview builds

whenever I feel like opening the terminal and typing sudo pacman -Syyu

which is almost never. I don't often need to anyways.

Those of you concerned with privacy and using / about to use Win10 might want to give this a read. Probably not as useful for power users who manually edit settings any ways but still good to be aware of it at least.

Oh look it's that old thing about the Win 10 technical preview that everyone is confusing with the RTM license.. ffs people, 50% of all that crap is cut after the preview ended (preview users were presented with a new license to accept back when we got the RTM update a week or 2 ago)

Typical /g/ pic, don't take it too seriously - if you don't select "Default settings" in the setup thingy the first time you boot and you turn off all the things (just like in Win8) then you're fine..

Win10 has more tracking and spying devices than a North Korean military complex, that alone I'd say is a decent argument to stick with 7 for now, there's no need to hurry, the deal is up until late July 2016 and you get to watch it being gradually improved by MS from a safe distance.
