Next week Aldi will offer a PC with Windows 10. I don't know, if this PC has a Realtek Soundcard, which is necessary for perfect performances, but it has NVDIA and Direct X 12.

Maybe Direct X 12 can handle much better with "A Dive In Music" in Firefox & Chrome. If there is also "Stereomix" on the computer, then a music website can be started in a second tab. On my Workstation PC I have Direct X 11 & Direct X 9, and with "A Dive In Music" I can get a graphic card error, if I am not careful enough.

Hopefully the artist-software will work on Windows 10, after many artists had complained in the past, that their Ableton and Cubase would not work on Windows 8 & Windows 8.1. Of course we want to create good songs and good music-videos also on Windows 10, and we want to make good live-events, where a computer with Windows is needed.

And I hope, the artists can make their uploads also from computers with Windows 10 without suddenly getting trouble from somewhere. About the privacy, we want to keep our eyes open...

I installed 10 on my mum's laptop. She only uses it for browsing – privately hosted webmail, facebook, pinterest, gumtree, not much else – and for some basic MS Office work. I turned all 13 pages of privacy switches to "off" (i.e. do not share), and I'm relatively comfortable with her using IE, the built-in firewall and AV, and auto updates, so yeah.

For our own machines, i.e. mine, ShyShy's and ShyShy Jr's? No fucking way are we installing 10. When I install Windows, I immediately turn off updates and install ZoneAlarm free firewall. There's no chance in hell that I'm going to trust MS with unavoidable auto updates. We'll stick with 7 for the foreseeable future.

Hows it going for those who have upgraded?

Things seem to be a lot better since the last major build update. Winamp & RadioDJ are working brilliantly side by side.

Not experiencing as many freezes crashes. Only problem I do appear to be having is trying to remote onto the PC from another computer in the flat. it's broken Tightvnc again.

Had a couple of issues with power management and touch pad, but don't know if that's Win 10 or if Lenovo's drivers need updating.

It obviously still has work to be done yet, but I'm liking it.

Probably the most painless upgrade of Windows I've ever had. I chose to upgrade over Windows 7. The only issue I had was bluetooth not working right but I think that's due to my Ideapad having a shit bluetooth device. I can only get like five feet away before it starts cutting out. With my Moto X (2nd gen) I can get 30+ feet away and have no issues.

It's getting really painful using Windows 10 at the moment.

It seems to have a nasty habit of maxing out the memory and causes programs like Chrome to throw their dummy out. Happened Twice this past week.

Requiring a manual shutdown by the power button.

Last time I had a computer do stuff like that was XP before the SP1.

Windows 10 - Want new Winamp!

Does anyone know about a new Winamp being made? I love winamp as my main MP3 player as it can play all my old mod files, mp3, read cue sheets etc but have had it crash with certain plugins under Windows 10 and not 8.
I have upgraded now and have to run with certain plugins as it will crash, before I could install all of the ones I wanted and no problems.
I have version 5.7 build 3392 (beta) x86 as this seems to work with all plugins I have.
The website just states coming soon but has said this for months.
Hope a new version is being developed. It is the best player and I love it.

I think I remember that the idea was to have a new version by the end of the year.

Post #1188 on 9-27-2015 by DJ EGG in the Winamp News thread.

" Hey, I was going to post that

So, as already mentioned, the plan is to make Winamp 100% freeware again,
which means replacing all 3rd-party/aol-licensed code with open source/free alternatives....

So we've started with core features such as:
- mp3 & aac decoders (more details to come later)
- removing ms drm support from in_wm (wow, heh)
- cd ripping
- albumart retrieval
- OpenH264 decoder

Maybe a few other surprises such as a new OpenMPT-based in_mod, and a wasapi output plugin...

I've also got a 5.666->5.8 changelog.txt file already with over 100 lines,
so expect a whole heap of new features, improvements, tweaks, optimizations & fixes....

There's still a load of work to be done though....
e.g. CD burning - and Gracenote replacement (CDDB, Autotag, PlaylistGenerator) being the big one,
and plenty more (further news to follow later).

Alas, it's still some time away before we can provide a public beta build...
but I can assure you all, we're working on it, and it will come eventually :-) "

That's great news to hear Winamp has not been abandoned. I was really worried that such a great player would not have any further updates.
I really look forward to downloading it when it's available. Hopefully better than ever!
I check back here quite often so I look forward to it when it will be available for download. :-)

Something strange going with Windows 10 after the latest batch of updates.

It's now not recognising our external hard drive. The drive hasn't failed it's less than 12 months old. It's annoying the hell out of us.

Microsoft Says Windows 10 Will Be the Last OS Upgrade You'll Ever Need

NEWS ANALYSIS: Once the next version of Windows is installed, Microsoft plans to begin a process of continuous updates that will eliminate the concept of next versions.

There's no question that Microsoft has learned from the pain of getting customers to upgrade from Windows XP and later from Windows 7 to 8. From now on, it never wants to be in the position of having to convince people to buy the next version of Windows.

http://www.eweek.com/pc-hardware/mic...ever-need.html

http://www.techtimes.com/articles/51...ts-last-os.htm

There has been nothing new or groundbreaking about about any Windows OS since windows 95.

You got your desktop and you got folders and files.

If you're a windows user you will run windows 10 eventuality.

Upgrading now. Doing a clean install.


MAC
WINDOWS
linux

Who cares?

It's not what OS you got. It's what you do with your computer.

I like making and editing videos.










Have a nice upgrade!

For older hardware that isn't supported by the manufacturer anymore, Linux is definitely the better choice.

Oh no, that does not sound very good...

We need the working video cards and the working sound cards on the Windows Computers for the future live events in the event halls, where also video-projectors are used. There is so much potential for the perfect live performances...

I still haven't seen a must-have feature of Windows 10, at least none that I don't already have in 7. I don't want to lose some things such as XP mode, Media Center with the TV card, gadgets, and the 3D GUI. I hate solid colors without any 3D look; it's just hard on the eyes. We live in a 3D world, and it gives me a headache to see what has become of Microsoft programs. I even had to roll back MS Office because I don't have a way of skinning the new version to make it darker and 3D. I just can't work with that 2D solid color shit. The start menu is still plagued with the cancer-tumor looking tiles that do nothing for productivity, while still not having the list of stuff I use most often on the right side of 7's start menu. No pinning of frequently used programs on the left... Why must we regress instead of moving forward?

It's a shitload of privacy invading data-collection and bombardment of advertisements and offers trying to bleed the user of money. No more ownership, just subscriptions, cloud storage, and recurring expenses. Microsoft has discovered that you get more blood by bleeding slowly than just killing and getting a one time spill. When it comes to collecting more and more data to target you as a buyer in more and more ways, Microsoft used to bash Google publicly with lots of videos and satire skits for what Microsoft itself is now doing. Fucking hypocrites. Want what used to be included as instant working software? Download it separately, sit through a long annoying advertisement first at each launch, then wait for an aggravating splash screen. By the time you're ready to use the program, you've already damaged your computer with a temper tantrum.

I'm also very angry at Microsoft for deciding to install a damn-hard-to-remove nag program designed to promote Windows 10. You have to go into the registry to get rid of it, and eventually it comes back anyway. To me that is incredibly low, and yet it seems to be working for the vast majority of eligible users. I don't know who to be more mad at. Microsoft for doing it, or users for rewarding it.

There is so much more too that would make this post far too long.

Long story short, I just don't like it, and 7 works for me. This whole 10 thing is just wrong and unethical on too many levels.

Again,

I'm still on the fence about Windows 10. Does this article (http://www.zdnet.com/article/dont-le...tag=TREc64629f) provide valid points or is it just propaganda?

Especially this statement, "In my experience most of the problems that people have with Windows 10 come down to upgrading systems that were already suffering from complications.".

I remember Magilla (Pabook) informing the 'munity about how OSX straight-up loses your data if and when any cut-and-paste processes (i.e. moving files) go awry for whatever reason. I'm not sure if the Mac OS still does that.

I read another scary article about Windows 10 today. Google started this commercial data mining mess and there's no turning back now.

"When you install Windows 10 on a new PC or upgrade an existing version of Windows to the new operating system, you get the option to customize select preferences or use the defaults instead.

If you select to customize, you get the option to disable three pages full of features related to privacy.

While that is a good start at limiting Windows 10's hunger for data, it is nowhere near sufficient to keep the operating system from talking with Microsoft servers regularly.

A user on Voat analyzed the network traffic of Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system using a DD-WRT router and a Linux Mint laptop with remote logging and Windows 10 Enterprise installed on Virtualbox recently.

He turned off all privacy-related features during custom installation, and let the computer sit idle for eight hours straight afterwards logging network traffic.

In the eight hours Windows 10 made 5508 connection attempts."

Link to the complete article (http://www.ghacks.net/2016/02/08/win...acy-hardening/).

If the OS makes this many attempts to 'phone home' when there is nothing new to report, what will it do when the computer is actually being used to do stuff? There are 3rd party apps (1 is mentioned in the article) that can help reduce the frequency that the OS calls 'home' and to other servers. I foresee a huge market for these apps (or huge purchases of telco unlimited data plans), if Microsoft can get close to it's target number of users. If the current rate of adoption remains steady, Microsoft will reach it's target in about 3 years. I expect Microsoft will extend the free upgrade period or reduce the price for Windows 10 this summer.

Only three pages? I waded through a full 13 pages on my mum's computer. Maybe the other 10 pages are available only after the installation is complete, i.e. by going back through the control panel (or whatever it's called in 10).

There are 3 pages in the installer, plus the options in the control panel, plus others that are only available through registry and management console (or sc.exe). For added fun, any of them may get reset after a Windows update.

It's funny how people always bring up having to use the terminal, or to edit config files in Linux. I spent far more time in Windows regedit.

After the support for XP had ended in 2014, the support for Vista will end in 2017 and for Win7 in 2020.

I think, the artists want to stay on Win7 as long as they can, because they had problems with Windows 8 / 8.1 in the past.

I remember, that somebody got very angry, because many expensive software was not compatible with Windows Versions after XP anymore. I myself have experienced that 2 days ago, when I wanted to install the driver for the Lexmark Printer on Vista. It was not possible, and today I had to print the letter in the meeting-point. With XP the printer had worked, but also the second XP computer had died in 2015.

With Windows 10 I want to wait, until also Win7 will not be supported anymore. I just hope, that I can run the Desktop Wallpaper Slideshow also on Windows 10, which works already since Win7, together with Winamp, all the plugins & skins and the Milkdrop Visualizer...
