RE: Windows 10 Launch - Anybody Using It Yet?

Two weeks in and I am happy to report that Windows 10 is even worse than Vista was. An absolute buggy piece of garbage that I hope few others get stuck with. They say it is possible to revert but even that freezes my computer. Tech Support? Right, try to reach them.

Windows 10 is junk.

JL Johnson went a bit far calling it an "iconic piece of avision history". Unique, it was, but not at all important and in my opinion, the worst TWA paint scheme ever.
