Me & Windows 10

I've been using open source for most of my professional career & recently I've switched to Windows 10 to quell my curiosity.  I've been known to openly shit on closed proprietary software & those opinions haven't changed much.  My preference is Linux but these days I find my self hacking on OSX due to my current gig's work load & the nature of my current projects.

I just purchased a "new" used Dell laptop & decided to throw Windows 10 on it & give it a try.  I've been using it exclusively for about 2 weeks now and have to say that I like it so far.

It def has a much better feel regarding UX  than Windows 8 & I find myself not really bothered by annoying things I experienced in prev versions of the OS.

Having said this I've had to hack the shit out of Windows 10 in order to get it to a usable state where I can function in my normal day to day capacity.

Some of the things that I did to make using Windows 10 bearable were:
Overall Windows 10 is better than it's predecessors but really is still a non open sourced OS and that is still a HUGE problem for me.  Even if Microsoft gave it to me for free I still have issues with it being closed & proprietary.

 As for using it as a day to day OS it is usable but it still is Windows & not Linux which is where I'm most comfortable. So YMMV when using Windows 10 but it functions just fine for the moment.


  1. hey dude, you're right the win10 team did a great job with this new release,is fluent and confortable, I was using this for technical review even with some bugs it was amazing, now I've switched to OSX but I miss the win10 interface. the tortoise to admin git is pretty awesome I recommend you this tool.
