Windows 10 Comments

I want to be a fan for Win10 (after 8.1, I really needed the upgrade) but I can't overlook the things which are bugging me. It is a very heavy OS and makes me computer slow down a bit, and tries to take decisions for me. Automatic updates are a pain and the fact that the apps cannot be placed in the main screen is a little ridiculous (calendar and weather used to be on my desktop, would like that possibility to return). Don't even get me started on the lack of privacy this OS has...
