    • Linux Mint overloads the hardware, especially with older devices, not like Windows 10, and above all you don't have a constant 100% disk load. And even all the other surprises of Windows 10, such as logging in with a temporary profile, you don't have under Linux Mint. The biggest advantage of Linux Mint (and other Linux distributions) is the fact that you can install updates without rebooting. Even when you replace the core.

Better than 8.1, yet still needs work.

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...


Still not Moving to 8 or 10...

I like the UI of Windows 7. Windows 8 and 10 use Metro UI, which looks quite boring.

Really stable and looks more polished than OSX (long-time OSX user that got fed up with Apple killing their desktop environment)
