After using Windows 10 in the work place for almost a year now, here's my take on the experience. To begin with I thought that the promises from Microsoft, on this being a good fast new system, might be right this time. So I was considering using this instead of Ubuntu if it proved to be as good as it was hyped to be. But I was to be disappointed.
So the answer is stick to Ubuntu, I have to say my Windows 10 experience have gone through some classical phases:
- Great! It starts up fast and seems to be fast in the day-to-day work
- Great! It shuts down fast
- Oh no! I wast just forced to do an update, and have to wait...
- Oh no! Now it starts booting slow again...
- Oh no! Performance and user experience degrades continuously over time
- Aaand! the fonts look like crap due to bad anti aliasing on some screens!
The system is not better and the tile interface, does not help to give a better experience either, so I have to repeat that I am not looking back!
The shift to Ubuntu on the home front has proven to be the right decision for me.
In fact the more I learn to use Linux the better I like it, recently I got Android Studio running and tried out Flutter/Dart for cross platform development as easy as if it had been on any other platform...
