For Windows 10, if you do not want to install driver updates, type in "View Advanced System Settings" into the start menu, click on the "Hardware" tab, click on the "Device Installation Settings" button, read the text on the windows that pops up, and you can select "No, let me choose what to do," then "Never install driver software from Windows Update." Click "Save Changes." You might want to restart for good measure.
That's awesome news!!! :respect:

EDIT: D'oh! I jut saw Ford's update on that.

A great alternate OS would be Linux Mint. It is very user friendly and works with a lot of hardware straight out of the box.

Once you feel comfortable with Linux Mint I recommend that you move on to Arch Linux. Honestly, Arch Linux's package manager is amazing, quite simply.

I second that, where I live the ISPs are the worst, and pacman (arch package manager) works always.
Besides, you only install it once, is up to date all the time, thanks to being a rolling release OS. Too bad it's a little hard to install and configure.

Pacman is just overall quite awesome--the same with the user repository tool. Installing programs are not nearly as cumbersome as they are in Linux Mint. For example, instead of typing in sudo apt-add-repository ppa:example.com, it would be simply typing in yaourt exampleprogram... and a list of items that match your query will come up and ask you to input the number (or numbers) of the program(s) you want to install.

Also, yeah, Arch Linux is a little difficult to configure and install.. however I found an absolutely FANTASTIC set of installation videos for Arch Linux for anybody who is finding the task of installing Arch Linux to be a little daunting. I actually followed his tutorials to install it and, I must say, I learned a ton from it.

If anybody is interested in installing Arch Linux I highly recommend searching for Antoun Sawires Arch Linux on YouTube.

The main reason I chose to use Arch Linux is, quite simply, that I enjoy knowing that I installed this from the ground up. I chose which packages I wanted to install--there is no bloatware or unnecessary packages installed because I did not want them to be.

Running Fedora on the laptop in sig, and I sorta like it, apart from your usual Linux annoyances: no suspend on closing the lid, can't install Gnome Tweak Tools for some reason (which has those settings, and I think it is actually installed but it lacks some dependencies) and wifi is so terribly slow. Insert the usual Year of the Linux Desktop jokes.

I got a girl using Windows 8.1 Pro on a pc i build for her so I am in a mix tbh and I came from a 8.1 and I like that one more than 10 just dunno easier to do not having the shitty Microsoft Settings instead of Control Panel so I modded it with Classic Shell which is fine but don't bring back the Windows Update that i miss :laugh:

Win 10 still offers the old Control Panel without any modding on your part.
I myself don't really miss manual updates. I hope it will eventually lead to properly tested drivers instead.

You can take control of the Updates with the Windows Update Tool. Mussels keeps the links updated: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/guide-disabling-windows-10-automatic-updates-and-spyware.218745/

EDIT: @Dethroy, technically, you are correct, but not in reality. A good look at the control panel in 10 reveals that the majority of the guts have been ripped out and put into "Settings" It's like they kept a faint glimmer of the control panel just for Public Relations purposes.

The good news is that Start 10 will restore the majority of those back into the control panel.

that wasn't what i meant it's just the whole settings thing and u can't disable run as administrator properly without getting the message:



This here is just driving me crazy bcs I hate right click or need to set everything to run as admin it's just easier to disable this shit.

and i miss the Windows Update window from 8.1

@puma99dk| high time to revert back to 8.1 since 10 still has tons of bugs that MS did not iron out. Never had issues on 8.1 despite never keep the OS up-to-date, only the drivers, software & utilities are in the latest builds. Tried 10 myself for a week. Not impressed with the changes they (MS) made.

10 has way less issues than 8.1 but 7 is the closes they have come to perfect. But now with the update issues they have messed that up

I dunno... 8.1 was pretty solid, add Classic Shell and it was a damn solid experience all around IMHO. Though even with the added bugs and glitches here and there, I prefer 10 overall. Getting better with each passing month IMHO.

sure I'm running DX11.2 but it's more than enough. Since the support for the newer DX12 API is lacking, I'll stick to 8.1 until then. UI wise on 10 is not one of the nicest out there... looks rather out of place & the taskbar looks shrunk a little compared to 8.
