New Re: Hive mind consensus on Windows 10?
I don't like it as much as Windows 7, but it certainly is better than Windows 8 or 8.1. Windows 8, 8.1 or 10 will be a major shock to an XP user, but Windows 10 is, in my opinion, a slightly lesser shock.

A lot of stuff still easily available in Windows 7 is now so well hidden it forces you to use the search function to find nearly anything useful.
New Well said.
I never used 8 or 8.1 (other than the time it took to install 10 on an 8.1 machine).

10 is Ok. One doesn't have to use any of the "tiles" and "Metro" and other weirdness from 8.1 that is still present if you look for it. Otherwise, it's pretty-much Windows. (Pay attention to the install instructions and turn off all the "send my life to Microsoft" stuff - the tiny Customize settings text link.)

Yeah, installing XP or 7 in a VM is an option, but I wouldn't do it unless it is the only way to get the job done. 7 is still supported, but running it in a VM introduces more things to worry about keeping updated.

She could run WP Mac on OSX Intel also too (an entertaining writeup), but I wouldn't do that either.

HTH a little.
