I have tried in deep Windows 10, and … I am dissapointed. The new operating system has been sold as the best ever created by Microsoft, but I have the impression that it is not, and here you can read my experience with it, where you can see that I have invested too much hours.
If you are installing Windows 10, do not be in a harry, because it takes time (too much)!
I few months ago, in a new laptop, I had a brilliant idea: reset it to default, and it took in several hours showing this script … until it comes back yo life!
A friend of mine decided to restore from a back up, and it was working for more that 24 hours. So, make yourself confortable and be in a hurry!
But , is the best, isn’t it?
I can’t imagen a Linux distro that takes 4 or 5 hours for installing it, even if you have a very fast computer. If this happend with a laptop bought in November 2015, how much it will take in a older one?
I decided to reset the laptop because I thought I have strange behaviours, such us not letting me writting a text file on a USB, or reading files took too long. Anyway, after 4 hours of installing the OS, a new concept appear for me: http://windows.microsoft.com/es-es/windows-vista/what-is-the-trusted-platform-module-security-hardware.

There is something I hate with new computer: too much innecesary software. So, I manage to unistall several of them such us Evernote, antivirus, Dropbox 25 GB, games WildTangent, …. This is too much work to do that it takes time, space and who know what else!
Also, it is good to know for you what this entrance said related to disk units. If you need to have the Search option in the context menu, let follow these steps. Or maybe you can customize even more following more steps, accessing the registry.
