Gawd, I hate winders !

I just wanted to see how it would cooexist with Peppermint in UEFI mode.

I felt like throwing my keyboard through the monitor, most of the day.  What an antiquated POS operating system !

And, slow !?!?!  OMG, it's infuriating !

You want slow - watch it upgrade to windows 10       around 60-90 minutes to complete on yr hardware at a guess

if you haven't already blocked it and/or disabled some updates - it will ask you to within 24 hours to upgrade to Wind 10

It did on my recent experiment

best way to stop it - apart from not have it installed in the first place; is a tool called "Never 10" from GRC

Is winders 10 better than 7, or worse ?

It's all subjective - it's quicker (slightly)  its a mix of 7 and 8   but more 8

If I could get Win 7 installed I would use that til 2020 - I am already on the books for a free Win 10  so no worries

unless they change the Rules and decide my 2016 i7 is no longer supported - lool

Which is what most people are thinking will happen as they decide what is "the lifetime of the machine" you are using

Which ever one you keep you should look at something like

If you want to stop their data mining...  as its installed now on 7, 8, 8.1 and 10
