9 is my favorite number so i'm really bummed about them skipping it. what idiots.


anyways i don't like the program "menus" on windows 10. maybe once i get used to it it'll be better but right now it seems like everything is just pointlessly complicated in search windows.

also it totally f**k my sound drivers so now i just can't access my on-board sound so that's a pretty cool feature.

Gives you a prompt for the upgrade immediately, and shows as fully installed and activated afterwards. At least it has for me on three consecutive installs.


Thank you for this.

Got Win10 on my Surface Pro 2, been streaming my Xbox to it all day and fixing other things. I'm not a power user by any means, few bugs here and there but overall been swell.

Took me a minute to look up how to remove that massive bar at the bottom for cortana, but it was super easy so I felt like an idiot. Overall, seems ok.


I've encountered a couple of minor bugs...such as having to close and reopen the start menu when I'm doing a lot of shuffling around of tiles. Also had a couple of tweak outs from running multiple monitors, but it recovered quickly once it figured out what I was trying to do. How is that streaming, btw, phos? Getting artifacting? lag? I hear they're working on streaming the other direction, from PC to xbox, which is what I'd be more interested in.


Gotta remember Phos is a Ubuntu user, so Win10 in his future probably isn't going to happen for quite some time.

The streaming has been ok so far, nothing to complain about. The only thing that's different is that you have to plugin the controller/headset into the computer itself, rather than connect it wirelessly to the xbox like usual. I lost the connection in the middle of a match and had to wait a minute until it could reconnect. I bought the dock for my SP2 so it has an Ethernet port and I am hardwired to the modem, so that only happened a couple of times. One time it said I had the controller plugged in, but it wouldn't let me move until I backed out and started the stream again, but that only happened once.

Newb. Not even a prime number.

9 is 3 3 times. 3 is a divine number. trilogies, triarchs, and triumverates also permeate the world.

9 is great.
