Win­dows woes

Computer Shopper - - LETTERS -

Here we are in 2018 with new tech­nol­ogy all around us and with a not-too-old ver­sion of Win­dows – or is it? Win­dows 10 is be­com­ing rather like the gi­ant in Jack and the Beanstalk. For an ordinary user it must be a night­mare when they sud­denly find that it’s go­ing to take pos­si­bly over four hours to load a brand new sys­tem sup­plied with their pur­chase.

Trans­late that into hav­ing to set up 20 PCs for a busi­ness and you might as well say good­bye to your IT man­ager, be­cause you aren’t go­ing to see them for a while.

Let me just say that my pur­chases are not bot­tom of the bucket ma­chines: they have Core i5 pro­ces­sors with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD from a proven man­u­fac­turer.

The problem ap­pears to be that once you switch on the PC, you can­not avoid the up­grade route that Mi­crosoft takes as it cur­rently stands.

Would it not be a better so­lu­tion to put in place what­ever ver­sion of Win­dows 10 Pro ships and then do all the up­grades? There just has to be a better so­lu­tion, and this view ap­pears to be shared by other IT pro­fes­sion­als I speak to. Brian Cameron
