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
