Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs It's not Windows 8 10/18/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Pros: It's not Windows 8.

Cons: * Tries to turn my computer into a mobile "device."
* The default metro-ish "apps" are trash, forcing one to download real desktop programs (you know--real software applications) for video, photos, music, and so on and then set those actually useful programs as the defaults.
* Privacy issues (which I won't bother repeating here) and the huge number of settings that you must find and set to stop most of the spying.
* Being served ads even though I paid for this operating system software.

Other Thoughts: Professionals who use real computers (and not "devices" for managing our "stuff") and depend on Windows are professionals who use them to do real work via spreadsheets, word processors, and presentation tools. That's just for starters. Then there are the heavy-duty applications for photo, audio, and video editing. Don't forget engineering design, modeling, analysis and simulation. Oh, wait, we omitted publishing, accounting/tax-preparation, and project planning. There are other vertical-market applications too numerous to list: a single such example involves the medical field: diagnostic tools, equipment-control, record-keeping, insurance case analysis, and many others. We don't have the space to get into software-development tools. I could go on.

These junky default "apps" from the Windows "store" are useless, and Microsoft's arrogant and stubborn focus on them dilutes the operating system that the Windows environment once promised professional people. They have no place on workstations, desktop systems and professional-grade laptops. Unfortunately, Microsoft is so consumed with turning our computers into "mobile devices" and catering to hipsters that it's nauseating.

Why is Microsoft incapable of making a real operating system for grown-ups anymore?

HP EliteDisplay E241i Silver 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Pretty much what everyone else says.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I liked it so much that I just bought a second one (although not from the Egg, as I have "prime" shipping at another well-known online seller).

Crucial MX200 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy installation, works perfectly, very fast, good price, trusted brand.

Cons: Not free?

Other Thoughts: I've used several MX100s (512 GB) during the past year and never had even a hint of a problem with them. I've been wanting to try the MX200 since it came out, and I'm not disappointed. It was a no-hassle installation and this thing is faaaaaaast.
