I’ve been resisting upgrading my computer to Windows 10 for the longest time — it came with Windows 7 on it when I bought it a few years ago and I was just fine with that — most of the work I do I use Chrome for anyway, because that’s the web browser I have to use to access my work websites. Not to mention, my smartphone is an Android, so it uses the same system. Yesterday morning, however, my computer restarted by itself and started installing Windows 10. After busying myself doing other things while waiting for the install to finish, I started using it a little bit. I have to say so far I have mixed feelings about it. My computer seems to work faster, which is good. I’ve tried using some of the features, like being able to write and make notes directly on web pages — that’s actually a great feature to have, if you use Microsoft OneNote. For the past few years now though, I’ve been strictly using Evernote to make notes and save web pages to — it works great with Chrome, but not with Microsoft’s new web browser, Microsoft Edge. The only Evernote app that’s available in Microsoft’s web store is Evernote Touch. As a matter of fact, about the only thing that I found find in Microsoft’s Web Store that I use on Chrome currenlty is the Kindle reader.
That’s my first impression of Windows 10 — as I start to use it more, I’ll write more updates about how I’m liking it.
