Gawd, THANK you InfoWorld. Woody, particularly.

I can’t believe anyone believes Windows 10 is ready for primetime. My experiment giving them a chance only made me more confident in my decision to build my own multiboot machine with Ubuntu, OSX, and y’know, 7. NOT 10.

If you’re thinking about trying that experiment yourself, make an EXTERNAL backup. Microsoft’s promise to restore your system if you don’t like 10 is about as effective as the rest of 10. Wiped all my system restore points and killed an entire USB controller hub. And God knows what else.
