I’ve had windows 10 on old Seagate hard drive that I bought in 2007. I really can’t complain about that one. it still works fine. Windows 10 is just anything but efficient with drive use. I hated to buy an SSD for windows which I only boot into once a month if that but I got tired of the click, wait, wait, wait, window shows up with spinning cursor, wait, wait, wait.
After the last experience I had of wasting hours to use a specific program that required windows but required I do certain painfully slow update that took hours of my time I have started to boot into the steaming pile of turds known as windows 10 more than every few months when I need it just to run windows update. I could upgrade to an SSD for windows but I don’t use it enough to justify the cost of another windows tax.
I don’t use Windows often at all but once in a while I need boot into it to use a specific program that I haven’t found an alternative to or stuff like update bios and that sort of thing. It seems that they decided to download the annoyingly slow auto updates exactly the times I need to do something quick and reboot back into FreeBSD which is set up how I want it to be.
FreeBSD is my main operation system and I do 95 percent of what I need or want to do in that. FreeBSD for 10+ years has been solid as a rock for me. About 2 years ago I built a new computer. The q6600 system I’d built a 10 years prior was showing its age. I was starting to have random glitches that may or may not have been related to the motherboard but Ryzen looked good and for a good price so I figured it’s time to rebuild.
