Are we talking about plex on an old computer shoved in a closet running linux? Because I use it, and it's awesome (as long as you stream media in it's original quality, Pentium 4s suck at transcoding). I also don't really know what else to stream it with.

Is this what you run mumble on?

I'd consider a media server, but right now space is a bit limited. I also don't know what I get out of it versus just using my laptop and my terrabytes of external HDD's. When either of you have free time, would you be willing to start a thread to convince me to build one? I can't say I have the money right now, but I would consider it within the year.

Well, I reformatted that computer since y'all last used the mumble server (although installing it again is easy anyway). But yeah, it's pretty simple to set up, especially if you're going to use plex. I guess I could make a guide pretty easily.

You don't really need a dedicated box for a dedicated server. Though with Raspberry Pi, you are talking about a $40 solution and maybe some more for a powered USB hub for your external HDDs.

Who else has updated to 10?

So far I can't say I'm impressed. This Slate article did help me with some of my security settings: http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/bitwise/2015/08/windows_10_privacy_problems_here_s_how_bad_they_are_and_how_to_plug_them.html?wpsrc=sh_all_dt_tw_bot. But I do have a feeling there are more I need to take care of.

I can upgrade on like three of my computers (which I keep putting off), but I'm waiting until November-ish to upgrade my main computer so I can avoid some bugs in ArmA 3 and such. I mean, the upgrade isn't going anywhere until next year.

The privacy issues are certainly a concern and showing direction that Windows is evolving into. Probably an SaaS (Software as a Service) ie. Cloud, operating system. This will make it so that your data will need to at least in part be stored by MS. It doesn't mean that they have to give themselves permission to look but I'm sure there's no way they won't at least try to build lots of analytics based on it, meaning they will have to look, even programmatically. What better way to test the waters than this? Just look at Cortana and what that means to privacy. If you want all of your data that interacts with Cortana private, you have to disable it.

On to the other stuff. I haven't upgraded. My wife tried and it got stuck at 30% for hours and she restarted. Windows blue screened and I had to rebuild the BCD. Not by the awesome bootrec /RebuildBcd. Oh no. Windows boot loader couldn't find the sector of the harddrive c: was, much less c:\Windows to boot it. I had to do a checkdisk to rebuild journal entries, then make the partition active with Windows on it, then force write the boot sector and again, not with the awesome automatic bootrec /FixBoot. Eventually, after manually rebuilding (not complete super manual - which I've done before by physically writing the boot file, creating a new volume GUID, and then forcing my new parameters into the bootloader) I got Windows 7 to boot again.

I'm sure it would be fine on my own computer that I build myself but I still haven't wanted to upgrade. If I wanted the "new" feature of multiple desktops, I'd use Linux (I do!). If I wanted DirectX 12, I wouldn't care until I had a DX 12 video card, if I wanted faster boot, I'd force logoff of the user and put it in hibernate anyway. There just isn't a whole lot of reason to update with one exception. Some Visual Studio functionality is locked into Windows 10. But honestly, if my programming environment is important to me and it is locked into an OS, then it isn't a very good development language to begin with.

Seriously though. When the biggest features are the: Start Menu (I use Windows 7 for Windows anyway), touch centric UI (I don't have a touch screen and I use a desktop), Cortana (I didn't use my own voice command assistant I built for Windows 98 in the 90s, so I doubt I'd give up my private data to do so now), universal apps (uh yeah, I can use executables, yay!) and Secure Boot which does the exact same thing BIOS since the 90s have been doing but this time in a locked down environment where MS literally holds the (private) keys to allow only certain operating systems to boot (UEFI) then I can't really see a need to upgrade.

Sure there are also the aforementioned virtual desktops and supposedly an apt like software update system, both taken from circa 2002 Linux but if I wanted that, I have that.

The other issue is that the first upgrades are going to be the worst. MS will need to push patches to fix problems. Better to let the early adopters face these problems and let you upgrade hassle-free.

Steve's checklist for loving an OS:
✔ Can browse OFPR site
✔ Can install steam
✔ Boots to OS when you turn computer on

And there you have it, what's not to love?

Also, multiple desktops is a feature in WX? They should've had that a looooooong time ago.

I love the fact I can play my xbox 1 on my PC.  I haven't had any issues yet minus my nvidia drivers got messed up on upgrade.  plus DX12, reason alone to upgrade.  If you don;t like it you can roll back to our old OS within a month.
