I loaded the update on a computer and now that computer is way slower than before. The computer has more than enough processing power and memory according to the specs, but Windows 10 has slowed it down from a reasonable performer to a sluggish performer. I just don't see any advantages to the upgrade for me, but I hear that all sorts of data gets sent back to MicroSoft headquarters. Maybe that's what's slowing the darn computer down so much!

Everything I've heard is that the upgrade is a waste of time even if you have nothing better to do. If you have a slow internet connection then just forget it!
