Yeah, my best friend (who I got the PC from) got a new almost high-end one and an M2 with it. It takes 8,5 seconds, even less with fastboot, from pushing the button until Windows 10 is started, which is insane
And yes, Eclipse was barely usable on the laptop. It ran better when both, Eclipse and the laptop, were younger^^
I will keep using Windows 7 until it stops supporting the hardware I want to use. And probably even after that I will keep it in a VM.
The problem with Windows 10 (and I keep reading that all over the Internet AND from friends) are the massive problems with older games.
I love to play old games, and if that isn't possible without massive problems, there is no reason for me at all to switch to Windows 10.
I mean, it doesn't seem to be that bad of an OS, compared to 8.1, and I hear some good things about it from friends, but it's just not enough to make the effort and switch.
Maybe I will get Linux, too, at some point, with the aforementioned Windows 7 VM, but that again depends on hardware drivers and stuff.
We'll see what the future brings.
