The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

GeneralWindows 10 ... slow burn. Pin

So I made the switch back in August and loved Win10. Ignited some Win fanboyism that I thought I could never again regain. It works and it works well.
... until
In the past two months I keep getting BSOD. Which, really, I can't remember seeing a BSOD is YEARSSS. Yet I have a modern O.S., which is getting a big push from Windows, supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread, and my name brand laptop is < 2 years old. Am I missing something?????

Apparently this is common, a happening to a lot of people with newish Asus and Dell laptops. Here is the windows forum thread about it.

I guess everyone was right, Don't upgrade yet. Even though the interface is nice and much more user friendly, Windows will do its best to sabotage you.

I'm running Fedora 23 on my other laptop and it's turned it from a Celeron beater to an actually decent machine. That some how worked out of the box perfectly. Windows, for shame.
