    The Steinberg VSL 2020 that I'm running has drivers up to XP (32 bit). The version of XP I'm running on the machine has worked on three different machines just by taking the (IDE) OS hard drive from the last and plugging it into the next. I'm not completely sure what happens when I try to copy that drive to a SATA, but I do know that a fresh install of XP is getting tougher and tougher. I mean, it works up to the point that you need something from one of the updates...

    I probably don't really need to upgrade that machine soon, but I want to upgrade my "living room" machine, and I'd like to be able to accomplish that by upgrading the studio machine and then moving its old mobo to the living room. Just doesnt feel right to me to have more horsepower in the machine that I use for Netflix and Facebook than the one I use for audio production. :/

    Plus, they're both kind of jealous of my live machine which just runs circles around both of them.

    Have not had any time to get back to Ten. Initial turn on, worked.

    Sounds played thru my 2496 but I then found that Samplitude Silver won't run neither will Cubase Elements 6. In the latter I cannot set "Delta ASIO" as the default driver, perhaps never shall?

    Investigations also showed some potential problems with my KA6 interface but NI now have a driver (I expected no less!) . No chance to try it yet.

    One thing totally bugs me....No "Computer" ! HTF are peeps supposed to check things after install if you cannot readily call up your drives etc? There IS a way to get it back it seems, first job on my return to it.

    One thing I noticed? It shut down like heavy coffin lid!

    Dave.

    Dave (ecc) - keep us updated!

    I have studiously ignored the constant 'free upgrade now' pop-ups. Afraid that my Tascam US800 won't be nice with it, as well as a bunch of software I've been using since Vista and XP days - some of which gives me issues in W7 (like crashing first time it boots up, but ok the next time).

    I guess because there are differences, (compared to Win7) it's free and it comes over the net.

    It's only free and comes over the net if you already have a legal, version that qualifies for the upgrade.
    Which means you already have to own Win 7 or Win 8...
    Oh...and the jury is still out on whether Win 10 is really "free" in the long run. It may not cost as an OS, but MS will have their claws in you after that on a deeper scale. So it's a different price to pay.


    I'm talking about the operational features/differences (mostly as they apply to a DAW environment).
    What does Win 10 get you that you don't already have?

    I think that the main thing that you get is an upgrade path for the foreseeable future. Win7 will be going the way of WinXP before too terribly long.

    I loved Win7, and it was only a whim that prompted me to update to Win10. There's nothing magical about it though. Win7 will be fine for a while, but not forever. At least with Win10 the upgrade path is pretty well set for a while.

    Oh and Dave, Win10 "encourages" you to use the feature of typing into the start menu. It was available in Win7, but Win10 pretty much necessitates that you click the start button and start typing what you're looking for. Most of the nerdier features and settings are under the "settings" item in the start menu...same applies there. click on Settings and start typing what you're looking for (device manager, sound, printers, etc...).

    Well that's a bloody silly idea for people like me! I was never the most accurate typist and now that I have lost virtually all my central vision in my left eye I am even worse. I am 70 next week so I don't see my skills getting any better now. I click, copy and paste as much as I can.

    As for "What did the Romans ev....Sorry! Win 10 do for us? Well I said the same thing about 98se, did not want XP (especially when it wouldn't run my printer!) Very soon of course we all thought XP was the best thing since bread *** cut.

    Now all I need is some time to try the bloody thing!

    Well I'll be jiggered! That is the first time I have seen censorship in HR! Compared to other words I think "see yoo emm" is very tame and I did not even mean it in the sense of the mind that censored it.

    I once was describing a noise on a forum as a "chink" and if that gets trashed I mean the same word as in a "bit" of light. P C gone mad!

    Dave.

    You can pin just about anything to either your start menu or your taskbar, so once you find what you're looking for, right-click it and select "pin to start menu" or wherever you want to pin it. Then you don't have to go searching for it after that.
