Windows 10 is going the way as its predecessors

I had hoped to write "Windows 10 is going the same way as its predecessors" but that was too long for the Title Window.

I don't think I'm wrong on this one, so here goes.

Each additional Biannual Update makes Start-up slower. In a couple of years I shall be timing my boiled egg with it, in 5 years, it'll be a hard boiled one! Once it was swift, that is no longer the case

Maybe you need to do some serious housekeeping? My 2 year old laptop with an SSD running W10 takes 25 seconds from switch on to being fully up and running.

Al: You may not have noticed but, I did not say that Start-up was slow. I said that, with each of the bi-annual Updates, Windows 10 was becoming slower.

From what I've experienced on my two desktops, a clean reinstallation's the only way to keep it sweet.

It interests me that the way MS keeps the loading time down is by delaying the installation of assorted bits of itself

I've never understood the fixation some seem to have with loading time. How many people need to have their PC/laptop/whatever up and available in 15 seconds, yet I see posts on other forums as if it's some sort of holy grail to have the thing running almost before you hit the start button.

Maybe Microsoft's pandering to these twits.

Qwbos: I agree with you

What you said was

Interesting. My version, running on a 4GHz iMac with 24GB memory via Parallels Desktop 14 takes 45 seconds to load the desktop, but I tend to agree that the apps running under W10 are running more slowly than before which is why I switched to macs about 4 years back. Unfortunately, I still need Windows for a couple of apps, otherwise it would be completely off my machine.

Al: That's a tad pedantic! Especially as the meaning is almost the same

I suppose it depends on your hardware to an extent. Presume you've run CCleaner or similar? All my windows apps open virtually instantaneously and I have seen no deterioration at all.
