Performance After Creator's Update



  • Anyone noticing any performance differences or any difference after the Windows 10 Creator's Update?

    I'm noticing Vivaldi is a bit snappier and quicker after the update. Resource usage is about the same after having over 5 active tabs, but when I first opened it up it used less CPU/RAM. Those are my immediate impressions.

    @D0J0P - Actually, I hate to say it, but everything seems to run better after the CU.

    Why? Microsoft work hard to improve their products, just like other developers.

    I was hesitant to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 due to the negative press, but I have no regrets.

    @Pesala: Why? The tolerate/hate relationship I have with MS. Their business practices are anathema, and yet, since everyone (including my customers) uses their stuff, I'm stuck on their platforms.

    Just in case you're interested, & if it helps, i've recently learned how to run [almost* all of] MS Office 2010 Pro in Linux, via a dedicated WinePrefix. All my prior attempts a couple of years ago, during my extended migration from Windoze to Linux [Wine, PlayOnLinux] were hideous failures with miserable unreliability. I'm really pleased at how, well, excellent, this new method is [right this moment, albeit having a temporary break to look at the latest V posts, i have one of my big Word docs, & two of my Excel spreadsheets, open & in active edits, direct in my Maui Linux].

    *Outlook launches but freezes. However i already use Thunderbird [& you're about to (/already) use Vivaldi M3], so this doesn't much bother me. So far ALL the other Office pgms work.

    There's nothing legally dodgy about this btw; it's not some pirated thing. You still have to have a legit Office ISO or installation dvd, with Product Key blah blah, but once those boxes are ticked, this cool method creates Office 2010 running natively [as far as the user is concerned] in your OS... simply that said OS is now your chosen Linux distro, not Windoze.

    If you, or anyone else, is interested, i'll happily post the detailed steps to achieve this outcome.

    I imagine that Office might be far from the only pgm still tethering you to Windoze, but hey, this is [a pretty big] another brick in the wall, teehee.

    @Steffie: I actually don't have/use MS Office on this machine. For its formats, I use mostly SoftMaker Office or, in a pinch, LibreOffice. I have it installed on another machine for desperate cases when there's an Excel spreadsheet that just won't display correctly in anything else, but I can't stand the way it tries to out-think you while you're composing a document (deciding what your formatting should be, etc.). I sort of grew up in the Word Perfect world, where that was not an issue. But these days I prefer programs that let the user be boss, and that, at the same time, aren't boggy/laggy and don't hammer system resources. That's where SoftMaker Office comes in for me.



  • @Ayespy -- Ha! I began with WordPerfect & Lotus1-2-3. I tried but failed to come to terms with Borland.
