Been having some issues with my laptop, It suddenly just turns off and I couldn't get service pack 1 to install no matter what I did. Thought it might be an overheating problem so I ran diagnostics, nothing. Made sure the registry junk was cleaned out and ran a registry repair program, no luck. So two days ago I backed up all my files, favorites, picts, etc then yesterday morning wiped the hard drive and reinstalled Win 7. That was just the beginning....... Once the OS was loaded I had to install all the Dell proprietary drivers..... one at a time. Then there were 140 updates... then another 20 updates... then another 18 updates..... At one point the laptop suddenly cut off again. After spending an hour downloading the programs I want and configuring it the way I want it I finally loaded and installed SlimDrivers and updated all my drivers. So far no problems...... we'll see...... Major pain in the ass!!
It's not so much all of that, it's that it took me a total of about 5 hours to load, update and configure something that used to take an average of an hour to do it in the past. Not to mention it averages 30 minutes to do the same thing with Linux.
Win7 installs were fast at the start, that's for sure.
Right now the only reason I haven't switched back to Linux exclusively is because I like certain games that are windows only but now that Steam is available for Linux and more games are being written for Linux........
