I got a 2 hour update this week and then had to reset all my privacy settings. I really like Windows 7, it never gave me any problems. But there is a silver lining--Windows 10 lets me run an old, moldy, wonderful 3d landscape program called Bryce that I found that I missed a lot. It was the first 3d "art" program I ever used, and I never would have mastered it without the help of the people on the alt.binaries.3d Bryce newsgroup. That's how long ago it was when I was using it :D You can model in it using the same lattices that you use to make terrains--and it's amazing what you can make out of "dirt". A lot of people make fantastic spaceships in it! It used to be we would piss and moan about a render taking 30-40 minutes--I ran an old file on the new computer and it took TWO MINUTES and TWENTY EIGHT SECONDS, including antialiasing. Whoo!!
Now if I could just get rid of the ads on the Start page...
