Can't imagine my life without one ever again. That little circling circle while waiting to open a program, the infamous "Program not responding"? Not for meNah, you just in the morning walk through the office and turn everything on before opening the doors and putting the kettle on etc..... the wait has never been a problem. There is no PC in the office running an SSD.
When moving to Windows 10 I will typically recommend an SSD first if the rest of the hardware is fine.And what if people can't afford it? Or their PC's don't meet the other minimum requirements? You want someone to buy a whole new PC even though the old one still functions just because Win7 is EOL? Is that not a waste of money in many cases?
There are still many PC's running P4 CPU's and nothing is wrong with them.
This is SA, the majority of small business and home PC's were running cracked w7's anyway. The age of w10 might change audit practices at some point who knows.snip
Yeah I think we tend to turn a blind eye for home use and very small businesses.This is SA, the majority of small business and home PC's were running cracked w7's anyway. The age of w10 might change audit practices at some point who knows.
Cloud is generally a nono because of internet instability/uncertainty/cost of connection.
As an aside, I am currently having to troubleshoot a P4 with 512MB RAM and 80GB IDE HDD..... the thing randomly fails to boot and the XP bootlog is useless...... someones home PC. There are a LOT of these PC's still running but thankfully the number is declining, the thing is too slow to run any AV at this point but replacing it is beyond their budget.... of course it seems to me that the HDD is failing so they are probably gonna have to chuck it anyway at some point.
I have noticed there is an outright wastage in big business where machines are simply chucked as soon as the warranty expires. If they all donated the stuff to a national charity which would then resell the perfectly hardware a lot more people could in turn save money and get their hardware from a reliable source.snip
