Don’t think is was better or worse. I do see windows 10 running slower, even though my laptop has a better CPU and more memory than my old one with Windows 8.1. It also is a pain to regain control of your privacy because 10 makes it difficult to change privacy settings. Using cortina is good and helps find things fast. The new browser isn’t great and chrome and Firefox are miles ahead of it.
I use 10 because I have it, but never would have paid to upgrade from 8 to 10.
