Windows 10 and Linx 8 with Windows 8.1 and Bing

General chit-chat on the Linx 8

Windows 10 and Linx 8 with Windows 8.1 and Bing

Postby rodlinford » August 4th, 2015, 12:24 pm

Dear All

Just to clarify as I have been searching the WWW but the answer I have had from tech support is do not upgrade the Linx 8 to windows 10.

Although the little box has been notified that 10 is available the hardware will struggle.

So I will be keeping my little Linx 8 as it was designed.

I hope this post helps.

Kind regards
Rod

Which "tech support" said it will struggle? Plenty of people have upgraded Linx tablets to Windows 10 and are happy.

Here's a couple of videos demonstrating Windows 10 on a Linx 7

Overall the tablet works as fast, maybe a little faster that it did with Windows 8.1. Windows 10 works very well on a small tablet

We've had many users upgrade it to Windows 10 and have had very minor issues that we've not been able to fix.

Windows 10 has better performance than Windows 8.1, and is even built on 8.1, so I'm sure you'll be fine!

Dann is also in the process of getting clarification for this from his contacts as exertis. But as it stands it's looking like they are taking a easy out with regards to Warranty when it comes to upgrading.

Pretty poor after sales if you ask me. How ever there are many here who will help in anyway they can.

I've spoken with Exertis regarding this issue, and you're able to read a statement here: http://www.linxtablet.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=1095
