General chit-chat on the Linx 7

Is it OK to upgrade to Windows 10 in 2016?

Postby willbsp1234 » March 22nd, 2016, 5:29 pm

I want to upgrade my tablet (Linx 7) to Windows 10 and just want to know if the problems with it have been sorted out. I would also like to know if it is good to upgrade through Windows Update without any problems as of March 2016.
Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't bother , I've upgraded two devices and regretted both , at present my Linx 1010 has lost its start menu and tried all the supposed fixes , only way to get it back is create another user and sign in with that one . An Acer Revo 3610 I upgraded worked flawlessly on W7 for years , I upgraded and within the week it had blue screened , no recovery so back to W7 I went .

I am going to answer my own question, it is perfectly fine to upgrade to Windows 10 on a Linx 7. I upgraded from Windows 8.1 and experienced no problems in upgrading, in fact I am typing this post on my tablet running Windows 10. I had no problems with auto-rotate or the cameras. Although, when it first booted into Windows 10 it was slightly sluggish but I went into Windows Update and installed an update for the graphics adapter. It now works flawlessly.

We have 3 Linx 7s and I upgraded all 3 from 8.1 to 10 without any issues too. These were all brand new tablets though that hadn't been used so that might have helped.

As per Lordminty. Just updated a new Linx 7 to Win 10 without any issues. In fact I do think it runs maybe a little bit smoother/faster.
No issues anyway.
