personal assistants

Speaking of personal assistants, I like the idea

The problem is, I don't like the concept of always being on line, on/in the
cloud, and I always think of the term :in the net" as compared to "on the
net"..
I have nothing to hide, I just don't like the edea of leaving all those
trails for "them/they" to follow.
I doubt I will ever install win 10 home. No thank you!!!

Well yes, the point has been made that Siri and Google Now basically do the
same thing. Although I personally don't use either one of those. I am not
impressed by nor do I have a need for personal assistant software.

Yes it does make a concern to privacy. But so does google on android and
Siri on iPhone and Siri on other devices.
I can see though how it would be helpful for certain people with certain
handicaps. Especially as it gets older and better.
So as just being blind and no other handicap it might not really help. But I
can see other handicaps with blindness or without blindness in making it
easier to use the computer.

LOL no reason other than we probably just forgot. Although I personally
consider Cortana a fluff feature with which I am not overly impressed. It
also contributes to the privacy concerns in Windows 10.

I've been following this thread with interest, and I'm wondering why no one
has mentioned Cortana. I was looking forward to that particular feature. Is
there a problem with it?

I agree with statements that if you are running 8/8.1, there are fewer
reasons not to upgrade. The Windows 10 core is based on Windows 8 so
Windows 10 is essentially an updated version of Windows 8. Not taking into
account the privacy concerns, it basically just adds features to what you
already have including a Start menu. One of the things which made 8 less
popular was the lack of a Start menu. Upgrading from 8 to 10 is probably
less of a transition than upgrading from 7 to 10.

Well, you have a year from the time it came out to do it. So still have
plenty of time. That is to get it free.
Now I personally think if you are running W8 version then it is a no
brainer to update.
Now if you are running W7 I would say it is a choice but like I say
there is no big hurry as of now.
I also think if you want to go ahead and play around with it is to do a
dual boot and have both W7 and W10 your PC.
I would not dual boot with W8 I would just upgrade to w10 myself! JMT!

Hi, everyone,
Iâ?Tve heard a lot of good things about windows ten, but Iâ?Tve also
heard that the accessibility leaves a lot to be desired. What is
everyoneâ?Ts opinions, should I upgrade now, or wait until later. And
if I do upgrade now, are there things I need to know right away to
begin
using windows ten?
If I do wait until later, might anyone have a suggestion as to how long
to wait.
Or am I being too cautious about this whole thing? Thank you for all
responses. I really appreciate it very much.
Jamie
