General Meeting on Wednesday - 13 July 2016
The St. Louis Unix Users Group (SLUUG) general meetings are usually on the second Wednesday of each month.

We start the general meeting with a basic session; which may include either simple tutorials, displays of newly discovered web sites, command line wonders, demonstrations of useful applications, amazing graphical packages, major resolution of long standing anomalies, blinking lights, or quantum shifts in both time and space. Then we will have our usual quick welcome, introduction, administrative announcements, and a Questions and Answers Period. After all that, we take a break before our main event.

Basic Session

The basics portion will be Microsoft Windows 10 Upgrade Issues by Mark Bail

Normally Abstract/Background/Details/History/Outline/Summary/Walkthrough will be listed when available.

There is that spirit that all of us tend to say "Friends Don't Let Friends Do Micro$oft" but as consultants (either in business or to friends and family) we need to give some specific answers to questions such as:

  • 1. What does MS claim is the advantage to upgrading to 10?
  • 2. What "objectively" is the advantage to upgrading to 10?
  • 3. What is the disadvantage of "upgrading" to 10?
  • 4. What happens if I don't upgrade?
  • 5. Can I roll-back to XP/Vista/7/8 if I don't like Win 10? How? (If I don't have OEM restore disks, how do I make one?) Consequences?
  • 6. Can I dual-boot/multi-boot my system and BOTH upgrade to 10 as well as keep a copy of "good-old" (COUGH!!) XP/Vista/7/8? Is it a technical problem or a licensing problem? Can they run simultaneously in VMs?
  • 7. Plus other issues.
  • Bio:

    I'm certainly no expert, and I wouldn't call myself an enthusiast, but maybe an enthusiastic hobbyist. I have been tinkering with computers since 2004. I'm most knowledgeable about computer hardware. I have been active on many computer related forums, most recently http://pcper.com/ under the handle "btdog" where I post reviews, discuss current trends in technology and offer troubleshooting assistance to anyone that will listen.

    Main Event
