Daughter and spouse had bought an HP all-in-one PC and wanted me to install office (their trial had run out - there are some advantages to being a beneficiary of the MS HUP).
- It was slow.............. A combination of inadequate PC (they didn't ask me before buying) and a clunky OS. Seemed to take forever to boot and same again to uninstall the existing office. Don't know what they paid, but low end processor (think it was a celeron, certainly not i3/5) and mechanical 2TB HDD, 4GB ram.
- Hated the user interface - tiled like a phone and couldn't find anything (used to win7). Resorted to using search to find "My computer" and control panel. Is 'dumbed down' the right phrase?
- Installed synctoy for them - it's okay, use it on my work PC, but thank you, I'll stick to BackinTime and home grown scripts running rsync.
- Did several restarts, I think each time it insisted on doing an update.
- Tried and failed to get it to boot from USB or CD, I wasn't that fussy either would do (not that I tried that hard). Wanted to use REDO to take a system backup before I left. Managed to get into BIOS (F10) and change boot order. Rebooted, it complained and booted into windows. Ended up using MS to take a system image onto a USB HDD they had and left it chugging away. I'm sure I could have spent more time and got it to boot from USB/CD, but not my PC.
Overall experience - Awful.
