When Windows 10 was in the General availability status, I was proud there was a new version of Windows. I was using Windows 8.0 at that time. I really wanted to try out this new version of Windows. So, I had a clean copy installation of Windows 10 Pro, and installed it.
Note that I used to always use 32-bit versions of Windows.
After the installation, I liked most things in that version of Windows, including the UI design.
The performance was the same as the performance in Windows 8.0 and Windows 7.
I even used to use Google Chrome as my main web browser back then, and it was running fine.
Everything was ordinary, until after 2 years of using it, wrong things are happening.
In the middle of 2017, I encountered many Blue Screen of Deaths with different error codes. especially when I often use my web browser.
Just how I was tweeting back in that year.

i got a BSOD with an error code i have never seen before: kmode_exception_not_handled.— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) July 29, 2017
The Blue Screen of Deaths were not the only issues. but there was also odd error messages occuring, mostly occurs for the Metro apps, such as 'Settings'.
(excuse my old, odd behavior.)

MY OS IS COMPLETELY DESTROYED pic.twitter.com/LQWd9f4e0o— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) July 6, 2017
Here's the most odd error message I have encountered while using Windows 10. It first occured after getting a BSoD and then after logging in.
The error message reads:
* Location is not avaliable
* C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop is not accessible.
* Access is denied.
With only one button reads ‘OK’.
After pressing ‘OK’, I cannot access the desktop at all. I can’t even open any program.
As shows with this tweet, these are the situations that occurs this error message.

ALRIGHT I WASTED 6546584658 MINUTES AND ALL I FREAKING DO IS TO DO A FULL SHUTDOWN IM DONE WITH WINDOWS 10— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) July 6, 2017
I can’t downgrade my operating system, as, I do have many programs and files as usual.
i want to downgrade so badly but the problem that im gonna waste my life reinstalling all of the programs i use— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) July 7, 2017
i currently have 45 programs installed— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) July 7, 2017
But then, In the 28th of October, 2017, I have downgraded to Windows 7. It was a fresh install.
windows 10 was better at updating pic.twitter.com/cary0U3ghR— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) October 28, 2017
I did not try out Windows 10 ever again, as there were many updates, features, and improvements, until, this year, I wanted to try it out again, after I tried out dual booting.
since i really loved the new features and updates in the windows 10 may update, why not i upgrade my windows 8.1 embedded (industry pro) operating system and try it out? pic.twitter.com/0alD2EnoQK— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) May 31, 2019
The experience was, well, kind of alright.
here it is! pic.twitter.com/7u9wqXa1R4— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) May 31, 2019
I guess I did not mention this while I was tweeting, but, the operating system's type is 64-bit. Which, makes the experience difficult suddenly. I can't even use my web browser frequently, and there were slowness.
After a few months of using Linux as my secondary operating system, I wanted to try out Windows 10 again this year, but the system type of it is 32-bit.
i don't know if i could do that today, or not, but i wanted to try out windows 10 on my computer again, but the operating system is in 32-bit instead of 64-bit.— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) August 6, 2019
i can do that only by formatting my linux partition and installing in it.
i cannot create more than 4 partitions tho!!
backing up the entire home folder! pic.twitter.com/fkPuwXa5fF— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) August 6, 2019
it detected!! pic.twitter.com/m6MSwgaD3Q— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) August 6, 2019
it's windows 10 (again, 32-bit this time)!! pic.twitter.com/hL0jKn5tq3— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) August 6, 2019
And, suprisingly, everything is alright in it!
The preformance is okay, I can use my web browser frequently, I can run Metro apps with no problems (but, some apps like 3D Viewer and Paint 3D lag. They may be unsuitable for my legacy hardware.)!
still trying out windows 10 with the 32-bit system type. nothing odd is happening still!— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) August 6, 2019
There was a few limitations, such as that my hardware not meeting the requirements for captures on Game bar, and the Windows Sandbox not being avaliable.
what's the reason though??— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) August 6, 2019
i'm curious! pic.twitter.com/eunak9QK9A
aw, i thought the specs will not matter!— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) May 31, 2019
well, i guess that's also because i cannot install a windows 8.0+ virtual machine manually too. pic.twitter.com/273G02IMk9
I stayed using it for more than a day, and honestly, It's like as I'm using my main operating system.
i never thought i can love windows 10 as much as i love the other supported versions of windows after a few days of trying it out. but there i am! ⊞— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) August 9, 2019
even windows 10 can properly wake up my computer, unlike windows 8.1, it either takes a huge time to wake up, or it doesn't at all!— ⊞ Ziad❢ ⊞ (@Ziadey) August 9, 2019
it's like windows 10 supports legacy hardware more.
