I finally got Windows 10, about a week ago. I figured, since I'm stuck in the house for who knows how long, I will probably need it. Long story short, OMG, I HATE IT! I'll save you my boring complaining and list just ONE reason, so far, why Windows 10 sux.

One of my favorite things about WinPoker is that you can run simulations with it, and at a pretty good pace, too.

So I put WinPoker on my new Windows 10, ran a few sims, and here's the story.

One million hands, on Window XP, a little over 10 MINUTES. Not bad.

On Windows 10, the same one million hands, 26 MINUTES!!! Omg.

Windows 10, SUX!!! What a piece of junk.

Right click the Winpoker icon and hit properties. Turn on compatibility mode and select Windows XP.

I doubt it will make a difference but itís worth a try.

I checked mine and a million hands took 20 min, which I don't believe is any slower than it was.

ETA: I tried running in compatability mode with XP service pack 3 and it was noticably slower.
