Windows 10 users or future Windows 10 users are confused. On the one hand, Microsoft keeps pushing them to upgrade using various tricks: upgrade pop-up windows that continue to appear after you refuse to update, or the shifty X button that takes your no for a yes. On the other hand, manufacturers are warning users that their drivers and products do not support Windows 10. NVIDIA drivers did not support Microsoft’s latest OS at the beginning, but thanks to updates and various workarounds, users can fix this issue.

Samsung is now joining the club of the manufacturers that suggest users refuse to upgrade their OS. The company clearly explains that its drivers are not designed for Windows 10 and various incompatibility issues could result in many errors and crashes.

Honestly speaking, we don’t suggest installation of Windows 10 to any Samsung laptop or PC and we are still coordinating with Microsoft regarding to this matter.

The Drivers that we have on our website are not yet compatible to the latest version of Windows. What we usually recommend is to keep the current Windows version and we’ll update you once the Windows 10 have no more issues on any Samsung laptops and computers or even monitors.

There’s good news in all this: the two companies are well aware of the issue and are working to make Samsung’s drivers compatible with Windows 10. However, Samsung has not offered any information regarding dates when the compatibility update could be rolled out.

Taking into account all the changes Microsoft is bringing to Windows 10, Samsung’s drivers could become Windows 10 compatible even as late as after the second Redstone wave. Such a hypothesis is worrying because analysts expect Redstone to trigger a mass-upgrade to Windows 10.
