Windows 10

Windows 10 has only seen limited deployment by early-adopters on our campus thus far.  Whilst we've got some experience supporting it, it isn't as comprehensive as our experience with earlier versions. In addition, only a subset of applications the University uses have actively been tested for Windows 10 compatibility.

Like all new releases of Windows, there is usually a time delay before hardware manufactuers, software vendors, and support staff catch up. This means that early adopters can always expect to experience some problems. Sometimes it may not be possible to resolve these problems — particularly if Windows 10 is not supported by an upstream software vendor. Some software will simply never be supported on Windows 10 (this happens when the upstream vendor has lost interest).

Currently residence printing is known to be problematic with Windows 10.  There is a manual work-around available.

For these reasons, we are unable to consider Windows 10 fully supported on the Student Network — there are circumstances in which it is likely that it simply cannot be made to work properly at Rhodes. If this is a problem for you, you should consider either downgrading your computer, or not making use of this service.
