Funny I prefer to think of it as let people who want to use features to their personal preference and let others that do not want to use them or even have them installed have their personal preference,
Both sides win
I know outlandish :/

When Windows 8 first came out the big discussion was lack of choice on how you could set up your computer.

Windows 10 is to a degree the same thing. At this time during the building stage we really don't know all the choices we will have or not have in Windows 10.

We are still in the wait and see stage with Windows 10. I do believe that their will many new things in Windows 10 that many will like.
When Windows 10 is done I will decide whether I like it or not.
If I don't like it I just won't use it.
If i like it I will be Windows 10 fan boy just like I am with Windows 7.
I'm in no hurry; I can wait.

I have lived all my life without Windows 10, I can wait a few months more until it's finished and ready for prime time.

I use Windows 7 at work and support a 400 pc fleet with 7 machines and XP machines. Currently fazing out the XP machine's and only have 40 to go. I have Windows 8 on my personal machine and it's alright but 7 is the most powerful OS I've ever used. I look forward to seeing the final product of 10 and may upgrade when it comes out from 8.1.

Now you're talking my language! The main fail on the MS side then was how they were going about trying to work out a new multi-platform OS without first taking into consideration how Vista had bridged a gap where 8 didn't. Appearance! With Vista you saw Classic or Aero while 8 simply brought in Metro without Aero being an automatic negative.

Then you add in how 8 turned out to be a stripped down OS with the main beef being the lack of the all too common since 95 Start menu plus other features that have been in there since XP like WMP which had been optional but available with Vista and 7 having it included. It immediately got a bad light. 8.1 was some correction being made there but not enough.

We're still not out of the woods with 10 yet since it's still in Preview form not RTM quite yet. That will prove to be the maker or breaker in the long run while the return of the Start menu should make it quite a bit more appealing for most. For the many the questions that will remain are what it will be bringing in as well as what it could be taking away.

With 8.1 you had the option for arriving at the desktop and not the Metro start screen brought in while 10 has two types of downloads being mobile or pc in obviously in both x86, x64 flavors. Again the Start menu will be the one item of interest to stand out. Other then the renaming of things like All apps compared to All programs the bloat of tiles extending outward to the right could prove to be an annoyance while the bulk will take that over Metro only.

I'm also in the "wait and see" group ... but i'll probably update some of my OS's just to keep current and learn ...

I've been using WTP as a VM, but not spending much time with it, a VM is not the same experience as a bare metal install for me ...

I installed Classic Shell 4.2 beta in the latest WTP and i'm really liking what i see.
It lets me use WTP "like W7" so i can find things easily/quickly.
It also lets me switch to the WTP start screen in 1 click, so i can play there.

For this old bag-a-bones, i think that's cool, and can help me with the "learning curve transition"

Slow ring for me then if it breaks VMs. I'm not too bothered about Spartan anyway so it's no hassle. Hopefully this time updating through Updates won't break all currently mapped network drives either.

Is Windows 10 similar to Windows 7?
I've heard that Win7 is a more developed version of the popular Win XP.

XP is a Model T compared to modern OS's.

Windows 10 is designed to adjust to whether you want a Desktop OS - or touch, tablet, phone or other hybrid. For the billion+ customers who MS raised on the desktop, it is a logical successor to Windows 7 so far and may even turn out to be better. Time will tell.

Hello guys, What was the worse OS that you have used? (not just windows) For me, it was Windows ME, to me it was just Windows 98 with some big updates. But I say that system restore was a good idea.
