most Windows 8/8.1 users I've spoken to never use them and find ways to avoid them..
- why they should think that Windows 10 will be any different beats me..
if they could stick the engine into a decent desktop design, then they'd be on a sure-fire winner
at the moment it just appears to be a vehicle for Microsoft's vision of a future where you can
connect your kettle to the internet to find out if it's boiled the water for a cup of coffee yet..
- Windows 7 really is the king of desktops as far as MS goes..
Could you please enlighten me and tell what in this PC running Windows 10 is "as though it was a mobile phone"
I am quite clearly using a very powerfull desktop operating system, the screenshot above shows how I am multitasking at the moment. Installing the latest build on a virtual machine, chatting in Skype, browsing the forums while Netflix streams on the secondary display. You really think this could be done on a phone?
"The dreaded cloud"
! I am repeating myself here but once again, the only cloud in Windows 10 is the OneDrive synchronization and it only if the user especially allows it. By default it is not on. Funny how quite a many user with Google Drive or DropBox integrated in their Windows 7 think it is something else than having OneDrive in Windows 8 and later.
I have extreme difficulties to understand how this is "connecting my kettle to the Internet"
