Greg, it must be a lot easier to use on a surf board than a laptop

Really? I prefer 8.1 & 10, 7 is getting a bit long in the tooth.
Umm Hmm - I actually love Vista (once it's patched up) because it has an XP-like taskbar with Quick Launch. I never cared for combined and pinned icons. Plus I like Windows Mail, and 7 has no integrated mail client.

I have come to like 8.1. To me Windows 10 so far is "meh!"

Well sometimes I could disagree with that. I want to be able to have access to the classic desktop should I desire. That's no biggie. It's just a case of removing visual styles (and the classic desktop DOES exist in Windows 8x and 10 TP).

I understand users liking an interface they've become accustomed to and wanting to stay with it. Why is that a bad thing? How is change actually beneficial in that respect?

Jody - You know you can add Quick Launch to Win 7, Win 8 and Win 10 don't you? See this link: Guided Help: Enable the Quick Launch bar in Windows 7

Yes I do recall trying that. Though I recall the icons in Quick Launch looking oddly small, compared to how it was implemented in XP and Vista. Of course, enabling the Desktop toolbar (provided I have similar shortcuts) provides a good enough experience.

Some MS person told me that I had to sign up to UserVoice to give feedback (without using the App).

I guess that means any feedback I post at WIP won't be assessed.

I saw people complaining (on WIP) that when they tried to use the Feedback App their accounts were changed to "Report to MS" accounts.

When I tried it a few weeks ago it definitely looked like that was what was going to happen, so I "bugged out".

IMO, it is despicable and unacceptable that they are constantly trying to force/trick people into using "Report to MS" accounts.

While they obviously lean on us some to push MS Accounts - so their elusive store may someday be busy selling apps or sky space - by making it so much more convenient to sign in via MS Account that we stop fighting it as I did recently with some satisfaction, I think they really are gung ho to get all the TP feedback they can and are spending a fortune to process it in meaningful ways.

Hopefully this will work better than the exobites of telemetry we were told at my first MVP Summit was they only feedback they wanted on Windows 8, and which I only found out three Summits later took no notice of how many 3rd party Start menus were installed. That they're hearing this in plain language instead of raw bits may make a difference. They certainly were engaged and receptive in the sessions with TP Product Team at Summit, sessions we never had for 8. I'm really optimistic for the first time in years.

I have to admit at first I pretty much used a gmail account and a wrong password to get to a local account option

But yea I don't like even the concept of attaching/ connecting in any default way to a Microsoft account at computer login,
If that's what power users are ? that isn't me but have fun with it whom ever enjoys that type of thing
I for one despise popup messages and most of this is nothing but messengers on steroids

It took me a little while to get used to the feedback app popping up
