I used windows 7 for the entire time, it was great, all square. I loved it.

I tested windows 8 and rejected, it did not suit me. I did not hate it, just did not use it.

I tested windows 10 and did not look back to windows 7 anymore. With some earlier builds I have some disliking, only from the part of the GUI, but the last two versions made me completely happy.

The "windows aero" theme based on glass transparency? Initially for a few days.

Aero includes many other things in its definition other than the theme only. Like ...
Win+Tab action;
Live thumbnail preview on taskbar;
Aero Peek;
Aero Shake;
Aero Snap;
and a couple more features. All those are nicely accessible if a non-transparent theme is applied, and my theme was Placebo. No glass.

All are there other than the "windows aero" theme. And the desktop environment in windows 10 is good enough than windows aero theme applied in 7.

We discussed on the same thing earlier too, but you are not understanding. Resistance to change? OK, dont change then, but dont spread that meaningless resistance. Let the people try and decide.

I have never hated a operating system. My hate is much to important to waste on a operating system. I have some choices and I like choices.

Windows 7, Windowds 8.xx or Windows 10. Or I can use them all if I so desire.

I went from XP-Pro to Windows 7 just to try out Windows 7. I like it so I stuck with it.
In a couple of weeks I felt comfortable with Windows 7 and just started learning more.

I checked out Windows 8 when it first came out and didn't care for it. No big deal. Many like it and use it.

I haven't made my mind up about Windows 10 but there is no big hurry. I'm not going anywhere and Windows 10 will be around for a while.

The learning curve from XP to Windows 7 was easy for me. I hope going from Windows 7 to Windows 10 will also be easy. I really don't need headaches.

If I wait a little while the Tutorials in the Ten Forum will be built up and will probable answer most of my questions.

Honestly... all the annoyances from W8 are gone in here, Windows 10 seems to be better in terms of productivity, at east, the start menu now works very similar to what W7 was... search works like it did, and finally, FINALLY, they restored some shortcuts, like the one on the network icon leading you directly to the private/public network switch config, something missing in Windows 8...

The only gripe I see is that Start seems to act... weird sometimes... there are times it won't show even if you click several times... that and the full screen start menu... why did they change the way it worked on Windows 8? I mean... the way it works alike-Windows 7, it's nice and steady... but the full screen thing... is just SO pointless, misses funtionality, and there is SO MUCH wasted space, even for tablet users. MS guys never hit the spot it seems...

Also, is just me or biuld 10130 is the most unstable thing in their whole time? even explorer crashes when loging off... why? 10074 was already there, this feels like a step backwards... I really hope they fix this, because I have better hopes with this than I had with Windows 8...

Yes, they need to be applied. Either by replacing system files, or, using Theme Manager.

I did not learn new things, but some habits needed a little re-adjustment.

10130 is running rock solid here. If it gives some issues to you, perform a clean reinstall. I had issues with one previous build, but a clean reinstall solved everything.

Clean installed twice (I don't believe in upgrades...), manually creating all partitions using diskpart (system, windows and another extended/logical for data) first using audit mode to install all stuff and then booting into OOBE (practicing with this what I normally do with new installs), in there, I had to hard reset the system because it never loaded the desktop the first time.

The second time was the same, except I skipped Audit mode and went straight to normal install entirely. In both cases, I got a critical error as soon as desktop was loaded, rebooted and seemed to work, but explorer crashes everytime you shutdown/reboot/logoff.

Could it be that I'm testing on a Virtual Machine instead of a real PC?... Weird thing since 10074 didn't exhibit this issues...
