I am just really excited for notifications (mail, facebook, twitter, skype etc...), missing feature that should have been in vista a few years ago.

From the referenced article the MS rationale for jumping to "Windows 10":
"He told me somewhat obliquely that it resonated best for what the company would deliver across the breadth of devices.".
Maybe they should have called it Windows 42.

Why is everyone making such a big deal over name. I can think of only one person the name affects, that would be John as he has to change the web site name. There was an OS named XP, and one named ME, and another named Vista, then there was 7 and then 8. What does a name have to do with anything? I was not and am not a fan of Windows 8/8.1, but there are those that are. I am not a fan of Soccer either, but millions are. so what? I am not so concerned with what the call it as I am with how it operates and will it fulfill my needs. That's what should be under discussion here, not the name. Personally, I could care less what they name it. Leave it as Windows Threshold, for all I care. I just want a good, efficient Desktop OS. That's all that really matters.

Agree, yet he just dealt with it, without any fuss either. Some could take a leaf out of his book.

It seems to me that it has been an effective marketing ploy (at the moment).

Calling it W10 instead of W9, has generated a lot of attention/discussion.

Improved Window Snap was on my wish list.

I could've used the setup that was shown in the video (2:1) a couple of weeks ago, when I was working on my project.

A personal view:
From a technical perspective of course the name means absolutely nothing. From a marketing perspective ($$$) it does mean something. That is why corporations will spend large amounts of money to protect their brand name. So the name change is at least a little intriguing.

Hi there

Obviously there are some diehards on this forum who are trashing it before they've even SEEN it -- same with Windows 8.1 -- most people probably rightly decided Windows 8 was a hideous digs dinner of a mess but windows 8.1 improved it significantly -- and now Windows 10 has got the things most people wanted back in it - like the Start menu and re-sizeable windows for touch / metro apps what is the problem.

I LIKE the superior touch applications, the built in security system, the "Virtual" cd/dvd mounter and the general snappiness of W8.1 - and with the final improvements seen to be in Windows 10 what's there really NOT to like - it seems win 7 users have everything they asked for in the new OS.

At least let's SEE and TRY it before mouthing complaints against it.

If you want to continue using W7 -- nothing wrong with that - it's STILL a great OS -- but please keep OPEN MINDS and base complaints on REAL tests.

Cheers
jimbo
