    I've played around with it. They probably have a winner on their hands this time. It's crazy how fast it is, it is super slick looking, and it does the metro thing right for desktop usage this time. Multiple desktops is also useful. The final version will be better than 8.1, and also 7.

    It looks like an old MySpace page.

    I'm running windows 7 and managed to get the interface to almost look like windows 98 so I'm happy.

    I'm just excited that Windows 8 gets upgraded along with it. Windows 8 is amazing under the hood, I'm glad Microsoft is giving the users what they want in terms of the experience this time.

    I've been using Windows 8 since it came out, all you need is to download a program called shell, and you get the start bar back, and the main desktop loads up first. It's funny how people rely solely on Microsoft to upgrade windows features. Windows 8 is great in a lot of ways, they just went retarded with the metro shit, and no start bar.

    I'm waiting to see something compelling in Win10 that Windows 8.0 + StartIsBack doesn't already give me.

    I don't need ugly fischer-price tiles on my start menu - or anywhere near my desktop - that launch watered down, feature-deprived phone apps. I understand that Microsoft REALLY wants a me-too app store ala Android/Apple, and like Win8 they still believe that their vast installed base of desktop users will be the Metro Store's shortcut to relevance that their lousy and unpopular mobile devices haven't been able to provide, but I really don't give a shit.

    I mean, no offense to Nemo, but look at this start menu. Its schizophrenic with those random tiles to the right. I know it can be cleaned up and there's probably even auto-arrange, but average users will probably have it looking as pictured - the kind of people that store all their documents on the desktop (you know the ones).

    Since business and enterprise flat out rejected Metro in Win8.x, this hybrid start menu with metro tiles is Microsoft saying "can I just put the tip in?" Fortunately I *think* you can completely disable all Metro crap from the start menu. And I don't think Microsoft has a choice but to provide that option, as they can't afford to have Biz/Enterprise skip another Windows iteration.

    I agree. And the success of Windows 10 will greatly help Windows Phone, which I think is the slickest phone OS on the market.

    If you're an IT guy, Windows 8 is a steaming pile of shit.
