  5. Hi

    The funny thing is that the massive upgrade from 8, so large that it had to skip 9 and go to 10 looks just like Windows 7. LOL

    But that's why I like it, I always said that what they needed was to improve 7, not change to something completely different and I think they finally figured that out.

    The way I see it Windows 8.1 Update should have been named Windows 9.

    In my opinion their was some things Microsoft wanted to do.
    1. Try very hard to improve on W-7.
    2. To get as far away from W-8 as they could.
    3. Make improvements to do both.
    4. Nine doesn't go over well in Germanic languages. (Nine = No)
    5. Show to the public that Microsoft has started listing to the public and will try to make W-10 suite the needs and desires of the masses on several different hardwares. Portable and non-protable. Touch screen and non-touch screen. Users choice.
    6. W-10 name is use to guide our thinking to not just another operating system but a whole new design that will be adjustable to suite the needs of the owner and hardware not just the SOS with a different number.

    To me this new attitude Microsoft has came from new management.
    Listing to their customers will serve them well.

    I guess some haven't figured out that 10 is basically 8.1 with a new screen door on the front.

  11. MS still has over a year to make changes. I was a Win8 preview user from day one. What I started with and what ended up being the retail project had some substantial changes. No way MS is done with WinX yet.

    So was I. What major changes in 8? The basic template layout was made. Boot to the new Start Screen instead of the desktop without the Start Menu, the Modern UI with Charms, Store, and apps. They may have added or changed little features here and there, but the basic layout was the same. If you are speaking of the major changes that 8.1 brought then that's a different thing. Still didn't bring back the Start Menu, though.

    Bottom line is that MS released the 10 Preview "template" out there and it contains Modern. I'm pretty sure they won't and can't afford to give it up due to there attempt to infiltrate the mobile market. They compromised by bringing the Start Menu back which is what I meant about the new screen door. The ability to boot to desktop remains, but also the option to boot to Start Screen remains, although greyed out for now.

    So far looking at the top ten wishes of the feedback app there are really not any requests for a major change. But, yes, we have a while to go yet.
