    Edge does not integrate with the Taskbar for spawning new browser sessions

    This is a limitation of the "modern" platform. App store apps can't spawn more than one instance. They can host discreet separate windows frames that look like another instance, but it's not actually doing so.

    Free upgrade to Windows 10

    How Windows 10 works in an VM won't give you a real image. This is why I suggested a dual boot. Back to your question, reason 1: overall faster, smother, more responsive. Reason 2: increased security and updated hardware support (for example, Windows 10
    "knows" how to use newer hardware (CPU, motherboard built-in devices, etc) better and more efficiently than Windows 7. See tests on the internet. There are a lot of tests out there.

    Reason 3 (for me): the interface. I like Windows 10 interface much more than the one in Windows 7 (graphics, icons, all).

    I don't use modern apps or the store either. I do use OneDrive but I've been using it since before Windows 10...

    Windows 10: Windows Store to support more than modern apps

    That's going to be interesting to have Desktop apps get the same treatment as modern apps where you can directly download them from the Store. I wonder how licensing will work though...probably will be an updated requirement for those apps.

    Also going to be cool to see if they set up the Windows Store kind of like ebay storefronts where you can go through vendors and check their offerings and browse around. It would be REALLY neat if the merged the Xbox Music+Video Stores together into the Windows Store so it's all in one organized place. That I can see happening. Before Windows Phone 8.1, the Windows Phone Store by default had separate categories for the music store and video stores. I wish it were still like that and would go back to that.

    Neat!

    Antique Apps?

    Maybe they should change the name of Microsoft Store to Nile.com, Volga.com, or maybe Yangtze.com

    So they are basically moving everything to the store now? I would have thought that the whole point of Windows Store would be to centralize modern apps for both windows phone and Windows 8/10 modern apps.

    Hi there

    I rather dislike the whole "Store" concept -- I suppose then apps will have to have some sort of "official signature" on them or they won't install.

    People developing Freeware might be also hideously impacted by this - depending on the up front costs. I'm not sure also how big players like adobe etc will react if they have to insert "a middleman" --the store-- into their own offerings.

    I rather think the store will become outdated rather quickly unless it's maintained decently - or it will become 99% junk like the Google play store. Also I don't think we want apps from the store to "auto update" every 5 minutes -- I find that a mega problem with the ANDROID OS on a smart phone - you never know if a decent app is still going to work the next time you use it - or if it even LOOKS the same.

    Cheers

    Windows 10: Windows Store to support more than modern apps

    I don't mind the idea of everything in the store

    The only thing I hope doesn't happen is that desktop programmes from the store don't have to stick to much stricter rules than the non store versions
    This is what put me off using the store from the fruity company

    Freeware and open sourced software don't cost anything so therefore there aren't any costs to take a cut from. That's currently how it is in the Windows Store.
