Windows 10 cannot come soon enough. I wouldn't say 8 is as bad as many people say that it is, but it definitely needs improved upon. Like... where is my start button?

My only question is if there is any news on when Windows 10 will be released.


Mid 2015

This is a little hard to phrase, but do you feel it has the old simplistic feeling that windows had? (Not concerning quality, I'm sure the graphics are better, it is a little faster, etc.) Can you say it is less confusing on desktop/laptop than windows 8, and how comfortable is it in general?

Hopefully I got my points across :blush:


I'm sorry to say that it feels almost exactly like 8. Albeit now there's a start menu.

Hopefully they make it simpler to get rid of that god awful app screen, I never liked that they tried to cram a smartphone idea into a compute OS. I loved 7, hate 8, but put up with it because I don't have the time to reset my OS back to 7, nor the space to store all my files. I hope it turns out more like 7 than 8. Did they make it so that the search bar isn't behind that grotesque app screen? Any major new features, good ideas not fully implemented in Win10(preview has most features I guess, maybe?)?

Oof! That's not good.

I still may get it though, I'm more or less used to this windows 8 lifestyle

The Start Screen is now optional (That's the app screen you mentioned)

Search bar is where it is on Win7

Feels way more like 8 than 7, to my dismay. Multiple desktops is the only new feature worth noting, and I don't even use it.

Here's a picture just so that everyone knows what it looks like. I'm going to Taco Bell real fast, I'll be back to answer any more questions anyone has on the OS.

Did they say how much they intend to improve Win10 from the version you have, as in is it more like some of the features are set(like those you mentioned above) or are they liable to just be scrapped entirely and changed for something else? I like the idea that they are bringing back some of the 7 features. Also thanks for answering some questions on this, it is hard to find good information on these previews this early generally.

10, however, does NOT improve on everything 8 is. The reason being that everything 8 is is crap, and improving on crap only gives you a different kind of crap.


*snorts*

tbh i couldn't figure out 8. So I just went with a macbook lol. Haven't regretted it one bit either.


I'm right there with you

Did you find Windows 9 hiding somewhere?

So far, would you say Windows 10 is at least on-par with vista or 7?
My current computer is on 7 and I refuse to buy a new computer with 8. I will probably need to replace this computer soon, but when I heard about 10 I started to think I should try to hold out a bit longer.

I'm not sure how much they plan on changing from here to the consumer version.

I've searched around the computer and not found any signs of Cortana.

Windows 10 is NOT on par with 7, not in this version. Things are subject to change, but as it stands Windows 10 is just a slightly improved Windows 8. I would get a new computer now and "Upgrade" to Windows 7. If you don't know how to do that, feel free to contact me.

It looks like Microsoft wants to move in the right direction, but they just can't get themselves to drop metro and the apps. As long as they both exist, Windows 10 is going to be just as bad as Windows 8.

EDIT:


EDIT 2: I downloaded League of Legends and played a short custom game to see how it ran. Does not look like there's a difference from how it runs in Windows 7.

It's exactly the same as Windows 8. You have the option of a local account, but you will not be able to use apps without a Microsoft account. I wouldn't care less about apps honestly, but I wanted to get the full experience since I'm testing this out.

I guess I'll be "that guy".

Ahem, I love Windows 8 (8.1 to be more accurate). I respect people's preferences, but to say Windows 8 is crap, is bull.

9 shouldn't be crying. 9 was exactly what we wanted. 9 was too good for us. 9 would have ruined the future of MS. No one would have wanted to leave 9.
