Well I finally took the plunge and upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 10. I must say I'm impressed! For once, Microsoft listened to their users and went back to things that worked instead of adding new things that don't work!
The "touch screen" type desktop is gone, the start bar and menu are back, you can actually find things in the menus again, the stupid "pretty rounded corners" are gone, most of the "transparent" stuff is gone.... basically, they took things back to WinXp with better technology (it actually works)!
I too really like Win 10 vs. 7 or 8, but I don't give MS much credit.... Win 10 is what Win 7 was supposed to be! They still pushed two versions on us and let users do a lot of "testing" before fixing everything. If they'd have listened instead of pushing their ideas the first time it wouldn't need fixing. Of course Ubuntu (Linux) did the same thing and pushed that awful Cimmaron interface on users. At least there was always the option to use something else, which many (including me!) did...With MS you were stuck with what they gave you most of the time, or changing was only done with some difficulty. I still don't like the fact that settings and such are still a bit harder to find than with XP, but that's at least partially due to being so much more familiar with XP.
