I have zero issue with you using any OS that you want to and helping the seniors that you help using what ever OS they want to use. Still not uncivil, IMO. My only question is why rag on an OS that you don't plan on using??
What I hate on W10 is that everything is so BIG. This is ridiculous, they're designing the system thinking about touch only, fat fingers. The mouse/keyboard experience is ruined and to match it all the UI is UGLY, plain simple UGLY!

In no way was 7 just XP.

I think Microsoft may eventually provide a revision, or fuller visual design for Windows 10, because many people are very put off by the design of release Windows 10, and for some people it is a complete barrier to accepting Windows 10.

All you "like minded" all had a chance just as we all did to join the Insiders program to voice our feedback. Through the months MS developed 10 to a point of RTM build. How'd that go for you? Unfortunately not too well for you the way you see things I see. MS must and will have their way with WinRT in order to survive in today's and future markets. I think it to be rather ingenious the way they're going about it. I feel that's the main point we all need to understand.
Once again you neatly seperate yourself from others as if you are a "chosen one" for a particular mission. So, therefore, those in favor of the new direction are not "Windows loyalists"? Hmm....Sounds to me like a judgement call.We Windows loyalist keep guiding Microsoft to stick with "what worked". They best listen or they will be selling a lot more Windows 7 OEM disks to manufactures.
IMO, for my use and others that commented likewise it is great and indeed greater yet with 8.1.1. Yes, admittedly 8/8.1 didn't sell as well as MS might have wished, but they didn't loose money on it either. Nor did they have to rewrite a lot of the code still present in 10, which is a lot of their cost in development. Looks to me like they basically slapped training wheels on 8.1, defaulted it to boot to desktop, which BTW was an 8.1 option, and called it 10.I have to laugh at the folks who told me how great Windows 8 was and that there was no need for a Start Menu. They were so adamant about that, it was crazy! Now they all are eating crow.
Pray tell "eating crow" over what? No loss to me and many others for those that may have stuck with 7 and not seeing the genious we saw in 8/8.1. MS continues to make money on 7 in the Enterprise enviroment, so no skin off their noses there either.
"Mavericks"? OMG you're simply relentless at categorizing people, placing them in boxes, and standing in judgement. Sounds like another historical Inquisition. How about we let free people choose freely for themselves what their own computer experience will be? I think that to be a Modern idea rather than remaining in the Dark Ages. Simply let people try 10 out for themselves. If they don't like it MS left the option to roll it back.I would guess that you not only look out for your own system satisfaction but for others as well. The mavericks just want something to play with, with no regard to the masses. That's just fine but to shrug off smart observations by people who care about other people's computer experience is just plain silly.
The market will cast it's vote just as it did with 8/8.1 or any other OS for that matter. Yes, MS took a step back, saw the problem of "unfamiliararity" and "learning curve" with 8/8.1, slapped training wheels on it, and called it 10.
That's the way I see for what it's worth.
Anyone in the know would've learned by now that for the most part Enterprise doesn't upgrade to the latest OS release. Those with XP are upgrading to 7 or 8.1. Those that upgraded to 7 or 8.1 already will most likely remain there until all the kinks are worked out of 10. Nothing new really.
Last, but not least, and more so to answer your first point of success of 10, it seems to be off to a good start. Not much on the Net yet, but I found this.
