Apparently a couple long-timers here don't know what the world "analogy" means.
Apparently someone wants to give them a lesson ? I think Wiki has that covered.
So yet again, in the midst of a crowded corner on a server, I will be right again about W10, just as I was about W8.
And they were singing, "bye, bye Microsoft pie in the sky...."
I don't have a Chevy to drive to a levy but can't predict any soon to be MS or Windows demise. They are moving in same direction all other OSes do and desktop computers with desktop only OS are moving to a minority status. Desktop computers are moving to same branch as mainframes were before PC. It will not take long when technology will provide much better performance for small, portable devices that can be paired with larger displays like smart TVs, projectors or even holograms, glasses with display etc.
Anybody trying to predict future based on temporary "Now" is bound to fail.
Dissapointed but not suprised. - Windows 10 Forums. And now this. What are you some kind of IT Pro forum-traveling preacher hell bent on getting “your gospel truth” across? Nothing gets my goat more than IT Pro “ilk” such as you that come on with nothing but your self-proclaimed truth attempting to get people riled up and construct a long thread with their responses. Trollers must have certain personality disorders such as arsonists have. They start a fire only to return to the scene to receive joy in watching the havoc they created.
IMO with your line of thinking most of the world would still be stuck using DOS with command line for God’s sake. I think you to be a hindrance to your clients rather than a help. You make money of Windows users, yet you come on bashing a new product you have potential to sponge yet more money off of. If anything you should be grateful that there are so many Windows editions. Wouldn’t that widen your client base? Or do you sit with your comfortable margin-sized client base in your ivory tower with your narcissistic-type attitude highly stressing to stick with Windows 7? It sure sounds that way with statements like “The last thing they want or need is a "new" learning curve” and “I am guessing that 75% of Windows 7 users around the world will convert back to W7 (PC users)”. Geez, man, will you please get a clue as to what MS has newly created and continues to hone with each build. In this case, would not your clients benefit from a familiar OS platform across all devices?
Human factors and ergonomics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Do you have a degree in ergonomics? If not, simply shut up about the new Start menu in 10 or bashing 8 with the introduced Start screen. If anything, MS has devised a way to navigate the system much quicker with the introduction of the new WinRT Starts to include tiles/live tiles. The new Start menu of 10 contains all the “fundamentals” and more. Included is to gain more personal important data at any given moment with the simple push of WinKey or Start flag. We’ll have a showdown at the OK Corral to see who draws the quickest: The Real Quality Boot Time of 8 Verses 7. You may include OS 10 as equivalent in that respect via Start menu default size (or larger), full screen option, or Tablet mode.
Last, but not least > In addressing your car analogy > BBC - Autos - Why do we use steering wheels instead of joysticks?. Perhaps a learning curve, but not impossible. Again, with your line of thinking we’d still be riding horses.
I feel you need to stop your madness. Unbelievable...

I found that when I did the upgrade install, it did indeed have lots of problems. So perhaps you'd get better experience with a clean install. After all the clean install is free too!
Disagree. I hate to admit it but Micro$oft actually won here. Love Windows 10.
