Not long now people
My level of excitement is going up as we get closer to the 30th.
I hope that it looks better than 8 and you don't have to use all kind of tweaks to make it usable.
Windows 98 was the most customisable version of Windows that I remember using.
Each subsequent version removed various customising options.
Microsoft never scolded anyone about anything.
They never assumed EVERYONE was on touch devices, why would they even bother improving multimonitor support if that were the case? And if they wanted a 30% app tax, they would have done a better job in doing so from the very beginning. The overwhelming majority of Windows apps are free. The only thing they'd get anything from the Store are games.
There was no start menu code in the CP nor DP.
