The problem Bunnyj might have with Linux. Is setting the permission for some folders but that depends on the distro. I know I had to change mine home folder. I still have some issue with that. Sometime software won't install, that can happen with windows as well. I was real surprised how close the desktop guis resemble windows.
In some ways the Linux GUI file managers (like Caja) are better than File/Windows Explorer.
The ones that I've used have Tabs and Split view.
I've never come across that issue.
I have some files in my Home directory that are owned by "root".

I couldn't give two hoots what others like or don't like ... that's their business.
For my business I have found the W7 alphanumeric start menu the most efficient and space saving. I think it's reached the peak of efficiency potential. I never use apps, so to me they're an unnecessary encumbrance, wasting space and GBs of HD.
I use StartIsBack in W7, and if I couldn't get similar in W10, or be able to modify the standard start menu to emulate it, it would be a game stopper for me.

I am sorry but this discussion has nothing to do with the original intention this thread was setup for. Linux is not a Windows 10 feature, nor is it included in Windows 10 as an add in feature. As to using it over Windows 10 I would guess that at least 95% of the folks here on the t0's could care less about Linux and its workings. . .
I am not a big Linux fan, only because there way to many different versions, even growing up in Unix programming world, I find it difficult to get answers. The problem is to much information, everyone has a way of doing it but, it may not apply to your version.
The only Linux version I was successful with was Zorin, and their forums and developers are extremely helpful. Since it is modeled somewhat after Windows, I thought I would start there to try and learn it. Perhaps I will take a look at Mint.
I think greater strides in unification, are happening in the Linux world, and business is certainly interested
this articles sheds some light on business and Linux
Even with all of that I think it will be years, if ever Linux, really becomes mainstream (although Ubuntu is very popular)
I'm with Wolfgang/Leh et al... (btw... why don't I have a rep option..? just the report icon showing..)
Linux has a myriad of customisation options including that for start menu, via applets...
In the end, I might play with a distro of Linux again but it will be in a VM.
