    I was able to clean up the Start Menu so it's now quite usable to me. Got rid of all the Modern stuff and pinned Control Panel, Devices, Windows Defender and the Run box. Not for everyone but it suits me fine.

    Nice pic (wallpaper). Did a photo similar about twenty years ago, albeit sadly it has disappeared along with my brain, hence could I trouble you for a copy. . .thanks if you reply. . .:)

    Quite nice so far.

    Some peculiarities with the virtual desktops though.
    With some applications, if you try to invoke another instance in another desktop, it will kick you back to the v-desktop that has that application open and open another one on top of it.

    When you are on another v-desktop, the thumbnails from other v-desktops hide at the bottom of the taskbar:

    That part's quite odd I found but I think that might be intentional though. The idea is to use the virtual Desktops as a means to keeping an X amount of windows open in one workspace. If you were to be opening up File Explorer again in a different VD, there's a likelihood you can lose track of what other File Explorer windows are open and make a mess of everything. It makes sense, but at the same time might cause some issues. I can see a scenario where I would have several File Explorer windows open running some copy actions between a few hard drives. But then I want to step away from that and add music to my Windows Telephone through File Explorer, whoops! Right smack dab in the middle of the copy actions between those hard drives and now have to shuffle around through windows I didn't want to shuffle around, or add more windows to the mess.

    I think I could get to like it. I didn't really miss the start menu. I don't use it a lot.

    What really got my goat was the flicking in to full screen "Modern" apps at the slightest excuse. Now that they run windowed on the desktop they are OK.

    Virtual desktops are a useful feature poorly implemented. What is wrong with the Linux approach of an icon on the task bar that shows you which desktop is active and click to change?

    Oh, very good to know as that was a concern of mine.
    Now about the Icons in the start menu... can they be changed to text...??

    So far.. Love it!!
    Made it my primary and I'm not going to turn back. Everything went fine when I did the update from Win8.1.
    All of my programs/apps are running just fine.

    No complaints from me.

    I think, there will be a totally new generation of HATERS.... The Touchscreen Lovers. Although Win 10 is designed for both UIs, I am sure there will be whinings from "touch fans".
