    Well, I don't think Windows 10 has really fixed anything. Desktop wise I feel the menu is horrible, no separation of Legacy and Metro apps, you are unable to change text size, unable to arrange them, etc.. I am not at all happy how the tiles behave, nor am I fond of the overall aesthetics of it.

    Yes, it is Windows with a menu, just not a very nice one. I like almost everything else about it, but would be much happier with a Win 7 menu and able to switch to Metro as in Windows 8.

    And I am really confused as to why the taskbar is transparent but the menu itself is not, I don't understand the reasoning in that? Maybe future versions will address all these things.

    An after thought:
    I think it would be great if they had a Windows 7 Menu, with a toggle that opened and closed the tile menu. That would be sweet.
    What I find odd, is that many of us who also post on Windows 8 Forums seemed to sing the praises of Windows 8.1 especially. They couldn't understand why a lot of users were flocking to Start Menu replacements and hating Windows 8. Jimbo loved it on his Surface, for example. But now, some of these same people are saying Windows 10 is a must release for Microsoft, citing Microsoft pushed too much change on Joe Average with Windows 8 and the Start Screen. But wait, I thought you said there was nothing wrong with the Start Screen and users should just adapt.

    Where are the major changes I'm supposed to be really excited about?

    Hi there

    That's the whole point of the technical feedback so Ms can "adjust" things before release - they'd be better though at reading these forums than trawling through 100,000's of email etc.
