    Ok, Jeff. You know what I'm talking about. Real work.

    I'll add that I did this roughly 3 nights a week for 3 to 5 hours after coming home from work in the field and Saturdays and some Sunday afternoons for 20 years. Before that it was performed manually as in paper and pencil/pen. :)
    I recall when I was on some projects working 60-70 hours a week, yuck! Oh and no overtime.. how nice. And I loved the "early up". Testing changes to online systems where you had to be in work at 7AM on Sunday for what took about 1 hour at most. Super YUCK!! But when we got dial in connection to the systems it wasn't as bad.

    So, why are you rushing to see the end of a desktop Explorer interface?
    Old tech, inefficient, ugly, and unsecure just to name a few. Have you heard of a virus or adware in a Modern Store app? I haven’t.
    The anti-Linux statement applies here; "no one is bothers to write malware for something with a market share that low."

    Most of the real computer-related work that is performed, is done on the desktop (not on phones and/or tablets).

    After all, if we examine Windows 8x's lack of success, it came from the many (albeit wrongly) disenchanted users made to feel that the Explorer shell was being relegated to history?
    “Albeit wrongly” is correct. Most tech press writers and most IT pros knocked it down long before release, so the rest of the crowd follows just as they did with Vista. Yes, Vista was buggy and had a lot of problems at first, but given time it turned out to be a good OS. By then it’s too late. The bad rep stayed with it just as with 8.x because “they said so”. Good grief. There’s two professions that aren’t really “multitasking users” either.
    Ordinary people don't read the "Tech Press".

    IT Pros (who you disparage) are they very people who have to keep everything running.
    Their opinions are more useful than fashionistas & marketers, when it comes to computers/software.

    So it shows that as an "anti-desktop" campaigner, you are on an island with only a few other people.
    I wouldn’t say 15% of the PCs on the planet is “on an island with only a few other people”. Seriously? Don’t forget all the tablets and phones it runs on also.
    It is compared to the 85% of desktop users who run something else.

    Throwing in phones and tablets makes it worse, as that market is almost entirely made up of Android and Apple stuff.

    What is the W8 series market share in those markets?
    Operating system market share

    I will definitely get Win10. I already use it as the primary OS on a MacAir 2013 via Bootcamp, because I can. I have this self built i5 desktop dual booting with Win10 and run it in a virtual machine on both my Surface Pro 3 and this Win 8.1 desktop, to learn about it and inform my organisation. I expect that it will be a free, or nearly free, upgrade for Win8 if not Microsoft are completely reading the market wrong. I love my Lumia 920 but it is getting long in the tooth so Windows Mobile 10 will keep me on it, or I might instead go to the rumoured WP 1030 when it comes out

    I think you are dreaming. The priority for MS is to move the XP and 7 users, not the 8.1 users.

    Not read the whole thread but I'll vote Yes, that is if the price is right, if not I'll have to stay with this 8.1 Notebook till I get another machine with it installed.

    As Windows a 7 user, the way things are, I'm staying put; Windows 10 doesn't do it for me!

    Windows 7 does all that I need with an effective Start Menu which Windows 10 still lacks, IMHO.

    I think we'll have to wait until RTM times to really be able to judge whether 10 will float out boat. They mucked up too much with the recent updates to get a real picture of the final product. But I am sure they will fix that. Another Vista or 8 disaster is not in their interest.
