    After a few days of use (tried earlier previews, but it has moved on since then) I am liking it now, seems a lot more response than 8.1 on my machine, stability and speed wise

    the only issue I seem to have is Cortana, it randomly stops working, clicking on it does nothing so have to kill it in taskmanager and then its fine

    other little issues I think are me just not fully understanding things yet

    plenty more to explore

    So a couple questions from those who are happy with it (without me having to check a bunch of threads)

    Is the theme with the spread out caption buttons (basically just the underscore/box/X shapes that I saw in the final betas) the one being used by default? Are there other visual styles that look like Windows 8.1, and can UXTheme be altered to allow third party themes yet?

    I take it that Control Panel has already disappeared?

    Thanks,

    the spread out buttons are still at the top

    theme wise to me its nothing like 8, its similar in style with the apps, but operates totally different, more like 7 with apps

    control panel is mostly still there, some things take you to the modern version in settings, anything specific you want me to check?

    Oh no worries, but thank you. So basically the Control Panel conversion is slowly on going. I just checked out DeviantArt, and there appear to be some XP looking styles, and even a Vista lookalike VS for Windows 10 RTM. My only concern is will these themes be quickly broken every single time a major Windows 10 update is downloaded.

    Not sure whats going to happen to 3rd party things if CP does eventually go away

    most things seem to be still in CP that I have seen, it's a bit like how win 8 worked, duplicated items in Settings and CP

    eg for default apps they want you to use the new settings app, but CP still has all this in it and defaults can be set from there
