    Mystere, I see what you are saying. But I am not that kind of shopper. I am quite happy with my 17 year old car here in the US and in Germany where I had to buy a new car because I cannot drive at night any more and the wife needed an automatic, I hate this new car. It has so many gizmos that I will probably never discover everything. The user manual has 560 pages with an additional 200 pages just for the radio,

    Give me my old stick shift car back that had 3 dials and did what I wanted and not what the car thinks is best.

    I agree, I have a simple car with a 5 speed stick and no gadgets that can break. It's a 2008 Accent and it rocks.

    LOL, your car is young, 10 years younger than my old car when I sold it. It was 16 years old. This is how it looked the day I sold it - like new and it had only 40K miles.

    I'm with Wolfgang - there's too much fluff in W10 and nothing I need that isn't in W7. I didn't like the new start menu but now they've 'improved' it to make it worse by adding the alphabet - as if having 'apps' in alphabetical order wasn't enough !
    Wait until I add my 60 odd programs to the list - scroll city here I come.

    The question I ask myself is why would I give up W7 and go with W10 on my desktop. .
    Answering for myself, I definitely would NOT update to 10 on existing hardware if I had any intention of getting new hardware prior to 2020 when MS support from 7 officially ends (if I recall correctly). I'd wait till I bought new hardware if for no other reason than I don't want to go through total reinstallation and reconfiguration of dozens of programs and settings for marginal improvements. If you get new hardware, you have to do that anyway, so OK in that case.

    If and when I got the new hardware, I almost certainly would go with 10 due to the longer period of support looking into the future--not because of functionality, doodads, boot speed, etc. If, magically, 7 and 10 were supported at the same level until the same future date, I'd probably stay with 7 barring some as yet unknown over-powering reason to go to 10.

    Just as the typical $200 plus current Intel CPUs are strong enough for me for any of my anticipated tasks, Win 7 is "good enough" for my usage pattern per se, but ultimately the period of support comes into play and that would at some point be the determining factor.

    I'd put 10 on existing hardware only if it provided some functionality I considered highly significant--equivalent to, say, the difference between dial up and high speed Internet, the difference between Windows 3.1 and Windows 7, or the difference between arithmetic by pencil and paper versus a $5 calculator. I haven't heard of anything remotely near that.

    This version has targeted how inapt the start menu is with listing apps like Microsoft wants to list them
    Now nobody objects to seeing a list alphabetically but listing stuff like they have is just comical,
    And it's stuck so what is there to do,
    Install start8 and hope Microsoft notices it or possibly classic shell

    Let Microsoft take notes of what these third party product do for users.

    I guess I don't see the start as an issue because I rarely/never used it in previous OS and I will continue to rarely use it,i use taskbar and toolbars and icons on my desktop
