    I will not change 7 but definitely will sacrifice my two 8s. :)
    I don't have any W8 series to sacrifice.

    Given how fast the W10TP previews have degenerated since b9841, I guess I'll be using W7 for a long time indeed.

    Paste Control Panel\All Control Panel Items into the Explore address field, hit Enter, and you get this:

    Don't need to paste anything. Simply change the setting in "View by:" from "Category" to either "Large icons" or "Small icons".

    I haven't seen anything in W10 that would make me abandon any of my current W7 or W8 systems in order to upgrade them to W10. I see W10 as different but not necessarily better.

    After W10 is released, if I were to build/buy a new system it will most likely have W10 on it but my current machines most likely will not be upgraded since there's no real value add.

    By the time these builds get down the road a bit I will be using/ tiring out classic shell and start8 not necessarily at the same time mind you but just to send a message to Microsoft if they insists on going about the start menu and customizations the way they have I'll be looking into every way to kill what I don't like

    Hmm, how would that get you to "All Control Panel Items" ??

    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 rest my case. You are #3 , the drive it into the ground type. So why are you even asking the question?

    I thought it was an interesting question to be discussed - independent of what I personally will do. I run about a dozen systems (Windows, Android and Linux) and I will certainly have one Windows 10. But with the info I have right now that would be out of academic interest - not because I absolutely need it.

    The question is really:" Where is the beef ".

    I installed Windows 7 back at this stage of development as well, and I remember these same comments. People just couldn't see why they'd switch away from XP, but could easily see why they'd switch from Vista. I can now, as I could then, see the appeal of sticking with what's comfortable over risking change.

    For me, however, I'm a first-adopter... Vista was the only home-PC version of Windows I've skipped since 3.1. (And only because I was broke at the time.) Yeah, it's led to some heartache over the years, with things like Millenium Edition and the awful UI that balanced out the performance enhancements of Windows 8. But, for me, I get bored stuck in the same OS for too long at a time.

    Ahh.. so the question isn't why YOU would want to upgrade, since you clearly don't want to.

    The question is why would anyone want to? And that's very different argument.
