    Biased is much too strong a word to use for everyone and your statement is a bit unfair, especially to the folks in these forums.
    What's your favourite:
    • Colour?
    • Food?
    • Car Brand?


    Scam artists rely on their victim's conscious/subconscious biases.

    I have seen very few people within these forums whose ideas or opinions meet either of the above criteria.
    Really?

    I see various different camps on TenForums:
    • OS agnostic
    • Anti-Linux
    • Anti-Apple
    • Pro-Metro GUI
    • Pro-WIMP GUI

    Now, on the other paw, the statement below does meet the criteria:

    Microsoft, heed my words carefully, I'm the smartest man alive, your business success hinges on this. Make it smart. Make it efficient. Not the way it is in this preview release.

    There you go, the most detailed and honest Windows 10 review you will ever have read, and this is just a beginning.
    This guy is so full of himself that he cannot be anything other than biased.
    You guys obviously "don't get out much".

    My friend writes his blog articles in that exact same style (i.e. smart-mouthed know-it-all).

    I get out a lot.

    Back to topic, there are so many people with blogs today it's sort of silly. Just because someone has one doesn't mean that they're an expert on anything let alone Windows. Yes, they're allowed to have an opinion but they're thoughts should be based in facts.

    Facts are good things.

    Indeed.

    A one or two thousand word article with a few screenshots, of a multi-million line OS, can't seriously be called "... the most detailed and honest Windows 10 review you will ever have read, ..."

    That's a weird thing to say considering you live in the "Land of Free Speech":
    • Religion
    • Politicians
    • Advertisers
    • etc.

    First off were talking about a review on an OS and facts sure do help support someones argument, don't it?? And how does the length of a blog make the blog anymore accurate?? For me at least it doesn't. Anyone can ramble on about anything and that doesn't make it accurate. Facts are where it's at and the article/blog in the OP didn't have them correct.

    The reason why some users switch to local account is so that they can completely shut Cortana, Bing , etc. down. I am one of them. Actually, you can disable Cortana even with a Microsoft account on. I also installed Classic Shell to have a start menu that I am comfortable with.
    Yep, me too! Cortana is so "in your face" that I immediately took except to it. For those who do like Cortana, it would be nice if there's a choice between male and female.

    Search gives more options than first glance will show . . .

    I don't really want to install Classic Shell, but will if need be.

    Yeah. I have always used a Microsoft account, for convenience. In the Tech Preview, I have Cortana turned off. I have disabled the search function on the taskbar and, using only the search function on the start menu, I have limited it to my computer. If I have a need to search the web, I use the facility in the Browser (using Google), not Bing)
    Same here, Dave. I have my computers networked so I really need to I guess.

    How did you limit it to just your computer? When I search without using IE, I just want to find something in my computer; it's not out there on the Internet.

    In the end of the day everyone is allowed to have an opinion but when things are stated as facts they should be rooted in facts and not half truths. IMO, the author of the article(blog) in the OP is clearly just stirring the pot to get attention to his web site and he's not interested in providing an honest and fair review of Win10.


    Jeff
    Jeff, I don't think that website belongs to the OP. And that's all I'll say, because all kinds of opinions about who could arise.

    I just installed Classic Shell myself, after changing back to the Start Screen. I like it better than the native Start Menu.

    I hope that you installed the Beta Version 4.2.0 (with Win 10 support) and NOT the Stable Version 4.1.0.

    With Classic Shell, you don't really remove the native start menu. You can go back to it anytime with the included shortcut.
