    One of the reasons I got into various forms of Linux was experimentation. None of it went well for me, though, and so I'm back to using Win7, exclusively. I'm looking seriously at taking on 10 when the time comes for it's release. I figure I'll give it 60 days to generate a buzz, positive or negative, then make my final decision. After install, it has 10 minutes to wow me, then continue to do that for more than a day before I decide to keep it.

    Would I get rid of things in my "dream Windows" that show up in my current version? Hell, ya. Did I feel the same way about EVERY OS I've laid hands on? Affirmative. Nature of the beast, I suppose. I'd like it if the ugly bumper on my car didn't "have" to be there, but... and, I'd like it if my grandkid's pants didn't come with belt loops. It's not like he uses the damned things.

    MS set up the feedback to get input from the testers and it's the best way to let them know what you want in the OS. I imagine that MS is busy enough with the feedback that they don't have time to spend at this site. And as it has been mentioned this is not their forum.

    No this isn't Microsoft's site, although there are a lot of Microsoft MVPs here. I might add that those MVPs are private individuals the same as you and me. IOW, they don't "report back" to Microsoft; they come here to help folks with computer problems.

    Microsoft cannot keep up with everything in the computer world. There are just too many forums and websites that deal with computers. Posting to those websites and forums doesn't guarantee that Microsoft will see our wants and needs.

    Off the top of my head I'll list what I can think of:

    Windows Seven Forums
    Windows Eight Forums
    Windows Ten Forums
    CNET
    PCWorld
    ZDNet
    HP Forums
    Dell Forums

    The only real way that we can be sure Microsoft sees what we think is to click on the Feedback icon in the Start menu and tell them what we think, want, suggest, etc. How else will MS know?

    Like why do I need the baggage of hundreds of languages when I only need English.
    But there is a single language windows.

    I sorry Mystere I do have an idea of what I am talking about. Been in the business for over 40 years.
    Including IBM mainframes. I was able to select some portions of Windows 3.1 and it worked very
    well for me. Like why do I need the baggage of hundreds of languages when I only need English.
    That would be the 1st to go. My idea would make windows more streamlined with less bloat.
    I've seen all this before many times and Microsoft keeps on doing the same thing. They could care
    less about the people out here.
    You stated I just responded......
    As far as Linux goes I would switch in a minute if it wasn't so bad. Tons of chiefs and few Indians.
    Then there is the god awful Grub to deal with. That needs a good book for Dummies. The Linux
    people expect one to learn that piece meal I guess. Poor way to learn IMHO.
    First off there are dummies books for Linux.
    Linux For Dummies, 9th Edition: Richard Blum: 9780470467015: Amazon.com: Books

    And if you like this, a tutorial(one of many):
    The Complete Beginner's Guide to Linux | Linux.com

    As for being in the industry for 40 years I would think you would be able to adapt to varying OS's. I've had to and I've been involved with computers since 1978. Including IBM Mainframes.

    Yes, change is common and we have to adjust.

    I'm not sure that's entirely true. I believe that MS, and any savvy corporation, can and should keep track of EVERY site that mentions their name, much less one that holds full-out discussions about it's product(s). Sure, it's alot of resource to throw out there, but the corp needs to continue making $$. The only way to accurately get feedback is to hear the customer at the street level. What are they telling their neighbors about the corp's product? etc... It just happens that our "street" is electronic and YOU are my neighbor.

    As far as participation in these forums, I'm glad that MS doesn't officially have a presence here (or in Seven Forums, etc...). If I want to talk to them directly, they have a web interface. The difference is, the people here help because they WANT to be here. If MS made an appearance here, the person on the other end of that connection would be here because they would HAVE to be. It changes the quality of the answers and opinions, in my view.

    I would like to have just bare minimum windows without any of those small applications starting fro textpad, paint and such, not even a browser, I replace those with my favorite third party anyway. No desktop pictures and themes, easily replaceable icons and menus. Just a plain, minimal OS. They could offer some packages (distros ?) that you can download and set up or even just programs by themselves. Something like famous "Find an application to open this file with". For instance, you want to open a text file, a menu shows up and gives you choice of Notepad, Wordpad or something like that.
    Windows like that would be much smaller easier to download and setup without a bunch junkware and stuff you'll never use.

    You have to download additional languages.
