interesting , I just searched my username and found out how old my thermaltake harddrive dock is,6yrs old ,I had posted that I bought a new toy on another help forum 6 years ago ,,, ,I was wondering how old it was ,as it just died on me a few weeks ago , time for a few drinks to that
I was an mvp for 6 yrs only time I know of them looking here and other forums was once a year at renewal time, when they checked out how good I was doing .
I don't agree with this.
The Linux GUIs I've used (GNOME2, KDE3? & MATE) are much closer to Windows, than the Mac GUI is.
Most of the "common" keyboard shortcuts are identical in Linux Distros too (
"Undo" "Redo" is an exception).

ok.i need to update my thoughts on Linux ,I have never used the ones you mention ,
Ha yep I wonder how John @z3r010 got all TenForums members on or near the top of Google search view profiles
Charming control panel
I don't have Win10 installed. So I cannot suggest per the normal Win10 channel. Just using Win8.1 on a (new) tablet.
Something I noticed that I hope is already resolved in Win10.... Charms bar | Settings | PC Settings
It would be better if All PC controls are in one location. Not some on the Charms bar, some in PC settings, and most in Control Panel.
Yes, it would be better, and no it's not going to happen. The conversion from Control Panel to settings is going to be a long slow process over many versions of Windows (could be 10 years or more).
Those are Desktop Environments (DE).
I'm running Linux Mint 17.1 MATE (64 bit).
XFCE is another DE that is supposed to be similar to Windows.
GNOME3 and the newer versions of KDE are somewhere between W7 and W10.
For example, the multiple desktops in W10 seem to be similar to Activities (KDE) and Workspaces (GNOME3).
I think that jimbo45 said he uses KDE.
You could ask him about it.
You should take into account that IMO:
- The Windows GUI tools are ~80% to ~90% finished
- The Linux GUI tools are ~50% to ~60% finished

If you put @jimbo45 rather than just jimbo45 it shows up in his mentions and he will be notified. This is a nice (and perhaps new) feature in the forum.
I use KDE plasma. I tried a few and it was the prettiest for me. It doesn't deal particularly well with high DPI screens but then nor does anything else. I have 2 Macbook Pro (One running TP only, one dual boot Arch and OSX) and an old Lenovo X201. Neither OSX, Windows nor Linux will deal with high DPI perfectly. You always run into some program that defines things in terms of pixels and makes it unreadably small no matter what you do.
Personally I think Windows GUI is the easiest to use but possibly only because I use it more often.
I am aware of that feature, but people complain if you mention Linux "too many times" in a thread.
I thought that if caperjack was interested he could message jimbo45.
I use W7 for ~95% of my computer activities.
