    I would but it seems pointless to do so. There will be ways to customize forthcoming.

    On the whole, I think W10 is coming along quite nicely.
    I agree,, it's in development.. it's not finished.. it's far from finished. Let's let it become finished and then compare it to any previous OS.

    The vid's a little exaggerated if you ask me, I could figure out how to navigate and use W8 in a short amount of time back then,
    and I was half ways computer illiterate back then.

    I recall I tried Win8 out in a VM and it took me about 30 minutes to get comfortable. All I had to do was add on a third party start menu when they came out and I was all set with it. Then 8.1 came out and it was/is perfect.

    I disagree with your statement "we all know that windows 8 was like vista part 2", if anything, I would say Win 7 was Vista part 2. I never used Vista until AFTER I used Win 7 and when I did actually use Vista, I wondered what people didn't like about it since it was very, very similar to Win 7. Aside from that you should refrain from assuming that "we" all "know" the same things you do.

    As far as "the fisher price tiles", they're still there (as are Modern apps) in Win 10 but I don't hear anyone complaining about them now.
    I meant it as a perception issue, both windows vista and 8 received bad press and both ultimately were fine operating systems. I hear fisher price all the time on you tube and other forms and in real life.

    It's only a month and a half from shipping - not a heck of a lot of time. There are a lot of issues still. I try to be hopeful, but I really don't want them releasing a turkey...

    One GUI to rule them all

    - Active window's titlebars are colored, instead of being white. This makes it easier to see at a moment's glance which window is active.
    Agreed.
    The "any colour you like as long as it's white" taskbar is horrible.

    - The opened-taskbar items are easier to see, than Win10's slightly white overlay. The taskbar progress-meters (such as copy window progress, and media player timeline positions) are green instead of a slightly white overlay). These make it much easier to see at a moment's glance where they are upto.
    The little highlight indicator on the taskbar is pretty much useless.
    It's just like the OSX Dock and Ubuntu Unity launcher indicators.

    I understand the approach of desktop users as this is the majority of people using windows, but if win 10 is supposed to be a universal os that runs on all form factors then it needs to work well on all these devices
    "One GUI to rule them all" is the source of a lot of the desktop user "issues" with the W8 series.
    MS was repeated warned during the previews and they chose to ignore those warnings.

    Now "one GUI to rule them all" is causing "issues" for mobile users trying W10TP.

    So how's that Model-T working out for you.
    There's nothing better than "cruising in the T" swigging down "New Coke".
