    Windows 10 10586

    It appears a video showing off the mini Start Screen has been posted...
    Video of leaked Windows 9 build shows off the new Start menu - Neowin

    And yep, Aero iconography is being tossed into the Recycle Bin!! In the last few seconds, you see the new (I assume) This PC icon and File Explorer metro styled icons. YES!

    I will be upgrading. Been waiting for this for literally three years.

    Very disappointing.
    Over 9000% agreed.
    Personally, if it wasn't for the right side of that start menu, I would move in an heartbeat to Win9.
    Microsoft, FFS, at LEAST, give us the option to remove that Metro/Modern UI BS from the start menu. AT LEAST. You've kneeled soooooooooo many years to the "classic interface" (ie. flat and ugly win9x/2000/Me GUI) veterans and, yet, you don't want us to have a decent start menu for those who just want it without the ugly-ness and marketing hell that is Metro. Most of those options in there, I have my browser for that which is always open and will probably do a better job at it anyway. I shouldn't have to install ANY third-party software to catter to my needs in that department.

    If you watch the video they are pinning and unpinning metro apps from the start so you can remove the ones you don't like to see. I think it looks excellent myself.

    Getting happier about win 9 after watching the video

    Nice to see the start screen there as an option
    Just need to wait and see if store apps can run as now (full screen not on desktop) then win 9 is just right for me

    Sooooo, Windows 9 is nothing more than an interface change, and updates is different. Is that all?

    and for the Aero haters, I ask "you must have hated using Windows 7 for all those years?", I find that odd.

    I will, of course, check it out to see if I can modify enough to satisfy me. If I can turn off the live tile nonsense, delete ALL the metro stuff, I'll be ok. Oh, and I will make use of the feedback option.... though I have no illusions....

    Now that I've seen the video, posted earlier, I really like what I see. I really need to play around with it before I can really make any final decision but at this point I will have to say it's a step in the right direction for my taste.

    Now add in the other features that have been mentioned and this might be a winner. But will it be the OS that Win7 users will upgrade to?? Hard to say at this point but if the price is right I bet they will give it consideration.

    My 2c on it so far...
    Your humble bunny,
