    HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!. . .was wondering when someone was going to use the old adage "then they have a right to voice that opinion." This one always makes me .
    Of course we have a right to voice our opinions. Now as to M$ taking any notice we'll see. One thing we all do not need is another failure like Windows 8 or Vista.
    You have a right to voice your opinion too. Exactly what is your opinion instead of mocking posters who voice theirs?

    Would be nice to see a response from MS on how many have asked for Aero and how many have asked for a way to turn of the Modern stuff completely (other than me ).
    When my Windows 10 machine asked me if I preferred Control Panel or PC settings I vented my spleen in the feedback box and let them know they need to separate out the Metro interface and use Desktop tools with the desktop interface and I do not care what they do with the modern interface. Just separate them and keep the users happy.

    I guess what you are saying here, is that your's is the only opinion that matters?

    Most people do *NOT* have Start8 or Classic menu. Most people don't even know those programs exist. of all the Windows 8 machine's I've seen over the last year, I've only seen a start menu replacement on a handful of them (that's hundreds of other machines).

    Second of all, people do in fact complain about battery life of Windows 7 on machines built for Windows 8, and Aero is one of the reasons for that. Machines built for Windows 8 are lower spec, and have smaller batteries (to make them lighter and smaller), and thus don't last as long.
    You seem to assume that all computers work off of a battery. If I was running a machine off a battery, I would want to turn Aero off. But I am on a PC with an 850 watt power supply and a quad core video card. I don't need to conserve battery power or video power, so I want my SHINEY!

    Exactly, it needs to be built into the system. If you have a fondleslap which is not powerful enough to run Aero fair enough but why is Windows now made for the lowest powered devices? There should be a choice. If I want my machine to look pretty and take 2 extra micro seconds to open and draw a window with Aero I should have the choice, remember the customer is always right.
    Fondleslap! Snort, choke.

    The obvious reason the removed glass is for the tablets and such. They want one OS for all devices. I can only assume those who want the OS to look good are far outnumbered by those who don't know/don't care. It would be easy to put it back in...or the ability to turn it on, but if so many don't care, they won't. Mac OSX manages to still look good. Different, but good. Guess MS thinks the flat colored square thing looks good. Oh well. It wouldn't be a deal breaker for me, but it's another reason I see no need to "update". Seven will serve me fine until I need to change, or something comes along that Wows me. A Guy
    If M$ wants one OS that fits all (didn't work for clothing sizes but M$ didn't learn from that), they could make it modular and people (and manufacturers) could install only the features they want (or the hardware can support). Otherwise, I feel it is doomed to failure.

    I personally do not like AeroGlass and have it turned off. But I was able to make that choice instead of having one rammed down my throat. My only objections to Win 10 right now are the necessity to use tiles in the Start Menu for items that appeared as a simple list on the right side of the Win 7 Start Menu and the flat appearance of windows due to the lack of color shading and window shadowing. The latter may seem like a cosmetic issue but, for me, color shading and window shadowing makes reading items on a screen much easier on my eyes and brain; otherwise, everything blurs together. It's like going back to my Commodore C64c. This is progress?

    I thought that was the whole concept of having a "micro kernel" with NT design way back when? How soon they forget.

    NT isn't a true Microkernel, but it's Microkernel-inspired

    What we know as Windows is not the true NT OS, that's the ntoskrnl, which doesn't have any real user interface. That's why WinRT (ie Metro) could just as easily become the primary OS at some point, leaving Win32 (what we know as Windows or the Desktop) to be a windowed subsystem.

    I don't think IBM got there either with OS/2. But I;m not sure. Last v I used was 3.0.

    The idea being "one OS for all platforms" isn't stupid if you install the modular components needed for the platform. It's lazy and lame just to have clumps of spaghetti code for every possible platform, install it all, and just call the clump needed at run time.

    The micro kernel comment was referring to the former approach.

    Edit: Speaking of alternative shells and such, just for grins I'm going to try one on a W7 VM.Just to see what happens.

    OS/2 was never a Microkernel at all. It was very monolithic
