    Thanks OldMike. I honestly don't see why people are so upset about something they have never seen and don't know anything about. Let's just wait and see the finished product. When the change happens and we get an opportunity to use it and get to know it, I may complain too. But, if I do, I will have some factual reasons for my complaints. As it stands right now, there is nothing to complain about other than 'something is going to be different and I don't like that'.

    You answered your own question:

    If it's not finished, why is it in the OS???

    The whole point is to make sure the new product will have the same features as the old. If we just wait without telling our opinion, then it may be too late! The purpose is that Microsoft takes into account what we say (I hope) and then they design the final version. As I said before, it doesn't matter if I like it or not, but I do want the new Settings app to be as functional as the old Control Panel before they make the switch and remove the latter.

    Would it not stand to reason that MS won't rid the CP until the Settings app is complete? As it stands today, anything that has not been ported over is at least linked to the CP and opens it where one can configure that setting. It is complete in that respect, yes?

    In the era of developing and releasing 7 in which touch and snapping were introduced, they started planning 8 with the introduction of the new WinRT application architecture. With the development and introduction of 8 it was a basic start. To port OS features over to WinRT will take some time. A very complex undertaking to say the least. MS has very good reasons to do so, both in architecture and marketing purposes. All too numerous to mention in one post. If one reads the forums, one will get a general idea of what's going on. That is not meant to focus on you alone, but to all.

    bobjoe, I didn't answer my own question. perhaps you need to read everything Microsoft has said about this OS. They said this would be the last version of Windows. That does not mean what you see is what you get. It means instead of making a new version, this one will evolve. Apparently they have determined that doing away with Control Panel is part of that evolution. That's why it is in the OS right now. It's part of the process.
    @spapakons, you complaining here does not tell Microsoft anything. No one here works for Microsoft or has any affiliation with it as far as I am aware.. Make your objections to the insider's program or from the feedback app. That's what it is for.

    Microsoft is not desperate. It's their OS. They designed it and built it the way they wanted it and are making the changes they want to. They have said since the beginning that changes to the OS will be made and they are doing it, so What's the big deal? The truth is, no matter what Microsoft does, there will be some people who like it and some who don't. Windows 10 is an evolving OS and we all have to learn to deal with it or go back to Windows 7/8.1 or some other OS we like. You have no idea what they are going to do or how it will be implemented. You have nothing to complain about. You are only complaining about something is going to change. I have news for you. Over the next few years a lot of things are going to change. Some you may like, some you may not. But, change is inevitable. Complaining about something that doesn't exist and you have no idea how it will look when it does exist is simply not logical.

    Very well said Steve, one thing about Windows 10 it will always be changing beings it's the last OS Microsoft is going to have with ongoing updates.

    Very correct and on point. Windows 10 will be an ongoing updated OS. The VR1 is already being tested and is due sometime in November.
    @Bongo we must think alike
