    Well, I have almost had all I need of Windows 10, personally, IMHO it has removed some of the best functions from past versions. How unfortunate.
    Oh? In what way? I have my doubts also.
    Remember, they could bring some stuff back in the consumer version. It will be interesting to see what the differences are. I am still considering trying the consumer version.
    All in all really no change to the original template presented. Minor changes is all, although the OneDrive change was a biggie. Able to check of search glass/task view icons and uninstall the Bing Search engine. I'm sure there's a few more.

    Continuum and Cortana will be the biggies.

    Seemed slower to download and definitely longer to install than the last preview on Inspiron 1525 with 2 Meg connection

    I think the slow download is just due to traffic. I don't remember how long it took for 9860 but this new build took me 25mins (download and install).

    As for changes, not much for physical change. Mostly tweaking and bug fixing.

    I started the download earlier and it's still downloading, can't see any action on the download button to see how far it's gone.

    The way I have been monitoring it is by checking task manager

    Open it up a switch to the app history tab, then click on the network column to sort by this
    Then if you watch 'Host Process for Windows Services' you will see this keep growing in size

    Not sure on size this time, but last download this went upto about 4GB before it was done

    Thanks for the size, currently downloaded about 2GB of it

    Looks like it is going to take around 12 hours to get it done

    No problem. Sorry that it's going to take that long.

    Did you clean install it?

    I was thinking about doing it because I am expecting some problems with the update, but so far I don't see any reason to do a clean install.

    ... and uninstall the Bing Search engine.
    ...
    In addition to removing Bing engine, remember that you can totally remove all Modern Apps you do not like and use with PowerShell. As you know simply uninstalling a Modern App quite often does nothing else but simply removes the app from Start, leaving it on hard disk ready to be "re-installed", added to Start again.

    Just uninstall the apps you do not need, then open the PowerShell or PowerShell ISE and give this command:
    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage | Out-GridView -PassThru | Remove-AppxPackage
    The command explained:
    Get-Appxpackage (AppxPackage = App) lists all Modern Apps on your hard disk, the pipe ('|') symbol then "pipes" (sends) the output to cmdlet Out-GridView to be presented in table which passes the user selection through (switch -PassThru), piping it to cmdlet Remove-Appxpackage:

    Select your uninstalled apps you'd like to remove completely if they are still shown after you uninstalled them, click OK and you are done (in above example screenshot I removed an app from a Finnish newspaper which does not work, and Bing Health).

    You can now check that they are really gone by giving the "list all apps" cmdlet piping it to grid tabel with this command:
    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage | Out-GridView
