    No worries. If you look back on the history of "friendly" hacking, I am confidant that within a short period, someone will find a way to reinstate the CP:

    It'll all work out in the end, it's just that the end is no where in sight!

    Update has already moved to the settings app and now we cant stop unwanted driver updates that fail.
    What else are they going to mess up in the change. I will take a bet it will not cope withmultple domains/ workgroups.
    It is a far too simplistic approach for complex systems. Why not have a link to "classic" control panel and everbody would be happy.

    As long as I can find what I'm looking for it doesn't matter to me.
    I agree, for me it doesn't matter either. I saw this coming as of the first Build I installed so there is no news flash ther. And I expect the "average" user doesn't even use the Control Panel so for them, they haven't missed anything.

    Whatever or however they do with the Control Panel is bound to upset some people. I really dont see as it will make a difference to anyone where it is.

    Maybe Stardock will come up with something, like they did with "Start8" for Win 8.

    From their web site:

    "We have a lot of new apps in the pipeline for Windows 10 users," said Stardock President and CEO Brad Wardell. "With each version of Windows, we’ve always been able to add features and improvements that were often later implemented into future versions of the OS."

    The only major concern is that Settings provide exactly the same options as Control Panel, if it does then all well and good but if it doesn't then it's just another major justification as to why MS should provide a desktop OS and a mobile OS. Time will tell.

    "Settings" seems quite comprehensive but I haven't explored it in detail. Are there options in Control Panel that are missing from Settings (or vice versa)?

    I don't follow your logic.

    Just because they kill control panel, and have not yet added some piece of functionality to Settings due to time constraints, how exactly does that relate to anything about a desktop vs mobile argument?

    Anything missing in settings is because they haven't had the time to put it there yet.
