    No, Bunny, you're fine, I'm all good with your comments and enjoy reading them. I don't have a problem at all with those who have a differing opinion or whose experiences with W10 may be different (whether better or worse). But some members do sometimes come-across as sounding quite condescending. It may not even be intentional but merely their posting 'style', as it's hard to convey the nuances of the spoken word in a text format without making every post sound and read like a novel.

    T'was merely an observation related to Jody's earlier post, not a shot across anyone's bows...

    Good,, everything is good between us and that's all that matters.
    Have a great day and keep up the great posts.

    I have always wondered if these type of things are intentional or not, thought that it might be a difference in the way English is used in different countries
    but is is quite off putting when you make a comment on something and then get jumped on for having an opinion

    A peeve of mine is when you make a comment and get criticised because its a beta and if you don't like it you shouldn't be using beta software

    personal opinion of mine, but I enjoy reading negative equally as much as positive, gives me more of a feel of hows things are

    Hmmmmmmmmmm!. . .just wondering. . .does this mean that all of you who claim you won't be using Win 10 will no longer be posting about how bad it is will also not be posting here any more about how bad it is. I mean if you aren't going to use it will we still be getting post from you telling us it really is bad. If you don't use it how will you know. . .again just wondering. . .

    Yes and no.

    When I was still on 8 I used to run Classic Shell as my start menu, specifically because I didn't like the Start Screen. But when 8.1 came out with the ability to 1/ go straight to All Apps when Start was clicked and 2/ customise the quoit out of the All Apps screen, I decided not to install any 3rd-party Start replacement and instead use the All Apps screen as my Start screen.

    Well, it worked a treat, and I was surprised at how quickly I felt 'at home' with this setup. So much so that when I'm using my Win 7 or Vista machines, I actually miss both it and the natty and very handy little right-click 'guts' menu.

    So, on to Win 10 and its Start menu... well, I tried. I really tried. But no, I don't like it. And when I tried to get it to go to the All Apps screen, it wouldn't. Apparently there is a hack to get it to go to the Start screen, but that wasn't what I wanted, I wanted All Apps. So I installed Classic Shell (in build 9926 or whatever) and it seemed to be OK. I used that build, with Classic Shell, as my primary OS for around six weeks without too many problems, until I removed 10 for unrelated reasons. My brief foray into build 10074 revealed little or no improvement to their Start menu, so I once again installed Classic Shell. And it borked. Big-time. Didn't work properly itself, and killed the MS one stone dead.

    All I want is for 10, when I click on the Start square, to take me to a customisable All Apps screen a la Win 8.1.1 but alas! that seems to be far too big an ask... And no, simply making the Start menu full-screen and clicking All Apps isn't an acceptable substitute (it was one of the first things I tried).

    I also like W8.1 very much and would like to see the Start Screen/All Apps feature in W10. But that isn't the way Microsoft is going. When all is said and done, I will upgrade to W10. Just like when I went from XP to W7 and then from W7 to W8, there will be a learning curve, but I actually enjoy that part of it.

    I'll still post here even if I decide not to run Windows 10. Why not? I still like to try and help people sort out issues. I do believe I am entitled to my opinion, so if there is something I don't like about an OS, I'll state it. I don't go on and on about it, but if it comes up in conversation I'll voice my point of view. Your profile shows your not running Windows 10 so one might ask why are you here? I won't, its a free country, but going by your logic, you should just stick to the Windows 8 forum.

    But if you don't use Win10 on a regular basis do you think you'll be able to provide accurate advice on things that are going wrong?? Would it be based on your or someone else's experience??

    Depends on the issue. There are still lots of similarities between Windows 8 and Windows 10. Hardware is hardware, drivers may be different but installing them is still the same, etc. I may run Windows 10, just haven't decided yet. I still go to seven forums occasionally even though I'm not running windows 7. I don't post near as often as I do Eight Forums or Ten Forums but I still go there. Obviously, if I have no idea what is causing an issue I'm not going to post in that thread. Do you post in every thread? My post count will likely go down but I'll still come here.

    I don't but I try to help when I can. The point I'm trying to make is would it be more helpful if you posted/helped out in the OS that you're more familiar with??

    I feel a little better when I see posts like this. At first when the Windows 10 TP emerged, it seemed EVERYBODY on here was so gaga about Windows 10 (in a way though that seemed like they were just blindly accepting whatever Microsoft tossed their way). I just couldn't understand what made the new OS so much better than 8.1, but this forum seemed blind to that. I figured even early on that the first TP releases were not going to reflect the final product.

    Now we see the changes that are starting to drive would be users away (Edge, No WMC, a half-assed Start Menu, and the conversion of Control Panel to settings). Yet there those few here that still seem to champion new for the sake of new and say "well I like the Settings Panel; it just takes getting used to, you Luddite you", whereas I think "Control Panel Just worked. Leave it be". It's as if they believe Microsoft can do no wrong with Windows 10, especially when it would be a free upgrade. It was that mindset that had me shaking my head.

    But thankfully, that appears to be changing.
    I think I fall in this category. It's different and that's what I like. I like trying new stuff. Edge should grow to be better. The WMC going away is a bummer, but can still be used by either dual booting or using a VM. I even like the new start menu after using it, to be it is a perfect combo of W7 and W8 start

    Windows 10 will become my main OS one day, but I will continue to us 8.1 too. W10 being free is a good thing I think.
