    lol, I remember when windows 8 first came out and people having to Google how to shut down their PC.
    Just yesterday I was watching someone used to Windows 8.1 try to shut down a Windows 8 PC. It took me a moment to remember how to do it.

    LOL! I think it was a tutorial by Brink on Eight Forums that saved my bacon.

    Nope, I was royally pi$$ed! I did learn to [kinda] like Windows 8, but then Windows 8.1 came along to disrupt the organization once more. And, eventually I was able to use it proficiently.

    Windows 8.1 Pro is a great OS IMHO. I plan to keep it and upgrade W10 over my W7 Home Premium install.

    Actually I had set up both 7 and 8 in a dual boot across the two OS drives by first adding the 8 boot entry into the 7 BCD. When problems came up suddenly preventing either one from starting a tried the PC Refresh option which then put a fresh 8 install automatically. With 7 in 8's BCD the same problem appeared again until running the Disk Check tool I found numerous errors had come up on both drives..

    Now for the shutdown process most of us went with one of the replacement Start menus at first sight looking for ways to get around the Metro screen at post time. And yes some complained they didn't want any "mobile OS"!

    I'm in the sweat spot, I can run what ever version of Windows I want. Free upgrade or no free upgrade. I have an MSDN subscription to play with. I'll get keys for Windows 10 anyway. If you had asked me about a month ago I would have told you I'm staying with 8.1. Now, I'm not so sure. I still don't like the hybrid start menu/start screen but its at least usable (for me) now. I'm going to run 10 for a while on my daily user laptop and desktop and then decide. So far I've only be playing with the Preview now and then. Usually right after new build is released. It's come a long way.

    I have a few of those MSDN keys for Win 7. Not sure how to apply them at the critical moment?

Windows 10 Release Date
Does anyone here believe that Windows 10 will be very likely to come out in June 2015 or is that wishful thinking? I want it now so badly but I would hate to have to wait until September or even July or August. Microsoft needs to speed things...
