I know there are many like Nvidia, Quicktime and Flash that put entries into it.
    Yes, I believe that it will cause confusion. But I think what may cause more confusion is the fact that many users have never installed Windows--they just bought a computer and it has Windows installed. Now they can get a the newest OS free but they will have to install it. I believe that this will cause some problems.

    From what I've read, Frank, and from Windows 10 builds automatically updating my PC, there won't be an installation issue; the user just has to give permission.

    Wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment that the large majority of users find adaptation easier than us. We're the ones that need to find the settings - most users don't even know, or care, that settings even exist! It is a pity, but they are scared the computer will implode if they play with it. Sometimes they are right!!

    That sounds like a good idea. I'm assuming that if it works that way it certainly won't be a clean install or there would be big problems. For myself, I'll back up my important files and do a clean install. I should have the option to do that shouldn't I?

    Yep. Microsoft has said that once we've upgraded, we can clean install Windows 10 as many times as we like. 'Course, it has to be on the same computer.

    OEM maybe but Retail version should stay as it always was.

    It should, Count, but so far I haven't seen any evidence that we'll have a Retail version of Windows 10.

    Yep. All hail to the God Mode now.

    There's good changes and bad changes.

    Control Panel was doing a good job at what it was doing. Looking at Windows 7's CP, it's touch convenient. I don't see why it would be hard to go through it on a tablet.

    You know, leave us the choice between both. It won't kill anybody.

    Not sure how different the CP is in 7 compared to 8, but in 8 the CP s a horrible experience on a tablet

    The choice was almost there in 8 (settings missing things though), people complained about having two ways to do things, so insiders where asked if they wanted the Settings app or CP
