    MVP's were silent after being told our input wasn't wanted for Windows 8, whispering among ourselves at Summit. This all changed when Consumer MVP's got a young Brazilian wunderkind Lead, JP Clementi, who decided to hook up the top forums' Producers with top MS execs to let them hear from us directly in a focus group. This included Rob Brown who is top producer in MS Forums who feels 8 was too much, too soon, to me passionately defending Windows 7 being treated as an unwanted stepchild at the same time it grows even more wildly popular.

    Things changed after that with JP Clementi promoted to Windows 10 team Liaison to MVPs. So at this year's Summit we were briefed and fully interactive with the Windows Ten Product Team on all aspects of its development and marketing. Finally we felt included and useful, not just expensive honorees who never got to meet the OS Product Teams while Office, Xbox and even Azure MVP's dined with theirs. We had hours of face time with Ten Product Team.

    At that time I'd been on TP for a month and hadn't gone back to Seven because I feel it is on course to being a great OS and worthy 7 successor. By now I've been on 10 for four months and still never gone back to Seven in spite of supporting it 6-8 hours per day in the Forums with a help reply every few minutes.

    So when a slightly askew but obviously ambitious update comes out that starts affecting the ease with which I've adjusted to Windows 10, I'm going to speak up about it here and to MS. It is not my job to be a yes-man, we tried that with Windows 8 and we see where that ended up. But I was a young MVP then and now am more seasoned and willing to stake it all on seeing that it lives up to and surpasses the standard which is WIndows 7. I still believe it will happen.

    I hope I am wrong on this. I am seeing a strange pattern (not literally) with windows preview 10. So far, I see more post coming from outside of the U.S. that has major issues. The U.S. version doesn't seem to have some of those issue if I am this reading these comments correctly of course, I could be wrong.

    Could be but I think the issue(s) can be due to the way the update works. For some it just failed and a clean install might fix the issues. Also, using a VM might be an issue.

    Hard to say. It depends how the upgrade was done: online upgrade or clean install from ISO.
    Those who has slow internet may experience some connection problem which may result in corrupted/buggy upgrade.
    I always find online upgrades to be more buggy. I always do clean install build after build.

    Is there anything designed for Windows 10? Considering it hasn't been released yet?
    That`s a joke right

    But seriously.... I only said it because of your graphics issue.

    Laptops are always different when it comes to a new OS, they can be very fussy or not cooperate at all.
    My laptop had official support for 7 and 8. But 8 drivers didn't work on 8.1 clean install. And it was quite a bit of driver hunt to get all the required drivers.
    Hope i'll be able to do the same with 10.

    Well..., the modern date/time UI works now but you still have to 'hack' it.

    Thanks, Bunny. I see now these rectangles allow us to type headings into them.

    But what if I only want them gone to regain the space? I don't want Content headings or a scrolling Start Menu but prefer Pinned locations on top of Most Used, and to shuffle tiles which are contiguous.

    I got the taskbar space back by deleting Search box but it pops up when I hit the Start button. It would be better if it waits for user to type something first before assuming the taskbar real estate to do that? It obviously isn't for Cortana who has ears, but for Bing.

    ...kinda disappointing.

    All the 'Buzz' for the past couple of weeks was "MS better get it right this time", "this could make or break em"!
    Doesn't seem too encouraging so far!
    I know what you mean (and what you are thinking). But I think the main exercise was diverted by the glamour show. That was what they hoped will be available in the final release. We are still on our old plan of giving feedback on early builds.

    From the latest build, though, I can see that MS may have a problem of observing what the majority are feeding back, and ignoring the minority. Several things which I fancied are gone - but maybe (?) not permanently.
