This is for the better for all parties and finally I can turn on a few Windows 7 reference VMs for a patch-up on security, hopefully before October and the ‘monthly rollup’ update scheme kicks into action for all.
I do use Windows 10 as I both need and want to know how to control this and that from a security aspect and the client plays a key part in this. As for the interface, I was quite ok even with Windows 9x for the most, but I can understand that their flat web-like interface seems a large step backwards, still this is only presentation and got very little to do with the inner workings of the OS. It has become a beast, good and bad combined
If looks is the game, there are sites like stardock for you to skin and pimp it up to your hearts desire or download one of the many skins available (probably shareware, I would not know, but it sure looks out of this world the little I’ve seen from it)… I’ve never really been into pimping my installation apart from custom icons for my desktop and maybe a background picture
What I can’t see is any benefit from universal apps (aka mobile mash-up) and so I search the net, it never occurs to me searching the Windows Store for a program. It should be standard PE/PE+ executables for my desktop and then they can do whatever they want for their so far dead mobile
