Re: Windows 10 Preview!

Lol its so funny they skipped 9... Too close to 8.
Bad experience with 8? Don't worry , we're on 10 now! LOL

Seriously, I'm looking forward to this, really hope they've embraced PC again.

10 is not for the desktop I read.

Every reference I read states that it will provide an improved experience and single unified interface for non touch screen devices such as desktops and that the GUI will adjust itself depending on the device type.

Fingers crossed that the desktop interface on PC's is productive and designed around a keyboard and mouse, i.e.: as functional as Win 7's.

Re: Windows 10 Preview!

I have a good feeling now as it suggests MS is letting the end-user get in on the action!

Listening to Paul Thurrtt MS is really going to use people's feed back this time, not like with W8...I sure hope so!

Re: Windows 10 Preview!

Installed it fresh on my new Samsung ssd yesterday, which only took three minutes to load from my high speed usb 3.0 key
Am using it as my main OS, and have not seen any major bugs that could derail my system, and it's running well so far

Re: Windows 10 Preview!

I also installed it yesterday, upgraded from 8.1 pro. The only issue I have had was ITunes not launching but this was corrected after installing the update from Windows update.
Overall feels pretty snappy and will play around some more this weekend.
