I skipped even trying Windows 8.x at all. I thought it was horrible. I have been hearing that Microsoft is trying to get back to make the Windows experience good for everybody in Windows 10, not just smaller devices. But I am not really seeing all that much of a better desktop experience. There are screens that slide into view and back off the desktop all over the place. That kind of baloney is for tablets, not desktops. Well, I just installed Windows 10 preview a few days ago. And I must say, It just doesn't "feel" right. It works okay but, honestly, the UI feels like it's all over the place. I feel like a hundred different programmers just threw all their own ideas into a box and Windows 10 is the final product. I know it's not finished but I can't really see where its going. It looks cheap, it feels cheap. I don't even know if I want to use this operating system - even if it's free. That's the sad part. I am being as open-minded as I possibly can be. More than I ever was with Windows 8, proven just by the fact that I have installed Windows 10 on an extra system and have some experience with it now. I don't feel like Microsoft Windows is really 'Windows' anymore. When a product changes this drastically it should probably just be given a new name. I think Windows 10 is only going to further damage the Windows brand that everyone came to know and love through the years. Is anybody who skipped or refused to use Windows 8.x liking what they see in Windows 10? If you globbed onto Windows 8 the day it was released, I probably don't want your opinion. It won't help me. Edit: I just upgraded to the latest build, 10049?, early this morning. Not that it changed much other than the 'Spartan' browser is present. The square corners and simple colors really give Windows 10 a cheap look and feel in my opinion. Why can't Microsoft see this is a serious issue?
