  • wth, it took me half Hour to figure out where is start screen :-/ start menu is really old for me :P

  • oh that was fast, well thanks man. Good write up and can u tell me when is next preview coming?..

  • AWesOMe :)-:;,

  • thanks Kapil for the nice review. I m still downloading it hope it will finish by today. I m really excited to get my hands on it. Can’t wait ^_^

  • Why can’t Microsoft add Office as inbuilt in their os like the Linux have libreoffice

  • Ok…Much better Microsoft…miles and miles and miles better than Windows 8. I believe that Windows 8 was a bold statement, very bold, sometimes when aiming at the stars you lose your way. But Windows 10 is very very good, especially with the fact that you want to incorporate the new UI with a old school feel of Windows 7. I have to be honest, even though I love it, I will not pay for it. I have banged my head on a wall for the past two years with 8. So as we wait to hear if this will be an update for WIndows 8 users that have suffered for the past two years or if we will have to purchase. That is the big concern on my side, but I will let you know that I will not pay for something that should of been done with 8. So I guess it is in your court, I will use Lynx over 8 if I have to pay for 10 which is very unfair. But as far as 10 goes,I wish 8 would of had this design. You all have not lost your minds quite yet, much better WIndows.

  • Thank God, the start screen is not gone yet. It’s just beautiful, let retards enjoy the old school start menu hahaha.

  • finally they have restore start menu otherwise I have to move into Mac. Really nice MS!

  • This is intresting. Compatibilty issues gone in W10TP. It recognized by video driver automatically till now i have to install it manually. Perfect windows ;D

  • Ok, yes, it’s better than 8, but that really doesn’t say all that much.
    Here’s the bottom line. We are NOT fooled, we are NOT impressed.

  • Tech Build 9860 available now and I thought I read some where that this new update was supposed to have over 7,000 new and different changes.

    Can someone tell me where even one change is? It all appears to be the same to me.

  • My windows 10 build never recognised the drivers which worked in w8 and hence i uninstalled it back to Windows 8.1 :P

  • LoL Microsoft killed Start Screen that’s what I m expecting for. Really happy now ^_^

  • This was rude step and i offend it.start screen has became our dependency. M$ cant take it away from us like this!!!!

  • windows 10 error code 0xc000000d
    I have no repair or installation cd.
