The Windows10 (aka Windows 8.2) facade and DirectX12 lies...
What a huge mess it is the whole Windows 10 thing... which is actually nothing more than a Windows 8.2 with its name changed to make a fool of people.
The whole "Windows 10 free upgrade" is another farce too .. it really seems that the activation key will get locked to the machine on which the upgrade from Windows7 or Windows8 is to be done the first time so no hardware upgrades will be allowed or the key would stop working....
And DirectX 12 ? Well, Microsoft has been claiming for almost a whole year that with DirectX 12 on average there would be a +200% performance boost or more... BUT first games compiled and optimized for DirectX 12 just show an overall +10% performance increase with a bunch more 3D models on the screen and no real visual quality improvement at the rendering level.
And the Windows10 Start Menu.. .what about it? Well, it is a huge mess with the childish awful unusable Metro/ModernUI apps and stuff embedded into it.. Microsoft still trying to force the crap on customers at any cost.
Yeah they added Aero back but it doesn't make any sense because transparency of an awful UI design just sucks and doesn't make it look anything better.
Icons, windows, control panels.. everything looks so messed up, cheap and poor and far from polished like never before.
One would think that Microsoft was just in its early stages for a 2018 release at this point.. instead they are going to release this huge mess right now. Not even by a future ServicePack 3 or 4 they will be able to fix such an awful mess.
Windows 10 is going to be the worst Windows release ever. Way worse than the atrocious Windows8 and 8.1.
Windows Vista with its bugs and issues compared to Windows 8.x and Windows 10 nowadays looks like a masterpiece.
