Re: Thanks for spamming me Microsoft
Well, I have that update but I don't see anything telling me how to upgrade. Possibly my version of Classic Shell conceals the "notification area", whatever that is.
Not that it makes a lot of difference. I would never take a new MS OS before SP1 (or several months if it is progressive) and there is, as far as I can see, nothing I want/need in this beast.
Cortina - no thanks. Don't use a mike except when gaming and I don't like machinery which talks back.
Word/Excel/Powerpoint free - nope. I'm happy with LibreOffice
Start Menu - I'm happier with the one I've got than the thing Win10 presents
Universal Apps - my desktop & laptop are the only devices in the house running windows (and the desktop will be linux only soon).
Stream games from XBox - don't have an XBox. When I play games I do it on the desktop PC.
Virtual Desktops - wow, welcome to the 20th century. I've been using third party software to provide this missing functionality for some time and it does far more, so I will probably stay with it.
Look & feel - Win 7 + Classic Windows Shell using classic mode and a bit of tweeking brings my system pretty close to Win2000/WinNT ... which is how I like it. I've been using that interface so long that I can do most things from muscle memory and I don't anticipate living long enough for the time savings from a new, more efficient, interface to outweigh the learning curve.
