Upvoted you cos you talk sense - however one of the reasons I can't make the switch to Linux is it breaks my workflow.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for no major UI changes in Windows. Just clean up the rough edges still hanging around after the 8 debacle. Its not friendly having both the old XP / 7 interfaces and the new 8/8.1/10 interfaces popping in randomly. The new ones suck pretty hard for anything except basic on/off switches.
