Version 10?

1) So basically Microsoft is offering something Apple does for a long time already: OS X.
2) I won't buy it. I have Windows 95 somewhere in a box; so I'm 85 versions ahead.
3) METRO gone? It felt so good to play with tiles and relive my childhood in kindergarten...

Here's an artist's concept of their new packaging:

I did my own Preview. Posted an image of what information Microsoft wants to collect from W10 users. If the Privacy statement is read, you realize it's even worse than the blue screen says. Express Install will expose so much, including your entire browsing history to MS. Definitely better than 8, reminded me some of 7, but my first impression is 10 is no worse than 7 and might even be better, it seems more streamlined.

Metro hasn't been killed, Metro is the new Start Menu.

Worst of all, UEFI Secure(Restricted) Boot is still there in Windows 10.
