Upgraded my Lenovo to windows 10. Phenomenal.

I was at the end of the rope with windows 8, and whoever designed it was the "paper trader" of programming. looks great on paper, but unusable. He was also color blind, or blind in one eye, I cant make up my mind.

Once you throw away the tiled UI, and just use the Win7-looking desktop UI, Windows 8 was a pretty great update, performed better than Win7. There was just so much stigma against the tiled UI for the masses to appreciate the rest of the OS.

Maybe the core backbone was great, and I cant appreciate that as a non programmer.
But, the tiles is what created the web usability, and that was flawed.
If you open a door in the US, Sweden or Mongolia, you know where the handle is.
OS should be the same way, in other words, intuitive.

I played 10 min with Win 10 and figured it out.

For those with win 10 already installed. I tried googling for this info but couldn´t find anything worthy.

Does win10 provide the same "network bridge" functionality of win7?

I mean, the option to bridge the wireless and LAN (RJ45 port) connections. On win7 it´s pretty easy to do that, it´s just a matter of going to the control panel network adapters page and selecting both the LAN and wi-fi adapters and with a right mouse click, select the "bridge connections" option and voilá! It´s done. Does that option still exist in win10?

Windows Journey of nowhere !!!

Why does MS take Windows users on a journey of "Making It Easy", "Where Do You Want To Go Today" and now really nowhere ?

Windows 7 was Windows 2000 of the new millennium ... Windows 8 was Windows Vista of disaster ... Welcome back Windows XP, beautifully dressed-up as Windows 10. I never used Windows 7 or 8 ... I stuck to my beautiful Windows XP running in my VMware Fusion on my Mac, and now I'm seamlessly running Windows 10 (a Windows XP rebrand) in my VMware Fusion 7 Pro on my Mac. I can now throw away my XP (ala Mike).

I threw away XP when Windows 7 beta came out around 7 years ago.

Different strokes ... I vowed not to have anything to do with Windows 7 and any next version after it. In view of MS's history and character, I knew that an XP rebrand must be on the horizon. Once again, Welcome cool, beautiful, elegant, easy-to-use Windows XP ... oh sorry, Windows 10.

It would be better to pass judgment based on facts and not some sort of resentment.

I don't know anyone who thinks XP is better than Windows 7, unless your hardware is ancient and you don't want to upgrade.

I don't know anyone who thinks Windows 8 was superior to Windows 7. It was hated by everyone.

And now, I don't know anyone who thinks Windows 10 is anything like Windows 8. The feedback is pretty clear from most people, Windows 10 is superior to Windows 7.
