    I still think they should have kept PC with a PC OS, none of this mobile / touch UI / app rubbish, keep that for touch devices / consoles where big and colourful works

    And tbh, tablet mode is a joke, why have a tablet mode when you are designing the whole OS for touch anyway? What's the point in a big stupid start menu with huge tiles if you also have a tablet mode?

    Same with the settings panel, leave normal mode (PC mode) with classic normal UI, and change everything to the new touch UI for tablet mode

    We many not like the design choices. I'm sure many will though. Basically a casual approach to a desktop.

    Lazy design team who don't want separate OSs to work on IMO

    PC is not a console, PC is not a phone

    If you resize the settings panel horizontally, it becomes a clone of Windows Phone settings screen

    The start menu is basically Windows Phone homescreen / apps draw

    And the way MS are going, it's only going to get worse, as more and more of what Windows really is, is dropped and more and more of this retarded phone UI is added, in a few years we'll not have any classic UI left, it'll all be weak and useless XAML app crap

    There's already an explorer 'app' kicking about in the preview builds, so we can almost guarantee classic explorer is going bye bye in the future, once that is gone... where is windows?

    I can't really answer that one. Windows 10 is still good for what it is providing you are prepered to tweak and uninstall all the pointless apps.

    I just run LTSB 2016 instead, comes without any apps, store, edge, cortana etc

    Just having a rant really, one of those days, but I seriously can see Win 10 going down a dark path and turning into something unrecognisable, right now it still has enough 'Windows' in it to be acceptable, although annoying, but I'm going to estimate in 2~ years it'll be something completely different

    IIRC there is talk of a new UI anyway called 'Fluent', possible they will introduce a new explorer UI with that, not sure but can't see why they would be developing an XAML app explorer if that was not on the cards

    from what i know ReFS already supported since windows8

    https://social.technet.microsoft.co...fs-resilient-file-system?forum=w8itproinstall

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials...efs-file-system-windows-8-1-windows-10-a.html

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/refs-support-in-windows-10-creators-update-v1703.393177/

    in system32 and SysWOW64, u should have "uReFS.dll"
    not sure for win10home (maybe ms not include it?)... but win10pro/ent have it
    indeed it need registry "hack" but doesnt mean the OS dont support for it

    so as it already supported i think that win10-WS version will use ReFS by default instead NTFS

    Actually Windows 10 has supported ReFS for quite a while now you just can't boot from it.

    No hack needed in Win 10 Pro but you just can't boot from a ReFS partition. You can create it with just the simple windows format tool.

    With Windows 10 I'm seeing useful features this year which have been migrated from different platforms.

    We've already seen gaming mode make it's way from Xbox to Windows 10 which I enjoy as my gameplay in some specific games is now more smoother.

    We've seen the leak of CShell which will bring similarities to all forms of Windows.

    I'm looking forward to mobile features working their way in to PC's such as the mobile keyboard and swipe late this year. This will be very useful for my Surface.

    I for one like apps on desktop, I never saw it coming but I now use tons of apps of my PC/Surface.
