    50 shades of grey and white.. boring, i dont expect something really artistic from OS, it had to be better than totally ugly a cumbersome (hello Gnome,KDE), i far i remember only WinXP and Win7 done it a bit better and feeling was actually pleasant.

    Sorry but XP looks like a Fisher Price toy at this point. The problem that Microsoft has is that whenever they really innovate they usually pull back major changes at the last second.

    I don't really care about the UI much, I am really curious if there are any serious changes underneath. We haven't seen really major overhauls since Vista basically.

    I like the new UI, some of the icons are already in current dev version.
    Also, the font has been redesigned, it looks/scales nicer now.

    Is or would there be any way to tie these two points together:

    https://blogs.windows.com/windows-i...10-on-arm-pcs-to-the-windows-insider-program/

    https://arm.nvidia.com/

    and of course, the lynchpin:

    https://www.windowslatest.com/2017/12/01/nvidia-approached-microsoft-windows-10-arm-project/

    He may wear leather jackets in summertime, but the boy is playing the long game; very very well.

    More research needed, but I think AMD and nvidia are about to go to war, the likes which we have not seen the likes of which; before.

    I need to call my stockbroker...

    edit: I'm on hold, so for those of you not smelling what I'm cooking, May I quote from the arm link above:

    Strengthen our ability to innovate:

    We can innovate across all three major processors — CPU, DPU and GPU, and offer an alternative CPU architecture to x86.



    From the windows blog:

    When we first launched Windows 10 on ARM in late 2017, the long tail of apps customers needed were dominated by 32-bit-only x86 applications, so we focused our efforts on building an x86 emulator that could run the broad ecosystem of Windows apps seamlessly and transparently. Over time, the ecosystem has moved more toward 64-bit-only x64 apps and we’ve heard the feedback that customers would like to see those x64 apps running on ARM64. That’s why we are working on expanding the capability of our emulation to include x64 applications and sharing this first preview to gather feedback.

    And the finale headline:

    Nvidia was also approached by Microsoft for Windows 10 on ARM project. (December 2017)

    Actually looks great. Just installed it. For those who may get a "the PC requires TPM 2.0 support" for install to go ahead, you need to enable it in bios. If your board does not have a TPM 2.0 module, you can enable Intel PTT in the bios and that will do. Not sure what the equivalent on AMD boards is.

    There is no AMD equivalent.

    Sounds like you installed enterprise or server, TPM is not required in Pro or Home - Or its just a flaw in the multiversion iso thats going around.

    The taskbar right-click only gives you taskbar settings. Even task manager doesnt come up, you have search for it and pin it to taskbar. This limited taskbar functionality (vs Win 10) is my main gripe so far.

    So are there any significant changes besides the visual ones?

    What i want is an OS that doesn´t force updates and doesn´t spy on users...

    Will never use that trash, only reason I went to Win 10 was for DX12 and that is a bigger joke than ray tracing. Back to Windows 7 and DX11 for me, if I wanted a MAC PC i would go buy a MAC looking PC. Anyone that puts candy crush on your pc in the default installation does not care about its users.

    not on desktop it hasn't.

    only servers

    not every motherboard even supports fTPM, and many current boards don't even have a header

    the modified enterprise/server ISO going around is using an esd with the check, but pro and home will not require TPM.

    Windows is more mainstream now. At least you get the option to uninstall it, and other apps of the same ilk.
