Re: Windows 10: Babies, Dogs and Baby Seals
How about instead of an Operating System, it has now become a Start Buttom System (or SBS). It's whole point is not to operate your device; rather, it is meant to give its users the power of the Start Button. All else is secondary.

Re: Windows 10: Babies, Dogs and Baby Seals
@sachinee- It is funny, because i remember a similar issue on Office with the "ribbon." People got over it mostly and adjusted. I've never seen such an small interface issue become something so few people were willing to adjust to. i blieve in flexibile operating systems so I'm fine with it coming back, but wow, people were really stuck in their ways on this one.

Re: Windows 10: Babies, Dogs and Baby Seals
@broadway0474- i can't say I use the start button more than once or twice a day in my life. So I can't say i know what the fuss is, but I'm all for more flexible operating systems that help people use it the way they want to use it. that's why Android is my favorite operating system in the world right now.

the best part of Android is that I could give you an identical phone to mine with the same apps and same specs. And with the use of widgets, icons, home page organization, etc, we'd have entirely different phones that worked entirely differently. My wife and I have basically the same phone and apps and every time i accidentally picks hers up, I'm totally lost.

To me, that's what Windows10 should strive for-- the flexibility to make the experience your own. The start buttone is a step that direction.

Re: Windows 10 .....
@Technocrati - this is fun!  I slept on it last night and think MSFT should use a reference that originated in the 90s since that way its heyday.  "Windows: look what I can do!"

Anyone get the reference?  Let me know if you need a hint.

@david: People were missing the start button on windows 8 like it is something mythical and legendary relic everyone must have. And yes, it is. Start button is the sole reason to buy this OS. Microsoft should have named this OS: Windows Start Button instead of Windows 10.

Classic one about the office versus home. But the start button ... don't mess with the start button. I love it!

@technocrati- I love "a better way to use rectangles!" They should use that on Sesame Street.

Re: Windows 10 .....
@Dave  Agreed.  And not one mention of the constant carousel of updates either.
