Being very old school I have used all Microsoft OS from MS-DOS to Windows 10. This release excites me for adopting a lot from OpenSource ideas. For starters it is a free upgrade – something we are so used to in the Linux world (from Debian, to Ubuntu, Linux Mint etc). We have enjoyed using Virtual Desktops, and snapping windows in Linux and Apple OS for the past 15 years!
A start menu is a must in any OS! I am forever thankful to Start8 which was developed for Windows 8 as an add-on start menu. Now that windows has got back its own start menu, I hope Start8 made good sales while it lasted.
