Could use a bit more color but I like the look. Not big or clunky.

Can I get a screen shot. I need to see for myself... Everything I've seen has made it look as fugly as 8 ever was.

Just to note you CAN remove all tiles and resize the start menu as shown below

You can also change the color of the start menu and taskbar but as by default it chooses a color based on the background image. You can also have multiple desktops.

*sigh* still as aesthetically unpleasing as ever, I see.

As an aside, why multiple desktops?
Who has need for more than one?

What do you expect? The tiles to explode whenever you delete them? It looks great, you would rather have Windows XP Graphics? and why not? Some people do tend to have a lot of shortcuts and its great to organize them. Could have a desktop dedicated to games.

Actually, the tiles exploding upon deletion would be absolutely wonderful.

And no, it doesn't look great. The only thing I can think of which looks more blocky is Lego. Microsoft's new Megablocks Motif is simply not appealing to me and looks like a regression to ye olde times o' Win2000.

RE: Get Windows 10 App
7 was the best so far.
8 had a rough start.
8.1 is pretty good as far as I'm concerned.
10... Well, it's free. It's probably better than 8, and at least more current than 7...

Oh, and my 10 reserving went great. Easy peasy... Wish that notification would bugger off until release though.

That would be cool actually and ok so its not as round, its very easy, streamlined, i was able to pick it up and learn where everything was in seconds, its so easy to find everything. Its better than 8 at least, i hope we can agree on that lol

Yabut, saying it's better than 8 is a bit like saying something is better than bubonic plague. It's not a hard target.
