    I can't help but share this. This gem popped up on my Cortana news for Microsoft, and I have to say, the level of ignorance and obvious bias against Microsoft and Windows Phone is appalling. I attempt to avoid being a 'rabid, Microsoft-Biased fanboy' but this is just too good.

    Interesting complaints that I wouldn't have thought about... Vertical menus? How much of an abomination can Microsoft be?!

    The review is useless, from a place I have never heard of, and an author who it would seem to be a never was.
    I have an issue with someone who does a deep dive into an OS Alpha/Beta and sets out a review as if this were RTM version.

    Best to avoid clicking the site as it's not worth the time to read.

    BetaNews is an okay site, but that particular author is worthless. All his articles are heavily anti-Microsoft with click-bait headlines like that of the article mentioned. He deservedly gets called out for this by readers of the site in the Disqus comments.

    BetaNews have nothing but **** on their articles on Windows (Phone)

    I hope in the near future, Cortana would be smart enough not to show them on my daily glance

    Well, there's nothing inherently wrong, but the way things have been implemented here is terrible. In order to click the network icon, you've already had to move your mouse to the bottom of the screen -- to select an item from the list you then need to move right back up the screen.
    err.... I think all COMPUTERS act like it, don't it?

    The same problem arises with notifications. Move your mouse down to the bottom of the screen and click the notification button and you're presented with a popup that occupies the full height of your screen. Once again, notifications are listed vertically and you can see at a glance anything that needs your attention. But should you need to interact with any of the entries in the list, you'll need to travel back up to the top of the screen -- why not start to populate the list from the bottom up rather than the top down?
    All PC (Computer, Laptop, Tablet, Phone) act like this, even your A company designed like that too, this guys is stupid.

    I stop reading it after that

    IDK... There are always people who want everything changed to suit them personally. "I'm right, the world is wrong" fills the interwebz to overflowing. It's not news, it's blogness as usual.

    Well, he whines from a desktop non-touchscreen interface. From that anti-future scenario, his complaints are kinda valid. But, the OS is design entirely with touch screen devices in mind. Even laptops can do reasonably well, as the trackpad gestures fill the void of the touchscreen. But, desktops, yes, the design and charms are a bit cumbersome.

    PS: On a non-touch laptop.

    Want to connect to a wireless network? Hit the network icon in the notification area and you'll be presented with a vertical list of available connections (vertical is a word -- or a notion -- that crops up again and again in Windows 10). Whats the problem with a vertical list? Well, there's nothing inherently wrong, but the way things have been implemented here is terrible. In order to click the network icon, you've already had to move your mouse to the bottom of the screen -- to select an item from the list you then need to move right back up the screen. Not a major hardship, you might say, but it's remarkably inefficient
    What, is this guy's screen upside down or something? /S.

    It has been like this since XP!

    The same problem arises with notifications. Move your mouse down to the bottom of the screen and click the notification button and you're presented with a popup that occupies the full height of your screen.

    This is an excellent example of something that might make sense on a touchscreen device, but is less meaningful on systems operated with traditional peripherals.
    Hey, genius people read from the top down not the bottom up l.

    I think I need to rinse my eyes with soap... before I end up doing this

    He might have a point about the need for excessive mouse movement. As such Elon Musk and I are proud to announce the first mouse with energy recovery capabilities. Its estimated that Windows 10 PC users will be able to cut their electric bills in half by using the recovered energy from mouse movements to power their homes.

    Too much mouse movement? Are you that ******* lazy? Do you really need to complain about little things like that? That's exactly where I stopped reading this thread because:
    A. Someone is trolling
    B. Someone is missing half their brain
    or
    C. I've been drugged

    i tried to read this article.... then realized he must have not used a windows based machine since windows 3.11! A lot of his complaints are things that have been in place for over 2 decades! Also, for anyone that has had to attempt to install a "Tablet Edition"of Windows, Windows 8/10 has been a GODSEND!

    Also, with 1 out of my 4 PCs being touchscreen (my SP2) I have ZERO issue with the interface. People need to move on. I see all this hate for Windows 8 and 10, but most of these same people are NOT jumping to OSX or Linux. Humans, they complain just to complain!

    Probably an android fan boy. It just screams out Android. In fact, I reckon he owns a Sony Experia. Probably an older one, I think M2 :)

    Garbage. But some people hate change. My issue with those people is that they always have options. That is the entire point behind Linux. Some things people b* about, they really need to become developers. Like pivot, and the hamburger menu. Inane stuff people complain about.

    If he doesn't like Windows 10, and its clear didn't like 8.1 or 8 as well, there's always 7. There's Mac OS. There's OS X, CPM, Basic, Fortran. The man has options. He should learn some humility and see what we had to deal with in the 80s and 90s; he would drive to Redmond and kiss the ground the campus is built on.

    Your average tech writer is just a troll that found a way to get paid. There are enough angry technologists in the world for these men to continue to earn a living. That's why I can't make any money writing about technology; I honestly don't care what people use. I'll tell you what worked for me. If it didn't work for you, well its a free country there's something for everybody.

    Wonder what he thinks of OSX then, with the Dock on the bottom, notifications up top, a changeable menu structure that continues to display items for the active app even if it is minimized back to the dock.
