    Well, like I said before. If Microsoft changes the phone's UI to match that of the Surface and of the desktop Windows 8 (or, in this case, Windows 10), I will be gone. I had to help fix a problem on my friend's PC and his Surface last night (printing and sound problems), as well as help my mother with her laptop, and I for one completely hate the design. It's unintuitive, and quite frankly, it's ugly. Very ugly in fact. That sleek subway-map design language from WP7 and WP8 is what drew me to the phone, Nokia's products and the snappy response of the UI kept me on board. If Microsoft wants to go in this direction, they'll lose me as a customer.

    I don't like it. Hopefully this is just a very rough alpha of the OS.

    It was just a picture they used to help the demonstration. It wasn't even a functioning phone. I wouldn't get too excited.

    Joe Belfiore should have been sacked already with the Zune fiasco and he shouldn't be allowed to continue his career at Microsoft. Especially he should be allowed to infest a successful product with a failed product.
    But the problem with the Zune was timing & marketing, nothing to do with the product itself. The product itself was actually considered to be quite good but too late to the game. You can't pin that on Joe Belfiore.

    I loved my Zune. It was indeed too late, but it was superior to the iPod of the time.

    They said (at BUILD 2014 (first day keynote)) that it will use the same code of Office in Windows Store app.
    Does that mean (full) Office is coming to phones free of charge? Delightful!

    I'm not sure what you mean by UI to match the surface and the desktop will drive you away. We all know that desktop is a bit different but the UI of surface is almost the same as WP. I'm a bit lost here so it is possible for you give us some examples with pictures?

    The not being able to cut and paste is something they'll fix. That's just the crossing of metro and desktop not complete.

    If you mean cut and paste in apps as shown in the video, I'm going to point out that that example was to show that copy and pasting could be limited by enterprises and such

    You are right. But, you couldn't put Cortana menu in an app bar cause that's where the search bar of Cortana is so I can understand a hamburger in Cortana. But I don't see a point of hamburger in OneNote.
    Then you haven't used it on WP. The UI is pretty, but not all that good.

    For the life of me, I can't figure out what the huge difference is between the Metro UI in WP and Windows RT.

    I really hope W10 for phones has the black or white background and not the photo background like on the startscreen of W8 for desktop. Firstly the black theme helps battery life of amoled screens. Secondly live tiles cover the vast majority of a background photo. The point of live tiles is that they use the whole screen effectively, so of course they are going to cover it. I think the transparent tiles effect introduces in WP8.1 is a really nice compromise and I would be upset if they changed it to look like it does in that video.

    Also note that early on in the video Belfiore said that someone asked him on twitter if he was going to do a preview of W10 phone that day and he said he was not going to. I don't think think this is what it will look like.

    It's not really something I can provide concrete evidence for. But the Surface feels absolutely nothing like Windows Phone to me. The Surface is just Windows 8.1 on a tablet... It's clunky, unintuitive, doesn't feel natural, it makes it difficult to find anything... The classification and distinction between software and apps is just obnoxious and ridiculous. I just really dislike it.

    Interesting. I got a Surface Pro as my daily driver. I liked it so much, I then got a WP (920). I have a 930 on the way, at which time I'll sell the 920.

    I hope they'll give us an option WHERE to place the wallpaper... Either ON the tile or on the back of the tile...

    Considering both the xbox leaked ui and this, I think the final UI would give you the ability to adjust the opacity of the tiles, those tiles currently are not transparent, the final one i think will be.
    Heres an example of what it might look like

    Im not sure if they would give the option to blur the tiles though

    How many times does he say "in Windows 10 we're fixing that"?

    Joe Belfiore should have been sacked already with the Zune fiasco and he shouldn't be allowed to continue his career at Microsoft. Especially he should be allowed to infest a successful product with a failed product.
    the zune music feature was one of the main reasons i bought,
    and still use in windows phone everyday.

    Everyone needs to calm down and wait for January. If all goes wrong, that's when we rage on Twitter to @joebelfiore (the guy behind WP and vice president of windows too interestingly)
