    To have widgets(as Windows 7 have gadgets)and long tap background to change the wallpaper(and add widget in background) will surely enhance users experience in Windows 10 for phone.

    I've never really liked gadgets and widgets imo. They've always looked too "cluttery" to me and really only do simple tasks.

    I really like the live background idea though

    I think MS has to be careful not to give us too many bells and whistles on the Start screen. There's a common belief here that more options can only be a good thing, and I'm not sure that's true. Android has been looking a lot better recently, especially since some of the manufacturers started putting real effort into creating better custom skins for their handsets, but it's not that long ago that the users went a bit overboard with the idea of customisation. I'm going back some years here but there was a time when every time I'd see an Android phone in the pub, it would inevitably be this dog's breakfast of colours, textures and shapes all fighting for attention, as if someone had crossbred iOS with Geocities and Angelfire.

    Windows 10 could easily end up as a dancing, winking collection of weird tat unless MS puts a leash around its design. If anything, MS needs to find a way to cut down on settings and options, partly for the sake of the menus but also to save us from ourselves.

    THANK YOU! I've been saying this since WP 8.1, everyone's begging for options, but an option loses value when its buried under 100 different toggles. honestly, we've seen this happen before, remember that oh so cluttered settings screen that Microsoft just recently fixed? Yea, that is a perfect example of what adding tons of settings does, back when WP7 was around, that settings menu was perfectly fine, but as settings were added, things got more and more cluttered! eventually you need to make a sub category, it gets to full, so then it gets a sub category, then IT gets to full, its gets a subcategory!
