    of course windows 10 isn't out yet in it's final form but does anyone knows if the system fluency,under the hood processing and eventually all around usability will be smoother,faster and "lighter" then win8? does Microsoft engineers are even aiming for that goal ?

    Can't tell you exactly it is lighter but feels heavy, specially with the performance.

    looking at the specifications of devices that microsoft has launched recently from low end to high end their has been no device with 512mb ram and even the low end lumia 435 has snapdragon 200 processor. so these are suggestuve that win 10 might be a a giant in aspect of resources. ;) good day

    Personally I think 'newer' OS can never be lighter or perform better than the older one in same hardware. There might be new memory management, faster animation, or anything to make it 'seems faster' but once the hardware hits its limit, that new limit is always lower than the limit from older OS, in exchange of new features. The main purpose of a new OS is to get the most out of new hardware, to sell more new hardware, not for the older one.

    I expect it to be about the same, if not lighter.

    Windows has only gotten lighter since Vista debuted.

    you mean on the desktop, right?
    I assume it's even a little "lighter". they were already talking about how the W10 will have the same PC requirements as W8.1. and Gabe Aul tweeted that they are constantly working on under the hood optimizations. also the footprint on your hard disk will be smaller than with 8.1.

    Actually one of Microsoft's goals from the beginning was to make windows 10 more streamlined, responsive and have a smaller fingerprint then windows 8 had. Unfortunately you will never really get the FEEL for the final release until it goes gold and the support/debug system is removed. Quite a bit of overhead in these current builds. Usually you would have to wait for a Customer Preview release but the way they are managing the TP system now I'm not sure if there will actually be one.

    As long as you have an SSD it won't make a difference :D

    Unless it's one of those small devices with a small SSD, ex. an 8 inch 16GB tablet, a smaller footprint would definitely be an improvement.
