    Because the current settings menu has way less features than the original one and I'm a bit worried about that.

    No it won't have the complete control panel you are used to. You will have a royal screw up instead.

    Some settings will be in settings app with less functionality and visibility (Ex-Windows Update), some will be in control panel (Ex-Themes), some are simply gone (Ex-Icon settings).

    Most of the control panel will still be there but it will be relatively hidden for normal users. Setting will be sufficient most of the time.

    Hmm that would be good, but I've been hearing people saying that Microsoft plans to phase out control panel with RTM.

    Control panel will be there for power users, just like command line. For normal users, they won't bother with either control panel or command line.

    Any modern OS contains at least two "setting", one is based on UI, the other one is based on command line. If co-existence of more than one "setting" means "inconsistency", then only DOS is consistent, because it only has command line.

    I actually vote for the control panel, but it would be good if they redid the same thing in metro. The current state is also good.

    I think like that:

    Settings apps: users settings, simple settings.

    Control Panel: Advanced settings.

    Powershell = godmode.

    seems like things have gone full circle. especially on the server side. originally everything was command line, then slowly it reached a point where everything was done explicitly in the gui, now we are almost back to the point where management is done solely in Powershell. Pretty much all settings applets in windows 10 are just a graphical frontend to a powershell script. so if you REALLY want a consistent experience, Use powershell.
