    I made Windows 10 much more bearable by using Stardock apps such as WindowBlinds10, Start10, and Fences3 to customize it to my liking. A much better overall visual and user experience, at least to me. I have both a Mac mini and a customized CyberPowerPC. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. I am a little more productive on my mini, and of course the PC is much more suited for gaming and other graphics intensive tasks.

    True, but worth every penny. Right now the complete Object Desktop package of apps is on sale for 50% off @ $24.99. You can also get a free 30-day trial on most of the individual programs to see if it's something you really want or need. Just some food for thought.

    There's also a lightweight and free Start menu utility, it's Classic Shell.

    can the next version of windows just have a basic UI, no cortana, notification sidebar, no flashy BS that rotates, and flips, and has "ooooo prettyyyyy" glass/shadows etc....in a mocked up overly complicated menu? seriously, i like to use my system for work, and for games. i do not want commercials for other ****e you are selling, i want to be able to navigate to my hardware/software settings within 2 clicks, i would also prefer my "search" at the bottom left to search the computer, not the internet...

    we should have a readily available and functional option to turn off this trash that either A. consumes resources or B. just looks....i dunno like something a person who is mostly a "mobile" user would enjoy because they have never actually used a device other than a smartphone

    thank you

    Glass already back with Fluent Design, you can see blur effect in UWP.

    Also, what do you mean of "notifications sidebar"?

    You can actually disable Cortana by editing registry or using Winaero Tweaker.

    You can actually search for files or UWP/desktop apps in your computer in Windows 10.

    Also, there will be no Windows 11, 12, etc. Instead of a new major version, Microsoft turned Windows into a service and pushing feature updates for Windows 10.
