    I agree, the Windows 8 UI language was better, but it was turned into poison by tech media and popular sentiment. It doesn't matter how much MS refined it or improved it, as long as Windows looked like that, it was going to be ridiculed. Now that it's gone, everyone can calm the f*ck down and focus on what makes W8 and W10 better.

    I prefer some elements of W8.1, but let's get real here... Windows 10 is a step forward.

    Notification Center
    Action Buttons
    Unified Settings Menu
    Edge (much better with the exception of the swipe to navigate)

    And those are just the big guys. Sure, I have some problems with a handful of regressive UI changes here and there, but the whole thing is a step forward, feature-wise.
    Notification Center - Much needed
    Action Buttons - Nice as well
    Cortina - "Hey Cortana" "Hey Cortana" "Hey Cortana" (oh well, she stopped listening for some reason)
    Unified Settings - Nice
    Edge - In tablet mode, without TPLs and swipe it's a brutal experience for those who had this before this downgrade of a browser.

    So in a nutshell, they could have added Notification Center, Action Buttons, Cortana, Unified Settings, and Edge if they wanted to 8.1 UI Paradigm. The mouse and keyboard interface that people loved before it could have easily been augmented. It's the tablet experience that was the new and shiny object.

    How is Windows 10 that great when the tiles don't even update? Or when there's ads in my Start Menu? Or when it takes longer to log in? Or when I have no idea what software update is getting pushed to my workstation? No more picking and choosing what update gets installed.

    No thanks. Windows 10 makes you the product instead of it.

    There are certain apps and functions that I wouldn't mind on Windows 8, but l used 10 on my (now broke) Toshiba Encore 2 and l felt like l lost more than I gained. Sometimes 8 feels unfinished but 10 feels cumbersome.
