    As long as the interface keeps on being designed with tablets in mind, it won't be better than 7, I'm afraid.

    I will detect your system if it's a desktop with a mouse and keyboard then :
    - just a Desktop whole system with the classic start menu.
    - you can run modern apps in desktop with a classic title bar.

    If your system has a touch screen:
    - Start screen will be your system navigation choice.
    - modern apps will run full screen with the ability to open more than one modern app at the same time.

    Tablet will use a whole different design which will be kind of hybrid interface.

    - windows 10 has a kernel version of 10
    - number 9 is a bad number in Japan (nokia doesn't include a mobile series 4xxx because it's a bad number in India)

    They asked the users not to setup this preview on the every day use PCs also.

    That's why I set my VirtualBox network adapter to "not attached"

    All in all, it seems to be Windows 8 with a fuckered Start menu, and the forced font smoothing is still there (do you think they'll fix it if I complain a lot?).

    • Facts: Desktop part and kernel are both _a lot_ better in win8 than in win7. I hate working on my win7 workstation at work.
    • Facts: Metro does indeed suck, but you can manage it in such a way you see it only 5 seconds, right after startup!
    • Facts: Win10 is an improvement on W8 since they've listened to the hatred about Win8's tiles
    • Facts: The tiles are actually quite nice once you've finally gotten used to them. Too bad it was forced, though.
    • Facts: I never used the start menu anyway. That thing was a mess and the metro start menu still is. And it will still be a mess in win10, 11 and 12 because people refuse to adjust to anything new. Launchy all the way. In win8, the search feature on the metro start menu actually beat launchy in usefulness and is now my main start feature.
    • Facts: Nosey tech previews are good. We want to give as much issues as we can back to MS so they can fix it before it's final.
    • Facts: You're not allowed to bitch about those things since it's a tech preview, it's public and it's free
    • Facts: They're actually quite open about it like Lucius said
    • Facts: Most people probably shouldn't be running a tech preview anyway.
    • Facts: Tech previews are not suitable for main os, only as a preview, seeing if the feel suits you and mainly to squash bugs.



    Glad to clear out common misunderstandings!

    @Sazzy : I love my Lumia phone alot which is a windows phone powered device and I love its faboluse start screen and those lovely live tiles which save my a lot and a lot of time.
    I have tried win 8 on regular system and microsoft surface (not pro version but still winRT has the same UX) and I was like .. Wow win8's start screen design on touch screen was damn good and fast.

    I really love live tiles and start screen so I will be glad if ms let's it there as option for those win8 lovers (believe me they are a lot :)).
    Just let people get their start menu back with the ability to run metro (modern) apps into desktop mode (win 10 will have multi desktop) and every one will be totally happy.

    I'm sure it will stay. It will most likely just be configurable. (With or without hackey ways like tools or reghacks)
    Honestly, I'm pretty annoyed the fake startbutton was added in 8.1. I prefered it when there was none. I hope I can turn that shit off again and go back to pressing windows key + typing. It fills up a spot on an already short taskbar (screen is in portrait mode)

    Honestly, win8's start screen is not horrible, but it's far from ideal for usage with a mouse. The only reason mine's usuable is because i keep it clean as fuck, unlike most people. It gets cluttered fast and then it's easy to understand why people hate it.
    Newer laptops that come with an additional touch screen are kinda nice, though.

    tech previews are a bit too hacky to install, imho. A beta or even an RC is more enjoyable. (even though win8 was very usable already in tech preview)
    I've read what's changed, and it's mostly solving what people have been bitching about in win8.

    the console improvements are nice, but it's still shit compared to linux and os x. Cmder is probably still the better choice so far.

    Performance under 8 was actually better than 7's for me - one of the reasons I resent the font smoothing and forced Aero all the more.
