Our beloved Start Menu is back in Windows 10. It may look a bit different though. The jarring changes between the desktop and metro interfaces from Windows 8 are gone, as metro app’s now run as a window on the desktop and can even be resized!
I have been using the Microsoft Windows 10 Technical Preview iterations as my daily driver on my desktop since January 2015 with no show stoppers. There were small niggles though, which is to be expected with pre-release software. I found Windows to be snappier and more response than Windows 7 on the same hardware.
As an additional bonus the Windows 10 upgrade will be free if you are running a legal copy of either Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1.
I think it will be a worthwhile upgrade – Reserve your copy of Windows 10 via the Windows 10 app.
