Before Windows 10 was released I was looking forward to it as Windows 8 done right
Me to, its definitely a step in the right direction for desktop users, but its worse on tablets. I think MS totally has the right idea with the "tablet mode" setting in the charms bar. Its implementation though is 1/2 baked.
The problem is that a whole host of things now suck for tablets. Take the replacement of IE with edge. Edge may be a great web browser for speed/standards etc, but it sucks to use because it lacks an ad blocker. The desktop version of IE had been stupefied so it doesn't understand running as a modern app anymore.
Then there is the fact that modern and desktop apps get mixed, and a desktop app running maximized (a great idea) fails to pull up the keyboard for entry most of the time. So your forced to disable tablet mode to access the manual keyboard icon.
I could write a 10k word article about all the good ideas with shitty implementations in windows, but whats the point.
Frankly, I'm not sure what the advantage 8/10 have over 7 for desktop users, nor the advantage 10 has over 8 for tablet users. 10 is a bunch of half baked crap, maybe 11 will be better.
