At least, given the general rule "every other Microsoft OS sucks" and given that Win 8 was a dissappointment, Win 10 should be a decent one.

Finally got around to installing the Technical Preview on my machine. Thus far it seems to be passing regression testing for what I usually do on the PC. Time will tell how I will experience it further though.

The change that stands out to me the most off the install is the change to the borders on the edge of program windows. These have been reduced quite a bit. You could always change this if you knew what you were doing before in previous versions but if you never did, it does stand out. I haven't had a negative nor positive thought about it.

For those thinking of trying the new version: Windows 10 doesn't work for the legacy trainers that won't work for IE10+ / Windows 8. Windows 10 still uses IE11 as the base version.

I am waiting eagerly for the rise of SteamOS.

Of course, I'll be disappointed.

They went straight to 10 because 7 8 9.
In all seriousness though... They went with 10 because of some compatibility issues with third party software that took a shortcut in their code when trying to detect the OS. Example: if(version.startswith("Windows 9")

Yeah about the trainers I figured that much and it's sad.
I remember asking P if someday he plans to make these trainer compatible and he got mad because it takes alot of work and not many people are nostalgic as some are.
Anyway I know nothing about programming but I always wonder if it's possible to write a script and apply it on all of those trainers, or if each trainer requires different codes..

It is not possible to write a script to do that. Even if it was, it still would mean recompiling every. single. version. of. every. trainer. and reuploading every. single. one.

That's too big of an LOE.

Well there are facts that we just need to accept like the fact that Jessica Simpson can't rap..

I look forward to the new release myself. I really like the fusion that seems to be happening between Windows 7 and Windows 8. I have always been one of the crazy people who adopt the latest and greatest Windows early. The only time I was burned was with Windows ME. I could not get a stable instal on any of the 3 machines I owned at that time. I keep the disk around to remind me of the folly of early adoption. For the most part it works. It kept me from adopting Vista for about 3 weeks after release.
