Good to see improvements, but really Microsoft has all the money to hire the best coders, the best ideas, the best people to take computing far ahead. I've used lots of different OSes over time. Windows sure has evolved a bit but so have all the others. Linux and OS X are pretty viable alternatives for anything but gaming.

Here's why I prefer windows 10.
The Start menu actually lets me group things really easily and find what I need quickly. Additional folders make it even better. I don't like the small hierachal structure of the previous windows versions and leaving all my icons on the desktop is choatic.
The store makes things way easier to deal with. Spotify and many other w32 apps have been converted to the store and when updates come they come automatically through the store without me worrying about anything.
UWP is much cleaner and easier to deal with. I don't use that many w32 apps and those I do i hope end up in the store.
Security is much better and focused.
The search bar in the taskbar is awesome. Anytime I need something I just type it right in the taskbar.
Game mode in creators update is AWESOME. I used to play skyrim modded to hell and get constantly drops in fps, it now always runs smooth. Don't know how they do it but love it. All games run way better.
That being said.
I hate live tiles so I always have to turn them off after pinning.
I hate that there is no uniformity to the tiles and how they look. I also hate that they center justify the icon of tiles but the text is always left justified.
If none of these matter to you, then yah i mean who cares right? Just stick with what you always use.
