RE: Windows 10
Pretty funny I'd say lol. Adding features to the command line and bringing back the start menu... It can't be a coincidence that all of the computer savvy users had complained about its removal in Windows 8.

cheers

RE: Windows 10
Alright, so I've determined my lag issue is an incompatibility between VMware Workstation 10 and Windows 10. I've created 4 VMs on different machines, each more powerful than the last, with the same settings, and they all suffered the same symptoms: driver issues during install for NICs and audio; lag during boot-up, shutdown, and after several hours of use; and a glowing disregard for my attempts to a few programs installed. I suppose I can pull out a old machine from my closet and load it on there. :(

As for the Start Menu, yeah, tech savvies complained, but so did the non-tech savvies. They, like all users, just got use to the Start Screen (because Microsoft said they had to) and moved on. I've always preferred command line, but there is something to be said for a quality GUI. Still not a fan of the blocks in the Start Menu, but it's progress, so can't complain. ^^'

RE: Windows 10
I'm still using it as a primary OS. I can't say for sure what features existed already in Windows 8 (Because I used Windows 8 once), but I'm liking it so far. I've lost my tile-virginity and added a few tiles in my start menu, I like being able to pin folders in there for quicker access. Dual-monitor support seems better to me than Windows 7.

I hate how a lot of software is not compatible, which makes me want to go back to 7, however I'm hoping I can deal with 10 long enough until it's official release.

RE: Windows 10
Honestly man, Windows 8 with Start8 really quite good. You get almost all of the benefits of Windows 10 while retaining software compatibility and ensuring stability.

On a side note, isn't it interesting how the likes of UltraMon, whose spread was previously vast amongst technologists like ourselves, have become insignificant with the advent of Windows 8 and now Windows 10.

RE: Windows 10
This is actually the first experience I've had with 2 monitors (less than a week) so I can't compare the two 3:

RE: Windows 10
So, perhaps I'm really dumb.. but my cmd in Windows 10 still doesn't allow ctrl+ anything... haha.

Either way, it's great to see the start menu back. I was kind of getting used to the other start screen though. I currently have my tiles nice and organized to my liking..

Windows 10 so far is very impressive. Multiple desktops is nice for users with only one monitor, other than that it seems semi-useless.

Edit, I guess.. it would be cool to have a desktop set up per monitor, without having to figure out which monitor a specific application is on.

RE: Windows 10
I didn't have to enable anything and Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V worked for me by default.
