    I am just curious whether the latest beta's have shown drastic improvements over Windows 8.1 (fully updated) ? I could care less for Start Menu/Button or whatever because IMHO it is absurd to base your opinion of an OS on a small UI tweak/change.

    I'm a gamer. I want performance, stability, smoothness, and more performance. Will I see any improvement in those areas if I switch to Windows 10 when it comes out, ASIDE from DirectX 12 drastic improvements, which AFAIK will affect only DirectX 12 titles.

    What we are seeing now is a Technical Preview, with lots of telemetry, debugging and tracking enabled. Since it seems no slower than 8.1 in my estimation, I'm guessing it will seem a bit faster once it RTMs and all that stuff is turned off.

    -Universal Apps
    -Xbox integration
    -Devices sync
    -Cortana
    -Spartan
    -Continuum
    -HoloLens
    -Task View
    -Improved Settings
    -Native MKV, HEVC and FLAC support
    -Notifications
    -DirectX 12
    -It uses less space
    -It's faster
    -It's more stable

    And more...

    The long time awaited wheel scrolling of not focused windows is finally back, it was available even on win 3.11 trough the logitech drivers (can be enabled on win 8.1 too via a registry setting, but not on win 8)

    The command prompt is finally almost on par with a decent Linux terminal emulator from year 2000 or so.

    The centralized notification is nice, the virtual desktops too, a win 7 style, network flyout is back

    The start menu is still crap, and Classic Shell is still required.

    Not more else is worth to be mentioned.

    I'd say Windows 10 is going to be the best Windows ever because it's got the start menu, the full screen start menu, universal Windows apps running like a desktop app, builds coming at once so you don't have to wait three years for the next build, more beta builds to explore, new technologies to discover, everything is good about Windows 10 and you can still disable automatic updates!

    No, not really. Indeed, it is worse, because metro has become even more ingrained, more pervasive. In 8.1, you could eliminate metro far more than in 10.

    A major step backward, imho.

    It's not required but matter of taste.

    I used Classic Start only with Windows 8. I never installed it on Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.
