    Pretty trashy, like worst build ever. Win doesn't close start screen, still lock indicators problem, can't set a pin code, camera hub doesn't recognize a logitech webcam. But alot of peoople find it usefull.
    If you will do update to some previous build, you will keep 9901's apps including calc, camera beta, store beta, etc.

    Good for the most part. The biggest complains are the taskbar is "also" no longer transparent, I cannot get my Magic Mouse to work with this build, Windows Update has been moved and is annoying now and the calculator app is gone.

    The calculator app is there and redefined a little from the former ugly look to the aesthetic one.

    The mouse dragging is not stable. When dragging windows or files, it may loose the grip halfway through.

    Just wanted to chime in on this part about setting PIN code. With Microsoft Account, the PIN button is grayed out. Once your "verify" Microsoft Account, the option is no longer grayed out and will work at that point. I don't know about Local account though in this case, I am assuming it is likely grayed out as well. So it could be that Microsoft's only intending to allow that feature for Microsoft Accounts going forward.

    On all install's of the 9901 to create an PIN Code didn't worked, for me and I use verified MS Accounts only! What happen is that there is an Add button for to create a PIN Code, clicking on that bring up an windows for to key in a PIN Code and if you do it will say that those PIN Code is wrong! Normally we've to provide the Log On Password first and than type the 4 digit PIN Code twice, not so in 9901!

    Windows 10 build 9901 work's ok with the right setup, but windows 10 will be just as bad as windows 8/8.1, because it needs more than just a start menu, its needs an option to turn metro off and aero glass on.

    MICROSOFT use yours ears, Windows 10 needs a good start menu and aero glass. :rolleyes:

    Apart from having problem with 'Asphalt 8: Airborne' game menu not clickable other old apps are working fine. The problem is not related to Windows OS but from the early update by the game developers.

    Now that you can run Store apps in floating windows, it doesn't really matter the old Calculator is gone. The new one is there since 8.1 but it was kind of a joke because you could only run it in full-screen (imagine what that means on a big screen... an app like this is a good example why "always full-screen" doesn't work out for traditional workstations). I wonder if they're planning to ditch the old WordPad and Notepad as well and replace it with some modern version. As long as they're not going crazy and start to display ads in Calculator & Co. I'm fine with it.

    The calculator app can be minimized. Even the image I posted in my previous post is of a minimized one. As for Wordpad, it is out of my routine use. I often times don't use the default Notepad, I use a third party Notepad ++.

    I would guess that they probably will try to convert more and more of the smaller/simpler programs over to Modern style. Seems to be the pattern anyways. Larger programs like Office would be much more difficult though, unless they had some sort of Modern UI front end for the GUI which utilized a lot of the regular code under the hood. They have so many different testing builds too (fbl_****) which could each contain the latest development of a variety of things. fbl_ie, fbl_grfx, etc.

    So it will be interesting to see how things play out as time goes on.

    Now that the modern apps like Calculator don't have to be run full screen and seem to scale to size as you change it, I am starting to get used to it. A lot of users hate things first without really giving it a try over a set period of time. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow and embrace newer designs and technologies, as long as it makes functional sense that is. I'm still kind of on the fence about it, but trying to keep an open mind at the same time.

    Regardless of the Modern/Metro/Immersive graphical design, Windows 8.x and Windows 10 seem to be getting better "under the hood" as far as performance and security goes.
