I finally got round to downloading and installing the Windows 10 preview this morning to allow me to test our web app with it and the latest version of Internet Explorer. I had also wanted to take a look at Project Spartan but it seems that isn’t available yet.
Like so many others I wasn’t a great fan of Windows 8 but based on the very brief look this morning Windows 10 is a vast improvement on what went before. The start menu has been restored and the titles are not incorporated and it’s not a bad look.
There is also a revised looking “power” menu which makes a lot more sense than before.
Microsoft are in a good position in that the OS will be pre-installed on many machines but they have some work to do making up for the mess that was Windows 8.
