Windows 10sion: what's old is new again, and that's a problem | The Verge

Final sentence of the review: "Familiar is easy, it's safe, it's probably profitable. But in an industry that moves as fast as technology, familiar is dangerous."

"Windows 10 is Windows 7 plus a handful of the things about Windows 8 that worked best: Snap mode, beautiful Modern-style apps, always-updating live tiles, and now (finally) a universal app store that works across all screen sizes from phones to TVs. But it's still Windows 7. Windows 10 is based primarily on the desktop, not the radical new Start Screen of Windows 8; you'll find most things by going to the new-old Start Menu. "Everything runs in a window" is billed as an exciting new feature. There are bits and pieces of Windows 8 here, but Windows 10 will be more jarring for Windows 8 users than for users who haven't updated their computer software since 2006."
