|The Start Menu is back in something approaching the form|
that everyone knows and loves.
Windows 10 is altogether more polished. When in desktop mode you are in desktop mode. It's as if Windows 8 never happened. Yes, the Start Menu is back bringing with it Microsoft's modern style interface in a much better interpretation of live tiles for a desktop environment.
Reliability has been pretty good so far. I found that Windows Explorer would crash when used to view images from a folder on Onedrive, and occasionally an app would fail to start. In the main though I could be using a production ready version of the OS. I've found that Chrome, Open Office and Steam all run without any problems; and more importantly my laptop feels like a laptop rather than the second class citizen it felt like in Windows 8.
Windows 10 feels like Windows 7 to Windows 8's Vista.
And that's a good thing.
