So as for not restarting the computer I messed around with the desktop or phone interface what they call it. All I can say is I still don't care for the layout of it and the hidden places they put everything. I went to use calculator and it had to load where in my main Windows 7 / XP systems it instantly comes on when I click calculator. So is everything in Windows 10 considered apps? It seems like Windows 10 has some much stuff running that for me I don't use and don't need. I still run Windows like 2000/XP and run what I want or need. Just for a small example, Windows 10 wants to know your location and tell you the weather and temp there.
The main thing I would like if this is suppose to be the last version of Windows is to give everyone the option to pick their style layout. For me I want Windows Classic and it would put all the files in the normal locations for users of the classic Windows and have the normal start menu. I still use my Windows XP machines but moved to Windows 7 to go online since the web browsers are getting smaller and unsupported webpages are getting bigger. I will probably be a Windows 7 hold out like XP, but have a copy of Windows 10 if really need it.
From what I heard Windows 10 may not be the last version of Windows but the next will be a online only version of Windows called just Microsoft Windows. Probably from what we heard before Windows as a service. So the next version of Windows will be online only and may not even have a offline version since the os will be internet dependable. Not sure if I'm right but is office a online only service now and the OneDrive?

7 is much more futureproof than XP thanks to 64 bit. 8 and 10 weren't improvements like 7 refined Vista and XP was over everything before it; rather they are Microsoft's attempts to reinvent the wheel and in the process they are curbing productivity everywhere.
10 tries and completely fails at being an OS friendly to technophobes. It totally fails for education purposes due to its bloatedness and slowness. Chrome OS is better than Windows 10.
