Just a in depth review of good, bad, and if you would maybe like to get it!

Good

-Xbox compatibility and features for your xbox
-New windows design
-Faster gaming with an all new engine
-Free
-You can mount an iso
-Can have a different background on each monitor. I run 4 monitors so this is kind of nice
-Cortana is pretty smart, although I don’t really use her…
-Web search bar/tool is sometimes useful when your in need of finding something

Bad

-New windows design…
-Edge browser is broken
-Don’t use cortana that much kind of useless to me
-Your going to find a lot of windows 8 features and flaws (apps, useless things, ect)
-Metro apps, ALL of them. Really, I’ve tried all of them, lame just lame. Not even useful on a phone. And they are UGLY.
-Settings app. We already have control panel, please leave the settings there.
-Turning off UAC disables access to some settings
-Start Menu all programs list sorted by alpha Useless, let me make my own groups.
-Lack of options on installation ie: Do not install apps, Do not install one drive, do not install Cortana, do not search the web. Or go ahead and do these things per user preference.

These are just my opinions… but the new OS is to me is a Windows 8 2.0. They are going way too far in “New features! And useless tools!” then just basic things. Hope this will help you a bit more.

If I find more things I will add them but this is basically all of the things I liked and disliked.

Thanks for Reading.
