Windows 10 Preview

I downloaded the new Windows 10 preview and took a peak.  The file copy and task manger are still there.  The start menu feels nice.  It it a little different then the windows 7 menu.  There is a mini version of metro (looks more like a windows phone screen) on the start menu.  I didn’t play with it too much but I didn’t mind it there.  The apps behave like normal programs rather then gobbling up the whole screen.  You can re-size them and and minimize them.  So far I am pretty happy with what I am seeing. The install still prompts you for a Microsoft account and to download and install apps you still need to be signed in.  Not my favorite thing but I guess it is true of all the app based software.

I will update after I have looked at it and installed some more software.
