Given the look and feel of Windows 10 is completely different to that of 7 and the user effectively has to relearn how do do everything anyway, especially if they were used to doing more than just clicking on an icon to open an application.

Even as a person with years of experience in finding where Microsoft has hidden things in subsequent versions, I find Windows 10 extremely frustrating.

And Microsoft has quite the history with this.  "Hey, you know how familiar you are with the menu system in Office?  Well forget it because we're going to "the ribbon" and we've hidden half the functions you're used to using."

It's frustrating to the end-users of the system and it's frustrating to the technical staff that have to support it and field all the frustrated calls from end-users.

I'm currently using Linux at home and both Windows 7 and Windows 10 at work (I move between two offices, one of which has recently been "upgraded") and, while I can use Windows 10, I can't stand it.  "Improvements" should make work easier, not harder.
Thats exactly what drove me from Win10,to linux(ubuntu)I figured if I had to learn the os all over again,I might as well learn one that wasn't so annoying,and doesn't mess with my files in any way.Stuff stay right where I put it,even after updates.
Haven't been on the Forum for some time but still love and use Linux every day.

I don't know why some people accuse Joe of lying about Linux because what he says is the do I know ? Because I and many others use it every day.  Big Grin  Unfortunately there are nasty people everywhere on the Net as some of us have encountered and ignoring them at times is very hard.  Angry 

I'm no expert and I find Linux Mint (my fav) not hard at all...but I wanted to switch and learn because I wanted nothing more to do with Micro$oft.   Smile

Sweet! It is all about learning with life.  No one knows it all.
