Betteridge's law makes life so simple.

In this case, I'm not sure why anyone should be excited about an update that makes it easier to ignore new features. They still have a very schizophrenic interface. And that start menu is a mess.

I'll stick to linux where I can decide what window manager or desktop environment I'll use.

Not a bad idea, perhaps it is time for Windows to become more like unix with users able to customise all parts of the OS to suit their needs. That way it would be flexible enough to endure another two decades as the dominant OS. As it is Google may well yet eat Microsoft's lunch.

There are already companies like Stardock capitalizing on this by offering paid software to change the look and behaviour of your desktop. There's clearly demand.
