The TCAT Shelbyville – Technical Blog put together this nice visual overview (75+ screenshots) of Windows 10 and the change(s) that are occurring. I personally have not installed Windows 10 and have been following along since its’ introduction to the public (for preview testing).
My intent, as was with Windows 8, is not to touch the operating system until it is released. When Windows 8 was released and I finally exposed myself to it, I immediately knew Windows 8 was going to be difficult for users (due to the interface changes).
My instincts are telling me different with Windows 10 as you will see (and read) in the TCAT Shelbyville article. To be honest I am really tempted to download and try Windows 10; however, I don’t want to spoil my excitement. I am also reading that Windows 10 is going to be FREE to Windows 7 and Windows 8 (8.1) users for a period of one year (which is a nice marketing tactic on Microsoft’s part).

If you have Windows 8 or 8.1 you probably think that Windows 10 isn’t going to be a lot different. You will see from the screenshots below that there isn’t a lot of navigation differences. What you will see is performance difference. Not just the look of the icons but the true performance differences when navigating and moving across your network.
The first operating system truly made for touchscreens and pcs.
In the screenshots below, we go from 9879 to 9926 with Cortana. And where is the Charms bar? It’s not there. Look for Settings in the menu (See the last pictures below)
The login primarily stays the same as Windows 8.1. The login screen contains the date, time, network status and battery information. After swiping the screen or hitting enter, you’ll see the familiar login where you can select a user, restart, shutdown, reboot, network and accessibility options.
