Windows 10 Insider Preview: Part 1 – Introduction and First Look

In the next series of posts, I will experiment with the latest version of Windows 10:

Desktop

As you can see, I am running the latest (as of now) version of the Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview (build 10074). The first thing I did was install Google Chrome, and now I am writing this post from within Windows 10. I have to say that it is a huge improvement from Windows 8.1, since the Start menu can be used just as you could with Windows 7:

…but wait, whats this?

AlarmApp

…is this an Alarm app? YES! Finally! A built-in alarm app! I’m liking this already.

However, I am not a huge fan of the “Search the web and Windows” thing in the taskbar. Not to worry! This is easy to get rid of too:

And now it looks great. I do also like multi-desktops:

More on this soon, as I get more used to this new OS!
