I guess the Nexus series switch doesn't have this problem?

Cable boots are for sissies.

(Expletive deleted) a cable boot.

Seriously, **** cable boots.  They make it impossible to remove a cable without clamping a set of needle nose pliers around the whole thing.  

There shouldn't be RJ45 connectors anyway.  An ethernet port ought to be eight screw terminals and we strip and tie the cable ends like real electricians!

Nah, we should use either proper punch down blocks or wire wrap pins.

Still not liking the flat, 2d look of Windoze 10, but they are forcing this stuff down our throats. Sigh.

Except this time you probably won't have an option to switch to the "Windows classic" look, right?

If enough people want the windows classic shell, somebody will write it, same as they did for all the pseudo-start-menus for 8 and 8.1. Some of those were actually good.

Apparently, you can get third-part applications that restore the Windows 7 look-and-feel.

Yes, but that kind of thing is always dicey. I remember hacking Windows 98 to get rid of the browser integration for people who didn't want Active Desktop.
You'd think Micro$oft would stop doing this kind of crap. Now that self-righteous bitch Cortana is going to be in your face all the time even more than Clippy.

At least you could disable that.

Yeah, it's dicey, considering MS rejiggered and repokered the look and feel of the core widget toolkit. There may be some dependencies involved in trying to go back.

Supposedly you can switch a bunch of components to "classic view"

[ http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/change-windows-to-classic-view ]

Dunno. I'm not running Windoze 10 and I don't plan to anytime soon. Windoze 7 is sort of tolerable but I really want to move my $work desktop to a VDI so I can put Linux back on my laptop, or maybe switch to a tablet or something.

I saw no reason to upgrade to 8 or 8.1, those were a step backward. But with W10 being offered for free until about 7/29/2016, and MS installing upgrade-nagware on W7, what the hell.

I was pleasantly surprised that the W7 Backup and Restore control panel was added back in, after the insider build I had previewed that still had it missing (as was the case in W8/8.1.) And I now have full UASP support for my H87 motherboard, which is also nice.

Not so nice is the fact that they now use the Notifications applet for essentially advertising purposes - I am getting offered to try Office 365, over and over again.

I actually don't think I care that much about the flat look-and-feel to change to classic view.

Is Windows 10 being offered for free to Windows XP users?  Because that is what I duel boot with... or have in my virtual machine...  but I have no desire to upgrade unless it is for free.

I don't think so.

Windoze 10 is being offered as a "free" upgrade only to consumer versions of Windoze 7, 8, and 8.1. If you have XP, Vista, or a "professional" version of 7/8 you don't qualify.

You will of course need to sign a pledge promising to put all of your stuff on Azure and Office365, and never do business with Apple or Google again.

Hmm... not entirely true. I had a professional version of 7 running, and it upgraded to 10 without having to buy it.
