That's very complicated compared to winforms. I would never be able to come up with that solution by myself.
The music app has only made one improvement since Windows 8 was released: play music from Onedrive. Windows Media Player had a lot bigger improvements between Windows 98 and XP.
The Mail app in Windows 10 has gone worse now that Word is used to render HTML emails. It's now just as bad as Outlook: http://imgur.com/a/J1r7S
Edge? It seems there is only 1 team working on that and they focus 100% of their time supporting new web standards. I like that, but what about the interface?
I feel like Microsoft doesn't even bother with the apps. You certainly don't need to upgrade to Windows 10 for the new apps. I'll be staying with Windows 8.1 for the next couple of months until I see some real improvements.
You guys seem to forget Microsoft receives 20-30% on all Universal App sales. This should be the replacement income for lost Windows sales. Sadly Microsoft is not very serious with their own apps and app store. But hey, Solitaire is now freemium for only 10$/year.
Modern Applications - The store looks like * since Windows 8. Microsoft does have a great example they can follow, like Apple's app store. But for some reason they stick with this ugly layout.
Modern Applications are still slow and don't provide anything new compared to the native ones that shipped with Windows XP. Can anyone tell me what's new in Groove Music? Is the videoplayer better than WMP?
Let's take a look at how the new Mail app in Windows 10 renders HTML emails.
Start Menu - I actually like the fullscreen Windows 8.1 startmenu. I don't see any improvements for me.
Dual Monitor Support - Haven't tested this yet as I'm not going to install Windows 10 on my main desktop pc.
Cortana - Useless. Just like Bing, Cortana is not available in Belgium so this feature is completely useless to me, just like on the Windows Phone.
Automatic Driver Updates - Does ANYONE think this is a good idea? It's indeed not a good idea. For basic motherboard chipset or printer drivers that don't install anything besides a couple of dll's it's ok.
Multiple Desktops - Haven't really needed this.
GUI Uniformity - Complete mess.

Code Lense will come to Pro.
Does Microsoft create migration apps for Android and iPhone?

Something new to play with.
