UH, just had a first-hand experience how Windows 10 looks like for the consumer. It's really the LAST CRAP.
Some acquaintance brought in his newest Asus laptop for me to configure it as lean as possible. It had W10 on it. DANG.
Of course, Windows 10 itself bombards you with stupid messages every time: Cortana, "Wi-Fi Sense", something about one drive and a whole lot of other crap. It also shoves ads and recommendations into the start menu (get office, try the facebook app). Not to mention the forced upgrades (the first shutdown took two hours or so because of them!)
Already there Windows feels like late 90s Realplayer.
That's bad enough in itself, yet there is also a TON of crapware from Asus installed on it as well! So in addition to the W10 crap messages, you also get a shitton of BS side-popups from the "Asus cloud", the Asus product registration McAfee, Avast (yes, it had them both: LiveSafe from McAfee, Secureline from Avast), drop box, some stupid apps and God knows what else. Then suddenly a full screen program called the "Asus Giftbox" popped up, which got stuck or something, because only the task manager was able to remove it (the application itself didn't react to inputs).
Of course, the laptop was crawling.
Crapware is nothing new on Windows PCs, but because this time Windows 10 itself behaves like crapware, you have DOUBLE CRAPWARE.
I tried the built-in Windows 10 system restorer, it took hours and restored of course the full of crap installation.
And of course, there is no Windows 10 DVD or USB stick included for a (semi-) crap-free re-installation. BLERGH.
Had to make a ISO myself.
The experience was HORRIBLE. Much more so than in the past with W7 crapware.
And then they are wondering why PC sales stagnate!
If I had no experience with PCs before, after THAT experience today, I would have run away for a mac or phone or whatever and never touch anything W10 related with a ten foot pole.
