ReFS[^] is MS's entrant in the next generation FS competition (vs ZFS and BTRFS). It was first offered as a not-recommended for production public preview for server 2012; 8.1 x64 brought it to the client space. However the initial version had a lot of caveats and missing feature checkboxes vs the competition. So I'm curious if some of the limitations have been removed/boxes checked, or if there've been any performance changes since the initial version was tested 2 years ago.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Windows 8 already did that for me. Actually, it was not the silly product itself, but the many little changes they made to push us into the 'right' direction. I'm not going to invest any more time in a platform where my work can become obsolete before it's even finished.

Windows 7 was good - stable, fast, friendly...
windows 8.x was a playground for touch, but Microsoft was unable to realize that there is a very few desktop computers with touch (not to talk about servers!), so forcing touch is just can't go!
Windows 10 getting all the good from 7 (and from 8.x, as there were good things too), but touch is now an option YOU can choose!

I am a user of Microsoft Windows OS, and I always will be a user, a happy user. I have always loved the UI and UX of Windows, and I believe that other giants follow Microsoft's new fashion in digital world. I have never used Linux, so I apologize if it hurts the feelings of Linux users, such as Ubuntu etc.
For example, When Windows XP announced those new styling techniques for Checkboxes, Input elements, Google at that time announced the new UI for itself, that included less buttons, more textual interface where user had to navigate to new pages, paging what you can say. Search result paging.
When windows 7 was releases, box-shadow was added to CSS and many more functions and people like developers used to use the Microsoft's main guide for the UX on internet. 3D images and their styles were used, mouse interactions on all elements were applied, go back 2 years, what Google, Facebook, Tumblr be like? They were all having the same feature, and had the :active, :hover, :focus being applied to their themes. Alpha- was introduced (alpha is the amount of opacity in elements) and glowy stuff and all that things. Which windows 7 had, were applied to internet UI and UX.
Windows 8 came up, everything went back to be more opaque. Special effects were removed, and content was to be added in x-axis rather than y-axis. You can see this example being applied to MySpace, if anyone of you is a good user of MySpace. Tumblr has changed the theme of their, Google's logo has changed to make sure they're upto standards. Facebook has changed the UI (for Android and Mobile) versions and might change their desktop version too.
I really believe, Microsoft is the basic and building block for the UI and UX for the public. Windows 10 anyways is going back to Windows 7 in many ways, but will be a better windows, since windows 8 lags in some ways. However, windows is still better than many other OSs.

Saturday I updated my home rig from 8.1 to 10!
I never had a smoothest upgrade and it was a flawless.
In short it's fast and reactive and it removed all of the small nasty W8.1 things. New start menu is great!
Can't wait for the final release!
