I decided to come back. Hi again! I'm now running Windows 10 in a VM on my laptop. Now I do apologize, this machine only has 4GB RAM and a Core-i5 processor, performance is not what one could expect from a full-blown install. Ask away! My thoughts so far:

Start menu is back. Yay? I dunno. It's cool to have a power button again though

Switching between start menu and start screen is super easy

Even with choked hardware (1 proc, 1 core, 2GB RAM) it's snappy
