They could push something incredible out to live tiles tomorrow, and it's doubtful I'd notice before the end of the year even though I use W10 at home.

0) Reboot PC (after patch Tuesday)

1) Mash a half dozen shortcuts on my taskbar. (Probably should just add them to the startup folder, but I can't be elephanted...)

2) Launch an occasional game via Steam (either the client or the tray icon).

3) Once or twice per month: Start button + search text + enter. This's the only time I have the start menu open; but my eyes are on the left edge where the searchbox/results are and not paying attention to any of the live tiles to the right.

4) Patch Tuesday, time to reboot.
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?

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
