I played a little with Windows 10 and created a few screenshots. If you didn't have the time to install the Technical Preview, you'll get an overview of some of the UI changes.

The screenshots are from the Windows 10 Enterprise version. I am running it under VirtualBox. Everything works fine so far; the only real problem I had was that I was unable to install the VirtualBox Guest Additions. The installation failed with the error message "The VirtualBox Guest Additions cannot be installed on this version of Windows." If you know a workaround, please let me know. I also have a problem with double clicks. I guess it is just a configuration issue.

    With WIN + TAB you can launch the new Task View and with WIN + CTRL + LEFT or RIGHT you can switch between desktops.
