its gui is basically the same as any other version on windows but with a 2nd optional gui called metro, it still has control panel, file explorer,
the enhancements are quite good, system file protection, file history and in-depth error logging.
installing is a breeze as well. one old amd800 box on some obscure m/b i used as a server for a 1980s print plotter installed without a hiccup and
didnt even had to add extra drivers. a modern box with a ssd raid array installed fully working in 9 minutes from usb and thats faster than i could
get a vm running with any other o/s.
using libraries is a hit hit n miss at times but that mostly venders dont apply microsoft policy for doc storage
but all in £40 or so for a o/s is reasonable
