Great, +Android Lollipop 'Adaptive Brightness' breaks the proximity sensor on my HTC One M7 (GPe). Good job breaking more stuff, +Google.

I finally get used to LVM, and then I look into btrfs (which looks like it has everything but the kitchen sink).
What to do, what to do...

After how many decades, Microsoft, you change things and place the main shortcut for VS 2015 in the root level? WHY?
...I bet Windows 8.1/10 is why. That's stupid. Place it where it belongs, with the rest of the VS shortcuts.

Good job, Microsoft.
The automatic upgrade to Windows 10 build 10162 broke stuff.
Fingerprint reader - broken
First reboot after upgrade - machine froze
Second reboot after upgrade - sound broken (another rebooted fixed it)
Explorer link pinned to taskbar - broken
Theme changed - annoyance
This is on a Thinkpad T500.
I hope this is something that will be improved significantly.

EDIT: At least the VPN interaction is somewhat improved. At least clicking on it takes you to the VPN subtab of settings now. I'd still rather have the connect/disconnect button directly on the network popup though, like in Windows 7.

Been using Windows 10 for about 12 hours. Reminds me of Windows 2.0, but with less color and lines.

maybe it is because you are biased against Windows from the start​

Lightning in the daytime. I couldn't resist it.

+Android Lollipop is pretty annoying. No silent mode and a weird 'priority notifications' mode instead, strange notification icons that don't make sense (* for priority notifications, why?, and an ! on my wifi and cell icons, even though my connection actually works fine).
And the biggest annoyance of all: the swipe to unlock changed from left-right to bottom-up. I keep opening the dialer by accident.
I do like the smart lock tool though, as it replaces a Tasker rule I had for the same.
I think KitKat was the best Android version so far.

After fixing a few annoyances, Windows 10 actually isn't bad.

Needs more struts, obviously.

Impressive image. Pluto is redder than I imagined.
NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft is at Pluto. After a decade-long journey through our solar system, New Horizons made its closest approach to Pluto Tuesday, about 7,750 miles above the surface -- roughly the same distance from New York to Mumbai, India – making it the first-ever space mission to explore a world so far from Earth.

Please +Lenovo, bring back the classic Thinkpad!
I still use my T500, and don't like what I see in the current Thinkpad line.
The ThinkPad brand has been around for a long time; the first model was introduced by IBM way back in 1992 and its Lenovo offspring are still being...
