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

+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.

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

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.

Please +Lenovo, bring back the classic Thinkpad!
I still use my T500, and don't like what I see in the current Thinkpad line.

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