This latest (upgrade) version created a touch screen of charms when using remote desktop and removed the taskbar functions.  It is totally useless in RDP until this is fixed.

I tend to use pen and paper when I design object models or database schema from scratch.

When can you create something for compiling an App in Windows Phone, Android and iOS using Visual Studio?  Also when are you going to get a door handle for what I assume is a closet?

+Scott Hanselman Is it possible to completely remove all of those ugly and unnecessary space wasting tiles from the start menu? i.e. get a windows 7 style start menu without the other crap. Windows 7 looks a lot nicer in my opinion (though 10 is improving)... is it possible to change/remove the ugly flat space wasting window look and feel? i.e. can we change or eliminate that big bland almost empty window look we often see in Windows 10 with those giant buttons and ugly colors, preferably into something more like Windows 7? Seems to be a lot of emphasis on tough screen use...who would really want a touch screen on a desktop PC... except those who want to develop massive shoulder muscles?

Story
Tagline
Scott Hanselman is a former computer science professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee working as an Architect in Web Developer Tools. I am a failed stand-up comic, and current book author.
Introduction

My name is Scott Hanselman. I work out of my home office for Microsoft as a Principal Program Manager for our Web Platform, aiming to spread good information about developing software, usually on the Microsoft stack. Before this I was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree, for 6+ years. I was also involved in a few Microsoft Developer things for many years like the MVP and RD programs and I'll speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen.

Before Corillian and Microsoft I worked as a Principal Consultant at a local Microsoft Solution Provider called STEP Technology, speaking, writing, consulting, and very much not getting rich during Web 1.0. Even earlier, I worked at a Car Parts Data Warehouse called Chrome Data, and before that I had a small company that specialized in internationalization and thunking. I've also been an Adjunct Professor at OIT, teaching C#. On the side, I created the first PalmPilot Diabetes Management System in 1998 and sold it to a healthcare company five years later. It's now in limbo, but I'm trying to get it released as Open Source.

What else would you like to know?

I am an early adopter, it seems.  I ran Tweak Computer Support BBS, with some success, a very long time ago. I was a FidoNet node. I have nice teeth and love cheese amongst other things. I like Tools, and I've co-written some books. I'm diabetic. I like studying Amharic and Zulu/Ndebele and listening to African Music as well as other more diverse music. I know Black Hair and can both braid and cornrow. I have a podcast. I hack on hardware and waste time. I do Open Source. I am good at Excel and keep my resume mostly up to date for no reason. We speak Sign Language to my son and my wife speaks Ndebele. I have a great family and have had great teachers and a fantastic wedding with a great Cake Topper. I don't sleep too much. I write a lot. I'm trying to raise $50,000 for Diabetes research.

That's me, today. I'll be different tomorrow, hopefully better.
