FIVE Things (NOT 10: these are REAL) from the WINDOWS 10 event

There's a genuine difference between "typing the first 2-3 letters of the app you want to run once you open the start menu" (which most users have been doing since the start menus have had a search/run box) and command-line management of a system.

"hit the start button, type WORD" is actually the quicker route but it's pretty dishonest to compare that to command-line management of OS features.

I like Powershell; I understand that most armchair admins only do it part-time and prefer point-and-click. I don't insult them and call them shills if they state that preference.
