Alleged Windows 10 installation interface shown in leaked screenshot [Update: Now with video]
Microsoft is still tinkering with the user interface aspects of Windows 10 and that apparently extends to the operating system's installation screen. Today, a screenshot made its way to the Internet that allegedly shows a pretty major revamp of that screen.
The leak comes from the OSBetaArchive forums via an anonymous source. As you can see, the screen shows that installing Windows 10 is represented by a ring that shows the percentage of its progress in the center. At the bottom, there are percentages shown for specific installation tasks. A few days ago, Neowin reported on the same UI screen but showed a mockup, rather than a screenshot of the actual progress ring.
While a new UI for the installation progress may be a small thing in the overall development of Windows 10, it shows that Microsoft is open to making changes. It's more than possible that this UI is not final, however, and could be changed again before Windows 10 officially launches later this year.
Update: One of the forum members of the same website has now posted an actual video that shows the new installation UI in action

As I just said: Microsoft is good at making great products, and really dedicated when it comes to support... That I have no complaints about, and is the only reason why most of us are still here.
They just need to quit the BS, and get these products into peoples pockets, and keep them on peoples desk.. That really is their main issue. If MS can figure that out everything else will fall into place.......
....... Honestly I think Apple, and Google, are successful because they aren't afraid to cross the line, take chances, and just go for it... MS can think outside the box, but thinking sometimes is as far as they go, or it takes much to long to implement cool ideas... But, they do have very good ideas... Nevertheless, I personally would like to see them get a little dirty, be less conservative. They definitely need to be more "in your face" aggressive with their approach.
Just my opinion, though.....
Heck, works for Carl's Juniors.... Kate is pretty damn dirty, and it made me go try a burger.

Basically apply the lessons learned with Xbox, and Surface, across the board.. Those things are resonating well with the average consumer.
Seriously, people are just so spoiled with coolness, and the latest trends in technology, that total functionality isn't enough even in the workplace.... It's just a different era, and MS has to appeal to people accordingly...
Yeah that way it make the installation time pass by.
And after the installation she takes a tour of the OS, just like old days. ;)
I lost all my data and could only recover Windows from the recovery drive :(
You really want a percentage of how much of your computer has been booted? That may actually cause the booting to slow down, I think. That's my opinion.
