    Microsoft is working on something they call 'Sets', a browser like tabbed interface that groups apps and files by project. It may be years before it's released and supposedly will only work with Apps from Microsoft's store. They do claim the 'Sets' version will be optional.

    Windows 10's future look could be Sets, a tabbed app interface Microsoft will start testing

    Who the hell wants another proprietary system that locks you into one company?

    To get an idea of where they may be going Stardock has released it's own version. Pretty sure it doesn't use Edge as it's foundation.........

    It would appear that Microsoft wants to go the direction Apple did.

    Windows 10 is so screwed up that I maintain a dual drive with windows 7 and 10 I use 7 most of the time because MS is screwing 10 up with so many update that the system is working as fast as the ori: DOS. Been thinking about using another operating system.

    I reverted back to Win 7 on my gamer but have Kubuntu 18.04 on my other desktop and this laptop.

    Edge is awful. Very buggy and quirky.
