You can use 3rd party programs to get rid of the
ribbons and make it look like an older windows version.
Accessibility wise, windows 10 isn't an issue
with me, but there are some other problems that
worry me, such as forced updates, and the fact
they make it so difficult to turn all updates off.
I don't like an operating system that takes a lot
of control away from the users.
