In the Windows 10 Technical Preview, I've installed things using the regular .exe/.msi installers. I don't think I've even used the Windows Store in the preview.

2nd that. I'm running one system (touchscreen laptop) on 8.1 and one (desktop) on 10 now - I never see the "metro" interface on 10 on desktop. Not even sure it's still there. There's a metro-like start menu (which you'll never see because you'll install "Classic Start Menu") and a few Modernish apps (like "Settings") that you'll need to use every once in a while. By and large the desktop on 10 is indistinguishable from 8.1 and in daily use it's identical. If I had to pick one word to describe the transition from 8.1 to 10 it'd be "uneventful." Which is probably exactly what Microsoft should be shooting for after the mess that was 8.0. Upgrading from 7 to 10 should be easier than from 7 to 8.

That said there are some things that still don't work right, like Cortana, and the People app.

My everyone jumped on that one immediately! I hope everyone is still so excited when they get it installed.

I wouldn't say "Excited" would be the term to describe myself...Cautiously optimistic maybe.

You were certainly interested enough to reply immediately.
