Til this day, I will still say that Windows 8.1 was the best version of Windows I've ever used and every device that can still run it in my house does. But I understand that people are reluctant to change and that totally killed the direction that Microsoft was going in and it would have been so polished by now. I mean, I questioned a LOT of tech enthusiast actual technical acumen when I saw how life couldn't be lived without a start button..lol.
But all in all, you are absolutely right about the integration piece and I think about what could have been years ago. Unified code between desktop/mobile, UWP apps, & Continuum were looking promising
I do not need a start button, as in Windows for Workgroups 3.11, OS/2 Warp 3 and Amiga 2.04. To this day, I still prefer a button bar to have one click access to what I used on a daily basis, which is why I prefer Ubuntu with GNome 3.38.
