Installed on Virtualbox to test
The Start / Main screen

 The main start screen with apps , explorer and settings on left side
with the tile buttons like Windows 8 style

 File Explorer screen

So far No forced store to load and install apps.
Firefox loaded and runs good.
Also easy pin menu to start/taskbar and desktop

Over all just getting started I would have to say a good improvement over Windows 8 so far.
Further updates as we go along.

Once you enter the above text, your command prompt should look like:

Now reboot for the change to take effect.
Now when needed you can press F8 to enter safe mode.
