What can Windows 10 do for me that Windows 7, or even Windows 3.1, under discussion in another thread, cannot? Probably nothing that I'd want to do even if I knew how.
Yep, many of us get stuck in time.

Oh, what are you missing - the Internet of Things.

There are some aspects of IoT that scares me, when light bulbs have security vulnerabilities.

In other ways, you also get stupid things. Who really needs an Internet connected crock pot?

But a fridge & a pantry IoT would be great. You're in a store and see a great sale, but for life of you, you don't how much of it you already have home. You whip out your personal IoT device and you'll know in a minute.

Just like changing a Nest thermostat from Away to Home on the way home, cooks could have dinner in a slow cooker and turn it up on the way home.

The Nest I get, but for some of the others, I also see them not patching them. Like the case of the light bulbs I mentioned, someone can use them to get into your wifi network without needing the wifi password. Or the Chrysler case where someone can remotely get into the car and gain control while you are on the road.

I like some of the smaller stuff, but also there's a new browser (not ready enough for me to use), Cortana etc.

There was also a pretty big update to the current version released. Updates are cumulative but this one has a lot of files recently updated, including the kernel. And Insiders look to be on the Redstone ring, awaiting the first build.

Saw that, but the file directories still do not look like Windows XP.

Again what exactly are you looking for? As much that has changed files are kept in the same format as they always have been and it really hasn't changed much at all.

Got my first Win10 upgrade after the big upgrade last night. Java & Ad-ware asked to be upgraded right after the Win 10 did it thing.

I assumed he's been talking about the change in the structure of the user profiles, libraries and such.

Tomorrow I will add in photographs of the differences.

I upgraded but quickly rolled back after the upgrade messed up almost everything: Chrome wouldn't work correctly, one of my printers wasn't recognized by my PC at all, and my primary color laser printer w/ a duplex tray would only do single-sided printing. The duplex option was grayed out with the message saying that that feature wasn't available. Too many problems with Windows 10.

If you try to upgrade again,
After you do go to Device Manager, right click on each of your items like the printer, etc. and click on Update Driver, let is search the net for each of them and update if it finds them. I had to update my printer and sound card and my wireless mouse drivers.

That is one think I never quite understood about Windows, everything I connect to the Mac it just works, of course most of the stuff attached to it has a fruit logo on it.

Therein lies the problem. My Dell printer, which has been a workhorse and a very reliable machine, has no drivers for Windows 10. Until that machine can fully work in 10, I will not upgrade.
