Title: Microsoft Windows 10 .. Will it be a success like it's predecessor Windows 7?
Post by: helper on August 02, 2015, 06:35:36 AM
MS has released Windows 10 OS with much fanfare. Will it be a success in the market? What are the big differences between Windows 7/8 and Windows 10? Will it support things like LTE, etc.? Is it worth to upgrade the existing Windows 7 OS to Windows 10?

However, one thing is clear. The hardware requirements are going up, and the existing hardware is getting obsolete with every release of Microsoft OS. One wonders whether it is necessary to have OS upgrades so soon and so fast? In turn, it is increasing the cost of ownership.

Checkout this article on new features with Windows 10 (not very innovative, though):

Going by the indications, it may not be very different, and an average user will continue to used Windows7/8.1 and probably will not upgrade any sooner!

I'm a fan except for the forced updates.  I don't trust Microsoft to not break things.

One way you are correct. Windows 10 looks more like sales platform for Microsoft with its tracking of user (like Google, which is already doing it for serving appropriate ads, in other words, to monetize).

There is also Cartana or something which i usually disable, that tracks your usage so that it could help you with things (thats what MS says) Check this out: http://certforumz.com/index.php/topic,1295.0.html
