WINDOWS 10 TO BE THE LAST OPERATING SYSTEM BY MICROSOFT !..
Instead they plan to launch a series of continuous updates but leave the basic core OS intact. Although this sounds good in theory I think they won't be able to resist the urge to release new versions down the track particularly when it's been around for 10 yrs and the name is starting to sound a bit dated.
At least if nothing else, they appear to have learned from their mistakes in the past...consistently wanting people... to purchase a new OS.
It was near impossible for them to convince PPL to change from the rock solid XP...and when they did...they ended up with crappy VISTA. Most ppl waited and jumped straight from XP to WIN 7 which to this day is still the best OS Microsoft have ever produced.
Then to rub insult to injury, they wanted ppl to change from WIN 7 to 8...which was once again junk. Luckily WIN 10 is shaping up to be an excellent OS. It seems to me that Microsoft can only get it right every 2nd time..lol..
At this stage...the boffins at MS are still sprouting that WIN 10 will be a free upgrade for anyone that is running a legal version of 7 or 8. We'll wait and see if that still stands come August when WIN 10 is released. I have been using the BETA version for some time now, and I have to say it has been by and large, a pleasant experience. I'm also pleased to hear that they are working hard to make it much more user friendly across multiple platforms. It seems they are hoping to give ANDROID a real run for their money on phones and tablets.
See you next time...
