Windows 10 Is Here! Yeah or Boo?
The highly anticipated Windows 10 was released July 29th. What does this mean for the Enterprise computing environment?
I’m going to try something different here, I will describe the articles I’ve found and listed at the top under: “Windows 10 Links”. I think the selected sites will give everyone a well-rounded view of Windows 10; the cost, the capabilities, the parts which make us cheer and boo.
So here we go:
- Windows 10 Product Review – A balanced review covering the major features, touchdowns, and fumbles.
- Is Windows really free? – Interesting thoughts on what happens after the free 1 year period, if anything.
- Which versions of Windows Qualify for the free upgrade – Who get the free version and who doesn’t, sorry Windows XP users.
- Windows 10 Bugs – We recommend waiting for the first service pack – or whatever it will be called. See below for new update details.
- Windows 10 Starts Charging For Missing Features – Uh oh!, Not so much the programs MS is charging for now, but the precedent is a little unnerving, will you ever stop paying for Windows?
- Useful Windows 10 Website – Lots of 10 stuff, I mean lots
- Windows 10’s very different way of updating – Fairly confusing, but you can be guaranteed a steady stream of updates.
- Review these Windows 10 Security settings – The trend of personal data collection troubles me greatly.
- How much of your Windows 10 usage data goes to Microsoft? – A follow-on to the previous bullet point, but I don’t mind if they have my address, just not my exact location and last 50 products I’ve looked at. When does the benevolent dictator become the malevolent dictator? I feel the same about Google.
So there you have it. Probably more than you want to know. The bottom line, hold off till the dust settles and some patches (or whatever they are called) are issued.
