Re: Windows 10 & Microsoft: For me, a lesson in caution
I work in the healthcare industry and saw many XP machines. Couldn't believe it. That will have to change with XP's sunset and any new systems these workstations will interface with.

Re: Windows 10 & Microsoft: For me, a lesson in caution
really good observation, given the cost of migrating large enterprise users, and the other costs for cash-concerned SMBs. MSFT will have to show that 10 has a real advantage over anything else. WIN 7 might be a keeper for longer. 

I would add healthcare platforms -- seen XP running in many community hospitals, still

>> Windows 7 has a chance to become the next XP lasting on corporate and military platforms until MS no longer supports it.

Re: Windows 10 & Microsoft: For me, a lesson in caution
I think MS will knock it out of the park with this version. They responded very well after the Vista fiasco. However I certainly understand where you are coming from. Because of the rubbish Win8.x releases, Windows 7 has a chance to become the next XP lasting on corporate and military platforms until MS no longer supports it.

Re: One of the big whiners!!!
Well said! But I am counting on 10 to address all the issues that have come up over the years as well as offer better performance and more features. Fingers crossed.

Re: Top 5...
@whoopty given the millions of people who have already reserved Windows 10 upgrades, Microsoft is going to roll out the OS in waves. Windows Insiders will receive it first, starting July 29. Once it looks like Windows 10 is compatible with them, MS will begin to notify people of their upgrade availability. So you might have to wait a bit to download, but it's less likely you'll run into issues when you do.

Re: incredibly stupid article
" i figured I'd waste a bit more time to say, what an amazingly stupid and worthless article."
wow, we're being a little harsh, aren't we?
Chill out man. Not all the movies have to be drama, action, documentaries and so on. Once in a while, it's nice to watch a comedy. Same with IT articles, don't you think?

Top 5...
This list feels a bit like it could have been a top five considering all the jokey parts. Still, I'm interested to see how Microsoft will handle the transition on launch day. Every major game maker in the past few years seems to have run into server issues with downloads on day one. As big as Microsoft is, can its servers stand up tot he 10s of millions who will take advantage of its free upgrade on release?

Windows 10 & Microsoft: For me, a lesson in caution
I agree Nadella is a fresh start and seems to be doing the right things.

I'm hopeful for Windows 10 but very very cautious. While top management has improved, I don't believe MS's developer community has changed much. There's probably still bugs in Win10 that will be there on release. They have to whack this out of the park (and maybe Win11 too) for me to get on board. Vista and Windows 8 are still fresh wounds for me.

Though I'm hoping for MS, I'm still cautious!


For now, I'll stick with Win7 (and Macs/OS X).  They're safe bets that work -- reliably!

Re: Cortana is No Beth or Meredith That's for Sure .......
Cortana is a character from the Halo game series.  Definitely not the "latest", but if you're not a gamer then you wouldn't be expected to know it anyway.


The author thought Halo was the best game ever?  Wow.  Someone needs to play more games.

The people who are whining about Windows 8 don't know anything about Windows 8 and most probably never tried it.  After a couple of settings changes it looks and works just like Windows 7, only with better plumbing.  But uneducated users are the norm.
