Re: Windows 10
Compared to an android device using a windows device is more complex when it comes to using it form a touch screen device. I am sure Microsoft will not be able to make windows simple like Android.

Re: Windows 10
I think we are so used to using Windows hence we see the need of having a windows tablet. But actually windows was not initially designed with the intention of having it on mobile devices.

Re: Windows 10
@ mejiac – Not all apps support Windows 10 that's one reason why IT teams are reluctant to implement Windows 10 on their devices. Most custom made software too have an issue and needs an update to fix.

Re: Device reduction
I want this hybrid device to have more specs such as the space and the RAM because this needs to run 2 operating systems and has a high probability that it would get stuck often.

Re: Windows 10
I think Microsoft should only push necessary updates for Window 10 tablets else it will eat up the memory and processing power.

Re: Windows 10
Its indeed good news for Microsoft, we now see many users having Windows 10 their tablets. Now you could easily do your office work on the go.

Device reduction

I really like the hybrid devices I am looking forward to the day when I can reduce the number of devices I have and the upgrading that seems endless! Hopefully these new devices with reduce of technology pollution and increase our productivity, I also think the prices are attractive.

Re: Windows 10
I'll just share my experience with my Panasonic: it originally ran Windows XP. All the custom hardware drivers developed by Panasonic were loaded and were working fine. When I upgraded to Windows 7 there were a couple of missing drivers. I had to go to Panasonic to download them for Windows 7. They generally work well. I did say that my Panasonic laptop is running like a champ in my previous post, but that's only 99% true. The AMD GPU drivers, for reasons unknown (isn't that the case more than we want to acknowledge?) stops working and then restarts. It's not a big problem since I don't lose any work, but it isn't a great experience. Windows 10 is two OS generations after Windows 7, so I don't know for sure that it won't work, but it's highly likely that some driver won't work perfectly.

(What I need from an operating system right now Windows 7 fulfills it well. Windows 10 doesn't provide any benefits to me that I need, so I don't see why I would want to start on the path of searching for graphics drivers, reading forums for solutions, buying new hardware if necessary, etc. I'm guessing there are millions of others who are in the same boat as me.)

Re: Windows 10
Does Windows 10 have serious hardware compatibility issues? I'm guessing no, since it is mostly pushing stuff towards the cloud, but it's something I hadn't even considered...

Re: Windows 10
In my experience with a Lenovo desktop PC running Windows 7, it wasn't Microsoft shoving the upgrade to Windows 10 down my throat but a constant nagging. Every day, multiple times a day, Microsoft would poke at me to upgrade to Windows 10. Again and again. Non-stop nagging. So I finally gave in. It wasn't too bad since I don't have a lot of legacy apps. I've moved a lot of my workflow to web-based apps/services so upgrading the operating system doesn't affect much of what I do.

Now my Panasonic laptop still runs Windows 7 like a champ and I'll continue using Windows 7 until Microsoft stops providing security patches for it (has Microsoft stopped already?). The reason is because most operating systems get bigger, more bloated, does more things (most of which we don't need/want), and requires faster hardware. My Panasonic's hardware is perfectly matched up with Windows 7 as of now. And if I upgrade to Windows 10 and there are some incompatibilities that force me to upgrade to new hardware... I wouldn't like that. I don't like rough waters; I like smooth sailing.
