    Windows 10 Gets Thumbs Up From Security Experts


    Security experts have given a cautious welcome to enhancements in Windows 10, including improved access controls, data loss prevention, and app whitelisting for consumers and businesses.

    Microsoft’s new operating system is available free to Windows 7 and 8 customers from today, with a raft of new features including the Siri-like Cortana personal assistant and a new browser to replace the increasingly buggy Internet Explorer.

    It has also been given a major makeover when it comes to security.

    Yep that should be toggled on by default but I guess they don't want to confuse new computer users or something.
