Itís not a secret anymore and no matter how hard one tries not to admit it, Windows 8 failed to meet expectations and instead of changing the way we work on our computers, it actually made things worse and caused confusion on a platform that was already familiar to pretty much everyone thanks to Bill Gatesí ambition to bring a PC on every desk across the globe.
Windows 8 was an experiment from the very beginning and many people actually compared it to with Windows Vista, which in its turn is often referred to as ďthe biggest flop in Microsoftís history.Ē
So Windows 8 quickly turned into what some analysts called ďthe new Vista,Ē thus destroying Microsoftís chances to shoot two birds with one stone in a single release: get people off Windows XP and 7 and help the recovery of the PC industry, thus boosting its own revenues as well.
Enter Windows 10. From the very beginning, Windows 10 was not designed to be the typical stand-alone operating system, but one that fixes what went wrong in Windows 8. Windows 10 is Windows 8ís antidote, so many of the features youíll find here are either missing in Windows 8 or coming with a new design, features, or settings that would make it more appropriate for all user categories.
Before jumping into details and explaining whatís new in Windows 10, thereís something that needs to be very clear; Windows 10 is still in progress, so some of the features we talk about might be tweaked until the OS comes out. More, some could be removed and others could be introduced, so the final OS could be more or less different. The version we tested and wrote about is build 9901.
