With the release of the Windows 10 technical preview, it’s received both good and bad reviews. There were mixed reviews of Windows 8, too, but it seemed to leave an overall bad taste in people’s mouths. Is the Windows 10 technical preview helping Microsoft regain public confidence?
The Windows 10 technical preview seems as if it should be a major release. It’s being changed enough that Microsoft didn’t even bother to name it Windows 9. It skipped right over it in the numeric numbering system and went straight to 10. And while it seemed to be the only game in town not too long ago, consumers have many other options now.
They can either go with an operating system such as Linux or Mac OS or they can go all mobile and stick with Android or iOS. If Microsoft wants to keep the users they have and possibly even gain new users, they need to regain the public confidence that seems to have slowly been dropping.
Is the Windows 10 Technical Preview just what you needed to trust Microsoft again with your computing needs? Or do you think they still have a way to go before they can win back your trust?
