Our Verdict:

Microsoft has shown much improvement with the release of Windows 10....

Windows has been the most used Operating System (OS) globally for desktops and laptops, except the MAC. Consumers, however, may love or hate Microsoft's windows interface. Why? Microsoft's imperfections caused people to prefer Apple's constant innovation. But that is changing with freshly made Windows 10.

Windows 10 changes the game

Under the new administration, Microsoft is working hard to win back the consumers they lost and improve the experience of existing users. They might have hit the nail on the head with the release and positive reviews of Windows 10.

Windows 10 is everything that Windows 8 should have been. Many consider Windows Vista the worst of windows, but Windows 8 wasn’t really far behind. First, Windows 8.1 filled the void created by the 8 and the newly made Windows 10 took it one step further and almost perfected it.

Microsoft created Windows 10 to bring back the users disappointed with Windows 8. They combined the start menu from Windows 7 with the touch of Windows 8.1's Live Tiles and classic integrations.


The start menu is back, reminding me how good Windows 7 was and will work well if not better. Cortana, the beloved feature in the Lumia smartphones, came in Windows 10 as a new feature. The new default browser for Windows 10 is Edge, which replaced Internet Explorer (IE).

Universal App is a new feature that is still being tested to bring desktop and smartphone users closer together, but we know little about it yet. Microsoft did not include the charm bar in the new iteration. Instead, they introduced a much better-programmed notification centre with a lot of useful features.

Windows 10 versus 7 and 8

After Windows 7, the 8th iteration of windows was a tremendous step from the previous versions of windows, that it almost seemed like an all new OS in its built. People really didn’t dig the new metro style of the start screen. But there were some things that people loved about the 8. So Microsoft played it safe and included the best features in Windows 7 and 8.

The start menu in Windows 10 is like a perfect merge between the 7 and 8. The style is of windows 7, and the Live Tiles are from Windows 8, which people loved.

The most important thing missing in the 7 and 8, which are directly integrated into the new windows, are virtual desktops. Apple’s Mac has this as its key feature but is now integrated into Windows 10, and it is even better than the MAC's. Microsoft has revamped the multiple touchpad functionality in Windows 10. The previous iterations have less functionality.

Microsoft’s Universal Windows App is not fully working as it should, so we will leave for later. The default new Edge browser in Windows 10 shows positive ratings compared to the previous internet explorer in 7 and 8. 

Touch screens are becoming universal, and the Edge optimizes the touch functions of the laptops and tablets. To this day, the reviews have been positive. Besides, integrating Cortana makes it even better if you want reviews and directions to any place.


The last words and verdict for windows 10 would be that it’s the best windows Microsoft has ever made with little room for betterment. It is flexible and easy to use. It reminds us of when Microsoft was the tech company to look for, and brought that vibe back. Traditional desktop PCs are on a downward trend and Microsoft is also moving away from that direction, and Windows 10 is the epitome of that idea.
