Summary
With Windows 10 arriving later in 2015, many questions remain to be answered, both for businesses and home users. Will it provide the compatibility of Windows XP, and the usability of Windows 7? Will it banish the problems associated with Windows 8? Every change and improvement is explained, feature by feature. Topics include: reasons to upgrade from Windows XP or Windows 7 and key things to look out for; how the new interface will be familiar to Windows 7 users while empowering people to be more productive; security features that will make life safer for users, and simpler for IT pros; how BYOD (bring your own device) can be handled in the workplace, different device types, and how manageability is at the core of Windows 10; unified app platform and how it can simplify business software development while opening new opportunities for productivity and usability; how the new unified OS model and more flexible update options can benefit your business. --
