As Windows 10’s userbase increases so are the complaints about privacy and mandatory automatic updates. On hearing the accusations, Microsoft took a few steps in the right direction. Microsoft vice president Jim Alkove declared that the company will make the contents of Windows 10 updates public and notify their clients about how every new change will affect their experience. The vice president admitted that the changes came as an aftermath of the userbase’s complaints.
Alkove declared that they’ve taken notice of the criticism coming from customers and decided to actively work on providing them with information regarding new functions from now on.
Windows 10 was recently offered to Windows 7 and Windows 8 clients as a free upgrade.
What does Windows 10 offer compared to its previous versions? a reinforced Start menu, that frees itself from the convoluted full-screen desktop-like makeover of its predecessor. The new menu ensures that the frequently used applications get front-seats in the main section. It’s an indication that Windows is planning to get back to basics, this time with a cutting-edge modern design.
Rather evidently, the Start menu redesign is not the only new feature, as Windows will debut their first virtual assistant Cortana into its desktop.
One of the most significant transformations of the operating system will be its flawless ability to be handled across different devices, be it laptops, tablets or phones. The phone version of the operating system is set to be launched later this week at IFA 2015 in Berlin.
Hardcore gamers will not be disappointed by the new operating system, as it comes with DirectX 12 accessibility, which promises to bring even more realism in gaming than its already impressive predecessor. This compability is not scheduled anytime soon for Windows 8.
So far, web-browsing is only one common issue with Windows 10 that is worth taking into consideration if you are planning to update from a previous version. Some users claimed that browsers bring down the system device speed significantly.
