The Windows 10 march towards Release-to-Manufacturing begins with the first major update released earlier today. According to Microsoft, it includes over 7000 fixes and improvements.
I can’t wait to try it out at work.
I installed Windows 10 Technical Preview on one of our work laptops. We normally don’t get to do anything like this but under this new regime, situations like this have improved.
So far I think it resembles a refined version of Windows 8.1. I wasn’t a Windows 8 hater, so all of this is iterative to me. In fact, I prefer Windows 8.1 to Windows 7. Windows 7 (and 2008 R2) looks gaudy and functionally dated compared to Windows 8.1 and 2012 R2. It’s really tough to go back at times. That old Task Manager is such a useless P.O.S.
So I wish Microsoft all the best and hope my work laptop isn’t a smouldering husk after this latest update.
