    upon searching, it looks like they will stop with windows 10, and just keep pushing updates to improve it, but no new actual operating system.. :/

    Eeeek, i think your about 10 years to late... lol


    Haha, i knew somebody would say something like that, obviously i use linux, but on home computers/laptops we use windows, because the children understand it...

    In the office, linux is used! (currently ubuntu because its user friendly mostly)

    Only just found it, so i thought i would post and see what people thought?.

    im not sure, maybe they see it has worked for apple, and figured it could help them? the only thing that concerns me, no matter how big microsoft will be, surely there profit comes from people going out and physically buying the new operating system, so now what they will charge us for windows updates?

    Really old news BTW. Does not matter what the name will be, however, a new microsoft OS will have to be written again in 2 years to match the new hardware architecture that is developed.

    So whether they call is windows 10.a or whatever for older pc systems or 10.b for newer makes zero difference.

    What, we're moving into 128-bits? :eek: Nah, there isn't going to be much change on the hardware any time soon, barring some amazing discovery that matures very fast into a commercial product.

    You should try windows 10 darko. I loved windows 7, hated windows 8 with a passion but 10 is really good

    which is fine, but when they drop support for windows 7, and windows 8, people wont really have a choice, look what they did with windows xp... any new up to date software is ony being developed for the latest version.

    (which is a shame, because xp was amazing)

    i agree, windows 10 is nice, you should try it, im sure you will like it, why they didnt do this with windows 8.1 i dont know...

    people liked the apps, but liked the start menu, windows 10 just makes sense.

    Does anyone know when IBM will release their new O/S that is suppose to be like Mac and way better than Windows. It's about time they brought in some competition for Windows and Mac who dominates the world today.

    Anything that you have to use either Start 8 or Classic Shell to have a usable menu structure is not what I would call 'Good,' let alone "Really Good."

    Bill gates gave up i guess ,

    he retired ans married made his billions gave the whole company away with only sheres
    so he instructed updates only but features will be added.

    ss how in business you get to rich you just give up...

    so on the plus side mcse 10 will only be upgrades to learn only
    where there out, sobin theory that better solution
    keep doing yearly exams or when new op comes out?
