Have A Look Back At Windows 10’s Early Release
There’s no doubt everyone was excited when Windows 10 launched in 2015 and every single user bought it. But it came with many bugs that piled up enormous complaints from the users and Microsoft did everything to resolve them.
Even the CEO Satya Nadella was also very much excited about the voice assistant of Windows 10 known as “Cortana” and believed that it would beat Siri of Apple.
But Cortana couldn’t pull off the strings from Siri and instead, Microsoft pulled of Cortana’s string this year in April.
Looking back in the early release here are some of the issues that every user faced.
- Microsoft didn’t support the latest webcams due to Microsoft having a bug patch encoded.
- Users complained that they have lost some of the files and emails too. Plus even the broken Wi-Fi connection and printers too.
- One of the biggest accusations Microsoft faced in the early release of the Windows 10 is that the French data authority said, “Windows 10 gathered an excessive amount of personal data on users”.
Users faced hundreds of issues in the first year of Windows 10, but the company managed to resolve them quickly and let the users enjoy the Windows 10 experience.
Regarding the new OS, Mr.Nadella and chief product officer Panos Panay will be launching the new OS at a virtual event on the 24th of June. People are more into the modern design, some amazing features, new Start Menu and hope it won’t be a failure like Windows 8 series.
