Ever since Microsoft announced Windows 10, the operating system has become the buzz of the town. Love it or hate it, you just can’t ignore it. According to Microsoft’s reports, Windows 10 has been installed on 75 million-plus PCs. If you haven’t upgraded your system yet, here is a Windows 10 review for you.


The best part about Windows 10 is that you can turn your Windows 10 phone into a computer, and a computer with this OS already gives you a feel of a cellphone. With best of the apps and TV programs available on the Store, there is no need to switch on your television for your favorite shows. Windows 10 is also offering select Xbox games for free. Here are some of them:

Windows 10 brings more for gamers. As the official Xbox website says, you can now “Stream your Xbox One games to any Windows 10 PC in your home” or “Play great games optimized specifically for Windows 10, including Minecraft, Gigantic, Killer Instinct, and Gears of War.”

Apart from bringing joy for gamers, Microsoft Windows 10 is full of fresh, new features. Cortana is one of those. Heard of Siri? Cortana is Microsoft’s Siri, but it can do a few things Apple’s digital assistant cannot, like set reminders based on contacts and look for flight information. Universal apps is another great feature of Windows 10. Ed Spencer, a Windows developer, in a statement given to Forbes about the new app store, said, “The new app store means I can write an app once and put 4 different ‘skins’ on it, which makes the app compatible for Xbox, desktop, Windows Phone and tablet. A lot of this skinning is also automatic, which should reduce the overall development time.”

Also, Windows 10 devices are increasing in numbers. Microsoft is also pushing Windows 7 and 8.1 out of the market. So now all are going to have are Windows 10 machines. And with an operating system so cool, who would not like to have it on their laptop/desktop and enjoy gaming, television, advanced search and internet surfing on the same platform? But yes, there are a few flaws here and there. Cortana, for instance, is better with smartphones, as you need a mic to use it on desktops.

If you are still using Windows 7 or 8.1, I hope this “Windows 10 Review” will help you make up your mind. By the way, IT’S FREE!
