Windows This hit the news yesterday.

Microsoft released Windows 10 four weeks ago today, and now the company is providing a fresh update on its upgrade figures. 14 million machines had been upgraded to Windows 10 within 24 hours of the operating system release last month, and that figure has now risen to more than 75 million in just four weeks.

As somebody who uses Windows every day, and who upgraded to Windows 10 a few weeks before it was released, let me make a statement about all the positive Windows 10 reviews that not everyone is going to like. There are only two reasons Windows 10 is getting positive reviews. First, because it's free. This one's a given. Second, and more importantly: Windows 10 is getting positive reviews because none of the reviewers have forced themselves to use nothing but Metro applications.

Here's the cold and harsh truth as I see it: despite all the promises, Metro applications are still complete and utter garbage. Let me explain why.

I hope you enjoy life out there in the Wilderness ;) ;)

As I see it most places are holding off on deploying this and preferring to wait and see how things pan out.
I too use Windows and develop software for it (Server side). If I have to replace my W7 desktop (that runs Server VM's) then I'll go to Server 2012 on the desktop.

A good few individuals here (me included) won't be treading the W10 path this side of hell freezing over.

So, I really hope that you have a 'Plan B' in case its adoption stalls.
