Windows

Windows 10 is coming this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages. Today, we are excited to share more details on the Windows 10 Editions.

We designed Windows 10 to deliver a more personal computing experience across a range of devices. An experience optimized for each device type, but familiar to all. Windows 10 will power an incredibly broad range of devices - everything from PCs, tablets, phones, Xbox One, Microsoft HoloLens and Surface Hub. It will also power the world around us, core to devices making up the Internet of Things, everything from elevators to ATMs to heart rate monitors to wearables. No matter which Windows 10 device our customers use, the experience will feel comfortable, and there will be a single, universal Windows Store where they can find, try and buy Universal Windows apps.

The supposed appeal of Windows 10 is that's universal, no matter the device, so to still have different versions for consumer devices (i.e., I can understand separate server and IoT stuff) seems counter-intuitive.

That being said - Windows Mobile is back. Makes it all worthwhile.

It appears that your problems are not technical in nature.

Yes, and no. Security that interacts with humans, is more than encryption algorithms and firewalls. UX design has to take that into account. An interface has to do more that be technically secure, it has to make the user feel secure. By not even bothering to change the default sounds from an operating system that was known to be a security failure, ATM designers really screwed that up. If you really want windows as your ATM OS, fine. Just don't make it apparent to the end user.
