Windows 10 Review

User-friendly and supports many applications, but needs more monitoring tools for administrators and better pricing

What is most valuable?

It is user-friendly, and it supports many applications. I am working as an enterprise lead, so I have different client applications, and they are mostly compatible with Windows. The graphical interface of Windows 10 is better than Windows 8.

What needs improvement?

They should introduce some special tools for system administrators. I am currently looking at how to calculate the storage. It should have additional tools for monitoring for system administrators. A lot of such monitoring and security tools are available for free in other open-source operating systems, such as CentOS. 

It should have the backup-and-restore functionality, which is integrated with any external device, such as a USB device. Windows 10 should also be free. They should only charge for Professional Windows 10, but the basic OS should be free.

Microsoft should support the Red Hat operating system. When I install Red Hat, it doesn't support NTFS. It needs some additional plug-ins.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with this solution for two to three years. I am using it in the office as well as at home.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. In our organization, we have a lot of security stacks. Windows 10 is more stable and better than Windows 8.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not contacted them.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward and simple.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The basic operating system of any hardware should be free. Therefore, it should be free. They should charge only for the enterprise level or enabling the hypervisor. They should charge for Professional Windows 10, but the basic OS should be free.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution for non-IT people. It is an operating system for a novice end-user. As an administrator, there are many tools that I don't find in it.

I would rate Windows 10 a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
