Windows 10 Review

An up-to-date operating system with a great firewall

What is most valuable?

Windows 10 is very up-to-date. It's a big upgrade from Windows 7. Cortana is a very important feature.

The firewall is also really powerful. It's been working really well for us. I don't use any other virus systems other than Windows. 

What needs improvement?

It may be due to the features and apps that I use, but sometimes, I find my laptop slows down. Still, it's not a big problem with the OS. Other than that, I can't think of anything else that needs to be improved. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Windows 10 for five years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Windows 10 provides us with very continuous stability. It's stable, that's why we use it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability-wise, I am happy. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I rarely have to contact support — that's a good thing. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used to use Windows 7. Windows 7 is quite simple and traditional. Windows 10 is easier for us to navigate. It's more customizable. I like to customize my settings but Windows 7 didn't really allow me to do that. Windows 10 really considers the needs of its users. 

How was the initial setup?

I didn't set it up myself so I can't really comment on the initial setup. No maintenance is required, it updates automatically. 

How long it takes to update really depends on your internet speed. 

What other advice do I have?

I have been relying on the Windows firewall for eight years now — the security is good. I'd definitely recommend Windows just because of that.

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give Windows 10 a rating of nine. There is always room for improvement, that's why I am giving it a nine.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
