The solution is scalable. If an organization needs to expand it out, they shouldn't run into issues doing so.

Windows 10 is unique in that it comes with its own antivirus firewall, which obviates the need to purchase one separately.

My impression is that the security via windows defender is good enough that I no longer feel a need for another third-party security solution.

The latest versions of the solution have increased their level of stability. It's quite good now.

It works. It is stable, unlike other versions of Windows. It is easy to use and intuitive for the most part.

Windows 10 Cons

The operating system could be more configurable and compatible in integrating with other operating systems.
The core of the operating system needs work to become more stable and less complex. The need to occasionally re-install should not be necessary.

The only thing which concerns me is updates. It gets updated often. Sometimes, however, it automatically gets updated. That is an issue. It can happen when you do not want it to be done. It's possible it can start and your files are not saved. They may be open while your laptop enters sleep mode. Then, when you re-open the computer to continue work, it all of a sudden decides to update, destroying your work.

I would prefer to see an OS that is lighter.

Everything's tied-in via Bluetooth; it's kind of a pain in the ass because it hijacks your calls.

The solution should offer a bit of an easier integration with authentication methods, like FIDO or FIDO2 authentication with the USB-C. They should try to simplify the process of authenticating the user. Nobody wants to remember thousands of passwords.

After some time it becomes slower. The performance seems to be affected after a while.

They could really improve or clarify user account types and stuff. I help people with their Microsoft Windows 10 installations and setups. A lot of times, I pre-configure devices for them, and it is a pain to switch the user so that it shows them as the owner when I've done the initial setup. I have found some workarounds for that, but user management on it outside of a domain is somewhat cumbersome. They probably expected that one person is going to be the management and owner of it, and they seem to have built it that way, but third parties like us, who help friends and family with their setups, can sometimes run into some headaches while trying to help people without having our data loaded over to the machine with the synchronization. Microsoft has a tendency to try and put too much into what is supposed to be just an operating system. I would rather have choices and pick what I want to include. They sometimes cram too much in there.

It would be great if they could make the systems boot faster but I think it is more of a function of the PC than the solutions.

The updates could be improved. Sometimes when we update, there are instances where it fails or crashes.
