The solution is stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

How are customer service and technical support?

We have support but do not have experience with them. 

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

It was never a question of us using Windows, as we have always done so. We do not wish to use Linux and do not use Citrix for our users, but only for disaster recovery. 

What about the implementation team?

Installation does not pose an issue for us, as we employ a CCM and make use of the master. 

We can do this on our own with the assistance of a consultant. 

We need fewer than 10 people for the deployment and maintenance, consisting of several engineers. 

What other advice do I have?

The solution is good for me. 

There are around 600 or 650 people making use of the solution in my organization. 

I would recommend the solution to others. 

I rate Windows 10 as an eight out of ten. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

A scalable and stable solution that's been around for a long time

Pros and Cons

  • "Windows 10 has a convenient user interface."
  • "The overall performance could be improved — it loads slowly at times."

What is our primary use case?

As a manager, I use Windows 10 daily. We also use Windows Excel and PowerPoint. We mainly use Windows 10 for email-related needs. We also use Microsoft Windows code to do some technical programming.

Within our organization, there are roughly six to seven thousand employees using Windows 10. 

We will definitely continue to use Windows 10.

What is most valuable?

Windows 10 has a convenient user interface. Windows has been around for a long time so we're well aware of the features it offers and how to use them properly. From this perspective, it's convenient for me.

What needs improvement?

The overall performance could be improved — it loads slowly at times. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Windows 10 for seven to eight years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It didn't use to be stable, but nowadays, it is. Still, it could always be more stable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never had to contact support relating to Windows 10.

How was the initial setup?

The installation process is straightforward. It pretty much installs automatically. 

What about the implementation team?

We installed it ourselves. 

What other advice do I have?

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give Windows 10 a rating of eight. 

I would recommend Windows 10 to others. We use Windows 10 because we were mandated to by our organization. Whether they are capable or not, it doesn't really matter. You'll have to use it because it has been mandated by your organization.
