Microsoft Makes the Move to Windows 10

Virtual Assistant Cortana Is the Killer Feature

by Courtney Taylor | 06.11.15

Microsoft is slotted to release Windows 10 this summer— July 29th. Many people are skeptical of their ambition to create an OS that will function seamlessly across all platforms and devices, especially due to the criticism they received over Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

If you look at the common talk track of a sales cycle, it is certainly understandable they be skeptical. After all, IT pros are told nearly every day that disaster awaits if they don’t buy this product or that service.
