Interesting fact about Windows 10: it’s not going to work as well with a device that’s not Microsoft-created. So for all of us who have a fondness for products outside of the Microsoft realm, this is something to consider. On a broader scale—for business and enterprise—it may be a big deal.

Most of us are used to having the freedom to utilize our own devices—BYOD is virtually standard in many companies today, and employees may well expect it to be the norm.

End of support means open season for hackers and malware writers, safe in the knowledge that there are no more patches coming to repair new security holes.
