Windows 10 Pros

One feature I have found most valuable is Windows Hello. Windows Hello brings in a password-less solution, wherein users don't need to type in their password. They can do biometric logins or pin-based logins.

One of the most valuable features is the ease of multitasking. It's easy to switch over different applications and multitasking is very free and flawless. Another useful feature is the ability to recover any data from a crash. Multiple benchmarking applications are supported by Windows, which isn't the case with Linux. So in case you need an application, you can Google it, find it, and easily install it. The user experience is also good. If you have the SSD installed in the laptop or machine, it will start like a boom. Windows is always ahead.

One useful feature of Windows 10 is its connectivity with mobile devices and ability to make cableless connections with external devices.

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

It's quite simple to install. I don't think that it's a problem. It takes maybe half an hour or less to install. It depends on the specs of the PC and what you need to do in advance, like backing up your drives. At most, it takes an hour.

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 most valuable feature is that it's a good enough operating system for anyone who isn't technically proficient.

Windows 10 Cons

KC

The negative is that the OS has made the room heavier, so it requires much more hardware than before.

Windows 10 could be improved by providing a data recovery application default. This is the most critical thing I have ever figured out in my career. If you accidentally deleted the data from the machine—the local machine—there is no way to get it back unless you install a third-party application. When your machine is connected to an IP domain, sometimes you won't be able to install a third-party application because it becomes a compliance issue, so you can get in trouble. Windows 10 should provide a data recovery solution.

So it would be nice to have the option to switch between this design and the previous one. Working with Windows 7, I preferred to use commands or applications like in the old version.

The security could be improved. I have had colleagues who have gotten their files corrupted somehow.

Windows 10 isn't as stable as MacOS and requires too many patches. When the patches are installing, it slows down the PC. These changes are complex, and many processes are running simultaneously, so we experience a decrease in speed.

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

This solution is good enough, but Windows is always playing catch-up when it comes to development. An improvement I would like to see is in Windows updates. They don't seem to test the updates.

If Microsoft could find a way to better manage updates and patches, that could be more useful for end users, which would be good.

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