Pros and Cons
  • "The solution is easy to use."
  • "I am not so happy with the performance"

What is our primary use case?

The solution is useful for running one's personal applications.

What is most valuable?

The solution is easy to use. We are very used to using Windows, starting from their 3.1 version. This is the only reason we stick with it. 

What needs improvement?

I am not so happy with the performance. All else is good, but the performance could be better. 

The user interface could be more interesting, more user-friendly. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable. 

How are customer service and support?

I have not contacted tech support. 

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

We only did upgrading. We used Windows 10 prior to Windows 7. 

How was the initial setup?

The solution came pre-installed. I have done installations of the earlier versions of Windows. This is easy.

The installation process lasted roughly an hour. 

What about the implementation team?

One can do the installation on one's own. My IT background allows me to handle it independently, but I believe this can be done by oneself even without such a background. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution came pre-installed on my computer, so I did not incur a licensing fee. 

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the solution to others. 

I rate Windows 10 as an eight out of ten.
