User friendly, very easy, and very stable
Pros and Cons
  • "It is user friendly and very easy."
  • "They have a lot of updates, and most of these updates don't have a major feature. We do an update, and we usually don't see any new features from the end-user perspective, which is quite unlike phone updates, where after the update, we usually see something really new. We should be required to update Windows 10 only for major changes. The updates also take a lot of time. When the updates are going on, the PC becomes a bit slow."
