Re: Where are the facts no one likes Win 10?
"I'm seeing corporates who are happy to upgrade from 7 to 10 that refused to touch 8."
I've not seen or heard of one (1) corporate type (the kind who actually has an IT infrastructure, not a one-person corporation) move to Windows X, YMMV; but in general they're not going to, if at all, for YEARS! Why? Because the corporation depends on it working while;
1. It must not spew or attempting to harvest information for consumption by third parties
2. it must not compromise their network any more than the legacy OS has, in fact it should be capable of less functionality in this regard.
3. It must work with all Applications and peripherial devices in use across the enterprise.
"Now as for PC sales, well that has nothing to do with Windows 10."
You are standing in a river in Egypt (in denile) mate. Windows 10 is the only thing available on retail Laptops and desktops. Corporate customers are asking for laptops with Win 7 on them and are unable to get them. The only courses of action remaining are;
1. Do nothing and keep working with what they have (about 80% do this). While cost effective Microsoft is prematurely making life difficult hoping to prod them into Windows 10.
2. Buy a new laptop and wipe W 10, install Linux and then Install OEM W7 in a VM.
3. Begin throwing money at determining if Windows 10 or an alternative can be deployed without borking their business activities. This is usually a result of the "making life difficult" activity mentioned in #1, and the more aggravated they are the more amiable they are to alternatives.
Option two is only being adopted by small companies at the moment, those with 200 or fewer employees and no need for special hardware like copy-protection dongles hanging off a USB port or heaven forbid, an RS232 or worse, parallel port. These businesses, while more nimble in the decision making process, are forward looking and don't want to be held hostage by their information systems.
Because of lack of driver support for W7 on new hardware the VM is usually the only viable option for installing it on a new retail PC.
While the tablet might be replacing personal laptops, it isn't making a dent in replacing corporate (again the kinds with many shareholders) laptops and/or desktops,... unless you're Microsoft, Apple, or Google. Tablets (large format ones) as a graphics terminal (RDP || VNC session) into a VM on a corporate server and smaller form factors for retail Point Of Sale and Warehouse work are being used; they are however restricted to the corporate work place and there usually isn't a BYOD policy in effect.
