Why can't you install Windows 10 Creators Update on your old Atom netbook? Because Intel stopped loving you

Re: Microsoft murdered netbooks

Tablets and lower priced laptops murdered netbooks, and Intel murdered Atom.

People bought netbooks because they couldn't afford a real computer but wanted something that sort of filled that space. Most of those people found a tablet met their needs, a few others chose chromebooks and for the rest they worked out that paying an extra couple hundred bucks for something that wasn't a steaming pile was worth it.

No one wants a piece of junk low powered laptop whatever OS it's running.
