Here are some notes about her recent blog re Windows 10:
But, frankly, Windows 10 isn’t a good OS for everyone. Here are 10 reasons you may want to wait to get Windows 10:
10. Drivers don’t always work well for video, printers, and more, especially if they’re not Microsoft products
9. Software compatibility issues for many non-Microsoft programs
8. Microsoft may remotely delete pirated software
7. Lockscreen ads
6. Microsoft doesn’t sell competing brands in its online stores
5. Blue Screen of Death and other hard-to-understand error messages
4. Big catch – option to rollback to older Windows requires your computer to have 25 percent of unused capacity
3. A downside to automatic updates – could make system restore difficult
2. Murky pricing – Microsoft hasn’t said how much it’ll charge for Windows 10 in the future or for upgrades
1. Privacy hog – Windows 10 collects more data about you than any other OS in history
