Can Windows 10 be a winner?

Microsoft looks to rebound from the horror show that was Windows 8 this week, and all indications are that Windows 10 will be a winner for the company.

Microsoft looks to rebound from the horror show that was Windows 8 this week, and all indications are that Windows 10 will be a winner for the company.

That’s the view of industry analyst firm Forrester Research, which believes Windows 10 will become the new enterprise standard, the successor to Windows 7, a status that Windows 8 was unable to attain.

“Windows 10 will enable Microsoft to retain its leading position in PC computing, especially in the enterprise, where the PC remains a critical work tool,” says Frank Gillett, analyst, Forrester Research.

Yet despite positive predictions for the eagerly anticipated OS, Gillett admits that challenges for Windows 10 will come in the mobile arena.

“While it will give developers the unprecedented ability to develop apps that work on PCs, tablets, and smartphones with a single application development effort,” he explains, “it does not show enough potential for a differentiated mobile experience that will draw developers and consumers alike away from iOS and Android."
