While Windows 8 and 8.1 was an interesting direction that Microsoft was headed towards, it seems that its users weren’t that ready for such a radical shift, especially when you consider that they have been used to a particular UI layout and features for decades now. This is why it doesn’t come as a surprise to learn that unlike Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10 is well-received.
This is according to a recent study conducted by Brandwatch in which they found that of all the people that they observed, a whopping 92% of them claim to love Windows 10, while only 8% said that they hated it. That’s actually a pretty impressive set of numbers which might also explain why the adoption rate of Windows 10 is rising so rapidly.
However while many do claim to love Windows 10, there are some features that not everyone is particularly enamored with. For example with Office Suite, a whopping 60% claimed that they did not like it. Many also didn’t seem to appreciate the taskbar or the new action center. However many were pleased with Cortana with more than 80% saying they loved it.
Microsoft’s attempts at removing the Internet Explorer stigma by creating the Edge browser also seems to have worked. The new browser on Windows 10 has an approval rating of 75% with the remaining quarter claiming that they did not like it. It also seems that many were pleased with the return of the Start menu and integration with the Xbox.
