Windows 10

There is some controversy about this new version of Windows some users are concerned over privacy issues, I have been using the Windows OS since the early days of Windows 95 it was a great OS for its time, then they released Windows 98 which had some improvements over its predecessor, Windows 2000 (NT5) was one of my favourite Operating Systems back in the day.

Windows XP aimed at the home user market followed by Windows 7 which was a great improvement over any of the previous versions, Windows 10 is an accumulation of all its predecessors and I have to be honest I am very impressed with the slick interface.


Microsoft has focused on security – these snippets are taken from the MS website

Windows 10 brings you built-in protection. That means more security features, safer authentication and ongoing updates delivered for the supported lifetime of your device.

Windows Defender is your antivirus security solution that delivers comprehensive and real-time protection against software threats across email, cloud, and web.

Windows Firewall is network protection designed to keep hackers and malicious software from gaining access to your PC.

SmartScreen Filter1 is online protection built into Windows, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer browsers to help keep you protected from malicious websites and downloads.
