What scares you most about migrating to Windows 10?
I'm concerned that the maintenance model -- four strands of updates, leading to multiple different versions in the field, is an engineers nightmare that could bring Microsoft and its users to their knees. The number of unfixed errors is already significant -- just look at the community forums -- and is likely to become much worse.
The Windows 10 distribution rhythm of 2 updates a year, as well as 1 monthly patch containing all quality updates is aiming at reducing the number of variations in the field, as compared to current state.
The change is always creates some issues with customer or user they are using good or no-complaint software like windows 7. Also they remember there a change to Vista which made them rollback to XP so the failure make the people unstable.
Yet more software that the general public uses a SMALL fraction of.
