Microsoft says all governments should want to install Windows 10

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft has recently managed to convince the Chinese government to install Windows 10 on its computers, and now the company says that state authorities across the world should do the same.

In an article titled “Six Reasons Why Governments Should Upgrade to Windows 10,” Microsoft explains that its new operating system is the perfect choice for every state out there because it offers speed, efficiency, security, control, flexibility and choices not yet available on other platforms.

The company goes into detail for each of these, explaining that Windows 10 is 30 percent faster than Windows 7 on the exact same device while also offering better hardware acceleration and improved power management.

As far as efficiency is concerned, Microsoft points to Cortana and Edge as the two new tools that help employees work better. Security has been significantly improved, it says, and features such as Credential Guard, Device Guard, and Windows Hello are living proof.

Microsoft also highlights control features, as Windows 10 gives governments full control of their systems.

“For example, Mobile Device Management empowers IT administrators to manage the entire family of Windows devices, including PCs, tablets, phones, and the Internet of Things (IoT) - both safely and securely. And Azure Active Directory Join enables administrators can maintain one directory, while giving employees one login with which to securely access their Windows settings and data across of their Windows 10 devices,” Redmond says.

At the same time, Microsoft discusses flexibility and choice, explaining that governments can choose from a wide variety of devices running Windows 10, including tablets, smartphones, and PCs.

Obviously, seeing Microsoft insisting in this particular industry is not at all surprising, but as always, convincing governments to install a new operating system on their PCs is quite a challenge. And criticism claiming that Microsoft collects user information from devices running Windows 10 doesn't help at all.
