Microsoft's rollout of Windows 10 gets B+ grade

From Computerworld UK

"Microsoft has done a good job rolling out Windows 10 in the first two weeks, analysts have said, and the general vibe for Windows 8's replacement has been positive, even though glitches have dampened some enthusiasm.

‘If I had to give Microsoft a letter grade, it would be a B or a B+,’ said Steve Kleynhans of Gartner. ‘It's not an A because it hasn't gone perfectly. They've stubbed their toe over privacy issues, for example.’

Microsoft began serving up the free Windows 10 upgrade late on July 28, giving participants in the firm's Insider preview programme first shot at the production code. It then slowly began triggering upgrade notices on Windows 7 and 8.1 machines whose owners had earlier ‘reserved’ copies through an on-device app planted on their devices this spring.

The Redmond company has said little of the rollout's performance other than to tout that 14 million systems were running Windows 10 within 24 hours of its debut.”
