Free Windows 10 will not stop the transition to Mac users




This week, Microsoft held a large-scale presentation dedicated to Windows 10, which reported that the new operating system will be distributed free of charge to users of Windows 7, 8 / 8.1 and Windows Phone 8 / 8.1 in the first year since the release. But this, according to sources, is unlikely to encourage users to update or notebook PC with a transition to alternative platforms.


According to business publication DigiTimes, referring to industry sources, the fact that Windows 10 will be available as a free update, is unlikely to improve the pace of modernization of laptops, especially in the corporate sector. Now the majority of users still use Windows 7, despite the availability of Windows 8 / 8.1. Moreover, Windows XP, whose support has expired back in April of last year, is set to 10% of the computers and laptops. Free upgrade stimulates some users on the move to Windows 10, but the supply of laptops because it is unlikely to grow. The reason is that now the consumer replacement laptop is not a priority and they prefer instead to buy a new smartphone or tablet.

At the time, manufacturers of computer equipment expected release of Windows 8 will revitalize the IT-sector, but the harsh realities of the market in varying degrees of disappointment. So much so, that enraged OEM-manufacturers accused Microsoft that “eight” provoked “the transition of millions of users on computers Mac». Dissatisfied with the innovations in Windows users began to pay attention to more classical solution from Apple.

At the same time due to lack of innovation Windows 10 is not able to encourage consumers to buy new PC. Not interested in it and those who plan to go on a Mac. OS X Yosemite is more innovative than the last product of Microsoft.

Sources say that this year notebook manufacturers, with the exception of Apple, will not attract consumers, despite the introduction of new solutions and unique designs. And the market will continue to lead the cheap laptop models.
