All of this simply proves is that Government has no business running a business. :)
It seems not to matter which country we are talking about. :)

The problem is they never damn learn.

The author of that article is wrong on one big point. Windows 10 is inherently more secure than 7 and there just is no doubt of that. Even 8.1 is more secure than 7.

Its a good idea from Microsoft and a bit like what Apple is planning on.

That way you may be able to travel around the world without the issues of pricey Roaming or multiple carriers as well.

It sounds interesting if it works out cheaper than a carrier contract. I'm sure it would work with my Lumia 640.

This will just cause firms issues and will get more people mad.

Microsoft warns enterprises to upgrade to Windows 10 or be left behind

http://www.winbeta.org/news/microsoft-clarifies-support-for-silicon-innovations-enterprises-and-the-best-windows-10-experience

What amazes me is the arrogance of MS (nothing new here) when trying to push their products - fortunately Enterprise users aren't overly concerned by the hype or being left behind.

Big companies frequently hold back for some considerable time before switching OS and it has nothing to do with being left behind but retraining a workforce and or updating their proprietary software or some hardware (drivers not supported or provided) and retraining staff. Not something that is going to happen overnight much to Microsoft's displeasure.
