Windows 8, with its split desktop/mobile personality, has been far from a universal success. Windows 10 is scheduled for release later in the year and it may even be a free upgrade for Windows 8 users, and a small upgrade fee for Windows 7 users.
Microsoft found plenty of takers when it offered a technical preview edition of the next version of its best known software. More than 1.5 million people signed up and the company says at least half a million people are using the preview every day. Microsoft says it is especially happy about this because the feedback will help them fix bugs and glitches before Windows 10 hits the consumer market.
