The most important ingredient in Windows 10’s success during its first 12 months wasn’t even a product feature, analysts said today as the operating system completed its freshman year.
“It was the fact that Microsoft was willing to learn from its mistakes, then make course corrections,” Steve Kleynhans of Gartner said when asked to pinpoint Windows 10’s most significant accomplishment. “There was a lot more of that with Windows 10. Microsoft made subtle adjustments, like the pace of updating the OS for enterprises, and they eventually softened on some of the more aggressive techniques for [the] Get Windows 10 [upgrade campaign].”
