Windows 10 is coming on July 29, surprisingly, and with it comes a few quirks, many might not enjoy. You see, the new operating system does not support some aspects of the old, a move that is very brave.
Already, we’re seen many Internet users going crazy over the announcement that Windows 10 will launch for consumers on July 29. It’s what many have been waiting for, since quite a few did not opt to upgrade to Windows 8.
What are the problems:
OK, so Windows 10 does not support Desktop Gadgets, Hearts (game), and Windows Media Center. We’ve long known that Windows Media Center would be killed off, and although many fans of the platform wanted it to return, Microsoft did not see why it needed to.
Let’s face it, Windows Media Center was ahead of its time, but its purpose no longer serves Microsoft any good. Xbox Music and Xbox Video are both good enough for whatever entertainment content users need to consume; the only downside is that these platforms do not support live TV playback.
As for Desktop Gadgets on Windows 7, well, fans should have seen this one coming from a million miles away.
We’re not sure why, but if folks are still using Floppy disks, they will require new drivers, according to Microsoft. Furthermore, playing DVDs out of the box is a no go with Xbox Video. However, by just downloading a third-party video player such as VLC Media Player, this problem should be rectified immediately.
For now, we can only hope all the bugs facing the Technical Preview are fixed, and that Edge launches with some form of plug-in support because, without it, this promising browser might not get the response which is being expected.
We recommend that users read the FAQs first, before deciding to go in for the Windows 10 upgrade, when it is made available.
