I am a Windows fan, always will be. But saying that it is an excellent news is wrong; or false to an extent. Although, there are many great news along with Windows 10, Cortana integration with other applications, Universal Application Platform and many more. I cannot wait to get my hands dirty for Cortana! Wink | ;) Even though, when I asked her "Cortana, would you date me", she answered, "A circle may be infinite but my answers are not". *broke my heart*.

But, I cannot say it is an excellent news for me. There are many APIs that Microsoft has been teaching for years and which are still not implemented. They're simply creating new steps on a broken staircase. Listen, a good product or framework is which is resilient and is robust from ground up, built on a solid establishment from bottom to top. Many things are missing, or at least ambiguous which provide a tough time for developers. Smile | :)

If a solution to a problem (for you) is to search on Google, look for the first article, copy/paste the source code in your own application and run it to get the results. Then, Voila! Windows 10 is an excellent news for you.
