Umm, you mean that's the highest praise you're willing to acknowledge, right? Because Windows 10 has a multitude of advantages over Windows 7. Major improvements were made to Explorer, proper multi-monitor support was added, first-party virtual desktops were included, and the notification centre is a much welcomed addition. And those are just the simple, off-the-top-of-my-head things that have really helped my work flow, and which I deeply miss while at the office and forced to use Windows 7.
And that's without looking under the hood.
Maybe those are features that you don't care about, but going around pretending there are no legitimate reasons for anyone to prefer W10 to anything else is disingenuous at best.
Face it: From a gaming perspective, D3D12 vs Vulkan is going to end up being a significant debate. It's not a clear cut issue, and there's no obvious winner at this point. If D3D12 is easier to use, or if it wins out on performance in the long run, developers will chose it. Especially if the linux market continues to be fringe, at best.
And the linux market does continue to be fringe, at best.
Most people haven't rejected Windows 10 for Windows 7, or linux. They've rejected Windows 10 for their iPhones and their PS4s. So if there's a serious business discussion to be had about which platforms to support, it's not going to be over focused on the desktop.
Is this tidbit coming to us via the same people that suspected it will use Android?
