Windows 10 Is A Big Hit Among Microsoft’s Most Important Customers

Windows 10 a hit among business customers

A new study by Forrester Research suggests that business and enterprise customers are very excited about Windows 10.

Nearly half of all respondents (49%) on the enterprises side said they plan on loading Windows 10 on their business machines by 2016.

Compared to Windows 8, which Forrester says garnered a 22% positive response, this is a huge win for the tech giant.

The study also found that 38% of workers who use a computer say they want Windows 10 on their next work laptop, with 9% already using it on their main work device.

That’s good news from a workplace that largely skipped Windows 8 while holding strong to the Windows 7 OS.

Microsoft says that 14 million business users are now taking advantage of Windows 10. There’s still a long way to go before all of Microsoft’s 110 million customers are using the software.

Forrester notes that Windows 10 has been helped along by laptops which have greatly increased in quality since 2012.
