WIndowsMicrosoft Corporation’s heavily anticipated free operating system update, Windows 10, is set to be released in 111 languages. That is quite a debut. It also speaks to the ambitious scope of Microsoft’s roll out plans.

My take on this is that this is definitely a step in the right direction. There is no other way to say it, but Windows 8 was a complete and unmitigated disaster. Sure, it didn’t put Microsoft under. It didn’t cost Microsoft bankruptcy. It didn’t fundamentally weaken Microsoft’s sales infrastructure. However, it was a colossal missed opportunity. Instead of fully embracing the cloud and getting up to speed with current consumer trends and consumer expectations, with Windows 8, Microsoft retreated into its shell. It simply closed its eyes and pretended it was the year 2000 all over again.

Well, it appears that with Windows 10, Microsoft is finally back on track. It’s finally producing and developing products that actually engage consumers. Microsoft really has to hit the ball out of the park with Windows 10 because a lot of consumers’ confidence in the company was shaken due to how crappy Windows 8 was. People couldn’t make heads or tails of Windows 8. It just strengthened the hand of Apple. It’s no surprise that more and more consumers are buying Apple computers.

Based simply on the very positive initial reviews of Windows 10, it appears that Windows will regain its operating system’s street credibility with this update. Let’s just hope that the company continues its free operating system roll outs as it continues to transition into a cloud-based computing giant.
