Microsoft windows 10 and FHC
We have just received our first full version of Microsoft Windows 10 which unlike some other Microsoft upgrades went seamlessly although you do have to allow over an hour for the full install. We are pleased to say that our FHC (hydraulic calculation software) and Hcalc (hydraulic calculator) performs seamlessly on this new operating system. We had previously tested our software on the Windows 10 technical preview before the launch date so we were confident that this would be the case but it's reassuring to have it successfully working on the production release.
Our first impressions is that Windows 10 is a great improvement on Windows 8 and 8.1 and looks to have resolved many of the issues but still retaining the stability and usability of Windows 7. However we would recommend our customers to wait a month or two before deploying Windows 10 to allow others to iron out any niggles which there may be. I recently attended a seminar hosted by Microsoft regarding Windows 10 and was surprised to hear that a number of the new features have not been included in this release but will be rolled out over the coming months. We got the impression that 'consumer' customers are being used to test drive the operating system before it is rolled out to the enterprise users.
