The drop date for Windows 10 has come and gone. Yes, I loaded it up on both of my computers in the first hour it was available. I then loaded it on both of my work computers once I found the installer. With exception of a few driver hiccups that weren’t resolved between RTM and GA, this is an awesome release.
Overall, the critics that said Microsoft took their inspiration from Ubuntu are correct. Old school windows meets new school Ubuntu. This makes for a very slick working system.
However, this is not a review of Windows 10. This is addressing a very serious blunder by the Microsoft marketing morons.
So many people loathe Internet Explorer. Personally, I think they got it right at v10. However, they screwed it up in v11. I’ve actually been voluntarily using Firefox for the first time in my life as my main browser! Microsoft Edge is a wonderful departure from Internet Explorer. The interface is uncluttered. It doesn’t even allow plugins. And for those of you who are using Windows 10 on a tablet, Edge has the option to turn off allowance of Adobe Flash so you can keep the battery power from draining too fast. The good thing is that Edge is fully compatible with HTML 5. There’s also an option to open a site in Internet Explorer if you work for a business that has software that will only work back in the stone age of computing.
But please, look at the logos. In all of its glory of being a large size graphic, you can see the difference. But what about when it is small? Can you still tell the difference? If so, good for you. When I loaded Windows 10 on my computer, I spent 5 minutes wondering where Edge was and why Internet Explorer was placed on my taskbar by default.
There should have been a drastically different logo. I’m not the only one that thinks so. The web is already filled with articles and blogs covering this exact subject!!!
