From the looks of things with the Windows 10 Technical Preview that if this is what Windows 10 is going to look like, they are going to be in for a lot of trouble. If the release date is really going to be August 31st, 2015 like what Newegg has said it’s going to be, it’s going to be a mess. That’s three months away and there’s still serious issues with Windows 10 code. Correction, two months away.
Why two months? You may ask. Well, you have to remember the release cycle for Windows. In two months Microsoft will release the “gold code” to the OEMs and their distribution partners. That means the OEMs and their partners and other various distribution chain partners will have a month of time to get their products ready before the “official” launch date of August 31st, 2015.
With that being said, Microsoft has exactly two months to get things ready for the “gold code” release and sadly, it doesn’t look at all like Windows 10 is going to be ready for that. There’s still a massive load of bugs that plague Windows 10 and it seems that for every bug they fix they seem to add ten more.
It’s going to take a Hail Mary of a miracle for Microsoft to get things shaped up for the release of Windows 10 based upon what I’ve seen with Build 10130. For being this late into the development process, Microsoft should be simply polishing things up and fixing minor bugs, not the kinds of showstopping bugs that I’ve seen in Build 10130.
If Windows 10 is released the day that Newegg supposedly says that it’s going to be released on, good God almighty, we’re going to be in for a real rough ride. I don’t at all have any kind of faith in Microsoft to pull this thing together. I figure that the first few months after Windows 10’s release it’s going to be hell for their users.
Maybe the Microsoft of yesteryear could pull off a Hail Mary of this importance but not this Microsoft. This is the same Microsoft that has released not one, not two, but several Windows Updates that have broken thousands of computers across the globe.
Their overall code quality, hell, the entire computing industry’s code quality has really gone down the toilet as of late. Microsoft, Google, Adobe, Mozilla, hell, even Apple are all guilty of the same issues with overall code quality as of late. They have all sucked in this quite vital department.
