Windows 10 installed base grows, as businesses become less cautious [zdnet.com]

Among the CIOs spoken to by ZDNet, "the operating system itself is a lower priority than efforts to move applications to the cloud [and] the details of the operating system are less important to customers as applications are increasingly expected to run across multiple platforms."

Paradoxically, that means that a Windows 10 upgrade is less risky than earlier upgrades. Where an enterprise might previously have had dozens of line-of-business apps to test before beginning the deployment process, today much of that testing isn't necessary, because the browser itself shoulders much of the compatibility load.
