Microsoft’s Windows platform had a good run, but at this point it may very well have overstayed its welcome. The company did a great job of recovering from the Windows 8 travesty, but as much as Windows 10 is an improvement, it just doesn’t feel like the future of computing. Especially not when you consider how insanely affordable Chrome-powered computers have become.
Here’s a great example: the LG ChromeBase 22CV241-W 22-Inch All-in-One Cloud Desktop can be had for just $299 shipped right to your door. Google luck finding a Windows All-in-One that can touch it for anywhere near that price.
