Microsoft still needs to focus on performance issues
Windows 10 users were quick to respond to this piece of news. One Reddit user opened a discussion by creating a new post on Reddit. The OP highlighted the fact that Microsoft needs to work on its kernel.
Gonna need a major kernal rework for windows to get better. I hope they’re planning on it.
Windows 10 has a bad reputation as far as the bugs are concerned. Many users are now concerned about various performance issues affecting Windows 10.
As a matter of fact, today Microsoft is focusing more on introducing brand new features. The company only addresses major issues that exist in the operating system.
As a quick reminder, Microsoft is currently working on integrating a real Linux kernel on Windows 10 very soon. The upcoming kernel is not going to replace the existing Windows kernel. Alternatively, Windows 10 is going to use VM to run the Linux kernel.
Microsoft should not ignore the fact that the gaming community is using different versions of Windows 10. If the company doesn’t work to bring new hardware support for games, players may look for an alternative platform.
