Cortana now provides translation services

Indeed, some users have been so concerned about privacy on Windows 10 that they have deliberately held off upgrading.


And that’s the real key to Windows 10’s success: new applications.

The new Microsoft operating system has also been criticised for its extensive background data collection on users.

That’s not only upset some consumers who have experienced glitches and even problems starting Windows following an update, but has gone down very badly amongst corporate system administrators.
