    Hum...two statements from one of my machine suppliers:

    • Win10 is much more difficult to write drivers for than Win7 (for data-capture cards, machine drivers and whathaveyou)
    • MS is working on an "Industrial" OS, they're waiting for that instead of coding for Win10

    Anybody care to comment? I can't assess either :confused:
