Windows is a very old technology. Sure, Windows 10 is relatively new, but it’s still just the latest iteration of a decades-old operating system, designed for a bygone era (pre-internet).

Now that we have the internet, fast connection speeds, không tính tiền cloud storage, and endless web apps (lượt thích Gmail, Google Docs, Slachồng, Facebook, Dropbox and Spotify), the entire Windows way of doing things – with locally installed programs and local tệp tin storage – is totally outdated.

Why is that a problem? Because when you’re constantly installing uncontrolled third-party programs, you’re constantly opening the door khổng lồ viruses and other malware. (And Windows’ insecure permission system compounds this problem.)

Google ChromeOS.
