As 2014 closes out, it’s time for a look back at which posts readers of All About Microsoft clicked on most.
I wasn’t too surprised, when I received my stats from the editors at ZDNet, that Windows 10 — the operating system formerly known as Windows 9 and Threshold — was a big topic of interest. (Last year, it was almost all about “Blue,” a k a Windows 8 and its 8.1 successor.)
Microsoft’s plans for Windows 7 also were of keen interest, again, not too surprisingly, given the dominant share of that operating system.
But readers here also were quite interested in Office on iPad, which Microsoft rolled out in March. Office 365’s “Delve” application/service and the new Office Mix interactive presentation application also piqued the interest of many readers.
Here’s a list of my top 10 ZDNet posts, traffic-wise (not comment-wise) for 2014, along with one more for good measure:
With a new CEO at the helm, a new corporate mantra (productivity and platforms) and lots of organizational and strategy changes over the past year, the Microsoft of today is quite different from the old Microsoft, or even last year’s Microsoft. Some of the Microsoft changes we saw this year were predictable, but many caught even us veteran Microsoft watchers by surprise.
In 2015, I’m expecting some interesting developments from the company on the Perceptive Pixel, Bing and Windows 10 fronts. Any crazy (or not so crazy) Microsoft predictions of your own, readers?
See you in 2015 — and thanks for the comments, tweetups/meetups and tips in 2014.
