Default HELP!! What are the advantages of Running Windows?

Hi All,

I'm writing a paper and a sub section is on the Advantages of Windows the operating system. I have covered: -

- consistency between the versions/updates/editions
-market share, hence more investment
-Interface drivers, if not windows update.
-roll back drivers if there is a problem
- possible to boot several OS's at boot loader

Any help?

Compatibilty. Almost everything works on Windows, almost every webpage is geared to work with windows, same with games.

Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Think of what came before windows. DOS. Windows is much easier for the average user than DOS was.
