One of the fundamental aspects that Microsoft wanted to improve significantly in Windows was how hospitable the OS is to the users. Developers wanted to ensure that the users feel completely at ease with all features as well as the UI. Hence, Windows 10 was to be the most user friendly OS Microsoft has ever developed that would fully cater to the needs of every user from every perspective. The idea was to create something that would do everything that a user required but on the other hand be as simple as playing PAC-Man. Enter Windows 10.
