In this modern world filled with a wealth of intelligent and geeky people, Microsoft could not have genuinely expected to create something that would satisfy the needs of each and every user. Instead, they decided on building something that was something similar to the jack of all trades and master of none so that a larger proportion of users could be contended with what they have seen in the new OS. Since Windows is the most widespread OS being used all over the world, it wasn’t simply possible to leave the other proportion of people unhappy.

It provides IT professionals and techno crazy users the freedom they want to customize or tweak their Windows according to their own taste.
