Wednesday, July 29, 2015 is going to be a big day for Microsoft as it formally releases its latest update to its flagship Windows operating system, Windows 10. Since Windows 7 was released nearly 7 years ago on October 22, 2009, most Enterprises have viewed Windows 8 (released October 26, 2012) or Windows 8.1 (released October 17, 2013) more like Vista 2.0 rather than a worthy successor to Windows 7.
Time will tell if Windows 10 features will prompt enterprises to give up on Windows 7 or hang on until its extended support ends on January 14, 2020. Of great interest to SAP customers will be the new Microsoft Edge browser and how it supports plug-ins like Adobe Flash and Oracle Java.
Jayne Landry, SAP General Vice President and General Manager for Business Intelligence, indicates via Twitter that Windows 10 support will be added first to SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1 SP7 then folded into BI 4.2 later.
@DallasMarks Windows 10 with IE will be first tested on SP7 and if everything is fine brought into 4.2.
