Windows 10 Upgrade Treated as Military Operation, US Army Says

Softpedia reports that “the United States Department of Defense (US DoD) announced in February this year that it was moving 4 million devices to Windows 10 as part of a plan to increase the security of its systems, including here laptops, desktops, and smartphones.”

“The US Army is one of the agencies that will migrate to Windows 10, and according to Chief Warrant Officer 5 Brian S. Wimmer, Senior Technical Adviser with NETCOM (the body in charge of the Army Cyberspace), the whole process is treated as a genuine military operation.”

“Wimmer has told ArmyTimes in a statement that the migration to Windows 10 is projected to complete as ‘rapidly as feasible,’ but a specific deadline hasn’t been offered. All systems are expected to switch to Windows 10 by the end of 2017, though.”
