A new report says the U.S. Marines are having problems updating their old PCs to Windows 10. The Department of Defense wants the military to upgrade to Microsoft's newest OS by the end of January 2017.
According to Federal News Radio (via WinBeta), the Marines thought they could remotely update about 60% to 70% of their PCs to Windows 10. Brig. Gen. Dennis Crall says that due to the older hardware on most of their rigs, that kind of remote updating will work on just 10% of all of their PCs:
He added that the Marines are working with Microsoft on a solution but some of their PCs might have to be replaced with new ones with Windows 10 pre-installed earlier than what they had originally anticipated. While the Department of Defense officially says they are confident that 80% of their PCs will be upgraded to Windows 10 by the deadline, the report says the remaining 20% might not get that upgrade for years, due to the fact they are being used on weapons and vehicles overseas or engaged in military operations.
