Just an “Update,” or a Whole New “Operating System”?
We are all used to software updates, whether on our mobile phones, tablets, or computers. Many of them are pretty unexciting. We often don’t even perceive what the update supposedly has made better. Even though the operating system “works ok,” we often crave something with a fresh look and new functionality. Software manufacturers know this; they have to produce something that is always engaging, attractive, useful and helpful, and ideally, fun, in order to stay competitive in a rapidly changing market.
