As I did last year around this time, I'm sharing a list of the posts on my "All About Microsoft" blog clicked on most over the past 365 days, with the stats provided to me from ZDNet.
This year, anything and everything about Windows 10 garnered a lot of interest.
Microsoft made Windows 10 generally available on July 29, 2015 and spent the second half of this year working to stabilize and finalize the operating system. Many of my most-trafficked posts are from the period right after Microsoft launched Windows 10.
Here's a list of my top 10 ZDNet posts, traffic-wise (not comment-wise) for 2015, ranked highest down -- along with one more for good measure:
My number one post of 2015 was about Windows 7, not 10, however. As it was a post meant to debunk the many wrong-headed stories claiming that Windows 7 was no longer supported after January, I guess I'm not too surprised. (The real end of support date for Windows 7 Service Pak 1 is January 2020.) There's also the fact that Windows 7 remains the most-used version of Windows at present.
My interview with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, where he clarified Microsoft's mobile strategy, also ranked high on the click list. Again, I wasn't too surprised, given Nadella was quite candid in responding to questions about the company's latest remake of its mobile roadmap, as well as a couple of other hot buttons.
In 2014, readers of this blog showed a considerable amount of interest in Office 365 and Office topics, in addition to Windows ones. But this year -- in spite of Microsoft's mobile first/cloud first mantra -- it was still Windows that most interested most of you readers of this blog.
Thanks for another fun and interesting year of Microsoft watching, and for all the tips, meet-ups and Twitter convos.
