DriverEasy is the first driver update service to announce worldwide full Windows 10 readiness of their update service and database. DriverEasy checks drivers for almost all devices and peripherals. DriverEasy has versions available for enterprises, IT-technicians (1) and a free version for “everybody” (2). Exactly 8,170, 421 Windows drivers can be found in DriverEasy’s database (April 6, 2015). Established 2009, users of the DriverEasy Windows app around the world run approximately 3,100, 000 online database scans per month now for drivers, which is more than 100,000 per day. Driver Easy provides customers with an online scan as well as an offline scan which most driver update services do not offer. Drivers and Windows updates can be downloaded at a bandwidth of approximately 2400Mbps.
After Windows Vista was launched, a class action was filed against Microsoft in 2007 because millions of computers running the new OS crashed on a regular basis. Evidence by Microsoft showed that nearly half of the crashes undisputedly happened due to hardware driver issues of only three vendors. For 28.8 percent NVIDIA driver problems were responsible, for 9.3 ATI and for 8.8 Intel drivers. Other third party drivers and applications not working properly caused 18.5 percent of the crashes.
Eight years later Microsoft is about to launch Windows 10 and releases Windows 10 SDK so developers can start building universal Windows apps for every device running Windows 10. Moreover, the Windows Driver Framework becomes Open Source at the same time to reduce barriers for vendors. (3) It seems, the driver issue will be another big challenge for everybody who installs the free OS update. One driver for all devices from a 79 Dollar Nokia phone to a full scale all-in-one PC, will this work? Sounds nearly too good to come true. Until vendors have a chance to work with the new SDK, users of Windows 10 beta builds choose drivers for their hardware at their own risk anyway. (4)(5)(6)
