Firstly, for all those who are contemplating on upgrading to Windows 10, this article shares with you some important features of this new Operating system. All those who have used Windows 7 will definitely be interested to upgrade to Windows 10, whereas those affected with the Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 upgrade would prefer a thorough analysis before upgrading.
The last chance to Upgrade:
Microsoft had guaranteed a free update within a year’s time after the release of Windows 10 to existing genuine windows licensed users. This would be your last opportunity to opt for your free upgrade, in case you have decided to opt for it, but wait before you do so.
Microsoft has been rolling out frequent updates and in case you were as curious as a cat to click on the upgrade, don’t worry; rolling back to your previous version is accomplished with just a few clicks, if you are thinking a lot about that.
Microsoft has listed the free and paid upgrades for its genuine users and the details are listed below:
Windows 7 (SP1) – Free
Windows 8.1 – Free
Windows XP – Paid
Windows Vista – Paid
Windows RT – Surface tablets cannot upgrade to Win 10. However, future inclusion is assured as of now
Smaller tablets support win 10 upgrade. However, waiting for it to be released to all devices is necessary.
Kudos to MS for the desktop style
Microsoft has waved a goodbye to their confusing desktop environment used in Windows 8. This is one pleasant UI change and the one that was keenly looked forward to. Finally the start menu is back to where it really belonged.
The apps in Windows desktop can be connected and accessed across all your windows devices. The ability to sense the device and readjust the interface according to the device is performed by the continuum interface. This shape – shifting interface lets the system search for a keyboard to use the tablet or the non-tablet mode.
Reserve your copy through the ‘Get Win 10‘ app available on the machine’s task bar. If you are eager to reserve one now, go ahead and select it and view the confirmation note, but later if you change your mind, no worries just select cancel.
Edge browser is a welcome change to a Windows user. If this browser could bid farewell to IE, then it will be very well appreciated as it is faster than IE and simpler to use but it is in the early stages of development. After competitors have been playing with Siri and Google Voice, Microsoft has introduced Cortana and it is available on the start menu.
Even with so many good options that are pleasant to use, there’s one thing that troubles the user to a good deal; upgrading to Windows 10. Users have been trying to upgrade and though Microsoft has helped resolve system issues, there seems to be more to come in terms of compatibility as well. For security reasons, it is best advised to wait for next updates from Microsoft before opting for an upgrade. This is a beta product which is still in its early stages of testing; wait it out before you leap!
