Windows 10

Microsoft has announced the release of Windows 10 this summer – July 29th to be exact.  This new version is reported to be an intuitive mix of Windows 7 and Windows 8 – bringing new enhancements like virtual assistant, Cortana and the replacement of Internet Explorer. For owners of Windows 7 and Windows 8, this upgrade will be free for one year.  In fact, you may have seen the update icon on your taskbar, which would allow you to register for the update. Please be aware that this is only a demo for up to a year. Once the demo’s evaluation period has run out you will be forced to purchase a license for the product and it will no longer be free.

While this all sounds great, we do not recommend that you install this preview. As many of us have experienced, early versions of software updates tend to be unstable, and may cause instability with some of the current software you are running.   If this Windows update is something you want to do, please call us, we can help you navigate the process easier and work through any potential software conflicts you may have.
