you are running Windows 7 or 8 you are probably getting notified on the
taskbar that your computer can be updated to Windows 10 for FREE. Wow!
Fantastic. New Stuff Free. Oh, is there a catch?
No, there is no catch. Microsoft released it's latest operating system to the public as a free update to owners of Windows 7 and 8. Windows 10 introduces some much asked for changes to the desktop to address usage issues that users experienced on Windows 8. Additionally, there are enhanced security and performance improvements.
before you upgrade you MUST make sure that your system is compatible with the
latest hardware drivers. You need to check to ensure that the software you
use is compatible as some vendors have not tested their software yet on
Windows 10 so it may not work properly. You should make sure that your system
has the latest software patches, that your settings are documented and you
have a good current backup of your system in the event that they upgrade
fails and you need to restore your computer.
aside some time for the upgrade as the download and installation can
take quite awhile even if all goes well. Be patient and make sure that you
have tech support available in the event that you run into issues.
the end you have to decide if the upgrade makes sense for your particular
situation. Will you be disappointed with the way that the new desktop looks,
works, and feels? If your system is getting old it might make better sense to
wait and buy a new laptop or computer system with the software already
installed. In the end it is up to you to decide if Windows 10 is the
right upgrade at this time.
