Well, It’s here! Windows 10, the successor to Windows 8. So the question is… should you upgrade?
The short answer is, not yet. Wait a few months until the bugs are worked out…and there are bugs.
In any new major release of software there are going to be bugs, no matter how many people are out there testing, it really takes the masses to find hidden problems with any piece of software and Microsoft is no exception.
The good news is that Windows 10 is a vast improvement over Windows 8 if for nothing else, for the return of the start menu. While I was pessimistic at first, I have found that the new start menu can be customized to actually work better than the start menu in Windows 7. There are several other new features including multiple desktops, search by Cortana, and the removal of several annoying Windows 8 features which makes Windows 10 very promising.
So standby. Windows 10 is a free upgrade for users on Windows 7 8 or 8.1. You have close to a year to take advantage of the free upgrade which means you can wait a while before doing the upgrade.
The upgrade can be easy or complicated depending upon what you have installed on your computer. For myself it took me 5 separate tries to get it to install properly but in the end I prevailed.
