So I got the confirmation email today regarding my reservation of the Windows 10 upgrade available starting July 29, 2015. A few days ago, I got a pop up notification on my taskbar on how to get Windows 10 upgrade for free.
Yes, it’s a full version of Windows 10, not an upgrade, and it will require 3 GB of download space. Among the features of Windows 10 includes:
- Designed for speed and ease – Windows 10 starts fast, resumes fast and comes with more security features. It will also have an ability to snap up to 4 things on the screen at once.
- Amazing new features – including Cortana (personalized digital assistant), all-new browser and built-in apps like Photos, Maps, Messaging, Music and Video
- Apps, Games, Films and Music – new features available from the Windows Store.
I wonder why Microsoft skipped the Windows 9 and just proceeded with naming their latest Operating System as Windows 10. Do they consider Windows 8.1 as Windows 9? Also, Microsoft has a history of 1 OS failing after a successful one. Take Windows XP for example. It’s a successful operating system, followed by Windows Vista, which is considered as a failure. Next came a successful Windows 7 followed by a failed Windows 8. They fixed that failure in Windows 8.1. Hopefully all major issues by Windows 8 and 8.1 are finally addressed in the upcoming Windows 10.
I can’t wait to try the new Windows 10 Operating System.
