Joe Belfiore gives you a straightforward look at the new Windows 10 which will be released on July 29th. The video will help familiarise you with what is there, how it works and some of the features of Windows 10. The official Microsoft site is here. I put myself on the list for the free Windows 10 update. I had Windows 7 on this computer originally , then upgraded it to Windows 8 and then had to downgrade it back to 7 because Windows 8 StoreIcon nonsense kept using up my system resources and Windows 8 used to fail to boot. It all started well and I loved it , then it became too unreliable. It was odd it had settled in and then destabilised. I used to like Windows 8 and had no particular need for the start menu. I could do everything I did on Windows 7 and I used to love watching the metro screen change and move around. It was different and interesting. PCadvisor UK is regularly updating what is going on with Windows 10. If you want some tips for Windows 10, then go over to the post on InfoWorld. I am looking forward to the Windows 10 download. This will be the first time I have ever had a download of an OS like this on Windows. My MacBook does it well but, since it is a work computer, I can only download an operating system when I am permitted. That does not worry me. I am not the one who has to maintain and care for 100s of laptops. It was interesting to do a system upgrade like that and it will be interesting to compare the Windows 10 one against it. I suspect the organisation of my changeover has been going on for a couple of weeks now in the background and my hope is that it will be smooth for that reason – the prior preparation and planning stuff.
