upgrade to Windows 10

If you have a PC computer you’ve possibly seen this window, or something like it, pop up when you turn your computer on. What are you to do? Well, I don’t want to tell you what to do, but here’s what I’m going to do.

Wait…Wait…And then wait some more.

The free upgrade to Windows 10 will be available (for those with PCs running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1) until August 2016. So there’s plenty of time for early adopters to discover and protest what’s wrong with Windows 10 and give Microsoft a chance to fix the bugs.

When I do take the plunge and upgrade (over this winter during a snow storm when I’ve nothing better to do) I plan to document my experience and share my tips on how to upgrade and what you’ll find that’s different – both good and bad. Stay tuned!

If you want to read more from the horse’s mouth, here are links to Windows 10 Specifications Page and Windows 10 Upgrade Page.
