On July 29 2015, Microsoft unveiled Windows 10. No, I don’t have my copy because I’m still struggling with the dreaded 0x.80070002 error. But just in case you aren’t, but don’t see the free update icon, here’s a helpful article from Microsoft.
Some Info on the New Windows 10:
Windows 10 download is free to “qualifying users of Windows 7, Windows 8 and 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Phone.
“What?” you ask, “Windows 7 gets a free Windows 10 upgrade?” Yep. Here’s what I’d do if it were me with Windows 7…
I’d wait. I have a netbook with Windows 7. I’ll download my free Windows 10 upgrade for my netbook then wait. I have one year after the rollout date of Windows 10 to install it.
Within that year, two things are going to happen. 1) I have Windows 8 on my laptop so I’ll upgrade on it first and test Windows 10 for myself. 2) Enough time and enough people will have tested Windows 10 in eight months or so that I can make an educated decision if I wish to permanently rid myself of Windows 7 (the last stable Windows OS).
Remember, I still have to resolve a Windows 8 error code or two before I can download Windows 10. When I said Windows 7 was the last stable version of Windows, I wasn’t kidding.
I’ll let you know later what I think of the new OS.
Have a great week-end, and thanks for following Patti’s Pathways.:-D
