Today is the Windows 10 Release day !
It’s a big day for Microsoft & Windows 10 Fans Today, 29th July 2015 !
Those who have been trying out the Windows 10 Technical Preview so far, you have many reasons to feel happy about, as Microsoft has released Windows 10 today in 199 countries. Microsoft has planned promotional events in several cities around the globe.
This time, Microsoft has taken a careful and practical approach to ensure the Windows 10 Upgrade works out smooth. I was amazed to know that Windows 10 Upgrade is completely free if you already own Windows 7 or Windows 8 license at your home PC or on your personal laptops. However, the Enterprise users will have to shell out some dollars to get their machines upgraded to the brand new Windows 10 Enterprise variants. Currently, Microsoft seems to only support online updates for Home and PC Users, looks like the Enterprise Windows 10 Upgrades will happen in a month or two.
Microsoft isn’t known to give free OS upgrades so far, Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella targets 1 million Windows 10 OS upgrades in about 3 years timeframe. The idea is to attract PC Application Software Developers to upgrade to Windows 10 free of cost , which will encourage them to develop interesting and entertaining Windows apps that will strengthen Windows 10 Eco system in the years to come.
Though I’m a Mac user since many years, based on my Windows 10 Technical Preview experience, I would strongly suggest to upgrade to Windows 10 as this is an ultra fast, stable and good looking OS compared to Windows 7 or Windows 8.x.
I’ll write a detailed technical review on Windows 10 once I get a chance to upgrade my Technical Preview to the brand new Windows 10 OS release.
