Windows 10

Postby Highlander » Wed Jun 17, 2015 3:49 am

I started up my laptop today and saw a little windows icon, clicked on it and a message from Microsoft offered me a FREE Windows 10 Upgrade, yes FREE and full version. I couldn't resist so I booked my free upgrade which will be available from the 29th of July 2015. This must be a first, Microsoft giving a freebie. As they say never look a gift horse in the mouth.

Yah, I bit the bullet too and agreed to the free auto download. Sure hope I don't regret it.

They are offering it free to everyone with Win7 and win8 because 8 was such a failure.

The icon is still sitting on my desktop....

i'm a little afraid because of the what if's.....

Maybe I'll bite and then when it bombs we can all sit in the forums and cry together because we got "Vista'd" again :)

Or, slap each other on the back and go, yup, it's good :)

tmaan is thinking about dat !!

Windows 10 is the last build of windows. there will be no more "new" operating sytems.

Windows 10 is a whole rebuild of the Windows operating system "again". A little history. Microsoft has really had 3 main operating systems. MS-DOS, Windows and Windows NT.

Microsoft Slapped a GUI on MS-DOS and called it 3.1. rebuilt it a few times and called it Win95, Win98, Win2000. Those copies are "home" user friendly, but not the most stable. Windows NT (networking) is not user friendly but rock solid stable. So they Merged it and called it windows VISTA.

The merge of home friendly and windows networking was a disaster in Vista. They plugged away at it and re-released Vista as Windows 7! A huge success. Now they gave Windows 7 a new look, called it windows 8! A disaster again Win8 is meh a marketing blunder copy? Who knows.

Now with everything techie going, streaming, high speed internet, 4k gaming coming next year, cloud services, tablets, and so on. Microsoft New Windows 10 will be a portable operating system.

They will continue to work on it, but the sections of the Operating system can be individually updated from Microsoft to support new technologies. Windows 10 is suppose to be truly a plug and play operating system. install it once and it's good for a 100 years. They just keep rolling out updates to modify the software to compensate for the changing market and technology.

This is why they skip windows 9 altogether. If it works as intended they really did make it to 10, the finish line.

Well, when I get it, I'll do a full back up and if it don't play nice for me, back to Win 7. And Dan, yes she wears pants. How else can I try to get into them..... :D

Stupid Windows 10 notification crashes my Win7 (Blue Screen of Death) every time I right click on it :@ :@ :@

@Moogie
If you wanna win10 notification just update your system via Windows Update, notification is hidden in some of the new update packs.

Me too, on my other laptop. I doubt they are going to give everyone a free copy of windows 10. Not everyone is going to get lucky...

It's going to be a subscription Service down the road. it's free until your device dies, not free for life. All devices have serial numbers you change computers and get a new device and your free windows 10 is gone.

Actually, I didn't have a certain update so I used the standalone installer and immediately got the logo popping up.

When I read you saying this would be the final windows the frst thing that popped into my head was subscrition basis like PhotoShop is doing. You can`t buy a stand alone version anymore, only subscribe to their in the cloud service.
