Windows 10 – have you upgraded yet?

I have read some reviews of Windows 10 that state it is what Windows 8 should have been… I am inclined to agree.

I was never really a fan of Windows 8 and always found myself going back to Windows 7. I have to admit, the whole “Start Menu” thing was a bit of an issue for me, and don’t get me started on Metro!!!

I won’t lie and say that I have put Windows 10 through its paces but instead will say I have simply ‘used it’ in a day to day working environment. I have found that I took to Windows 10 much easier that 8 or 8.1. It has a much more familiar feel to it and I think that people who held off on switching from Windows 7 to 8/8.1 will find this a much smoother transition as Windows 10 feels much more like a desktop Operating System compared to 8’s Tablet feel.

Windows 8/8.1 seemed more geared towards touch screen devices, which isn’t a bad thing, unless your computer doesn’t have a touch screen!

It hasn’t been all plain sailing though. The main issues I have come across with Windows 10 are with our customers that have used the upgrade option in Windows 7 and 8/8.1.  I can report, however, that I performed a fresh install of Windows 10 on my computer and did not have any issues, although I did keep a second partition with my Windows 8.1 installation… just in case!
