Why you should upgrade to Windows 10
Windows 10 is to be release later this month. In this post, I will tell you why you should consider upgrading to the next version of Windows being released on 29th of July. Microsoft has made a lot of improvement over Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 to make Windows 10 a success.
Here is some of the best reason to upgrade to Windows 10:
The upgrade will be free
The upgrade will be free for all Windows 7 and Windows 8 users, as long as you upgrade within the first year after the release. Windows 10 should be able to run in the same hardware as Windows 7 and Windows 10. You might need to update devices drivers, but it should not be requiring more power to run.
The same system across multiple devices
If you use Windows 10 in multiple platform, you will get the same experience on mobile, desktop and tablets. All devices will use the same app store and the apps will be optimized for multiple platforms.
Linux and OS X has had it for years, Virtual desktops. In Windows 10, you can create all the desktops you want to organize your programs and workflow. This is something Windows has been missing for years.
Disappointed about Windows 8?
Well, a lot of desktop users that has been forced to switch from Windows XP or Windows 7 into Windows 8 has been complaining about how hard it has been to get used to the new UI in Windows 8. Microsoft has really been listening to all the critics and addressed must of the issue in Windows 10. The Start Menu is back in a new and improved version and gone is the “Start screen” also called Modern UI. Instead, Microsoft has combined the best from both world into a new Start Menu with Tiles and Apps docked into the Start Menu. This works a lot better if you ask me. If you are using a tablet, you can enter something called Tablet Mode making your apps and start menu going full screen making it all more friendly for touch devices. Windows 10 has also dropped the Charms bar that many users was struggling with. All in all Microsoft has learned from Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and have fixed a lot of the issues that classic desktop fans has been complaining about.
DirectX 12 for the games
If you are a hardcore gamer you will be happy to hear that Windows 10 will come with DirectX 12 which should give improved performance and graphical features to new PC games for those with compatible graphics cards. Microsoft are saying you will be excited, only time can tell if they are right.
New Web Browser
If you think that Internet Explorer is a slow, buggy web browser, you are right. That is why Microsoft has developed a brand new browser from scratch called Microsoft Edge (Code Name: Spartan). Their own test says it is faster than Google Chrome and Firefox, but if it is ready to take up the battle only time can tell. Internet Explorer will still be available in Windows 10 for backward compatibility with plugins and old website.
