The opportunity to get Windows 10 for free is ending this month, July 2016. Windows 10 will be the Microsoft OS from now on, being updated or upgraded not replaced by a new Windows version. Those who miss this opportunity will have to buy Windows 10 for $119 instead of getting it for free.
Links to interesting and timely information / opinion on implementing Microsoft Windows 10.
Windows 10 to be released this summer 2015 is said to be a free upgrade from Windows 7 and 8, even if they were pirated.
Bad news. Microsoft doesn’t yet have a viable replacement for Windows 7 and they are starting to terminate it. Using Windows 8 is like writing government specs on a cell phone: it might be possible in the same way that technically, I could write all software in machine code only — no compilers — and loaded the code into memory manually using paper tape. No wait: cell phones have that blasted spelling correct/corrupt-er. Make that writing in machine language while a rogue virus randomly changes the codes that I have already written.
http://www.cnet.com/news/microsoft-jumps-to-windows-10/ Microsoft Windows 10 will drop the insistence that desktops all be converted to touch screen and revert to a conventional user interface, enhanced by the Windows 8 features that people accepted. A hierarchical menu is back.
