Should I Upgrade to Windows 10? 

By Switch, the I.T. Support Robot

It’s been announced! Microsoft is going to release Windows 10 for free to users who have Windows 8.1 installed and to those who have a Windows 8 phone. Information has not yet been released if Windows 7 and older will get it for free as well. However, a question remains: Should you take advantage of this amazing deal? Let’s find out. 

Our Honest Recommendation 

Yes, you should definitely take advantage of this offer, but not yet. New releases always have minor issues, occasionally the issue is a major one. So, by waiting 3-6 months, you let other people be the guinea pigs and test out the new product. Then, Microsoft has a chance to work out all the bugs. Once that time frame is complete, you’re free to download or use the product without the worry that it’s going to cause problems.

Microsoft is offering Windows 10 free to current users of Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8. 

Will Windows 10 Work with my Current Software?

This is a very important factor to consider. Being that Windows 10 is a brand new operating system, it may not be compatible with all of your other software. If you are worried that you may not be able to install Windows 10, give us a call. We’ll come out and assess your computer. Then we’ll let you know if you need to upgrade your software. 

How Long Will this Offer Last?

This offer from Microsoft is going to last 1 year. So you definitely have time to think about it, make sure all the issues are worked out, and and verify that the new OS will work for you and your business.

When will it be released?

As of now, we are still waiting on a date, but as soon as we find out, we will let you know.
