Microsoft launches Windows 10

Well, it is finally here – Microsoft has officially launched the new Windows 10 operating system.

As mentioned before the new OS will come in waves with the first one touching users of Windows 7 and Windows 8 who can now update their Windows versions to Windows 10 by using the Internet. The whole process works as follows – it is handled by a reservation system that tells Microsoft you want to upgrade by using the Get Windows 10 (GWX) application that you have presumably downloaded. Then your current version of Windows starts downloading the Windows 10 installation files in a temporary folder. Once all the files arrive the user gets a message that the actual update process is ready to start. The good news is that the update process requires no intervention on your side and when it’s done all you have to do is customize a few things and you are done. Now if the whole process seems to be too slow, do not despair – there are 350 million Windows users who want to get Windows 10 in this way so it may take a few days or even weeks. Sorry, folks, we warned you!

Windows 10 is a free upgrade for users of genuine versions of Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and comes with a redesigned Start Menu, a personal assistant called Cortana, a completely new web browser called Edge, the new DirectX 12 API, various new features, built-in apps and much more.

Now if you already are one lucky user of Windows 10, drop us a line and let us know what you think of the new OS.
