So, I did something today that has taken a few months to prepare for. If you're like me, adjusting to big changes can be a struggle. It takes both mental and tangible preparation, a lot of deep breathing, and occupies a huge portion of your time. Sometimes, however, changes like this are necessary for making your company, your life, or both, better. Let me share my advice on making the change.
Now that Windows 10 has had a little time out, the rumor mill has done plenty of work. In fact, it's done so much that I'm getting questions from my client base as to whether or not it's a good idea to upgrade. They list off the things they've read on some article from a less-than-credible source on the internet and express their worry that they'll fall to the same ill fate. Today, we're going to tackle four of the biggest myths we've encountered.
This week we got our hands on our copy of Windows 10. After a solid week of use, we feel that we’ve got a grasp on it enough to give you our opinion of its strengths and weaknesses. Microsoft’s much anticipated release promised the best of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 in one solid, modernized package. Most, even the anti-Microsoft crowd, have excitedly waited for this new operating system to see if the aged giant could breathe new life in to its biggest offering. For Microsoft, the success of this product is life-or-death, and most critics so far believe they’ve got a real shot at a comeback. Here’s our take.
Recently, Microsoft announced that the upgrade path from Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 to Windows 10 would be free to everyone.This decision, although beneficial in a dramatic way to Microsoft, is a rather surprising one considering Microsoft's history with Windows versions and licenses. Today, we're going to take a brief look at that history, as well as the theories on why Microsoft made this decision and what it will mean for both users and the software giant.
In case you missed it, we heard some of the most exciting news in the past year (in our nerdy opinion). Microsoft unveiled a consumer version of Windows 10 to the world. While the final product is still far enough out that it's likely to be different than what we saw, most of the new operating system should be the same as the demonstration. That in mind, here's what we feel is the most important information to be pulled from this preview.
