Windows 10 Now Available

Facebooktwitterredditmail

windows10Microsoft has officially started rolling out Windows 10 and if you’re a Windows 7 or 8 user, you are eligible for a free upgrade. Of course the questions should be asked, should you upgrade?

If you only have one computer, you may want to wait a few weeks to jump on the upgrade. As usual with any new operating system, once it hits the mainstream there are bound to be a variety of bugs discovered that just couldn’t have been anticipated in any amount of beta testing.

While I was an early adopter of Windows 8, I plan to wait at least a few weeks as my eligible system is my main system (and seeing as I have a complex multi-skype podcast configuration for the GonnaGeek Podcast, I just can’t take the chance of potential downtime).

However, if you are someone who is ready to adopt early, keep an eye on the “Get Windows 10” app that should have appeared in your lower right tray of your desktop. Since Microsoft is rolling out the upgrade in phases, you may not be showing as having it available now. Keep an eye on the app as I’m sure soon enough you will be notified.

Have you upgraded to Windows 10? We’d love to hear what you think in the comments below. Conversely, if you’re planning on waiting, tell us your reasons why – we’d love to hear from you too.
