Windows 10

post-loop-windows10-logoWindows 10 is the newest Operating System by Microsoft. This is an exciting version that brings together the best of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 while also including some new great features.

Windows 10 is a free update for existing computers running the latest versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. For more information on updating view the Microsoft's FAQ page.

Microsoft has worked closely with hardware and software vendors, partners and the Insider Team to have this version of Windows 10 be a much more solid and reliable product out of the box. But in any upgrade scenario there can be issues with 3rd party programs and apps. As always testing of your mission critical apps and hardware should be done prior to releasing the update to your employees. If you need assistance with setting up a test environment for your business ABN would be glad to help.
