Microsoft will release Windows 10 on July 29th!
« on: June 02, 2015, 08:58:30 AM »
After months of speculation Microsoft has officially announced its Windows 10 software will launch globally on 29 July.
The Washington-based firm said Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users will have one year from this date to take advantage of the free upgrade.
And once a device is upgraded to Windows 10, Microsoft said it will continue to keep it up-to-date for the supported lifetime of the device at no cost.

Hi Geoff- believe you have been a Beta user of Windows 10- any advantages for the non accomplished PC user in your opinion?
In saying that am on a recent 8.1 issue so I guess the question should be how easy is the changeover to Windows 10 since I presume the inherent  advantages of support will then be extended past the "cut off" for 8.1!. ::)

Here is an article that should answer your question, Colin. Personally I'm impressed.

Even sooner than July 29th it seems....

After a Windows Update completed this morning I now have a new Icon in my Task Bar inviting me to update to Windows 10. Watch this space  :)

As I said I have had it for a few months now and have had no glitches except my Kaspersky Virus protection would not work.  I have been relying on Windows Defender till the Kasdpersky update arrives.

The Windows 10 Icon was an invitation to reserve my update.

"Congratulations on reserving Windows 10.
Your free upgrade will be available from July 29th, and now that you’ve reserved it, you won’t miss a minute of Windows 10 helping you do great things."

I await July 29th like everyone else!

I have made my reservation for a "free" Windows 10 upgrade so fingers crossed. :-X

Any Computer Group feedback on the new "improved" Skype Programme? ::)
