Windows 10 is coming but…..

On July 29, Microsoft will release its latest desktop operating system: Windows 10.

Windows 10 will include many new features including: faster startup, a new “Start” button, a new web browser and Cortana - Microsoft’s answer to Siri and Google Now.

Best of all, Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for computers running Windows 7, 8 or 8.1. In fact, some of you may already see a button appear in your System Tray which allows you to reserve your copy of the Windows 10 upgrade.

HOWEVER: we are strongly recommending that you wait!

Windows 10 has lots of promise and we began evaluating it a couple of months ago.

But, in our experience, new operating systems frequently have bugs and unexpected incompatibilities. And, as your IT provider, it’s our responsibility to ensure that your IT environment remains stable and secure.

We’ll be running extensive testing of Windows 10 over the summer. As soon as we’re comfortable that it’s ready for general use, we’ll be in touch with you to make arrangements to install it.

Until then, we’d advise you to wait. It’s always tempting to reach for that shiny new bauble, but sometimes the tried-and-true is the safer bet.
