Charlotte, NC (PressExposure) June 27, 2015 -- Microsoft finally announced that Windows 10 will be released on July 29. It's one of the most expected OS released in the recent years after Win8 virtually failing to please majority of users. Most of desktop users are still stuck with Windows 7 and for a good reason, and not even one reason but plenty. Win 7 is a stable and well developed OS, it suits desktop use 100% unlike Windows 8 with wired and uncomfortable Windows Screen instead of Menu. "7" has easy access to most features and settings, it work fine on older hardware and is very familiar to all users of previous versions. "8" belongs to tablets and phones, devices with touch support, and it should stay there.
Windows 10 on the other hand took all the best from both previous versions. It incorporates ease of use and familiarity from "7" and modern functionality and optimization from "8". It does not force any features down your throat but rather lets you choose what you want to seen on your scree, more of an old-style or closer to modern view. You can customize almost every aspect of new OS according to your wishes, believes and preferences.
Some of the most notable features of Windows 10:
- DirectX 12 for games and other software
- Cortana - your personal digital assistant
- new awesome Start Menu, easy to personalize
- absence of dreaded Start screen for desktops (you can bring it back though)
- new clean Edge browser, should be fast and easy to use
- redesigned Windows Store
- More to come!
We can say that Windows 10 should be fantastic, at least we hope so. And consider it again - its a free upgrade from Windows 7 and 8.1 (at least for now), why would you want to skip it if no negatives surfaced yet? Have you seen that white Windows logo in bottom-right corner of your desktop screen? Its an invitation to free upgrade to Windows 10. It will stay there for year after launch, then you will loose that free option. At this point we can recommend Windows 10 upgrade over both 7 and 8.1, as we believe Microsoft did really good job at listening to customers and improving all aspects of OS experience.
