Inevitably it looks like all PC users are going to have to upgrade to Windows 10.
I was wondering if those in the group that have upgraded would share their experience and what previous version they upgraded from?
Yes, Michael is right, Microsoft wants you to upgrade to Windows 10! As I mentioned last week, a couple of months ago Microsoft started some strong arm tactics to get everyone to upgrade. Brad Chacos over at PCworld.com to describes some of the strong-arm tactics that Microsoft is using. The pressure is mounting! You WILL upgrade to Windows 10! If you want to control when your upgrade happens I suggest you see my last post on Windows 10.
I have a little experience in this area because I bought my wife a new Windows 10 laptop for Christmas and had the job of moving her from Windows 7 to Windows 10. The only complaint I have is that despite the fact I got a laptop with twice as big a hard drive as her Windows 7 laptop (her Windows 10 laptop has a 128 GB drive) she is within a few GB of running out of hard disk space. Part of the explanation is all the promotional software that comes on new Windows laptops. Other than disk space her transition has been fairly smooth. But she is not a Lightroom and Photoshop user.
For those that have upgraded what was your experience moving to Windows 10?
