Reasons To Upgrade
In their blog post, Microsoft lists a number of reasons to upgrade to Windows 10. The biggest is the familiarity in Windows 10. This is because most Windows users have a vested interest in Windows, and want the next version. Second, personal things with Cortana will give users a personal assistant nearby.
Microsoft is using its new browser Microsoft Edge as the third reason. Gaming, particularly on Windows 10 and the new Xbox app make the fourth reason perfect with gamers. The fifth reason and sixth reasons circle around doing multiple things, and security. Both allow for more to get done, and safer.
Apps, Continuum and New Windows Store
The four last items are pretty exciting for Windows 10. The new Windows Hello will be available shortly after the launch, and this biometric assistant will help with passwords globally. New built-in apps have been also redone for Windows 10, and are present in all the apps available in Windows 10.
The last two items circle around continuum on Windows 10 and the new Windows Store. Continuum allows for seamless working across Windows devices, and should improve productivity for many. Lastly, a new and overhauled Windows Store should make apps and programs easier to purchase and download daily.
