It’s July 29th, and to Microsoft fans and Windows fans, it’s a big day. It’s the day that Windows 10 arrives, and takes away the woes and problems of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 to some. But, as the software arrived in over 190 countries, it still will work its way across the internet in its own time.
While Windows 10 was announced for July 29th, Microsoft is making it available on retail shelves today. The free upgrades for users on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 will arrive in scheduled intervals, and leaving some anxious and waiting for it to arrive in their download tray.
The Best Windows Ever
Windows 10 is being described as the best Windows ever, and with its familiar start menu, taskbar, and desktop, it brings back the best of Windows to users. It is already compatible with hardware currently in use, and free updates means its always updated. Plus, with OneDrive it gives users off-site cloud storage.
Windows 10 gives users Windows Defender and Smart Screen to guard against malware, and Windows Hello with safer and more secure passwords. It is also more personal with voice, pen, and gesture inputs. Additionally, Office and Skype work in unison, and includes the personal digital assistant Cortana.
New Innovations and Excitement
Along with the noted items, Windows 10 gives users the new Microsoft Edge browser, which will allow for quicker browising, reading, and markups. It’s new Xbox App gives users the complete gaming experience, and gives users a new Companion Phone app. Lastly, it supports HoloLens and new apps as well.
The Windows 10 version available today, also includes new apps that have been overhauled from the start. These include the Photos, Maps, Groove, Movies & TV, and revised Office apps. For businesses and the enterprise, it offers enterprise level security, management tools, and reasons to upgrade.
