    Windows 10 is on its way

    Life, James Hein, Published on 17/06/2015

    » Windows 10 is coming and if you have seen the little Windows icon in your tray then you can get your upgrade for free. Before you click and accept however, you may want to consider if all the drivers you need for your computer peripherals are available. Printers, scanners and other devices that work perfectly well with Windows 7 and 8 may suddenly stop working if the drivers are not also ready to install. This will also include devices inside laptops like modems and other bits and pieces. For each device visit the appropriate sites and check that there is a Windows 10 driver download ready to go for you 32 or 64 bit operating system upgrade. For something like a notebook I would check with the manufacturer directly to make sure it will work under Windows 10. I have been caught out before with this. You may also want to try the new operating system on someone else's computer to make sure you like the updated look and feel. It appears to be a combination of Windows 7 and 8 styles with a few new bits added so it is trying to be something for everyone, a concept that sometimes works well. It is best to try it first to avoid another OS shock like the many experienced with the change from Windows 7 to 8.x.
