I actually use Windows 8, and even almost considered going Mac based solely on how much I didn't like it. Now more than a year later I have become comfortable with the random quirks and hidden lists that Windows 8 supplies, but I'm still not happy.
When I first heard about Windows 10 I was not optimistic. I figured it would be the same, if anything more confusing, but the Irish frugality in me was excited by the prospect of FREE.
Well today, Windows 10 and the first reviews are being rolled out, and I might just have to jump on the upgrading train quick.
" Yahoo's David Pogue writes: "You really are going to love Windows 10. You’ll almost certainly want to upgrade your computers to it, especially since it’s free," and that "if you’re a PC veteran, then you’ll recognize Windows 10: It’s pretty much Windows 7, with Cortana, nicer typography, and a few new features."
The Verge's Tom Warren says that "Windows 10 has some great additions over Windows 8 and Windows 7, and it really feels like a good blend of the familiarity of Windows 7 and some of the new features of Windows 8. It’s not irritating to use, and you don’t need a tutorial to find the Start menu. It just works like you’d expect." "
I might take many of the reviewer's advice though and wait for around six weeks for the bugs and kinks to be worked out, as well as the apps to be upgraded to this operating system.
