A First Look at Microsoft Windows 10

Posted 2 years 172 days ago ago by     0 Comments

http:///Windows 10 is now available from Microsoft, with one reviewer calling it “a union of the best qualities of Windows 7 and Windows 8 -- the desktop features of the former with some of the touch-friendly aspects of the latter.” (Senior Editor Devindra Hardawar, engadget.com, July 28th 2015)

Dan Allen, Regional Sales Manager for PCS Mobile, had been using it only for a few days on his Microsoft Surface tablet when he reported that “it’s an improvement over Windows 8.”  It fixes a lot of the issues that Windows 8 had.  It’s much easier to use and much more intuitive. It actually brings in a lot of features that Mac users have been using for a couple of years that make it much more productive software. Two big features are the Multiple Work windows you can create as well as the Notification Center. The new web browser, “Edge”, which replaces Internet Explorer is extremely fast. There’s still a ton of new features that I haven’t really discovered yet but overall it’s proving to be good software.

While not every user might agree, Microsoft has made it widely known that Windows 10 is the operating system that will replace Windows 7 and Windows 8. Extended support for these current operating systems will end in 2020 and 2023 respectively. (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/lifecycle)

Panasonic began offering Windows 10 OS on July 29, 2015. PSCNA will begin offering some models with Windows 10 preloaded in late 2015 or early 2016. More information for Panasonic customers on an upgrade path to Windows 10 can be found HERE.
