Windows 10--or not?
I noticed this little box at the bottom of my monitor that I never noticed before. TA DA...an offer to switch my Windows 7 to the new Windows 10.
Let me back up a little here. I'm the person that came late to the Smart Phone party. The same one that resisted Windows 8 when they bought me a new computer at work before I retired.
But we got Smart Phones and I became familiar with apps. Now Microsoft is offering to give me a free update to Windows 10 when it becomes available on July 29. I reserved a copy. I have to admit that I hate Internet Explorer and I hope Edge is different not just a re-name. I'm pretty sure Microsoft will probably support Windows 7 for as long as I will probably own this computer, but you never know. Just like the fashion industry, when they need sales they make what you own obsolete, lol.
If anyone has read anything CURRENT about why not to switch, let me know. Most posts that I read from those that were given preview copies to test have not had any real issues. At least not issues that make a difference to a technologically challenged senior.
