The Windows 10 Release Date has been announced!

First announced in April 2014, much anticipation has surrounded the official release date of Windows 10. Rumours have been laid to rest as it has finally been established that as of July 29th the free update will be readily available for users of Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

10 Best New Features in Windows 10

Recently Microsoft announced to the world the up and coming features of Windows 10 and demonstrating some pretty impressive and innovative features for its users. Although Windows 10 is still in technical preview (and therefore features could change before release) we thought it would be useful to summarise the 10 best features of this upcoming operating system here so that it might tempt you to try it for yourself.  

We believe your experiences should be mobile – not just your devices. Technology should be out of the way and your apps, services and content should move with you across devices, seamlessly and easily.

Windows 10 In-Place Upgrade from Windows 8.1

Posted by Hutton Henry on 25-Jan-2015 09:59:00


INTRODUCTION:

We could not wait to get our hands on the latest Windows 10 Technical Preview build (version 9926) following the recent press conference.  Luckily Microsoft decided to release it much earlier than the two weeks they promised so I ran an in-place upgrade on my Windows 8.1 laptop.

My objective was to test the migration process and to experience the latest version of the operating system.  Microsoft state the preview is intended for PC "experts" only and warn potential users they may experience many updates and system restarts and that the user interrface may change over time.  The bottom line is that the Windows 10 Technical preview should not be installed on main or production computers.

Microsoft have provided a lot of useful information that is worth reading before migration:

The Windows 10 Business Case

Posted by Hutton Henry on 22-Jan-2015 05:36:00


Innovation lies ahead...

We were fortunate enough to watch the recent Windows 10 announcements at a developer event held at Microsoft's offices in London.  There was genuine surprise in the room when the HoloLens was revealed - "are these guys for real?!".   Outbursts like this are uncommon for a UK audience. Just a sign of the innovation ahead of us.

By the time the event had ended we'd learnt about a ton of new features:

This was a press event with combined announcements for both the consumer and Enterprise markets. From a business perspective we learnt that (a) Windows 10 will be a free upgrade to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers and (b) Windows will become a service.  

But what struck me (and means I've been unable to sleep at night) is how we define a business case for existing Windows 7/8 users?
