Windows 10 Rolls Out – Upgrade Available to Install Now

/ 5 years ago

Microsoft Windows 10 Upgrade Windows Update Free

Windows 10 has officially arrived for Windows users. For a lucky few who have already reserved their copies of the new Microsoft OS, Windows Update is already offering a 2.699 GB download to upgrade from your current OS. The rollout is staggered so don’t fret if you don’t see it for a while yet. For those that are more impatient to get their free upgrade, ISO images are available. These will allow in-place upgrades, but they will also allow for a fresh install for those that want to do that.

Given that Windows 10 is free for upgrades for the next year, there really is no need to rush and upgrade right away. For those who haven’t tried Windows 10 during the beta test, it might be a good idea to hold off installing the new OS on a production machine and let others be the guinea pigs. There are some concerns about incompatibilities and automatic updating though Microsoft has addressed these concerns somewhat.

For those who aren’t eligible for an upgrade, you should be able to pick retail boxed CDs and USBs relatively soon. Windows 10 is set to receive support for the next 10 years and pioneer Microsoft’s new focus on Software as a Service. Microsoft attempted to address some of the concerns users had for Windows 8 and we shall soon see how the public receives this new OS.
