Welcome to Windows 10

One OS to rule them all...

I guess they skipped calling it Windows 9 to put as much distance between the new product and Windows 8 as possible.

my workplace just upgraded to windows 7. i guess windows 10 won't become relevant to most people until the year 2021.

Dans comment, I laughed too cause my work just did the upgrade too
I just don't know if people like me. I know when they don't like me 'cause they'll say things like, 'Yeah, that's him, officer.'

I might think differently if I still drove a desk doing corporate/enterprise shit for 45hrs a week (which of course....I don't).

But once you use Mac OSX it is sooooo hard to get back in front of a Windows box.

It took my old man over 10 years to finally move from XP to 7. He instantly switched it into classic mode but has constant rants about how sucky Office 365 is compared to Office 2002.

That's a pretty good effort considering 7 was only released 5 years ago

Most of our PC's are on 7 at work. There are a couple on XP still and they are painful to use.. :(

Yeah, free for licenced versions of Win 7 & Win 8/8.1

If you've run the latest updates (assuming you're on a retail version of Windows), you should see a new system tray icon inviting you to upgrade for free. The free upgrade will be available for the next 12 months. If you're on an Enterprise SKU of Windows, you won't see it as these are under a different licence agreement.

I read somewhere it'll be like $110 for Windows 10 Home, and $199 for Windows 10 Professional. That's if you don't take advantage of the free upgrade and want to buy it outright.
