Windows 10 available for free!
Microsoft's new Windows 10 operating system is available from July 29th, and what's more - it is free! Obviously, it isn't free for everyone, but if you're already Windows 7 or 8.1, you may have noticed a little Windows logo in your toolbar, which means you can upgrade to it, free of charge.
If you hit the button, it'll let you reserve your upgrade and, when Microsoft pull the trigger, you'll get an automatic download and a new operating system.
Those who are eligible have a whole year to utilise the free offer, and once you've upgraded, you get it for keeps - this isn't a trial or anything like that.
Seeing as so many people thoroughly loathed Windows 8, this is a smart move by Microsoft - unless, of course, this new OS is even worse. You can't put anything past Microsoft these days. Either way, this is the last version of the Windows operating system ever, in the form we know it. Basically, it looks like this is it, but with tweaks and updates, just like Apple do.
Windows 10 is going to be used across all Microsoft devices, from laptops to smartphones, from desktop to tablet - not to mention Xbox and the HoloLens headset.
The big news is that the Start menu has returned, at long last.
The new Windows will ditch Internet Explorer and go with a new browser called Microsoft Edge, and, for those who like that sort of thing, the OS will come complete with the personal assistant thingummy/Siri rip-off Cortana, who was one of the stars of the immensely irritating adverts featuring Clean Bandit.
So there you have it. All go at Microsoft!
