Windows 10 is here!

windows 10 Today, Microsoft are going to start rolling out Windows 10, for free to those that want it. From now, it'll always be free, as Microsoft stop trying to use their OS as a thing to make money with.

So what's new?

Well, the Start Menu is back (that's not new, but it will be a relief to some) and there'll also be the addition of Cortana (Siri-alike and best friend of dance-pop outfit, Clean Bandit) and Microsoft Edge.

According to Microsoft, upgrading to Windows 10 will see them using a system that is easy to understand if you've used Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

Lots of people have reserved their right to download Windows 10 today, who will be notified in batches, when it is ready to be downloaded. How do you download it?

Well, if you're upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8, open Windows Update (search for Windows Update in Start Menu or Start Screen) and if you're eligible, you're away! It is very, very easy. It is sure to be a jammed network, so don't worry if it all isn't happening immediately - you'll get it eventually.

    Recommended for Windows 7 desktop and laptop users. For tablet users it feels like a huge step backwards if you've got used to Windows 8 gestures, which have been all but dropped in Windows 10. Shame.

What do you think?
