Windows 10 Breaking News

You may have heard it first when I blogged about Microsoft’s recent announcement which indicated that they would effectively pull the plug on Windows 7 and 8/8.1 support for 6th Gen and higher processors after July 2017. In an effort to get this word out quickly we emailed, posted to our blog, and even recorded a video. Our commitment has been ongoing, and we have been busy talking to customers and gathering feedback for Microsoft. We found that many of our customers felt this change had a negative impact and put a severe crimp in already strained IT budgets and plans. It appears Microsoft has heard the feedback and announced the cutoff date has been extended to July 17, 2018. Here’s what it all means.

Microsoft is slotted to release Windows 10 this summer— July 29th. Many people are skeptical of their ambition to create an OS that will function seamlessly across all platforms and devices, especially due to the criticism they received over Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Microsoft tried to deliver 8 and 8.1 in the same fashion, and I think it’s safe to say that they weren’t exactly successful. The OS itself was laid out very nicely, but is without a doubt optimized for touch devices; trying to navigate the tiles on a non-touch device or even trying to figure out how to shut the device down proved to be a frustrating task (even I’m guilty of not being able to find the darn button!) So what makes Windows 10 different? Read on to find out.
