Windows 10

Remember way back in 1995 when Microsoft introduced Windows 95?  That was a huge step from Windows 3.1.  Since then we’ve had many operating systems, some good some bad.  Windows XP had a 14 year run and 10% of all desktop users are still holding out.  Windows ME and Vista were dogs, but Windows 7 brought back the faith.

Windows 10Windows 8 came out a couple of years ago and has been a total flop.  Now Microsoft is trying their best to pull us back into the fold with Windows 10.  When it’s released sometime this year it will be a free upgrade for users of 7 and 8.  They are promising big changes and maybe even a respectable start button!
