We are just about two months away from the end of a first.
Microsoft allowed for the first time to have a free upgrade to Windows 10. It is only free if you accept it in the first year. That means come July 29th, the option for a free upgrade if you have Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 will go away. It also means that, eventually, the nagging pop-up trying to convince you to upgrade will go away as well.
What does that mean for you?
In short, if you haven’t upgraded, and are thinking about it the time to decide is NOW. Microsoft will pull the plug on the free upgrade in just a few short weeks. If you wait till July 30th, you will not be able to take advantage of it.
Should I do it?
There is lots of debate about should you upgrade, and Wolfe Computer Solutions has moved to the side of yes. Why? Read on!
We have been using it since it’s inception as a testing product, and the pros are outweighing the cons. If you would like to see some of the things that we like about Windows 10, check out this earlier blog post.
As well, our studied opinion is that Windows 10 is an important platform, and one that all computer users should and will be using for the next 7-10 years. Also, as Microsoft goes, we all know that support for Windows 7 and Windows 8 will eventually discontinued and this is a great way to extend the life of your hardware.
So if you have decided to take the plunge and move to Windows 10. What do you do?
There are 3 options:
- Download it and do it yourself.
- Let a “techie” friend help you.
- Call the experts at Wolfe Computer Solutions.
However, in our experience, it is important that the upgrade be installed on a newly formatted or new new hard drive after first properly backing up important data files, programs and settings. This should be done by a professional.
As the Windows 10 Free Upgrade offer is rapidly coming to a close, we are offering a full update service (backup, Windows 10 install and data/programs/setting restoration) with a 48-hour turnaround.
