Windows 10 has been with us for over five years now and we think this is the new Windows 7. We feel that its easy to use and on our machines there have been very few issues for a new operating system. In addition it still feels robust.
The Next Windows 10 update is due in Spring 2021 and is called Windows 10 21H1.
You can get the latest update, 20H2 here.
We recommend upgrading to Windows 10, especially if running Win7 as support for Win 7 expired on 14th January 2020.
Windows is now more than just an operating system.
Microsoft believes the future of Windows is as a platform for all. Like Android, the strength of Windows is in the thousands of companies that develop for it and use it in their products.
That's why Windows 10 is no longer just an operating system for 32 and 64-bit PCs. It will also run on the ARM platform for smaller tablets and smartphones.
Like Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 before it, Windows 10 is part of the Windows NT family.
Windows 10 Take Up
It’s been over five years since the consumer launch of Windows 10. Microsoft pulled no punches in attempting to accelerate the adoption of this new PC operating system by providing free upgrades for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users. There has not been an operating system since Windows XP with as steep a migration curve as Windows 10 and we are awaiting the next major update early in 2021. Update 21H1.
More than 1 billion active devices are running Windows 10 which has around 73% of the takeup for Windows PC's. The latest version is 20H2.
