Windows 10 has been with us for nearly 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 2020 and is called windows 10 20H1.
We recommend upgrading to Windows 10, especially if running Win7 as support for this expires 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.

More than 900 million active devices are running Windows 10 which has 58% of the takeup for Windows PC's. The latest version is 1909.
