We’re sure that everyone has been hearing all the buzz and excitement for the new Windows 10 upgrade and we are very excited and can’t wait to see what this advanced operating system can do to improve business productivity. Regardless of all the excitement and anticipation we suggest sitting tight and remaining patient during the initial roll out of Windows 10 free upgrade and urge our partners to wait before upgrading.
Currently Microsoft is offering a free upgrade to Windows 10 for a year as long as you are currently using Windows 7 or Windows 8. Running a blind update of an operating system without doing some investigating first could be a major mistake. One word to describe the potential problems with the free upgrade would be compatibility. There is no telling which of the vendors you work with regularly have updated their software in order to be compatible with the new Windows 10 upgrade.
Compatibility issues would have the potential to bring business productivity to a halt due to technical problems. Things that can possibly be affected are printers, monitors, video adapters, software, license keys, scanners and other hardware.
In a recent update Microsoft has pushed out an icon onto the desktops of all Windows 7 or Windows 8 users in order to reserve a copy of the free upgrade to Windows 10. If this icon has made its way to your desktop and you happened to click and reserve, don’t worry we have instructions on how to opt out for the time being.
