Not upgraded to Windows 8 yet (or even 7)? Then don’t bother as 10 is on the way. OK, I know I wrote about Windows 9 back in August but I am having trouble keeping up with Microsoft!

There is the usual hype about a new version of Windows and why you absolutely must get it but to be honest, I wouldn’t rush! It won’t be available to the general public for a while yet and in the meantime any new computers you buy will have Windows 8.1 (or possibly 7).

I am not going to write a whole lot here as there are plenty of articles already on the Web from the experts and many from those who think they are experts and you can Google these easy enough.

By all accounts it is much more mobile friendly (for phones and tablets), moves even further towards using the “tiles” which we first saw in Windows 8, has a redesigned Start menu and it also will have a new version of Internet Explorer.

One thing I do like, if it works as it says, is the dynamic interface that shifts from the modern user interface (think tablets and phones) to the more familiar desktop interface depending on the device.

Possibly the most exciting thing about Windows 10 is that Microsoft have just announced that it will be a free upgrade from Windows 7 and 8.1. Again, don’t get too excited as there are conditions but it is a step in the right direction.

More on Windows 10 later.
