Are you using one of the 51% of computers worldwide running Windows 7, or one of the 9.93% of computers running Windows 8.1? If this is the case then are you aware that you will only receive essential support from Microsoft such as security patches until the 17 July 2016?
Microsoft has offered Windows 7 and 8.1 customers a free upgrade to Windows 10 for a while now, however as of 29 July 2016 this offer will terminate and businesses will need to then pay a charge to upgrade.
Why should you upgrade to Windows 10?
It’s the best Windows – more than 300 million devices are already using Windows 10?
It’s familiar – The Start menu is back and improved so you get quick access to your favourite things. Your files will be preserved and the apps you’ve pinned to the task bar will be waiting for you.
It’s fast, compatible & more secure – Windows 10 starts up 28% faster than Windows 7, resumes faster, and comes with more security features than ever. And it’s designed to work with the hardware and software you already use. Find out the other benefits here.
