Now the questions is do you want to upgrade now?

I have been using Windows 10 preview since it was open to the public and got the latest update over the weekend.  Honestly i do not believe it is ready for consumer consumption, it is a great Operating System (OS) but still needs some more tweaking for it to be a perfect OS.

If you do decided to go with the upgrade Microsoft has tried to make it as seamless as possible, in just a few clicks your reservation is complete and you suppose to get Windows 10 upgrade like a windows update when tit becomes available on July 29th.

Hopefuly this will be better than Windows 8 release, Microsoft still failing to realize that you can only make a first impression once after that we looking at awkward OS version numbering (e.g. 10.1).

About a month ago, power surge brought down my W08E10 environment. This weekend was finally able to assess the damage, it turns out 4 seagate hard drives were toasted which included both data drives and their backup. So that environment is gone for good but replacing hard drive and using current hardware to expand my W12E13 environment.

For this weekend’s project I decided to install Windows 10 Technical Preview Just to see how it looks and feel.

I know its just a Technical Preview but installation took over 2 hours, longest installation i have done since installation of Windows 3.11 over 20 years ago. Video to follow…
