To upgrade or not to upgrade

For the present Cloud Nine advises all users NOT to upgrade to Windows 10, this is to allow time for bugs to be patched by Microsoft and so we can roll out in a controlled manner.

One possible concern for those moving up to Windows 10, especially from older versions of Windows, is whether their important applications will work on the new OS. For major software releases this will almost certainly be a smooth upgrade, but it’s worth checking with the software provider, as they may still be working on a new version. You don’t want to upgrade and suddenly find you can’t do your normal work on your PC. The same holds true for peripherals such as printers and scanners, which may require the downloading of new drivers to ensure they work properly on the new platform.

Get in touch if you want to discuss this further or indeed schedule a rollout for your own organisation.

Licensing

Current users of Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for no cost. Microsoft says that this will be a limited time offer that will run for one year (so July 2016).
