With Windows 10 just around the corner, here are some practical resources to help you get prepared.

Firstly, I would encourage you to sign up to join the Windows Insider Program, which is a program that allows you to preview Windows 10 and give your feedback on it before its too late! If you are computer savvy you can install it on a spare machine and start using it, the program details can be found here.

Read about the direction that Microsoft is taking with Windows 10 and integration of Cloud services, particularly around Active Directory and Azure. The Windows for Business blog can be found here.

There is going to be the inevitable question ‘Why should I move to Windows 10?’. Here’s my take on it:

  • More secure and easier to keep that way
  • New browser that catches up with Apple
  • Better touch screen / tablet support
  • Best platform to run the new version of Office on

With every rollout of a new operating system we take a cautious approach to deployment, whilst it is exciting to get new technology rolled out, first and foremost we need to make sure your line of business applications will work with it as well as printers and other devices.

I have Windows 10 on my travel laptop, and to date, this experience has been very positive.
