I can’t remember the last time I was excited for a Windows update! I have actually been using Mac laptops exclusively for the past 3 years or so. The reason being is after having used Android on all my phones windows was beginning to seem antiquated, and I really felt like I needed something that would be more aesthetically pleasing. Mac OS seemed to do the trick for me. Once I figured out that I could still do most of my Android hacking with a mac I have not really looked back. The other day when the LG G4 root method came out, I had to dust off my old Windows 7 PC. When I booted it up I remembered why I had left Windows in the first place. Everything was slow and I kept getting random errors. I was unable to complete the task at hand.

The PC is old and needs replacing, it probably isn’t really Window’s fault. Looking at new laptops has made me pretty excited for Windows again. The new Windows 10 is a free upgrade! If you are looking to give it a shot there are a few things you will need to know.

There are a few requirements for installing Windows 10. You will need to be running the latest update of the current version you are on whether that be Windows7 or Windows8. You will need to be running a cpu that is clocked to at least 1Ghz. You will need to have at least 1GB of ram and 16GB of hard drive space for 32bit and 2GB of ram with 32GB of hard drive space for 64bit. You will need a Direct9x or higher graphics card, and your display should be at least 800×600. Most modern PCs from the last few years will support Windows 10.

You can use the Windows 10 update tool to install the update, or you can install it manually. To install manually grab a usb thumb drive, head to the download page to grab either the home or pro version of Windows 10, pick your language. Once the download completes you will be walked through how to set up the ISO on your thumbdrive. You can then install the update and it should walk you through the process.

A few features that are included in Windows 10 worth getting excited over are the new start button, the edge browser will be like explorer but rebuilt from the ground up, Cortana (microsoft’s version of Google Now) is included, Continuum Mode allows you to switch between desktop and tablet modes, and more! Microsoft 10 is free for one year from yesterday’s date. After the first year is up the update will set you back a few bucks. If you need a full and comprehensive install guide head to the source link below.
