July 29th, 2015 Windows 10 was officially released. For the first year, if at this time you own Windows versions 7 or 8, Microsoft will offer you an upgrade to Windows 10 free of charge. Some editions are excluded: Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise, and Windows RT/RT 8.1. If you are not eligible for this offer, Microsoft offers the possibility to obtain the newest.
Updates are always free as long as you own the device.
Microsoft announced that the release of Windows 10 will be deployed gradually in the form of waves, matter of making sure that everything goes as planned. So if you book your copy, when your turn comes , your current Windows will download Windows 10 and notify you when you can install it.
To reserve your free upgrade, download the application GET WINDOWS10 that you may find by clicking on the Windows icon found at the right in the taskbar. Next, click on Reserve your free upgrade in the application window. You must insert your email address to confirm your reservation. That’s it! In doing so, you are under no obligation and you may cancel your reservation at any time.
When your upgrade is ready, you will receive a notification from Microsoft. At this point, you may proceed with the installation at your convenience.
Note: A change in the operating system or a new version is a major change. We recommend that this operation be completed by an experienced Millenium Micro specialist.
You will quickly become an expert with the easy-to-use Windows 10. The software and devices that you already own are entirely compatible, and your applications and favourites will be automatically transferred. No action required. Also, the “Start” menu has been improved and the start-up is quicker with improved safety for your data.
There is a new browser with Windows 10, Microsoft Edge, which offers the best of the web. No more distractions as you browse online and easy access to your favourites.
Also, you will now be able to activate “Cortana”, the voice assistant for Windows Phone 8.1. It allows you access to functions without leaving your web page. Making reservations or consulting articles has never been easier.
Windows 10 responds to all your commands from your touchscreen, keyboard, and stylus.
The new quality applications include many maps, photos, messengers, calendars, music, and video that all use “One Drive” to save and synchronize on all your devices working with Windows 10.
For gamers, there will be the new DirectX 12 that adds a game DVR which allows you to record the last 30 seconds of your session in order to share them on social media.
Numerous functions will disappear with Windows 10, such as the “Media Center”. DVDs can no longer be played without using the “ Windows Store” to download a similar application or the classic VLC. Widgets such as the clock and weather can no longer be displayed on the desktop. Also, games such as Solitaire, Minesweeper, and Hearts as we know them will no longer exist. You will have to download new versions via the “Windows Store”.
USB floppy drives will also not be recognized by Windows 10. You will have to download the new drivers via “Windows Update”. The same goes for the application “One Drive” as well as “Windows Essentials”.

Note : If you possess an illegal (pirated) version of Windows 7 or 8, you may also upgrade to Windows 10 for free. However, this will not change your operating system’s license status. An illegal copy stays illegal even if upgraded. A non-original Windows copy is not certified by Microsoft and does not have a valid license and support from Microsoft is not available.
So, “hackers” who install Windows 10 will not benefit from Microsoft support, future possible additions reserved for paying customers, no access to technical support, etc.
However, Microsoft will offer owners of a pirated version a simple way to authenticate (and thus pay) for their copy through the Windows Store.
