Windows 10 release date announced

 Microsoft have announced the date for release of Windows 10.. It will be offered as a free upgrade to any Windows 7 or 8 users on the 29th of July. Something which has been the way of Apple’s OS X releases for a few years now. 

10 brings with it vast changes (some say improvements) from both 7 and 8. It also sees the return of a ‘pop up’ start menu, all be it with tiles most Windows 8 users will be familier with. 

All new machines will be bundled with Windows 10 from the 29th. With it expecting to hit mobile devices later on in the year. 

The free upgrade of 7 and 8 will hopefully reduce some of the fragmentation in the distribution of its OS user base. 

Will you be upgrading?

Well… Ok, it’s actually here…. That’s right, after what seems like months (really only weeks) of waiting, OS X Lion has just hit the download shelves of the Mac App Store!

OS X Lion boasts 250 new features, never before seen in any previous OS X version. Some of the main features include the LaunchPad, where iPad users will feel at home. Many new multi-touch gestures, the new file sharing technology called AirDrop – and many many more!

The download will cost a measly £25, and should be around 3.5GB. However, for those of you who would prefer assistance with your OS X upgrade, or who’s internet has download limits/is too slow you can (apparently) also visit your local Apple store and have then assist with the download/install. You may want to check with your local store first of all before packing up your things and heading over there

Using this link you should be whisked over to the Mac App Store, where you should find OS X Lion listed to buy/download.
