Windows 10 Upgrade Free?!

You betcha! According to the Microsoft Windows Blog, Windows 10 will launch this summer in 190 countries and in 111 languages. If you are currently running Windows 7 or newer, you will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free. Once upgraded they will keep Windows 10 current for the lifetime of the device. An older post told about the possibility of Windows 10 being free. It has since been confirmed by Microsoft.

Windows Hello
In an attempt to make Windows 10 more personal, Microsoft is introducing Windows Hello. So what is it? It’s biometric authentication. This will provide you with instant access to all your Windows 10 devices. Show your face or touch your finger to devices running Windows 10 and you will be instantly recognized. They say this is more secure than a password. If you currently have a device that has a fingerprint reader, you should be able to use Windows Hello to unlock the device. For facial or iris detection, it will be able to tell if it’s really you or a picture of you through infrared technology.
