The Pirates are one step closer to the Treasure's Chest. Windows 10 Free Upgrade marks the spot.
Microsoft is revamping Windows. It’s newest armored ship of the Windows operating system launches on water tomorrow. 29 July is marked on many calendars across the globe. Given that it’s the first time Microsoft is making a major release a free upgrade, it’s quite interesting! There’s a catch though. All genuine captains of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 ships are eligible for the free upgrade for up to a year.
According to Microsoft, the Windows 10 navy system will be available as a free upgrade for qualified ships running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. Yes, for free!
You may be desperate to claim something that is available for ‘free’ on the first day itself. And you need to decide whether or not you want to. The launch day is tomorrow. But you might just want to wait it out.
Before you decide to go in stranger tides it’s important to understand the real deal behind Windows 10 treasure island.
Check your pirate ship's specifications
If you decide to not wait it out and opt-in for the upgrade, you will need to ensure that you run the latest update of the operating system. If you run Windows 7, then you should have installed SP1. If you haven’t, you can download it here. Similarly, if you are on Windows 8 ship, then the Windows 8.1 update is a must to be eligible for the upgrade to Windows 10 navy.
The minimum hardware specifications to run in Windows 10 navy are as follows:
Rudder: 1 Gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC
RAM Cannons: 1 Gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
Hold space: 16 GB for 32-bit OS or 20 GB for 64-bit OS
Ship sails: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
Pirate flag: 1024×600
Points worth pondering over
Several pirate parrots are complaining about device drivers not functioning properly. Given that Windows 10 is a completely new product, there would be instances of compatibility errors with your existing software suites. If any of these are commercial licences such as the Adobe Creative Suite, Tally, CAD or any specialised software suite which you are heavily dependent on for work, you might want to wait it out before you upgrade.
Also, ship captains with Nvidia graphic cards have shared updates about how devices drivers seem to be buggy with Windows 10. It’s advisable to wait it out before the usual bugs are ironed out in updates.
