Windows 10 is here Putting an end to older operating systems

Just a reminder that Windows 10 is here and you have until July 29th to receive it as a free upgrade from Microsoft.  After that date, the upgrade will cost $99.

Windows XP Service Pack 3 April 14, 2009 April 8, 2014
Windows Vista Service Pack 2 April 10, 2012 April 11, 2017

IT360 has been testing the upgrade process and so far it has been going well.  We know that it isn’t going to work for every business environment.  If you would like to see if your business should upgrade to Windows 10, contact our office.  Our upgrade process includes testing a few machines in each of your departments on Windows 10.  This is to make sure all of your applications and programs work correctly.  Once testing is completed, we can determine whether to move forward for the rest of the business.  Some training of your staff may be required as the look and feel is somewhat different than Windows 7.  Once it has been determined to upgrade all of the machines, we can schedule this to be done over the weekend or during off hours.  This service is included for our Managed IT Service clients.
