Why should I upgrade?
You should upgrade to Windows 10 so that your devices can continue to provide you with a productive and enjoyable tech experience. Some of the major changes include:

· Cortana: The world’s most personal digital assistant is now available across your Windows devices with the upgrade. On your computer she can find your files, send your emails, answer your questions, and more.

· Xbox Integration: With Xbox Live built into Windows 10, you can game with more people, from more places, across devices
· Windows Hello: A new feature that allows you login securely with a look or a touch—no password needed again!
How long is the wait to upgrade?
With millions of reservations and Windows Insiders to serve, we want to make sure everyone has a great upgrade experience, so we’re rolling out Windows 10 in phases to help manage the demand. We are rolling out Windows 10 to our Windows Insiders. From there, we will notify reserved systems in waves, slowly scaling up. Upon reserving your upgrade, we will notify you once our compatibility work confirms you will have a great experience and Windows 10 has been downloaded on your system.
If I don’t like the new version can I go back? If so is that a difficult process?
Yes, while we think you’ll love all the features of Windows 10, you will have one month after upgrading to revert back to the previous version of Windows on your device—it will be a simple process to revert back.
