Microsoft has taken a strategic step by introducing Windows 10 as a response to all the criticism the company has received regarding its other Windows operating system version (win 8). A company event in San Francisco announced a new version of Windows 8 that is numerically questionable. Microsoft made the free Windows 10 Technical Preview available to download shortly after announcing Windows 10 and discussing its features. Microsoft decided to make a preview of the upcoming Windows 10 work-ready right after it is installed because of the growing demands for missing features.

It shocked many when Microsoft stressed its latest release with a numerically questionable successor to the much excited Windows 9 or Threshold. A company representative says the new version of Windows includes all the old features and some special features to make it faster and more convenient to use. A further claim made by the company is that the Technical Preview is just an early build of what Windows 10 will become in the future. Windows 10 will be available with separate editions in mid-2015 since the current version is only a download and install version.
Describe the features and warnings in the Technical Preview package
• It’ll give a basis to the software that’s still in development, so it shouldn’t be considered a final product
• allows you to express your opinion and ask for changes or difficulties if necessary
• It is recommended that users be prepared for future updates or changes in UI design
• The early build is going to help you learn how to troubleshoot problems, back up data, format a hard drive, install an operating system, or, if necessary, restore your old operating system
• Install it on a test computer to check whether it might have some performance, function, or process-related issues yet to be discovered
It further stated that users, who think BIOS is a new form of plant fuel, should avoid installing Tech Preview because some uncertainties may arise. The minimum requirements for Win 10’s Tech Preview are the same as for every Windows OS:
• An Internet connection and a Microsoft account
• Display card: WDDM device with DirectX 9 support
• Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or higher
• 1 gigabyte (GB) of RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB of RAM (64-bit)
• 16 GB of free space on the hard drive
Make sure you understand what you will and will not have to reinstall once you upgrade to Windows 10 before you upgrade your device. Depending on which Windows version the operating system has been upgraded from, there may be a difference in support. In this list, we have listed some of the most commonly used Windows versions and what needs to be reinstalled:
• Users of Windows 8 or 8.1 and Windows 7 can keep their files, settings, and most installed applications
• The Technical Preview does not support Windows RT 8.1 or Windows RT, so users of those operating systems cannot enjoy using an early build of Windows 10.
• To install the Technical Preview on a PC running Windows Vista, it must be booted from the media and a clean install performed

Testing the early build should be quite straightforward because users are familiar with both the Windows 7 and Windows 8 beta builds.
