Ars Technica reviews Windows 10 →

July 29, 2015 |

Windows 10 was released worldwide today, and Peter Bright has already penned a great review of it over at Ars Technica:

I’m more conflicted about Windows 10 than I have been about any previous version of Windows. In some ways, the operating system is extremely ambitious; in others, it represents a great loss of ambition. The new release tries to walk an unsteady path between being Microsoft’s most progressive, forward-looking release and simultaneously appealing to Windows’ most conservative users.

And it mostly succeeds, making this the best version of Windows yet—once everything’s working. In its current form, the operating system doesn’t feel quite finished, and I’d wait a few weeks before making the leap.

Despite the initial bugs, which are always to be expected, it seems like a solid update for Windows users. It also happens to be the first free version of Windows, so this is great news for consumers.
