Microsoft says Windows 10 is "familiar"


The Windows 10 ad campaign has begun, with Microsoft again telling potential users that the OS is "familiar" to both Window 7 and Windows 8 users and brings back the much loved start menu. 


Discover why Windows 10 is the best combination of the Windows you already know, plus lots of great improvements you’ll love having. And all of your stuff comes with you, so you’ll be ready to do great things from the get-go. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/window...



With Windows 10 coming a in less than 10 days, i have been flooded by messages from most of my friends and family asking whether or not they should upgrade, with their main concern being whether or not the OS is as easy to use as their current OS.

Being a long time user of the Windows 10 beta, or insider program, I was able to tell them all that it operated in a very similar way to what they were all used too, though I was able to tell Windows 8 users that they no longer had to deal with the whole "Metro UI" nonsense and again had a start menu. Windows 10 feels a lot like Windows 7, but with the much newer and more refined look of Windows 8.1.  

Windows 10 will launch on July 29th and will be available as a free upgrade to both Windows 7 and Windows 8 users if you upgrade in the first year of the new OS's lifecycle.

Began doesn't sound right, Is that correct ? Thought it was "Has begun".

Wonderful English language, So many strange words

Looking forward to W10 Quote
