I’m a former Microsoft MVP for Windows and have been writing about Microsoft Operating Systems since 2007.
I started this site for one simple reason – I wanted to create a free resource that would help people understand what Windows 10 is.
You see Windows 10 is the most comprehensive update that Microsoft have ever made to their Windows Operating Systems.
Unlike Windows 7,8 or 8.1, there’s a lot more at stake with this release. I know because I wrote a best selling book about Windows 10 and some of the changes that are coming.
This section is my attempt to guide you through and help you figure out what parts of the site you might want to check out first.
Now this next part is important: sign up for our Windows 10 Newsletter.
I use the newsletter to keep you informed about the latest Windows 10 News and Updates on a regular basis.
OK, so enough housekeeping, let’s get started.
