Windows 10 review: the best of Windows 7 and 8

Windows 10 is the ideal next step for Microsoft, bringing together the best elements of Windows 7 and 8. With new features like Cortana and Edge, extensive desktop interface refinements and Microsoft's free upgrade offer, it's a must-have for anyone who uses Windows.

Pros
  • Brings together Microsoft's best desktop and touchscreen interfaces
  • Easy upgrade process
  • Cortana and Edge alone are worth upgrading
  • Changes to modern Windows apps finally makes them useful
Cons
  • No major changes beyond the traditional Windows desktop
  • Xbox One game streaming requires a robust network
  • Still not many worthwhile modern Windows apps yet
