Windows 10 Out Now
"Microsoft gets it right."
The day has arrived. Windows 10, Microsoft's latest operating system and the follow-up to the controversial Windows 8 (there was no Windows 9), launched on Wednesday--and you can probably get it for free.
GameSpot sister site CNET has a full review of Windows 10. Editor Nate Ralph wrote, "Microsoft gets it right."
"Windows 10 delivers a refined, vastly improved vision for the future of computing with an operating system that's equally at home on tablets and traditional PCs," he said.
As part of a special offer, Windows 7 and 8 users can upgrade to Windows 10 for free for the first year after launch. In other Windows 10 gaming news, Microsoft recently published a set of instructions for how PC owners can start playing the "whole new" version of Minecraft for Windows 10 starting today.

Windows 10 features an all-new Xbox gaming app, Cortana integration, and a new browser called Edge. These are just some of the changes; be sure to read CNET's full review for everything you need to know.
Windows 8, released in October 2012, was controversial in part because of its touch-focused tile design that was dramatically different to Windows 7. Microsoft addressed these criticisms with frequent--and substantial updates--including Windows 8.1. The company isn't starting over with Windows 10, but Microsoft appears to be taking a more measured approach with its latest OS.
