Microsoft to Offer Direct Upgrades Only for Windows 7, 8.1 Users

3:25 PM
Windows Insider boss Gabriel Aul has just confirmed that full upgrade paths to Windows 10 would only be provided for Windows 7 and newer OS versions.In other words, customers who are still running Windows XP and Vista on their computers will have no other option to switch to Windows 10 than a full reinstall, which means that apps and settings will obviously be lost.

On the other hand, those on Windows 7 and Windows 8 will be able to preserve all of these, which is kind of great news for those who are waiting to get their hands on Windows 10 in mid-2015.Windows 10 is expected to come out in the second half of 2015, but more details on this release schedule are likely to be provided next month during an event focused on the consumer experience with the new operating system.
