Moving from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 with a Simple Update

Moving from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 with a Simple Update

Despite a forecast of heavy snow, the inaugural Day 1 of MMS Minnesota kicked off. The event, held at the Radisson Blu at the Mall of America is heavy on tech and seeded by MVP and Microsoft heavyweights. You can catch the commentary and real-time telemetry through Twitter by following the #mmsminnesota hashtag this week.

During his session today, Michael Niehaus has delivered some information that will be interesting to most of you, and primarily those wondering about options for update to Windows 10 once it releases publicly. Attendee Daniel Ratliff captured the moment on Twitter today, showing how migrating from Windows 7 or Windows 8 will require an in-place upgrade, but those moving from Windows 8.1 will only need to apply an update from Microsoft.

So, for those that chose to utilize Windows 8.1 in their environment, there is a sort of reward in that the upgrade will be quick and simple. For those migrating from Windows 7 or Windows 8, the upgrade will take a bit more time, effort, and planning.
