Microsoft has surprised industry observers by announcing the next version of its mainstream operating system will be called Windows 10, and a technical preview will be available to download from October 1.

Announcing the platform at an event in San Francisco, Microsoft said that Windows 10 represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows. It will also run across an incredibly broad set of devices, from the Internet of Things to servers in enterprise data centres, on devices with 4in screens to 80in screens, and some that won't have screens at all.

Starting October 1, Microsoft is to open up the Windows Insider Programme, making available a technical preview of Windows 10 for participants.

If you got Win 7 then my advice would be stick with it unless you use a KVM switch and are fed up with the resolution not rendering correctly (fixed in 8 & 10).

Win 10 basically has a reduced tile I/F that is added to a new look 'traditional' start menu instead of both being separate as per 8.1. The chimes menus have all disappeared but whether this is just until testing is done or not is currently an unknown.

IMHO, for what it's worth, (not a lot) Win 10 is just a extension of 8.1 with more features (programs start menu) added to the 'compromise' start menu that returned in that release.

For my touch devices I'll be inclined to stick with 8.1 unless there are some major changes before the final version of 10 goes live.

I will say in its favour however, it's the fastest booting Windows OS ever but again that may be because it's in preview.
