July 29th-Windows vs OS X-Be There!

So let’s get ready to rumble as we did in 1995, when Windows 95 went up against System 7. 

Now the odds look in Apple’s favor. Apple has sold more desktop computers than Windows has as of late.

Microsoft has announced that Wednesday, July 29th, marks the beginning of retail sales for Windows 10. The Home version will cost $119 and the Pro version will cost $199. If you buy the Home version and want to go to Pro, that’ll cost you $99. 

Now Microsoft has announced that current users of Windows 7 and 8.1 (for which I have valid licenses) will get a notification to reserve their copy of Windows 10. So far, nothing on the TaskBar. But I recall it took Apple awhile to get around to me for the Public Beta tester program. Never fear, I will give you reports on how Windows 10 looks and works as compared to OS X 10.10.4

Getting back to Apple, I expect my productivity to decline a bit while I sneak looks at live coverage of the WWDC keynote speech. I’m not looking for new features as much as I’d like serious bug squashing and security vulnerabilities fixed. It took 10.10 until 10.10.3 to really solve the problems I’ve experienced with it. 

I lack a crystal ball to look into the future, so for the best informed speculation turn to this article at Macworld UK. They even think they know what the name will be.
