So I fired up my PC when I got home from work and checked my notifications, to find Windows 10 was on its way. This was all rather exciting, I could hear the voices in my head :
“Hurry up and get it installed“.
However the voices on Twitter were a different matter :
“No no no“.
“Insane in the membrane”
“You must be marbles and conkers“.
However I resisted the urge to stop the update, again my own voices speaking, although at times conflicting :
“One Windows to rule them all“.
“My precious, my precious“.
“Turn back Dick Whittngton“.
“Umm I think you’re confusing stories now and need to stop this!”
Eventually, files had been downloaded, updates had been run, apps had been configured, settings had been configured and I logged in.
Hurrah! Success. Now I should say at this point that this is not my suggested method of upgrading an operating system. I’m a big fan of the clean install. However I decided to let the Microsoft process do its work and I was rather impressed to discover that the apps I largely use seem to be working fine, without any need to reinstall them.
