What You Need to Know About Windows 8 and 10

Windows 8 is basically Windows 7 with the "Metro" user interface added on top of the desktop to make it suitable for mobile devices. However, these changes make Windows 8 very difficult to use on a desktop and is therefore not a recommended upgrade. The "guts" of Windows 8 is basically unchanged from Windows 7, so any software that runs on Windows 7 (including ours) should work fine on Windows 8.

Windows 10 is basically Windows 8 with some usability enhancements.
