Cheat sheet: Windows 10 (free PDF)
This comprehensive guide covers must-know Windows 10 details including features, system requirements, upgrade options, and Microsoft’s Windows-as-a-service strategy.
Like a Swiss Army Knife, Windows 10 was designed to do just about everything for everyone…or at least that’s Microsoft’s hope. It’s built to provide a unified operating system that can run across multiple platforms, such as PCs, tablets, and smartphones. It’s also designed to provide PC users with a more traditional Windows experience compared to Windows 8’s touch-centric UI, something Microsoft hopes will win over long-time Windows users and many IT departments that skipped Windows 8. Lastly, Windows 10 marks the beginning of Microsoft’s new Windows-as-a-service strategy, which could signal the end of numbered Windows releases.
To help IT leaders quickly get up to speed on Windows 10, we compiled the most important details and related resources on Microsoft’s latest operating system into this free PDF guide, which we’ll periodically update as new information becomes available.
