This is something Microsoft ALWAYS gets right.
No matter what your thoughts are about Windows – if you are not in awe, shush, and go to a lower table! – you cannot deny that Microsoft has made device discovery, and driver coverage an almost no-brainer.
Windows 10, now in the Anniversary Edition build, is the first version in ages designed expressly for upgrades, which traditionally, have been for a small section of Windows users.
I have been able to upgrade several gen systems to Windows 10 without difficulty, including several PCs which had been mothballed.
For small businesses on shoestrings or constrained budgets, this is a very good thing. Since they can leverage their current resources to being productive until budgets allow.
It is also very astute, as it removes a potential roadblock to upgrading to Windows 10.
