Windows 10 migration

Migration from Windows 7 to Windows 10 was a nice surprise.

Although it involved several reboots (up to five, if I remember well), it went smooth and it took a bit over an hour on a classic laptop computer. I did not have to backup anything previously, the migration process took care of everything. After the migration I found all my previous applications, I was able to recover my users, my wifi connection, my sound settings, all my bookmarks and all my playlists for windows media player. I even recovered my desktop and it's content, all my local drives and my network drives, as well as the antivirus settings. The only think I lost were the printer devices but this is maybe because at the migration time, they were not connected. I was able to add them later. I was able also to access the application store and install applications from the store.

The start menu is a mix with classic Windows 7 behavior extended with access to Window 8 type of screens. It is an excellent convergence choice of unifying multidevice menus. Concerning the login, user may choose between the Mirosoft account login or local user login, tough Microsoft account login may be necessary to access the application store.

Excellent stability so far as well.

Bottom line, all the migration process and the look and feel of the new OS with the convergent graphic interface, turned into a great user experience and was an excellent surprise. This OS is set to be a landmark for Windows operating systems.

I don't have information about the migration experience from Windows 8 but I can imagine should be similar. As for Windows 7 home and small business owners, I recommand the migration to the new OS. Companies may take into account additional drivers in the decision.
