Windows 10 was released to the public four weeks ago today. With its new policy of offering the latest version of Windows as a free upgrade to anyone running Windows 7/8/8.1, Microsoft wants everyone using Windows to be running Windows 10. So far, it looks like their plan is working, with Windows 10 running 75 million devices across 90,000 individual PC and tablet models.
If you run Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1, chances are you’ve seen a little Windows logo (pictured at right) pop up in your task bar recently. Clicking it will allow you to upgrade to Windows 10 without having to wipe your hard drive or reinstall all of your programs. The first question is, should you do it? And the second question is, will RESUMate work after you do?
The answer to the first questions is entirely up to you. There are a lot of guides out there about whether or not you should take Microsoft up on their free upgrade offer. If you’re on the fence about upgrading, try reading one or more of these:
What can be said for sure is that, one month after release, Windows 10 has not suffered any of the massive technical problems that crippled Windows Vista, nor has it infuriated desktop users with a confusing new interface like Windows 8. Indeed, from a technical standpoint, the Windows 10 upgrade has been remarkably free of problems. Sure, some PCs will experience issues, and some programs might need to be reinstalled, but at this point it’s safe to say that Windows 10 doesn’t have any debilitating flaws the way so many past Windows versions did.
Happily, that includes RESUMate. Upgrading from both Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 to Windows 10 should not affect RESUMate at all, and RESUMate 15 runs perfectly in Windows 10. We have had a few people report the need to reinstall RESUMate after the upgrade, but most computers (including ours here at the office) upgraded with no problem and didn’t need RESUMate to be reinstalled.
In conclusion, RESUMate runs fine on Windows 10, and if you upgrade to Windows 10, your copy of RESUMate will continue to work. Whether or not you want to upgrade in the first place is up to you, but here at RESUMate, Inc., we’ve been using Windows 10 for a month and so far it’s a marked improvement over both Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1.
