After the disaster that was Windows 8, many lawyers are hesitant to upgrade to Windows 10. But for those of you with Microsoft operating systems, the change is likely inevitable. Furthermore, Windows 10 has a free upgrade for a year! So what do lawyers need to know about the new OS? Are rumors of high bandwidth use and computer sharing true?

In this episode of The Digital Edge, Sharon Nelson and Jim Calloway interview technologist and Microsoft expert Ben Schorr about the price, benefits, and downfalls of Windows 10 and what lawyers specifically need to know.

Topics Include:

  • What happened to Windows 9
  • The start menu and live tiles on desktops without touch screens
  • Microsoft Edge versus Internet Explorer
  • The quality of Cortana
  • Rumors of peer-to-peer networks and bandwidth use
  • New and existing hardware and software compatibility
  • Whether lawyers should download the operating system and when
  • How much Windows 10 costs
