Season's Greetings to you. Here in the Windows group, we've been working hard over the past couple months on getting people upgraded to Windows 10. With the release of Windows 10 in July and the update in November, we’re really happy about how it is coming together and the upgrade rate we’ve been seeing. We'd love to see every Windows user out there enjoying Windows 10. Since we released I've been getting tweets and emails from Windows Insiders who have been helping friends and family complete their upgrades.
One of my favorite stories came from Insider Joris Brauns in Antwerp. Joris knew his dad wanted to upgrade, but his dad felt more comfortable getting a little help. So when Joris was back at his parent’s house this past weekend, he upgraded his dad from Windows 7. "The most funny part was the moment when I was done installing Windows 10," Joris told us. "Our dog jumped on the table to take a peek!" And then he sent us the pix to prove it.
Joris, dad, and dog
Hey, Joris. Your dad – and your dog – do look happy. Thanks for telling us and for letting me share your upgrade story with our Insider community!
So, as many of you travel home for the holidays, you may end up helping friends and family complete their upgrades. When you do, we’d love to hear about it. Tell us your story – you can tweet to #Windows10 – and we might even compile a big picture collage with some of our favorite photos and stories.
I love these stories – not just because this is the season for sharing, but because it's great to see our Insiders wanting to share their Windows 10 excitement with friends and family ... and dogs.
Thanks again for being part of this awesome Insider community. Have a great holiday and a Happy New Year!
