Windows 10: To upgrade or not upgrade?

There is precious little time remaining to take advantage of Microsoft’s Windows 10 free upgrade programme. As July 29 approaches, so too does the deadline for those still on Windows 7 and 8 to upgrade at no cost. Making the move will not only save you money, but Windows 10 represents a stable, mature and above all, better experience than anything which has come before.

Long accepted as a great way of enhancing productivity and performance with ‘round the clock’ efficiency, there is an increasingly wide array of automation opportunities for the everyday office.

These days, robots are responsible for 10 percent of manufacturing tasks and it’s growing all the time. By 2025, it will be 25 percent, according to a Boston Consulting Group study.
