Today’s the big day! Windows 10 is now available as a free upgrade for consumers using Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Phone. Built from the ground up for a mobile-first, cloud-first world, Windows 10 enables people of action to do great things. It provides unparalleled productivity with the return of familiar features like the Start menu and new innovations like Microsoft Edge, Continuum andCortana, coming to Canada in the fall. Plus, Windows 10 will continuously update to keep your software current providing you with the best and safest experience possible.
To mark the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft announced that we will help 10 global and 100 local non-profits achieve greatness by investing more than $10 million in cash and technology. Today we’re announcing that we’re bringing the spirit of this campaign to Canada.
Is there a park or a community centre in your neighbourhood that needs a makeover? A local playground that needs new equipment? Do you have a friend, teacher or colleague who devotes themselves to making the world a better place? We want to hear about it.
Here’s how you get involved: Tweet @WindowsCanada or comment on Windows Canada Facebook using the hashtag #UpgradeYourWorld, and tell us about the people or groups in your community who are empowering others to do great things. Or join the conversation and tell us how you would upgrade your world. Over the coming months, Microsoft will bring a few of these suggestions to life.
We’re excited to hear from you and to bring Windows 10 and its many innovations to the world. Help us #UpgradeYourWorld.
