With Windows 10, Microsoft is trying to upgrade as many old computers as possible and make sure that operating systems such as Windows XP go dark at a much faster pace, and it appears that the company already has a plan in place for this objective.
A few days ago, Microsoft rolled out a dedicated tool that allows Windows 7 and 8 computers to upgrade to Windows 10 Technical Preview when the next build becomes available, and a similar solution is very likely to be offered once the stable version of the new OS comes out.
Windows XP computers, on the other hand, aren't getting a standalone tool to rapidly switch to Windows 10 Technical Preview, but according to Gabe Aul, head of the Windows Insider Program, that should be possible with the help of an ISO.
Basically, upgrades from previous OS versions to Windows 10 should be made as easily as possible in order to boot early adoption of the new operating system and Microsoft definitely wants to do this.
While deploying the Technical Preview is only possible via Windows Update for Windows Insider Program members, a similar solution is expected to be offered once Windows 10 hits the shelves, obviously in an attempt to bring more users from older OSes to the new product.
Windows XP customers are also expected to be provided with one quick way to deploy Windows 10, and a dedicated ISO that would make things faster and easier for everyone is clearly the best choice.
