Some Windows users are still waiting to receive their Windows 10 updates, others, such as Sony Vaio users, have been advised to hold-off upgrading due to driver glitches. Sony reports that Vaio users can expect to receive updated drivers between August and November.
Most other users may upgrade to Windows 10 at any time. The Inquisitr previously reported on how Windows 7 and 8.1 users may download the free operating system upgrade using the Microsoft Media Creation Tool. Make sure to backup important files and set aside several hours when installing Windows 10.
On August 10, Microsoft released its new Windows 10 IoT Core for Raspberry Pi and MinnowBoard Max. The Windows 10 IoT Core allows developers to design applications for a variety of uses, ranging from monitoring weather stations to robots, drones and air hockey. Microsoft is encouraging developers to create innovative device designs.
There is an seemingly endless array of possible applications: the Windows 10 IoT Core provides a wide-open field for newcomers to design a possible next-big-thing type of device or software.
