Important Notice - Please read
Microsoft continues to encourage people to move to Windows 10 through pop-up offers for the free upgrade. In light of this offer it is important for you to understand that presently none of the University’s major software vendors have issued a certification for their systems supporting Windows 10.
IS&T is presently performing an analysis of Windows 10 to fully test this operating system as well as its integration to existing University systems.
IS&T strongly recommends that until vendors certify Windows 10 and IS&T has completed its testing, that you do not upgrade any university pc’s or laptops to Windows 10 at this time. IS&T will announce the support of the Windows 10 operating system when it has been fully tested and compliant with all of the university systems.
Your cooperation is appreciated.
