There's been lots of news recently about the Windows 10 preview and what's ahead for Windows 10 this year. We're looking forward to what's new and are excited about what Windows 10 might bring.

I'm also seeing more posts come up about Stardock apps and Windows 10 that I wanted to address.

  • Windows 10 Preview is just that....a preview and not the final product build.  
     
  • While many Stardock apps work just fine on the Windows 10 preview, when new Windows 10 builds are updated there's a good chance something might break.  That is why apps are not officially supported on Windows 10 right now.
     
  • We are looking at the feedback in regards to Windows 10 and Stardock apps.  

As soon as we have updates we'll share them, and I can say we have some cool stuff to look forward to.  If you have feedback on Windows 10 and what you might like to see improved, please feel free to comment in this post. :)
