Microsoft starts the countdown to Windows 10 release with '10 reasons to upgrade'

Microsoft is gearing up for the launch of Windows 10 and while the OS is nearly ready, it's time for the marketing team to take over and starting pushing the new OS (and brand) to consumers. In an effort to help convince you to upgrade, the company has released the first video in what appears to be a series that highlights 10 reasons to install Windows 10.

For Microsoft, this is the start of the countdown to Windows 10 launch as we are now ten days away and this video is titled "10 Reasons to Upgrade to Windows 10: IT’S FAMILIAR".

The theme of this video is that the OS is familiar, a contrast to the complaints about Windows 8 and the missing Start button when the OS launched back in 2012. Also, Microsoft is pushing that Windows 10 is the best of Windows 7 and 8.

You can watch the clip above and seeing as it's 46 seconds in length, it doesn't seem like this one is going to make it to the cable networks as those advertisements are typically 30 or 60 seconds in length; but anything is possible.
