Windows 10 is here. Available to the general public starting July 29th, Windows 10 is a much needed upgrade over Windows 8. Laptop Mag put together an incredible in-depth breakdown of almost every facet of both operating system, and grading them on a 100 point scale. Their winner? Windows 10.

From the showdown's author, Mark Spoonauer:

Microsoft's new OS makes it easier to multitask compared to OS X, and it's more dynamic and personal without being overwhelming. Even if you don't like the idea of talking to your PC, Cortana is a very useful assistant, whether you want to set reminders, compose emails, search or just see who won the game without Web surfing. I also prefer Windows 10's Task View to OS X's Mission Control, because you can close apps using the former.

For the full battle, be sure to check out the full breakdown over at If you're a PC user, are you planning on upgrading to Windows 10? If you're a Mac user, what do you think of the showdown's results? Let us know in the comments! In the meantime, while the Connectedly team has primarily been a bunch of Mac users as of late, we're going to dig up our Surface Pro 3 and do the upgrade today.
