Jul 23 2015
This week, it was brought to my attention that The City of Trail in British Columbia had posted a series of YouTube "How-To" videos for their citizens to follow.

More specifically it is free to anyone who is currently running Windows version 7 or 8, but there is a catch. For this upgrade to be free you must install and update your computer to Windows 10 within one year from the July 29, 2015 release date.
