Is it Worth It to Switch to Windows 10?Windows was once the operating system that everyone knew and loved. There were other operating systems on the market, but this one was, by far, the most engaging one because it was simple. The system would remain dominant for decades up until the upgrades would drastically change. Windows is still the operating systems that everyone knows, but it may not be the operating system that everyone loves anymore. Some people may even be wondering if it worth their time and effort to change.
There are many things to weigh, but the Windows 10 is worth it. The biggest reason has to do with the cost. For those that have a licensed version of Windows 7 or Windows 8 the new operating systems is free. This is the first time in the history of Microsoft that a full free version (that is not a beta test OS) has been given to customers. This may be limited time thing so that is all the more reason to take advantage of this. What is means for customers is that they get a chance to finally save money on the operating systems that have become increasing expensive over the years. Even with a free OS out there some customers are still wondering if it worth the time it takes to upgrade. The not-so-obvious answer for this is also yes. Windows 8 was fast. Windows 10 is faster. The missing start button that many people lamented about with the first edition of Windows 8 is back. Many people still are holding on to Windows 7, but Windows 10 is better.
Most people that have installed Windows 10 will tell other PC users that this is a combination of Windows 7 and Windows 8. The Start screen is optional on this new version of Windows. If people want it they can turn it on, but it isn't required. The interface is also much better looking for Windows 10. It just appears to be a lot neater than the prototype that Windows 8 turned out to be. There are some good features about Windows 8, but it was too new for most people. It was total upgrade from Windows 7. Even with the Windows 8.1 update there were still quite a few bugs to work out. It took a new OS - Windows 10 - to really allow Microsoft to handle the tremendous amount of feedback that consumers gave. It appears that developers have listened and made some good decisions to implement some new things and keep some of the beloved older features. What Windows 10 does is give users options without making everything mandatory.
The thing that will make Windows 10 the most attractive to the millions of Windows 7 users is the option to skip to middle upgrade to Windows 8. There is no need for this because users can upgrade and hop right from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
Another thing that is big in the Windows 10 operating system is the security. There is a Windows Hello feature that increases security at login with bio metrics. The browser also has increased security. There are remote wipe options in place with Windows 10. These are features that few people may have thought of back when Windows 7 was arriving in stores. It just shows that Microsoft is setting a new standard with the arrival of Windows 10. Anyone that has been watching the Microsoft franchise knows that this company has struggled in the lasted several years. Windows 10 is a noteworthy attempt to return to grace. Software users will be pleased with this upgrade.
