Why should one upgrade one’s computer to Windows 10? Here are a few effect arguments that make the latest operating system from Microsoft, the best option for your PC’s and your business.
You might’ve been wondering for a while now about whether you should upgrade to Windows 10, the latest operating system from Microsoft. Older users – i.e, Windows 7/8/8.1 users could upgrade to Windows 10 for free in the first year of its availability (till July 2016). Now upgrading to Windows 10 will cost you a few hundred dollars! There’s no point crying over missing the boat with the free offer.
The most secure Windows
As Windows 10 is the most recent operating system from Microsoft, it receives lots of regular updates, thus boosting Windows 10’s security aspects. Though you can never be sure and nothing’s ever 100% secure, your best bet currently is Windows 10. With cyber-attacks getting scarier by the day, having the latest and most secure version of Windows is the safest option you may have.
The global ransomware attacks that the world witnessed in recent years bear witness to this. These ransomware locked you out, preventing access to private documents and precious photos. Compared to the ransom to regain access to your files, the price for windows is a worthwhile price to pay for prevention.
A faster OS
Windows 10 brings several performance improvements that make your PC function better.
- It’s more efficient overall, that means laptop batteries will last longer when they’re unplugged.
- Waking up from sleep mode has gotten faster so that you don’t have to idle quite so long as you used to.
- Its new inbuilt web browser, Microsoft Edge, is considerably faster and secure as well.
Optimized for newer hardware
PCs that run Windows 10 are capable of a wide range of exciting functions.
Windows 10 is the best way to take advantage of the very latest in graphics technology. If you work on graphics/multimedia or enjoy games on your PC, you will be missing out on a lot.
Some newer hardware is designed to work only with Windows 10, such as virtual reality headsets. Although not popular yet, virtual reality is the future and could change the way we use PCs.
Never buy Windows ever again
Microsoft promoted Windows 10 as the ‘last version’ when it was introduced, meaning no possibility of ever releasing Windows 11 or beyond. Instead, they chose to keep rolling out updated versions of Windows 10 as the Fall Creators Update in 2017. This translates into you never having to pay for Windows again.
However, its best to take this with a pinch of salt – companies do tend to reverse decisions. So maybe some years down the line Microsoft could decide to introduce a new version of Windows 10 and make you pay up. But for the near future, the company seems content to keep Windows 10 rolling.
Be it new features or the very best safety measures, there are several reasons why the money spent on a Windows upgrade may be the best option to get the most from your PC and protect it.
