Windows 10 has made everything better. It’s faster, smoother, and the tiled interface no longer monopolizes the system. It works great for desktops, laptops, and tablets. There are more in-depth features for power users, but it’s better at ordinary tasks, too. Fulcrum Group’s own Tyson Rasanen discussed his thoughts on Windows 10 in a previous newsletter, “The biggest plus to my update was that it was shockingly smooth! I didn’t experience a single problem with my existing apps migrating over – even updating the video drivers. The upgrader will tell you ahead of time if you have any apps that aren’t compatible, so the most laborious effort I had to make was pressing the go button for rebooting, twice.”
Windows 7 is a reliable workhorse operating system for many organizations, but there are some vital reasons Microsoft wants to get everyone updated to the latest version of the software. Security tops that list, but there’s also the challenge of supporting thousands of different types of computers across different operating systems written years and years ago.
For some there are reasons you may want to more carefully consider your Windows 10 migration.
