Upgrading To Windows 10? You may want to reconsider.

Microsoft Windows 10If you don’t currently have Windows 10, you are likely getting pop-ups urging you to upgrade. However, you may want to think twice before you do. Unfortunately, in the short time it’s been available, it has shown itself to be simply not the best option for everyone. If you’re system is currently running Windows 8/8.1, you may be able to make the transition with only minor headaches… Maybe. But if your system is currently running Windows 7, upgrading to Window’s 10 will probably end up being way more trouble than it’s worth.

One of the features of Windows 10 that has proven problematic is the automatic updates. Windows 10 is new, and part of being new is being imperfect. The automatic updates are designed to remedy these imperfections as they make themselves apparent. The problem with these automatic updates is that they have been known to lead to more problems.

Many computers simply will not support Windows 10. Period. Windows 10 is not certified by manufacturers for all computers. In these cases the devices do not have the capability to run Windows 10 to the desired effect, if at all.

Of course, for some, upgrading to Windows 10 will be relatively smooth. However, it is important to consider all that has been mentioned before taking the plunge. It might be best to simply wait until the next version of Windows comes out. As of yet, when it comes to Windows 10 the old adage seems to ring true in many cases: If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.
