Should you upgrade to Windows 10? How Microsoft’s OS could be good for you
Is Windows 10 for you? Well, there’s a better chance that it brings something to your life than not, whether you use a computer for 10 hours or 10 minutes a day.
The thing is, time is running out to upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10 for free. Specifically, you have until the end of today. It’s not a decision that you should simply gloss over, as the current price is around $120 (£100 or AUS$160). That’s enough for 10,000 penny sweets, and we’re particularly fond of the chewy fried egg ones.
I don’t know about you, but when I think about the burning core of my being, it’s in terms of being a bunch of easily-categorisable stereotypes. Which is handy, as it means I can make a purchasing decision entirely on the basis of said arbitrary categorisation. Am I a frequent flier, a parent, a gamer, or a paranoid survivalist hermit living in wildest Orkney? There’s a reason to own Windows 10 for all of you.
(Well, apart from the hermit, but then I’m frankly amazed he’s reading TechRadar rather than a 19th century almanac, or scrawling on his bathroom wall with turnip juice.) To see how Windows 10 will probably fit into your life, click (or tap) on ahead.
This article is part of TechRadar’s Windows 10 week. Microsoft’s latest operating system turns from a free to a paid upgrade on July 29, and we’re looking to answer the question of whether it’s good for you.
