If you’re still on Windows 7 and you’ve already vowed not to upgrade to Windows 10, it’s probably because Microsoft broke everyone’s heart with Windows 8 and you’re still disappointed. Well, it’s understandable and no one is going to blame you, but should you really be stuck in the past? Is this not the right time to move on?
Windows 10 is here and it seems people love it. Microsoft tried as much as possible to make up for the sins committed with Windows 8 like the removal of our beloved start button. The world has already moved on and Windows 10 adoption rate proves this. Just two days after the OS was released, Microsoft said it was already installed on over 14 million devices. You can try to guess the count from then till now.
If you’re still using Windows 8.1 or earlier, these are reasons you should upgrade as soon as possible.
1. The start button and start menu
Windows 8 removed this and everyone went crazy. The start button came back with Windows 8.1 but you still have to go back to the start screen every time you click that button. Windows 10 has it now and it looks more like what everyone is used to.
The only thing missing in the start menu is the search function but it’s located somewhere else. Cortana has it and it’ll only be redundant putting it here, I guess. It’s only a click away from here.
2. You now have a cute personal assistant
We all know how easy it is to get carried away while working on your computer. It you’ve been using Siri on your iPhone or Google Now on your Android device, you will definitely appreciate Cortana.
3. It feels like Windows XP + Windows 7 + Windows 8
Windows 10 user interface may look all new and shiny but there are things familiar about it. Getting used to Windows 8 wasn’t easy. Honestly, I had a hard time trying to shut down the computer for the first time.
Windows 10 seems to combine the best features from previous Microsoft operating systems. While it looks new, you won’t find it hard getting used to it.
4. Action Center
I’m sure you have a smartphone and that smartphone has a Notification center you can pull down by swiping down from the status bar. The Action Center on Windows 10 feels just like the Notification center on your smartphone.
