The long-awaited release of Windows 10 has finally arrived and by most accounts, it’s the operating system that Microsoft needed to deliver after the mixed reception to its predecessor Windows 8. Considering the fact that Microsoft is offering their new OS to any consumer currently using Windows 7 or 8, it’s a very tempting proposition to upgrade immediately. That being said, before diving headfirst into the next generation of Windows, you may want to consider holding off for a bit. While Windows 10 will be an essential upgrade for most users (especially if you’re rocking Windows 8), there are benefits to waiting to install it. We’ve outlined some of the best pros and cons for switiching to Windows 10 right now and the decision isn’t as simple as you may think. That being said, whichever route you take, you will have made a wise choice.
The 5 Best Reasons To Upgrade Right Now
Pro #5. Better User Interface
One of the most common complaints about Windows 8 was its tile interface, which was too much of a change from the traditional Window’s Start menu and added little benefit to the OS’s functionality. Windows 10 puts the Start menu back where it belongs and integrates the tile interface much more effectively into the overall design, resulting in a “best of both worlds” situation. However, if you’re upgrading from Windows 7, you might still have to get used to the tiles, but this is great news for Windows 8 users who have had to suffer trying to find basic programs for too long now.
