Do you need to migrate to Windows 10? 2


An old married couple I know have this routine:  Whenever a new dish is served, he turns to her and asks “Do I like this?”.
She, in turn, gets all flustered about how he implies her controlling nature – while he gets a chuckle for getting away with it.
Perhaps like me, you feel the same way about Microsoft — they want to tell us that we will like Windows 10, whether we like it or not (pardon the pun).

What is Windows 10? Do you need it?

You may have noticed your (Windows 7, 8, or 8.1) computer informing you that you need to upgrade your computer to windows 10.  However, you may ask yourself “what is Windows 10, why do I need it”?
I will answer the second question first: you probably don’t need it.
Microsoft’s Windows progression

Windows 10 is a product of the progression in Microsoft’s Windows operating system’s looks (the Graphic User Interface). 
When Microsoft created Windows XP, they made a GUI that people were able to get used to.  The system was very stable, and many users who were new to computers, learned how to use it. Therefore it became very popular.
Due to new hacking vulnerabilities (or so they claim), Microsoft created a new Operating system called Windows 7.  This had most of the familiarity of the “old shoe,” Windows XP with some slight changes.  The big changes were “under the hood” so that it addressed the hacking vulnerabilities.
Shortly thereafter, they created Windows 8.  This had major changes in the Graphic User Interface, and was, in fact, inconvenient to use unless you had a touch screen computer.  Immediately there was a update – Windows 8.1.
This brought back some (I repeat some) of the conveniences of working with a mouse rather than a touch screen.
On April 8th, 2014 Microsoft announced the end of support for Windows XP, basically forcing users of older computers to upgrade or buy new.
Which brings us to Windows 10.  It brings back many more of the conveniences of Windows XP and Windows 7, while re-introducing some of the Windows 8 touch screen options in a more understated manner.
There is also a built-in assistant called Cortana that is similar to Apple’s Siri and Android’s “OK Google”.
Honey, Do I like Windows 10?

Old Couple Windows 10

  • If you have Windows 7, and you are used to it, you don’t need Windows 10.  It will just confuse you.
  • If you have Windows 8 or 8.1 and you are used to it.  You don’t need Windows 10, but it may be easier to use, and therefore a worthwhile update.
  • If you have Windows 8 or 8.1, but you are used to Windows 7 or XP, then you absolutely need this update!
