Top 3 reasons for Windows 10

Time and again people ask us whether upgrading to Windows 11 is worth it – and on which devices the new operating system will technically run. Of course, there is not a single answer for everyone, but in general, we can say: Even one year after the launch of Windows 11, its predecessor is still the first choice. According to current studies, the market share of Windows 10 is between 70% and 80%. Top 3 reasons for Windows 10:

1) Windows 10 has everything you need. The well-developed operating system comes with all the features that most companies need. No reason to waste effort on changing the system. Moreover, Windows 10 will be provided with updates until October 2025. So there is no need for action either.

2) Windows 10 is a familiar environment. In contrast, the new look of Windows 11 takes some time to get used to. Especially colleagues who are not “power users” have to learn the ropes – and that often includes getting a little frustrated. So better stay with Windows 10, where every click is already known.

3) Windows 10 is running and running. There are no particularly high hardware requirements. That’s quite different with Windows 11. Just recently, a comprehensive study by the IT company Lansweeper caused a stir: a whopping 42% of PCs and notebooks are not compatible with Windows 11. Around 30 million computers in 60,000 companies were examined! To replace these 12.6 million incompatible devices alone would require billions in investment. In terms of ecological sustainability, it’s better to continue with Windows 10 – and make the most of the life cycle of existing hardware.
