Should Businesses Running Old Windows Os Upgrade Now?

Many large businesses run old Windows operating systems en masse, including XP, Vista (to a smaller extent),7 and 8. I've even seen a couple still using Windows 2000 or ME!

With Windows 10 now becoming quite a popular and more stable operating system, do you think these businesses should invest in an upgrade?

Absolutely, although I can understand that cost may be a concern for many businesses. Windows 10 is proving to be a great operating system though, with great advantages if you have a work smart phone (of any make). I definitely think it increases my productivity, especially after the disaster that was Windows 8 and the hours of confusion that caused me.

Yeah, I can largely agree with that, although I'm not sure those running Windows 7 and 8 will benefit as much as those running 2000/ME/XP/Vista.

I think they will. Windows 10 is all about connecting with other devices and making the working experience on the whole smoother. I think it's a huge improvement over Windows 7 and 8. 7 is a lovely operating system, but it's getting on a bit now and is sluggish in terms of loading speeds etc. Believe it or not, you'll also save electricity by choosing Windows 10 over Windows 7. Windows 10 taxes your hardware less.

And then Windows 8 was just... well...
