Developers Are No Longer Supporting 7/8.1
Early 2012, 35% of the market share is from windows XP. At the start of 2015, it significantly decreased to 12% and this is because Microsoft no longer supported Windows XP and it became such a headache to use with the support from the brains who created it.
With this previous happening, it will surely happen to Windows 7 and 8.1. Of course not now but eventually. It won’t be long when these Operating systems will be more susceptible to security and privacy issues.
Hence, it will boil down to a choice of upgrading your system instead.
The Free Upgrade Period Ends
Windows 10 upgrade is free until July 2016. It isn’t clear yet if what will happen when July comes but one thing is for sure – it is more likely that you’ll be spending those dollars when the free license for upgrade is over. So if this time comes and you don’t want to pay for this upgrade then consider making the move before July 2016.
Windows is “Cool”
Windows isn’t just “cool”, it is by far the most reliable, predictable and above all stable out of all other operating system. Yes they say Mac is “cool” and Linux is “geeky” but Windows is windows. It is boring – yes? But when all fails – no other option is readily and always available than Windows.
