  • Windows 10 boot-up very fast
  • Windows 10 is more secure
  • DirectX 12 is only supported in Windows 10 (Gaming)
  • Windows 10 has Virtual Desktops
  • Windows 10 will keep on being supported by hardware vendors
  • Start Menu is back (Windows 8 users)

There is still some support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, but it will not last forever. If you wonder how long Microsoft will keep up with support and updates for older Windows versions, check out this link: When will Microsoft pull the plug on your version of Windows

    My windows 7 is not original,whether it will work for me also.And whether i can directly upgrade it without formatting.Thanks.

      I don’t think it will work without a valid Windows licens, but no formatting needed and all data are preserved doing the upgrade progress.

    Hi, Thomas
    I would say Windows 10 is the best ever operating system I used. I’m currently using Windows 10 and it’s working damn good. Please keep writing.
    Thanks for sharing this necessary and informative post.

    Dammit, I forgot. I was going to dual-boot my Mac, but I ran out of time.

    I have a feeling that Microsoft will re-open free upgrades if sales fall below a certain level though.
