If you haven’t upgraded to Windows 10 by now know that time is running out and you should probably consider the option now before it won’t be downloadable for free anymore. The last day for the Windows 10 free download is the 29th of July.

Of course, you will be able to download it after that date, but it will cost you about $120 for the Home version and $190 for the Pro version. Also, keep in mind that Microsoft will support your Windows 10 upgrade for the duration of the device for free.

Here are some reasons why you should upgrade, complete with an overview of the downsides to the upgrading.

Windows 7 is widely used in business environments and it has proven to be one of the most efficient OS versions so far so it’s understandable why some business owners do not see the advantages in upgrading.

While Windows 10 offers a far more secure experience and improved manageability, it does have its downsides. For example, we have the new UWP calculator which is now slower to launch and takes up even more space than before. And it’s not the only app that behaves differently to what we’re used to in Windows 7; there’s also the confusing Settings and Control Panel arrangements plus the slower and more complicated Start Menu.

However, aside from these issues that take a while to get used to, upgrading ensures that Microsoft will service your OS for longer. Moreover, it handles multiple file copies better, the command promt has a more efficient text selection and quick editing, it makes it far more safer to install and uninstall apps or to add or remove them and it features multiple desktops which are easy to use and very useful.

There you have, the clock is ticking and we advise you to try to make a decision as fast as possible if you are interested in trying out the new OS.
