Windows 10 is the latest version of the Microsoft operating system and there is also the possibility to perform an upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8. Now you may ask yourself:

Does it already make sense to update my OS to Windows 10?

Windows 10

This question is especially interesting because Microsoft Windows 10 offers the update for free, if you have already installed Windows 7 or Windows 8. We now want to give you an estimate on this question here:

Windows 10 is currently still in testing phase. It is already fairly stable, but of course errors and problems occur more often than in a finished version. For example, it may happen that the Start menu is gone. Such errors can be very annoying if you need Windows 10 to work. Background of the free trial, until the appearance of the final retail version is, that users report errors and will forward them to Microsoft.

Therefore, our recommendation:

Do not upgrade to Windows 10, if you need your computer urgently for work or browsing the internet. Just wait until Microsoft provides a finished version where all errors as far as known, are fixed.
Should you still want to test Windows 10, we recommend you to install the operating system to another hard disk. So you can change between the operating systems. However, this requires a necessary know-how of the materia.
