Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft (as of January, 2020). Any system with Windows 7 is subject to major security risks.

Here’s what you need to know about Windows 10:

  1. The traditional start menu has returned
  2. Windows 10 has enhanced security and updates
  3. Performance is very good
  4. Supports multiple “virtual” desktops
  5. This is the last version of Windows. Microsoft has indicated that Windows 10 will be the last numbered version of the OS. Updates and upgrades will become more incremental.
