An open letter about
upgrading to Windows 10:
In Response to those who
could upgrade but don’t want to or have ‘heard’
When it comes to
Windows 10, there are pros and cons.
Most software runs
with Windows 10 but there are a few that
Do you know which
software will not function in Windows 10? If not,
we can assess that for you.
Offhand, some older
versions of QuickBooks are a little glitchy… there are
other applications that won’t run in the Windows 10
environment, generally these are older applications
that are in need of an upgrade…sooner or later.
Although we have had success running applications up
to 10 years old…
the better quality applications have updates
that accommodate the Operating System upgrade.
(Desktop) is more akin to Windows 7 which is nice,
plus there are huge benefits when it comes to security
and overall functionality.
all Windows upgrades, there has always been ‘people’
who don’t like the change… from our perspective, these
are the same people that tend to get viruses because
they shun a change for the better, or panic when an
icon is moved from one side of the screen to another.
This is a type of
‘Group-Think’ that promotes fear of change. All
technological progress, for better or worse carries
with it a change that will affect some system that
have been neglected. Systems supported by Total Care
IT and regularly maintained generally don’t have these
issues. Although compatibility with certain hardware
is possible, this tend to occur in systems that are
past the 5 to 7-year range and should be considered
As time progresses,
the older operating systems will become less
secure/more vulnerable to malicious attack. Granted
that Microsoft will be supporting Windows 7 till 2020,
the support is already in their secondary phase where
it mainly applies to patches and small bugs fixes.
There will be no more major releases or ‘Service
Packs’ for Windows 7.
Also consider the
age of the computer. The average computer, it’s main
storage component has a 3 to 5-year life expectancy
with normal use. These are machines and will
eventually break down, and when they do, to get a
Windows 7 system would then require a special order,
or a custom built system.
In either case, if
the system tries to update to Windows 10, let us know
and we can stop it, and/or roll it back.
