Microsoft Windows recommendations
Windows XP will no longer be supported after April 2014. If you are using Windows XP, should start thinking about moving to a new operating system. Users with newer hardware can upgrade the operating system. For users with older hardware the best choice is to purchase a new computer, which will come with a new operating system.
VISTA is an “OK” operating system. It starts very secure but not very user friendly. As the users makes it more useable, they loosen the security. Most computers running VISTA can run Windows 7 if the user wants to pay for a new operating system.
Windows 7 is the sweet spot of usability and security. However, while some Windows 98 program can run on Windows XP, the Windows 98 applications may not run on Windows 7. Upgrading to Windows 7 may mean updating peripherals and 3rd party applications.
Window 8 is has been replaced with Windows 8.1. This is not a service pack, but rather an whole new Operating System. Users should replace Windows8 with Windows 8.1 via a download from Microsoft.
Most small businesses are NOT moving to Windows 8 or 8.1 for two reasons:
1) The business runs a special database program that will not run under Windows 8.
2) The employees are not familiar with Windows 8 yet. The employer is waiting for the employees to learn Windows 8 at home and transfer the knowledge to the office.
3) Windows 8 and 8.1 were designed for touch screen (Tablet) hardware. While this great for a phone or table, most desktop and laptops are not touch capable. We can help restore the familiar “Start” button and menu option.
Call us! We can help with the decisions points including which applications will work on Win7 and Win8.1. We can set up your new computer system. And do NOT forget about your data. We will transfer your data to the new system and purge the data from the old system before its disposal.
