Windows users: Why you need the latest operating system

Despite being the world’s favorite operating system for over three decades, businesses have traditionally been stubborn when it comes to switching to new Windows editions. It’s not entirely without reason either. Some iterations of Windows have been downright awful to the point of causing serious disruption not just for early adopters, but for everyone who chose to upgrade.

What’s the problem with legacy software?

Technology advances at a breakneck pace and businesses have never had so many options when it comes to software. There’s an enterprise app for accounting, marketing, business intelligence, and more. But despite the plethora of fast, feature-rich apps on the market, there are still people who use horribly outdated “legacy” software like Windows XP and Microsoft Office 97.

One reason for this is that people believe they have all the features they need and don’t want to spend more money on a modern application.
