Unless you’re been living in a cave or in forest, you’re likely aware of the fact that’s It’s been a couple of days since Windows 10 release and there are still some people who are not yet quiet sure whether this new Microsoft’s OS “ Windows 10 ” is worth an upgrade. Microsoft itself has kicked off a series of Videos and blogs to show why you should upgrade/purchase Windows 10. Initially became available for upgrade/purchase on July 29th Wednesday. Not only Windows 10 is faster and performance efficient than previous version of Windows but also comes with a set of new features and application which makes it the best Windows of all time.

If you’re one of those user who haven’t moved to Windows 8 or 8.1, you’ve probably miss one of the most important feature of Microsoft’s Modern OS, the fast startup.

Benchmarks even shows that Microsoft’s newest Windows 10 is more efficient in a sense because it ram usage is less which increase desktop experience by a great magnitude.

2.We really missed you Start Menu:

With the release of Windows 8, Microsoft removed start menu which was replaced by a start screen which is a Modern user interface for Windows and worked great out for those who own touch screen PC or tablet. It mainly aimed at touchscreen capable devices. While it turned out to be frustrating for those who didn’t own touch screen devices. Windows 8.1 returned the start menu button which allowed to enter the start screen with just one click but still there was no sign of Classic start menu from the original Windows. With Windows 10, start menu also returned and we really missed you. The new Windows comes with a modern day start menu which is a combination of previous Windows 8 start screen and Classic start menu with colorful dynamic tiles and shortcut access to your favorite applications and software etc.
