There’s bound to be controversy whenever Microsoft introduces a new version of Windows. People complain about the new interface, about compatibility issues, and more. However, the controversy usually dies down after a while as consumers and businesses alike make the switch. Windows 8, on the other hand, has now been out for a year and a half, and the debate about it is still hot. When looking at your own business, is converting to the new Windows worth it?
One thing that Windows 8 offers over previous versions of the operating system is more system speed and better memory management than ever before. This is due in large part to the interface being optimized for use on mobile devices, which don’t have the luxury of massive amounts of processing power that you would find on a typical office computer. If you have done everything you can to optimize your business computers and your employees are still encountering slowdown, a switch to the faster Windows 8 might be in the cards for you. This is especially true if your company makes heavy use of laptops and tablets that need to run memory-intensive programs.
