Microsoft has announced that the current version of Windows 10, released in 2022, will be its final release.

If you are currently using Windows 10, you might wonder what this will mean for your day-to-day operations. The good news is that your computers won’t suddenly stop working, nor will the current updates and security patches for Windows 10 disappear any time soon.

However, you may want to think about upgrading to Windows 11 sooner, rather than later. Microsoft has made it clear that it will be devoting all of its attention to the new operating system from now on, so future developments and innovation will be focused on Windows 11.

 Upgrading can be a daunting task, but moving to Windows 11 has so many benefits:

Enhanced Performance

Windows 11 has been designed to maximise efficiency and performance across all types of devices, making it a no-brainer for businesses looking for faster and more efficient technology.

Improved User Experience

The Windows 11 interface and been given an upgrade in the form of a new modern look. This also makes it easier to navigate and customise so you can have it however you would like.

Increased Security

Windows 11 comes with Microsoft’s most advanced features. This includes security features, making it harder for cyber criminals to breach your system.

Better Integration with Cloud Services

Windows 11 gives you access to a range of cloud-based services. This makes it easier to collaborate with other team members and enhance your business’ productivity.


If you are still hesitant about upgrading, keep in mind that Microsoft will eventually stop releasing security updates for Windows 10. We are expecting it to be in late 2025. This means that you should upgrade sooner rather than later and staying with Windows 10 for too long could put your business at risk of security threats. The sooner you upgrade, the better your protection against these threats, and the more significant the benefits you will be able to reap from Windows 11.

Like any big project, making the move to Windows 11 needs to be planned and implemented properly. Your hardware needs to meet certain requirements and, of course, you will need to make sure it is done without affecting day to day operations.
