Windows 10 Home 64-bit

Operating System

Windows 10 Home 64-bit Picture 37028
Windows 10 is the new release of Microsoft's operating system from the middle of 2015. It takes design and appearance cues from Windows 8 / 8.1, but brings back some of the more traditional user interface from Windows 7 and earlier. Most importantly the Start menu makes its return, while integrating aspects of the apps that debuted with Windows 8.

Windows 10 comes in two primary editions: Home and Pro. This is the Home version, which supports one CPU and includes most of the features a normal PC user needs - but does not support advanced capabilities like BitLocker, Boot from VHD, Client Hyper-V, Domain Join, Encrypting File System, Group Policy, Remote Desktop Hosting, etc. It can be upgraded to the Pro version to add those features at a later date.

I strongly recommend Windows 10 Pro instead of Home. The Home edition does not allow you to defer feature updates. We've found this to be a very bad thing. Microsoft seems to be putting significantly less time into testing their updates now -- if you are the first to install an update, YOU are testing it. We recommend NOT being a part of that first group. Defer updates, and when you get the update, it will be well tested, and whatever software you run will have had time to issue updates to fix any problems caused by the new Windows features. We have seen SO MANY computers be broken by buggy Windows 10 updates, so we have decided to ship our Windows 10 Pro computers with this option enabled. So...get Windows 10 Pro instead, and take advantage of this feature. Let someone else be the guinea pig.

Don't do it. Don't become a guinea pig with forced updates. Go with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit instead to eliminate the headaches.

Windows 10 Home users will get forced updates. Then after the Windows 10 Home users find and report the bugs (either automatically, or through manual reports), Microsoft will fix/update those updates. With Windows 10 Pro, users have the option to choose to have delayed updates, having a better chance of getting the fixed updates at a later date.

I like Windows 10 in general, but Mr. Stubbers is right here. I'd stay away from Windows 10 Home and go for Windows 10 Pro instead.
