However youre getting Windows 10 either with the free upgrade offer or on a new PC youre probably getting Windows 10 Home. You can pay to upgrade that Windows 10 Home system to Windows 10 Professional but should you?

If you already had a Professional edition of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, dont worry. The free upgrade offer will give you Windows 10 Professional. Otherwise, youll need to shell out some money if you want the below extra features.


Should You Upgrade to the Professional Edition of Windows 10?

HowToGeek have good articles when it comes to these kind of things. It's worth a read. Even thought most of these features are already available under Windows 8.1 Professional (so it's not new), it's still good information for users that never used Windows 8 or 8.1 Professional and want to see what it'll bring them if they upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.

I don't even understand what you're trying to say here. That this article has been copy/pasted? If so, feel free to try to prove it, I don't really care to be honest. I'm just posting it here for other users to read and learn. Simple as that.

That's a good idea, Aura.  If someone's going to go to Win10, they should only use Pro.  Surely someone will see this and thank you for posting it. :)

No one is asking you to buy Windows 10 Profesional Jerky. If you feel that you are wasting money on Windows 10 Pro, then it's become you're not spending it wisely. If you don't need it, there's no need to buy it, so even less to "waste" it. You can stick to Windows 10 Home or your current Windows 8.1, no one's forcing you to upgrade. Users like me wouldn't be able to handle a core edition of Windows however with what I have to do.

For anybody who may be interested - Or not -

 

I had a Copy and Paste script that was not directed at Aura et al but was for another person (private) but I posted it here by accident, as this was where I was reading

 

Since I noted that it was here, I removed it by edit, and I can only EDIT my script, and not Remove it. - Cry elsewhere to get things Removed, or grow up..

 

I chose to Edit it fully, and posted it to the PRIVATE person to whom it was directed in the first place.

 

Unless you have a more eloquent request, it is left at that ...

I also reply / post to people via email, and this 2 week old article was meant for email, not post or reply.

As said, This page was open - - and I was reading / responding to emails on my Windows 7.1 laptop to a co-worker in Nevada USA.

 

Even with 2 private editors, plus Notepad & Wordpad I miss-post and then edit once posted

but I posted it here by accident, as this was where I was reading

I once posted an answer to a Linux question on a tropical fish keeping forum,

 

It went something like this.

 

Help my Gourami is sick, There followed by a description of what was wrong and some Photos of the poorly fishy.

killall [options] program_name(s) 

Was not the answer the poor person was expecting.
