Windows 10 Versions – which to choose

Windows 10 Editions Compare Table Windows10-editionsMost people thinking about upgrading to Windows 10 will be using the same hardware (laptop, desktop, all-in-one or convertible) for the upgrade. But if you are planning a new computer, network or just replacing the odd machine, which Windows 10 license do you require?

Here is a list of the features from Microsoft. If you are after just the differences between versions, skip to page two.

Some of the considerations might be:

Will you connect to an on site Microsoft server or Microsoft Azure service?

Do you need to remote into other computers with Remote Desktop?

Is there a need to run a virtual machine on your computer?

Is your business or software vendor creating an App for the Windows store?

Do you have a requirement to schedule updates in the future?

If you are answering “yes” to any of the above questions, you’ll need to consider Windows 10 Professional at a minimum.
