Today’s topic: which edition of Windows 10 should I buy?

  • 99.9% of the time, you only need make one decision
    • Windows 10 Home
    • Windows 10 Pro

Select Windows 10 Home when:

  • You implicitly trust Microsoft to always do the right thing and look out for your best interests
  • You have no qualms about providing your entire, and I mean entire, computing telemetry to Microsoft
  • You can’t afford an upgrade to Pro

Select Windows 10 Pro when:

  • You want better manageability of your system
  • You want to verify what the hell Microsoft might be doing to your system every month
  • You want to maintain some degree of professional version control over your computers

Midsize businesses have an additional option:

  • Windows 10 Enterprise (contact us for additional info)


  • For most users, purchase Windows 10 Pro to maintain some degree of control and privacy
  • If shopping new and Home is pre-installed , ask about the incremental cost for a Pro upgrade
  • Its less expensive to upgrade at time of purchase than after the fact
