Seven reasons to choose Windows

Easy does it

From Start to desktop to touch, it's never been easier
With Windows 8.1, you can start from the desktop you've always known or the modern Start screen with apps as Live Tiles. You can use touch, your mouse or the keyboard – whatever's easier. And you can use the accessories you want because Windows is compatible with nearly all of them. Plus, you can search your PC, the web, the cloud and apps at the same time with Bing Smart Search. Just access the Search charm from the right side of your screen.

Get busy

Tools to help you get work done
Get Office and you'll have the freedom to work virtually anytime, anywhere, on any device. Create documents with Office applications you know and trust, save them to the cloud, and edit and collaborate with others in real time with Office Online. Plus, multitasking split screens help you juggle when you need to, and Bing Smart Search helps you find the info fast no matter where it is.

All the apps

The world of Windows apps
In the Windows Store you'll find the apps you love, with new ones to discover every day. And built-in apps help you do more, like the Food + Drink app that gives you a hand in the kitchen, and the Photos app that lets you edit your shots in new ways.

Skype

With the Skype app, you can call any phone quickly and easily. Make free video and voice calls with your friends and family in faraway places, and get messages delivered straight to you, no matter what you're doing.

Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer 11 taps into the power of your specific device to load sites faster and let you browse more safely. And it's designed for touch, so navigating the web is more intuitive on your phone, tablet and touch laptop.

Make it personal

Transform your desktop
Want a hipper desktop? You can customize that too with stunning desktop backgrounds from around the world, and Windows themes featuring photo sets, color palettes, and sound design. Harley adds his own roadtrip photos, which also do the trick.

Always connected

One Windows across your devices
With OneDrive, you have access to your music, movies, photos, documents, settings, Windows apps, even browsing history, across your devices, with 15 GB of free storage. That's enough for roughly 255 hours of music, 20,000 Word documents, or 300,000 photos. In other words, it's a lot.
You can use the same Microsoft Account on every device. This means you only need to remember one user ID and password, and your favorites and settings will automatically follow you from one device to the next.
The fun of it

Xbox on Windows is your entertainment hub
Xbox is your complete entertainment center in the cloud, giving you access to your games, music, movies, iTunes libraries, and more – at home and on the go.

Xbox Games

Xbox Games has the titles you want and new arrivals every day. You can use touch with many games for a more immersive experience. And with Xbox Service, you can trash talk your friends, rocket up the leaderboard and more.

Xbox Music

Xbox Music gives you access to millions of songs. Import your existing media library, including iTunes, to have your music in one place, and listen on your PC, tablet, phone, Xbox, and the web. Go premium with Xbox Music Pass to stream and download to your heart's content.

Xbox Video

Rent or buy the newest HD movies - many before they're available on DVD and Blu-ray – and catch up on TV shows the day after they air. You'll have access on all your devices so you can watch whatever, whenever the mood strikes.

Windows UPGRADE brings you the Windows Store, Start screen, and Microsoft account, but also enhancements in personalization, search, Store apps, and cloud connectivity—and the security and reliability features you expect from Windows.

WHEN SHOULD YOU UPGRADE YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM?

Cost, security, and the march of time

Security makes the most compelling reason to upgrade your operating system right now. If you're still stubbornly clomping along on an OS that's three versions or more behind the time, you're missing out on years of important security updates for your system.

Cost can present a barrier, but the most recent OS upgrades from Microsoft and Apple have kept it to a minimum. Mountain Lion's lower price makes the upgrade a reasonable move for most Mac owners at any point. Updating a PC is usually more costly, but if your PC can comfortably run Windows 8 or above, upgrading early can save you money. You can snag a Windows 8 upgrade for a low amount through the end of January 2013, and a lower price, if recently bought a new Windows 7 laptop.

Another must-update situation exists if your OS version is so old that the manufacturer no longer sells or supports it. Somewhere around the five-year mark, you'll fall off the back of the update cycle, and your system will be too old to handle further upgrades.
