3 Reasons to Upgrade to Windows 8
« on: May 28, 2013, 01:16:32 PM »
With each new version of Windows, an inevitable question arises: Should you upgrade or should you stay on the sidelines for a while? While there’s no simple answer to that question, Small Business Computing offers several good reasons to embrace Windows 8.
Why the Windows 8 Operating System is a Good Choice

From better mobility to improved System restore and built-in antivirus control, here are three good reasons why you should consider upgrading to Windows 8:
1. Windows to Go Offers Better Mobility
Businesses that opt for Windows 8 Enterprise can avail themselves of Windows to Go, a feature that enables a self-contained, secure and customizable Windows 8 environment to run on a portable USB flash drive. Windows to Go can be extremely useful in a number of different scenarios, from allowing contract and remote workers to access corporate applications and data from personal PCs (rather than having to issue them company-owned hardware), to giving in-office workers greater mobility by not tying them down to a particular PC.
2. Faster System Recovery
System Restore can sometimes fix problems by rolling the computer back to an earlier system configuration, but often the only surefire way to cure a PC of serious maladies is to start over from scratch with a fresh copy of Windows.  With Windows 8, things are considerably simpler and quicker. Windows 8's PC Refresh feature will—in slightly less than 10 minutes—automatically reinstall a clean copy of Windows 8 while preserving personal data, key system settings, and Windows 8-compatible apps. For technical reasons, you will still have to install pre-Windows 8 programs after the refresh, but a list of such software is saved for you so you don’t have to compile it.
3. Windows 8 has Built-in Anti-Virus
The Windows Defender that ships with Windows 8 offers the same full-fledged virus and malware protection you get with Microsoft's well-regarded Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE), without the need to download or install additional anti-virus software. (Plus, it’s truly free, because although MSE is free to download for personal use, the license agreement limits its use by small businesses to a maximum of 10 PCs.
