tips to choose one or the other

If you doubt when choosing between Windows 10 or Windows 11 calm, you are not the only one. The launch of Windows 11 was accompanied by a very large and important increase in requirements, so much so that it left many users unable to upgrade to said operating system because they did not meet the minimum requirements.

Others chose not to upgrade because, despite meeting those requirements, they barely reached the minimum level, and therefore they were afraid that the final experience would not be as good as it should be. This makes a lot of sense because, in the end, it’s better to stay on an older operating system that works well than to upgrade to a newer one that our team can’t move smoothly.

I know that many of you still have doubts about whether you should upgrade to Windows 11 or if it would be better to stay on Windows 10, and that is why I wanted to make this simple guide, where I am going to give you three keys that will be very useful to you to make that decision without making mistakes. If you have any questions after reading the article, you can leave them in the comments.

1.-If you do not meet the requirements of Windows 11, stay on Windows 10

Windows 11

This is one of the most important issues, and you should give it total priority because the experience you are going to enjoy when going from Windows 10 to Windows 11 will depend on this. Keep in mind that the second one has higher requirements, and that if you install it at despite not meeting those requirements you could end up having problems in the short or long termand even run out of updates.

Windows 10 is a lighter operating system than works better with much more modest hardwareand should be your choice if you use a PC or laptop equipped with:

  • Kaby Lake processor or lower (not officially supported on Windows 11).
  • Compatible processor but with low IPC or less than four cores, such as the low-power, low-performance Celeron and Pentium series.
  • Less than 8 GB of RAM.

Windows 11 gives significant performance problems with less than 8 GB of RAM, and a CPU that does not reach the minimum level of four cores and a good IPC will also weigh down the user experience a lot. In these cases you’d be better off sticking with Windows 10.

2.-The user interface has changed, and you will have to adapt to it

Windows 11

Windows 11 brings important changes both at the design and interface level, and not everyone has liked these. My personal experience with this operating system has not been good in this sense, perhaps because I am very used to Windows 10, but the truth is that deep down it is undeniable that Microsoft has introduced unwise changes.

I could give you many examples, but one of the clearest, and one of the most grating for me, is the start menu, which has lost many points compared to Windows 10. Changes have also been introduced in other aspects that have not been successful at all, and the taskbar is one of the most talked about and one of those that has generated the most controversy.

On the other hand, Microsoft also has unnecessarily complicated the performance of certain basic actions with the changes that you have introduced in the menu that appears when you right click, and this has meant that something as simple and simple as creating a folder or changing the name of a file can now become a headache, especially for less advanced users.

3.-Windows 11 is less mature than Windows 10

This is also very important, because it poses problems in terms of stability and reliability. Windows 10 has matured a lot over the yearsand even so it is still not perfect in terms of support and updates, because it still receives patches with defects and unresolved bugs, which means that in the end we run the risk of having more or less serious problems.

With Windows 11 we have a lower degree of maturity, a reality that is evidenced with each new update, since these they usually come with major problems that make more than one user end up “shaking their legs” when it is their turn to update Windows 11.

Given how important is the stability of a work PC or laptop For any professional, and all the problems that can arise from a serious failure of the operating system, I think we should also take this point into account and give it the importance it deserves.

For the avoidance of doubt, I’m not saying that if you install Windows 11 on a compatible PC with good hardware you’re going to have problems instantly, but yes, you run a higher risk of suffering them from future patches and updates.
