Consider if your business has old software and hardware

There are many updates to security and privacy that Windows 10 has to offer, some companies will welcome this upgrade. Most small to medium size business have a lot of computers that run older software and old backup or legacy print devices.  Many older devices will not get driver updates that will be compatible with Windows 10.

You should wait to upgrade, until your main applications (examples: older versions quickbooks and syspro) have been verified that they are Windows 10 compatible.

Most businesses will be fine for many years to come, as Windows 7 seems to be the most stable with software and hardware drivers.
