CustomerThank you for using

The major reason a computer user would want change from one OS to another would be for the updated features of the other OS. These features may include security, compatibility, etc. The new operating system that you would be installing could be able to utilize computer hardware to its full potential and allow video games or movies to be displayed in higher resolution.

Newer operating systems have the benefit of having the latest patches and security fixes included. Many older operating systems are no longer supported and do not get updated for current security risks.
