Why you should shut down Windows
Windows is a great operating system, but it’s aging and it’s time to retire it. Shutting down Windows is the best way to do this.
First, Windows is old. It was released in 2001, and at that time it was the most up-to-date operating system on the market. However, by 2009, newer operating systems had been released, and Windows was no longer the best option.
Second, Windows is resource-intensive. It requires a lot of memory and processor time to run, and as hardware gets more powerful, this requirement grows. Shutting down Windows will free up resources that can be used for newer, more powerful operating systems.
Third, Windows is vulnerable. Malware and other malicious software can attack Windows, and even when it’s up-and-running, it’s possible for things to go wrong. Shutting down Windows will protect your computer from attack and reduce the chances of something going wrong.
Fourth, Windows is outdated. New operating systems are released every year, and they’re updated regularly with new features and improvements. Shutting down Windows will keep it current and remove the need to update it.
All of these reasons make shutting down Windows the best way to retire it.
Windows 11 is shutting down on October 15th. If you’re using Windows 11, you need to upgrade to Windows 10 or prepare to shut down your computer.
