The Benefits and Downfalls of the Windows Operating System

0 1

There are pros and cons when it comes to any operating system. Most people use a Windows operating system on their computer. It is important to understand the benefits and drawbacks that come with using the Windows operating system on your personal computer.

The biggest benefit that Windows can offer you as a user is that it was created to operate programs. Due to this there is a huge variety of software that works on Windows. All you need to do is click the install button and you can be using this software within fifteen minutes. Those that do not use a Windows operating system will find that many applications do not work on their system.

Unfortunately there are some drawbacks to using Windows. One of the negative aspects of using this system is that you will need to back your files up on a regular basis. This is because Windows does have technical difficulties sometimes. In some circumstances Windows will have a system error and lose the changes that you have made to files. Other times the computer will freeze and be unable to save your work

As Windows is so popular many people develop viruses to send out to Windows users. This can mean one of two things. You will either learn to live with your computer and the virus that is attacking it or you will spend hours trying to fix your system. Both ways are time consuming and frustrating.

There are many benefits to using a Windows operating system and this is why many people choose it over other systems. The features and interface are attractive to users and it is easy to use. However with the good comes the bad. At times this system can be slow, have a frozen screen or get viruses from both e-mail and websites.
