Before buying licensed software, you need to understand the difference between Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro, which edition suits your requirements, and what are the benefits of working with each of them. Both versions are popular and not significantly different in price, but some prefer the "Home" version while others prefer the "Professional" one. We offer a general guide to the most popular versions of Windows 10 so that you can decide which edition is right for you.
If you use your PC exclusively for "household" needs (surfing the Internet, working with documentation, etc.), then the "Home" version is your option. Externally, it does not differ from the "Professional" for everyday use but gives a significant advantage — free space. There is no need to overpay for functionality you do not intend to use.
It's different if you use your PC as a source of income. But even in that case, Windows 10 Home can handle the tasks of a small or medium-sized business. Even the built-in standard tools are enough to keep records, communicate with customers, do simple visual content processing, and even administer multiple computers connected via a local network.
In addition, the "Home" version has the following innovations:
When installing the operating system, remember that the listed advantages work to their full potential and optimize user experience only if you use the official version of the operating system. In pirate builds, functions are reduced, work with bugs or provide secret "loopholes" for intruders. We recommend buying an electronic key for Windows 10, which guarantees the system will work as declared on the manufacturer's website and will not compromise your data.
The manufacturer has deprived the user of the ability to select the type of update. Now the system is updated using a single branch — the Current Branch in the Windows Update node. The bad thing about this is that all the fixes in the branch are accepted automatically and immediately. It does not give any time delay, which is why quite a few updates come with bugs. Using Windows 10 Home, your system will be updated forcibly, without the ability to choose how it will be updated.
Windows 10 Professional is the highest version of the operating system. That means:
The latter are useful for medium and large businesses. The "Professional" edition is used in enterprises but is just as suitable for home use. Here's a list of features that explain the difference between Windows 10 Pro and Home:
If, with Windows 10 Professional, an enterprise succeeds and grows into a large organization, the "Professional" version is upgraded to "Corporate" for a small fee.
The flaw with updates in Windows 10 Professional has been solved. The system uses the Current Branch and a flexible version — Current Branch for Business. In addition, CBB is distributed through a more advanced service — Windows Update for Business. It is designed for corporate customers.
All of the functionality supplied by CBB is tested, so it is much less likely to cause the system to malfunction.
