Why I am Recommending Against Migrating to Windows 10 For the Moment
We are all aware of Windows 10. Many of you are aware that you can upgrade Windows 7 or Windows 8 to Windows 10 for free.
What a much smaller number of people know about, but are starting to report, are the networking issues that exist in Windows 10.
Issue #1 – VPN Software does not work with Windows 10. Older VPN software, such as the Cisco client, won’t work without some serious tweaking. So, with Windows 10, you can no longer access your work network easily.
Issue #2 – Virtual Adapters may not work. If you work with virtual machines, you may experience some serious issues with trying to use those virtual machines.
Issue #3 – Even after you fix these problems, the next round of Windows Updates will most likely break you networking again. I experienced this three different times in 2015. The automatic update broke my networking fixes. At which point, I went back to Windows 8.1.
