Someone recently asked me what version of Windows I recommend deploying on a system. They pointed to the various Windows versions available, including Enterprise SKUs, Windows 10 Professional and Windows 10 Home. For most small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) and home users, I recommend Windows 10 or 11 Professional — which you can move up to even if you initially purchase Windows 10 or 11 Home. Professional gives you more control over updates and exposes local group policies so you can control more items in the OS.
Another important point is to make sure the computer you buy has appropriate hardware. In particular, that means having a solid-state drive (SSD).
