Which version of Windows 10 is best suited for me?

Various versions and editions of Windows have been released over the years. Microsoft releases a newer version of their popular operating system every so often. Each version of Windows has multiple editions, some of which may differ in functionality. It is also the first time that Microsoft has a new way of updating with Windows 10: previously, if you wanted to upgrade, you had to buy a new CD of the latest edition of Windows. Nowadays this is no longer necessary, because you can now upgrade directly to Windows 10 from an older version of Microsoft, such as Windows 7 or 8 for example. Because Windows 10 has different forms of license and has multiple editions, it is good to know which edition you purchase and in what quantities, so that you don’t waste your money on features you don’t use. Are you curious which version of Windows 10 best suits your needs? We will answer your question below.
