My suggestion is, download it….

  • If you like to use and experiment the latest, newest software and technology
  • If you are used to back up a PC, formatting a hard drive, and installing a Windows operating system from scratch
  • If you are comfortable with troubleshooting your PC problems “yourself”
  • And if you have knowledge about how to restore your previous operating system (in case you messed up, just kidding :D)
