Microsoft Windows 10

Windows 10 delivers a refined, vastly improved vision for the future of computing with an operating system that's equally at home on tablets and traditional PCs -- and it's a free upgrade for most users.

Android Oreo

Oreo doubles down on the nuts and bolts -- and speed.

Microsoft Windows 7

Windows 7 is more than what Vista should have been, it's where Microsoft needed to go. How much damage Vista did and whether Windows 7 is enough for people to finally abandon Windows XP are questions that nobody has the answers to right now.

Microsoft Windows 8.1

If you're a dedicated Windows 8 hater, the update to Windows 8.1 isn't going to change your mind. For everyone else, this collection of tweaks, fixes, and new features is useful, but everything here should have shipped in the original version last year.

Nokia X Software Platform

Nokia sure tried hard to give us something new, but its mashup of Android, Windows Phone, and Asha gives its Nokia X phone limited powers and a nagging identity crisis.

Apple iOS 8.1

With the latest version of iOS and an NFC-equipped iPhone, you'll finally be able to pay for transactions with Apple Pay.

Ubuntu Touch

The new Ubuntu Touch operating system for phones and tablets blows away rivals Firefox OS and Tizen -- and it may even be better than iOS and Android.

Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

If you own a Mac, you'll want El Capitan. This update simplifies the Mac experience, improving the tools you already use while promising improved performance to come.

Microsoft Windows Me

Millennium is a great face-lift for Windows 98, but it's not a necessary upgrade. If you have technical difficulties or work with pictures or music, try the new OS. But if you're happy with Windows 98, stick with it.

Android Wear 2.0

With lots of new features, the LG Watch Sport and Style are the first to use the new software -- and it's promising.

Apple iOS 10

iOS 10 serves up plenty of useful quality of life improvements, but a few rough edges keep it from shining too brightly.

Apple macOS High Sierra

Unless you're really into Photos or have installed the iOS 11 beta, there's no FOMO by passing on the public beta of Apple's latest OS.

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite

From new Continuity features to smaller, useful tweaks across core apps, Mac OS X Yosemite is a must download for Mac users.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Update

With new functionality for the Start button and separate experiences for desktop and tablet users, the Windows 8.1 update finally gives people what they want.

Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is out now. This is everything you need to know about Google's mobile operating system update.

Google Android L

Google gives us a preview of the future of its mobile operating system.

Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar

Take a good, hard look at Mac OS X 10.2 if you're adding a Mac to a Windows network--Jaguar's new tools can't be beat. But home users, beware the $129 upgrade price if you're not looking for networking options.

Windows Vista Home Basic

Windows Vista Home Basic is essentially warmed-over Windows XP, Windows XP SP3. If you're currently happy with Windows XP SP2, we see no compelling reason to upgrade. On the other hand, if you need a new computer right now, Windows Vista is stable enough for everyday use.
