The GDPR protects all personal data (such as name, identification number etc) and, interestingly, there is no distinction between private, public or work roles.

Windows 10 Home edition will be enough for the vast majority of you who just want to browse the web, do a little work, and manage their picture or film files. There are certainly a few benefits for the Pro version, with its focus on security and compatibility, but of course the value of these features will come down to whether you actually intend to use them or not. Most home users won’t, but are you a home user? Are you creating quotation, invoice or you just register who paid you for your 1 a week help with someone garden or ironing? If you have any doubts with answering previous question or you answered yes, then probably you are business user.

The main differences between Pro and Home are for business users.

Main business features of Windows 10 Pro

-Support for joining a domain, which allows PCs to be added to a corporate network. With Windows 10 Home, you can’t do it!

-In Windows 10 Pro you get the option to defer updates, but this option does not exist in Home. Microsoft forces patches and updates to Home machines automatically. You can stop them for a few hours, but that’s it. Updates can be put off for several months.

 

-Group Policy Management and access to the Windows 10 Business Store. Microsoft also makes the ability to join Azure Active Directory, with a single sign-on to cloud hosted apps.

-Can be remotely controlled. Windows 10 Home machines can only be assisted remotely, and this is mainly for an expert.
