New Operating Systems – Why Patience is Prudent
BEMA recommends waiting to implement new Operating Systems until they have been fully tested by our engineers.
This BEMA practice is one that we adhere to internally and is prudent for numerous reasons. In the past, people who have immediately moved to a new OS (regardless of which vendor was behind the release) have had issues ranging from incompatible versions of hardware drivers to their existing hardware not meeting the new minimum system requirements. Running an OS on hardware that is below specifications may cause your systems to lock up or crash. Being one of the earliest adopters of a new OS is called living on the “bleeding edge” for a reason. It can often become very messy in a short period of time and simply isn’t worth the risk to your work environment.
