It runs in your browser and it is integrated with all other Google apps. You can set meeting reminders in Google calendar ( How to use google calendar ) It is not just hangouts. If you have paid for Gsuit then you can take full advantage to conference with Hangouts. If you have enabled hangouts to meet in Gsuit admin, then you can even schedule a video call in Google Calendar. You can make appointments, invite participants and can add video call link with location. I use Hangouts for my team of 38 people and pretty happy with it.

It now promotes the Digital Civility Challenge: I embrace the challenge to be a leader in making the internet a better and safer place. I commit to do my part every day by living up to the four Digital Civility Challenge ideals Live the golden rule I will act with empathy, compassion and kindness in every interaction, and treat everyone I connect with online with dignity and respect. I will appreciate cultural differences and honor diverse perspectives. When I disagree, I will engage thoughtfully and avoid name calling and personal attacks. Respect differences I will appreciate cultural differences and honor diverse perspectives. When I disagree, I will engage thoughtfully and avoid name calling and personal attacks. Pause before replying I will pause and think before responding to things I disagree with. I will not post or send anything that could hurt someone else, damage someone’s reputation, or threaten my safety or the safety of others. Stand up for myself and others I will tell someone if I feel unsafe, offer support to those who are targets of online abuse or cruelty, report activity that threatens anyone’s safety, and preserve evidence of inappropriate or unsafe behavior. As a leader in the movement to make the internet a better place, I will share my experiences on social media using #challenge4civility or #Im4digitalcivility and encourage others to join the Digital Civility Challenge. The web site now also includes best practices for digital civility that call on companies to "create purposeful online environments, institute codes of conduct (and) offer remedies," for educators, school counsellors and school officials to "teach 'citizenship,' promote social and emotional learning (and) emphasize civility online and off," and for law enforcement and policymakers to "promote legal approaches that deter exploitation, grow public-private partnerships (and) support responsible industry practices." The best practices call on everyone to: Work together to encourage and grow a culture of online civility that respects and values different opinions. Making room for all perspectives helps to break down echo-chambers, sparks insights and improves cooperation. Embrace free expression, tolerance, and cultural and social diversity. Develop and share educational resources that encourage individuals, families and communities to proactively engage and prepare—at the earliest ages and stages— for life online. Help build and support safe and trusted online environments where individuals are encouraged and empowered to share, create, learn and fully participate. This Digital Civility initiative is a part of Microsoft's program to promote digital skills / digital literacy.

The links should explain it in more detail for prices. If you are a small business there are 6 different plans. Simple Start, Essentials, Plus, or Advance. These plans range from about $10 to $60 per month. They allow you to use it on any type of devices from computers, tablet, or phone. It is on a cloud-based server that saves it online. If you don't want that option then QuickBooks Desktop option is for installing it only on computers. Self-employment plans prices are around $5 to $17 per month. If you are an independent business and it can be used online, phones, computers and so on. The accountant plan is for online mostly. Quickbooks does have W-2 and 1099 forms people can fill out for employees or other vendors. Quickbooks does have additional forms like W-3 and 1096 forms too.  TurboTax allows you to transfer QuickBooks information over. That seems to be the most compatible software for filing your tax forms I have mentioned. This link may help you out into more details for taxes: This link talks about payrolls: This link talks about payroll and taxes: Answering your questions: What is the minimal cost involved? The price plan will be from $10 to $60 per month based on the number of features you want to use. Non-Profit Quickbooks Link: We'll need it to calculate the W2 and taxes on people's payroll, but we can send check through our bank, correct? Yes, you can make checks out or money orders payments. IRS Link: Double check to make sure the state you live in. Please explain the fee involved with QB adding the payroll from Intuit? "Each Full-Time Employee or Contractor you pay is an additional $4/employee-per-month for employees 1-10, and then $2.50 for employees 11-150). If you file taxes in more than one state, each additional state is currently  $12 /month. Offer valid for new QuickBooks Online customers only, for a limited time." The desktop quick book version has a different price from the online version.

I am not sure what is the best way to do that, but if it were me I think I would wipe the hard drive and then install Windows 10 as if it was a new machine. But if the server has windows I think you could also just use it as is, depending on what version it is. I used to user server software on PCs I had for desktops years ago and they work just find for most things.
