Also you might as well get Windows 10, since there are developers releasing newer games only on Win 10 platforms, especially to utilize the Win 10 + XBox One crossover.

If you have invested in a Microsoft Office package and will upgrade from Windows 7 to 10, be aware your Office program will be kaput. 

I installed/upgraded to Windows 10, but changed it back to Windows 7. You get screwed with needing to buy another Office package, and that's no small amount to coin. My Office package is the full monty, with everything. Not the small package with just 3 applications.

 

That is why I just pay for the $10 a month to have full Office and all its updates/upgrades for free.

Windows 10 is a must, great games and more.

Keeping windows 7 is like living in the stone age.

Soon you will be extinct, like the next patch update.

Having just purchased a new computer this week, due to an electrical storm that was nearly a direct hit on the house, and yes the surge protector got fried too, running windows 10 finally. It works just fine and you have a few things to get used to with the new format. The good thing about it is that uses less resources in the background compared to Windows 7. So far absolutely no issues with the operating system so far.

I would agree with this...  Its stable, light, fast...  Very good at manging resources and optimized for multi-core porcessors.

 

I am pleased with my move from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro.

 

The only issue - and its a huge concern for me - is the insidious Orwellian big-brother aspect of the OS; it can be minimized but its there.

If you go through the settings you can turn off all sharing, and if you're not silly enough to use a Microsoft account, and continue to use a local account you will have no real sharing going on outside of system performance, and errors if you so choose to allow.

WOW
