The operating system of your computer is a background thing anyway.
Unless you use something that isn't windows, chances are you are eligible for using most software.

The way I see it, if you feel comfortable with your OS, there is no reason to "upgrade" which is also kind of a gimmicky term in this context considering there really isn't any upgrade so to speak.
Maybe some tablet capability? but how many tablet users actually choose an Android device. From what I've seen, most people go with Apple.

I guess you could also look at it like this.

Think of your OS as your toolkit.
Does your current toolkit have everything you need?
If not, what does the OS you are considering have that you'd want to get your hands on?
And if so, how much of an adjustment or downright alteration are we talking?

I for one, will not be upgrading to windows 10. I am perfectly happy with Windows 7.

I do not plan to upgrade at all unless Microsoft backs down on forced updates.

I got my Windows 7 installation disk on standby in case anything goes horribly wrong or I just don't end up liking it. So I don't really got anything to lose with upgrading ASAP. Plus I got my second computer to be my test subject.

Just saw this. This is perhaps the one of the most dumbest things I've ever seen Microsoft do.

I don't play the games that come with Windows so at least in this case it won't affect me, but Microsoft has been talking up software as a service and it makes me wonder what else will get the same treatment. I really don't want to pay year to use networking functionality for example.

I get the impression MS is playing the long con with this sort of thing.

I'll wait a bit.

When I got in on the $40 Windows 8 upgrade I didn't find out 'till later it's a nasty bitch if your HDD goes out on you and you try to install to your new Hard Drive. Make sure you have a back up!

Don't do it if you find the idea of your computer automatically restarting mid-task to install updates all the time to be incredibly bothersome. I hate Windows 8 on my laptop as it gives me little to no warning if it's about to update while it's turned on, and apparently 10 is even worse in that case because for a lot of people those updates automatically downgrade their drivers and break certain functionality on their computers, and it won't even let them go to a restore point without the automatic update simply undoing their use of the restore point.

It's a mess right now. I will never upgrade to 10 unless Microsoft takes away mandatory updating. I prefer to choose what and when my computer updates.
