Microsoft is so anxious to get you to upgrade your Windows 7 or 8 computers to Windows 10, that it will give it to you free. Actually MS is behaving as if they are too anxious.
I will not be recommending or supporting Windows 10 for some time. Probably never
Two major drawbacks to Windows 10
- There is no privacy. Everything on your Windows 10 PC is fair game.
- As owner of your PC, you have no control over what ever updates (read changes) Microsoft chooses to install. Especially considering Microsoft’s terrible Windows Updates of late, this is unacceptable.
Microsoft has brought to market an unfinished product that is full of gaps and issues. Not ready for prime time.
Windows 7 is the gold standard and in use by over half of the 1.5 billion computers in the world. Windows 10 will have to be distinctively superior if it is to be very successful.
There is no reason at all to rush to get Windows 10. Windows 7 has committed support through January 2020. Chances are, you will get it when you buy a new computer.
