I'm kind of comfortable with 7 right now, and I'm unsure of if it's worth it to upgrade. To anyone who might know more than I do, should I make the jump? I'm concerned about compatibility issues and after the debacle that was Windows 8, I'm not sure if I like the changes they've made.

I'm on 7 and plan on staying. There are apparently steps you can take to stop 10 from spying on you, but why bother when 7 works fine.

I'm on 8 on my laptop so I'll definitely switch to 10 as soon as I can.

The only way 10 is better than 7 is that the file copy is about a million times faster. If you don't copy a lot files stick with 7. If you have 8 then upgrade unless it's a touch enabled device then its a wash

Do not change until you are absolutely forced to. That's my philosophy. As soon as I cave and update Java, they just want me to update Java again! How many Java upgrades do you people need?!

Java has a lot of security vulnerabilities and I would recommend updating it always unless you have an app that requires a specific version to run.

I upgraded from Windows 7. I have an older computer that was having issues even after a complete factory reset, and somehow Windows 10 resolved those issues. A friend of mine reports similar success with his two older laptops. Logs had a forced upgrade from Windows 8 to 10 on his Surface Pro 3 and hates it. YMMV

There's an option to bring the start screen back if that's what he misses.

Is there an option to make it not a terrible steaming pile of crap that was designed to make it easy for geriatrics to use?

the start screen is fine if you're on a touch enabled device. its what it was designed for. the problem was they tried to make everyone use it for some reason.

i actually think live tiles is kind of a neat idea tbqh

im actually enjoying windows 10. it was a little jarring at first since i went from 7 to 10 without any practice with those tile things but once i learned to wrangle them and customise what i wanted it's been superb.

more of that!
