Should you upgrade to Windows 10?

maxresdefault
I‘m a Windows 7 user, and I love Windows 7.  I’m also a Google Chrome user, and I love Google Chrome.  The combination of the 2, gives me the best computer/online experience, ever.  I’ve been around Windows OS’s for a very long time, and by far Windows 7 is the best in my opinion.  Recently I was notified, by Microsoft,  for a free upgrade to Windows 10.  Windows asked me to register for the upgrade and then they would notify me when it was available.  

My first thought was, that’s unusual, Microsoft never gives operating systems away.  Possibly it has something to do with the tumultuous Windows 8. Btw, I’m one of the very few that likes Windows 8.  I bought an hp laptop with Windows 8 installed, and gave it to my mom for xmas, 2014.  So this upgrade is probably more like a patch rather than an OS installation.  

A few days ago, I noticed the Windows logo on my toolbar next to the volume control, indicating that Windows is ready to upgrade my system to Windows 10. Now the question is, do I upgrade to Windows 10?
Mom is 82, and I figured the new laptop/W-8 would give her a fresh start with brand new simple technology, huge Hard Drive capacity, she loves taking pictures and storing them on her laptop, and relieve her of the prehistoric XP, that was not being supported any longer.  NOT!  Let’s put it this way, it was a roller coaster ride. Without getting into the details, bc this post is not about Windows 8, I will say this, at the end of the day, I have respect for W-8, and I understand it.  
Having said all that, Windows 8 customer’s might want to upgrade to W-10 bc it’s an improvement over W-8, again in my opinion, making W-8 better so to speak. But for Windows 7 customers, idk, maybe you want to hold off, like any Windows operating system, it’s like the old saying, “You never know what you’ll get in a box of chocolates.” 
Well idk yet what I’m going to do.  I thought I would share this article with you because your going to be faced with this issue soon enough, if not already.  If you know Microsoft Windows like I do, you know the next upgrade might not be the best upgrade, i.e. Windows Me, Windows Vista, Windows 8.  On the other hand the upgrades from disastrous OS’s have been stupendous, i.e. Windows XP.  Enough said, I found this review on W-10 to be useful. I hope it will help you make the right decision to fit your needs. Just click the link below.

 

 

Windows 10 is what Windows 8 should have been, but it has too many rough edges to attract Windows 7 users. Continuous upgrades could change that as early as this fall
