Is it worth upgrading to Windows 10? 7 is offering a free upgrade. What are the pros/cons?


I'm not sure I want to take advantage of the offer. Has anyone tried Windows 10 yet? If so, what are your thoughts? I'm comfortable with Windows 7. Does the latest version provide a better user experience? Will MS Office 2007 still be compatible with Windows 10? I'd appreciate hearing your feedback. There's a little icon in my task bar inviting me to upgrade, but I'm holding off. Is 10 really any better that 7?

    David, that sounds like a lot of trouble to go through. The more I think about it, I may just stick with Windows 7. I'm fearful of problems arising that either I can't solve on my own or would have to go out of pocket to resolve. Thanx for your reply

    Thanks, Becky. I do have an extra microphone that I bought for my desktop that does not have one. I'm the only one who uses either of my computers so giving access isn't a problem either. I'm still not sure if I want to upgrade. Guess I'll ponder...

    Thank you, Stephen. You've gone into quite a bit of detail. I don't use voice commands so my mic doesn't get much use. Hopefully, it won't be affected. I still need to think about upgrading, tho. This old dog hesitates before learning new tricks! :-)

    Thanx, jefboyardee. I've decided to stick with Windows 7. I don't really think upgrading would benefit me. It has features I don't use, from what I hear. Thanx for your honest feedback. Much appreciated!
