As for my experience with Windows 10, I have yet to encounter an issue that I couldn't resolve with a quick Google search, or just messing out with prior knowledge.
I've not encountered majority of the issues that people post about. Such as missing drivers for hardware, failure to activate, BSoD's, etc.
Don't get me wrong, I do have my personally quirks that I would change about the OS, or wish was different, but it definitely is a lot better than Windows 8.x, and possibly even Windows 7.
If you want to try it out to make sure you'd personally like it, I'd suggest dual booting it before actually upgrading your main machine. That should let you see accurately how it will run for you.
Yeah, dual booting Windows 10 is the best way for someone skeptical about the upgrade to check it out effectively.Thanks for your quick response, Cakes.
I might consider taking your advice on dual-booting, thank you.
This is a plausible option to take. However, dual booting is definitely safer. If he upgrades his Windows 7 install and encounters an issue where his OS is unusable, he won't be able to revert back to Windows 7 via the utility. If he encounters the same type of issue on a dual booted copy, his Windows 7 partition will be safe.T
The free windows 10 upgrade gives you a month free to revert beck to windows 7, and If you make a backup you can restore to that to.
