I have a notification that I can get Windows 10 for free from Microsoft.
Forums say this is a good thing, but some say this will become a subscription sort of thing.
I HATE —really absolutely positively HATE— windows 8.X. Can’t stand it. Hate the tiles, Hate the whole fucking thing. It’s probably great in a tablet, but I’m using a laptop.
So if I upgrade, to 10, what is it like….More like 8, or can it be like 7? And if I DON’T upgrade, then what? At some point next year or whatever I can’t use my machine and haveta upgrade anyway? (or buy a new machine or whatever?)
(knowledgeable) Advice is sought.
Please, don’t advise me to go Linux.
ETA: Is Microsoft gonna continue to support 7 after 10 comes down the pike? Or will those of us who
choose to stay in the Dark Ages fail to take the upgrade when offered to 10 (free) get screwed later?
Enquiring minds wanno know and all that.
