I suggest you try to roll back your OS to 7 first, then we can work to see whether or not you have a hardware problem, software problem, both, or if 10 is suitable for your PC.
Did your computer come with recovery media, ask you to make recovery media upon the very first boot after purchase, or has a recovery partition?

Are there signs posted every 5 feet on every major road that says "WARNING, crossing the road may result in death"? No, at some point people have to take responsibility for things themselves. If they can't take that responsibility, they should find someone that can.
It's simply common sense that a major upgrade may not succeed, and anyone who uses a computer should know to make backups regularly. Failing to do so is not MS's fault.
Only if they plan on doing some RAM intensive tasks. Then if the motherboard is capable of being bumped up. I say go for it, if you can get the RAM on sale.
Regarding backups the ability to create system images and reinstall the OS if the upgrade fails is beyond what the average user is capable of. And no it's not Microsoft's fault, but wouldn't you agree that it's in Microsoft's interest that people succeed and over all have a positive perception?
