We could give plenty of reasons, such as...it's free, it works very well, it's the primary focus of software and hardware manufacturers now, etc, but in the end, it is your computer. It can be customized quite a bit. Many people also confuse "new and different" with "it doesn't work very well" or "I don't like it".
Personally, I feel it is what 8/8/1 should have been. It is designed well to function on a touch screen or with a traditional mouse and keyboard. 8/8.1 needed third-party apps to accomplish that.

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 32-bit 10586
You installed Windows 10 and that means that when Windows 7 goes to end of life in 2020 and not supported anymore you will have not problems installing a fully licenced version of Windows 10 that will be supported to 2025
That's assuming that in the year 2020 you still have the same computer.
