My usual 2c on this topic.
OK, here goes a MULTI-QUOTE!
I'll just keep on using Windows 10 on this machine, and if Microsoft vaporizes and turns into dust, and if my W10 install magically disappears or turns into crap on this machine, I'd probably just buckle down and learn some flavor of Linux.
Microsoft vaporizing is not terribly likely, of course, and I'll deal with it if future updates cause problems. For now, I'm happy as the proverbial clam.
My best guess - the upgrade track would be similar to 7/8.1 if you had to pay for it. Maybe a bit less for a variety of reasons...such as the slowdown in PC growth due to the adoption of mobile.
If Microsoft forced me into Edge, I'd grumble. But if they did that, a host of government agencies would be on their tails.
It's easy for many of you to take the stance you do because you like Windows 10. And that's great. But it really seems that if you are on the board and dislike Windows 10, that we're being perceived as trouble makers. Hey I tried the TP and the final and I dislike it, but I still want to see where development goes. So I keep reading, and I should be able to express my opinions.
Make no mistake, Microsoft wants Windows 10 to revitalize PC/notebook sales as part of its mission. So have the free upgrades done that? Maybe. Maybe not. So nothing wrong with looking at the numbers objectively.
A lot of folks must think W-10 is not all that great.
When compared to previous months the growth rate for W-10 dropped to under 1% for December 2015.

The buffer will open up with all the messages you clicked the plus sign for, even on previous pages.
And maybe "buckle down" was a bit much. I know today's Linux distros have graphical windowed interfaces. But...there'd still be a bit of a learning curve, even for someone like me.
But...no need for me to go that route at all, right now.
And I see you're from Hungary. After over 50 years, someone poked into my family tree, and I discovered that my great grandfather on my father's side is from Hungary. All these years, I thought his side of the family was German and English!!!
