Can someone point me in the direction of the 'real' upgrade benefits

    I could make the case that some of those do cover every Windows user, but you seem to have already made up your mind to be on the "why" side instead of the "why not side". Plus, several of those have been covered already.

    Deacon, I am always on the why side. Before I invest something or change something, I want to know what it buys me. I can read the commercials, but question is how do they apply to my case.

    I get that for most things, but we aren't talking about a career change, marriage proposal, etc. It's just an operating system, and one that works very well. It's free, so it still always goes back to my why not option. If it works as well or better, costs nothing, has a much longer support life, and has full attention and focus of hardware and software manufacturers...why not?

    My reason that I give is that it is the current OS, which means hardware and software manufacturers are testing on Windows 10 first and foremost. Staying current is always a good thing, but usually my reasoning breaks down to is it worth the cost of the upgrade. Let's say Windows 10 would have cost me $100 per computer. I can't say it is worth $400 for me to do so at home. Removing the cost variable removes the only remaining hurdle. There was no compatibility hurdle. There was no stability hurdle.

    I understand your logic. But I still go by: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    Hmm, that must be on another W7. My W7s work perfectly. And I have more than half a dozen of them.

    Check my earlier post, I outlined some problems I had with it and which are fixed in W10.

    Windows 7 is a pain in the arse to repair on a UEFI system. Windows 10 hasn't been. I'm at 25 and counting for Windows 10 systems that are 100% stable. I'm with you on if it ain't broke, don't fix it for many things...most of which have nothing to do with technology, though.

    We all just have different circumstances, different experiences and different problems. Nothing wrong with that.
