    Windows 10!

They don't really care about the "must have" stuff. They just want familiarity and dependability in their OS.

    When it comes to Windows 7, I'm not sure if obsolete is the right word. You can still use an unsupported OS, as many people are still using XP. The OS is only obsolete, if it stops working completely. Believe me, people will use Windows 7, long after support has stopped. So, I wouldn't worry about using Windows 7 being obsolete.
    how do people use XP with Internet access now? Does Avast+Windows Firewall keep them relativity secure?

    I don't believe anything would keep XP secure.

    As I've stated many times, Windows 7 is the new Windows XP.

    For those that don't like Windows 8.x, let alone 10. It will be. It will be the next stopping point for those that don't want to move on to the Modern UI, for what ever reason.

    WIndows 10

    Some people use personal computers as a hobby and want the latest and greatest OS available. They are in it for the OS itself. Others just want to run their programs on it to achieve an end result and receive updates to ward off viruses and bad code. If your programs will run on Windows 7 then you won't need to replace it until Microsoft drops support. I don't see anything in Windows 10 that would make a business jump at it other than it is free. If it wasn't free many businesses would pass it up. Why pay for training on a new OS when programs that run your business work very well on Windows 7? If you have ever been on a factory floor and witnessed a Windows based computer being used you will understand why change can be expensive and can cause problems for employees. The computer for them is a tool and they do not care what the OS is as long as they can figure out what they're doing.

    Windows 7 will still be running on one rig here because of hardware compatibility. It's an excellent OS. At the end I'll be running Server 2k3 R2, W7, W8.1, W10 RTM and W10 Insider...

    Windows 10 isn't free for businesses, Looey.

    Then Windows 10 won't be adopted by many of them. There is nothing in it for them. I know of lawyer and Dentist offices that I have visited who use home versions of Windows and Office. They haven't purchased contracts from Microsoft for an X number of licenses. You would be surprised if you check out small businesses in your area and ask them about how they feel about upgrading to every OS Microsoft pumps out. You will hear why should I?
