    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?
    I'm talking about the legality of the matter.

    My own opinion, especially since I do not have a touch screen Windows device, is that Win10 is essentially Win8.2 -- and by that, I mean that MS has made very minor changes consisting mostly of moving stuff around. For my own uses, I see no real improvement over Win8.1, but I'm still going to upgrade some of my devices.

    Why?

    Because (1) the upgrade is free, and (2) Win7 is on its last legs and I don't want to be running machines on obsolete OSs.

    Is it a "must have"? No Is it useful to have -- certainly.

    And, as others have mentioned, it's entirely a personal choice of yours whether or not to upgrade to Win10.
    Win7 has 5 more years of MS support and it's far from on its last legs. In fact for many Win7 is still a very viable option for basic daily use.

    I don't think it is. Don't have a clue why 7'ers use the term WIndows.
    It appears to be deliberate. Almost rebellious.
    No, NT, it's not deliberate at all. I am an excellent typist, and thought it was my keyboard that would add a second capital letter when I started a new sentence or typed a capitalized word. It happened quite frequently in Windows 7. Since the problem disappeared quite some time ago, I hadn't thought about it.

    However, now that I think about it, since I upgraded to Windows 8/8.1, the problem is no longer evident. And now that I think further on the matter, I will say unequivocally that you're wrong . . . it's an idiosyncrasy of Windows 7.

    Yep, and mostly because they use some legacy program or other that will not run on later operating systems.

    When our Property Owners Association stepped up to Windows 7, the Tops 2000 accounting program would no longer work accurately on our computers.

    True, but the mold is growing on it now.

    It's a typo. I didn't let go of the shift key fast enough.
    Absolutely Dreamz! For some odd reason, this has only happened to me (and very, very often) in Windows 7. It no longer happens in Windows 8/8.1 and 10.

    I agree... but heck.. there will always be late adopters.
