Windows 10

There are a few things to consider before upgrading to Windows 10. First of all, some older computers will not handle it. The biggest problem we've seen is some older graphics chipsets and cards are not compatible and will not display properly as the drivers are not compatible and Windows will install the basic graphic drivers. Your PC will not operate to it's full potential if your graphics are not hitting on all eight cylinders. Also, some of your older software may not work so well in Win 10.

We have had more problems from people reverting back from Win 10 to their previous operating system (you have 30 days from time of install to do this) than people going to Windows 10. Problems ranged from printer issues to unstable software. These issues can be dealt with successfully.

Upgrading to Windows 10 is not as terrifying as some make it out to be if you change a few things. Some of these changes can occur during the initial install. Windows 10 likes to send a lot of information to Microsoft and any setting that implies this needs to be disabled - read it all carefully. You can still disable these settings after the install (Link to follow) Cortana is probably the biggest blabbermouth of all as she sends just about everything you search for on the web to Bill and Melinda Gates. You can, of course, disable that function and only use her to search for things on your PC.

In conclusion we like the new Windows 10 even though it seems to run slightly slower that Windows 8.1. If you have plenty of horsepower in your PC then there shouldn't be much of a change. Even though Win 10 likes to spy on you, those issues can be eliminated as well.
