Win 10 'upgrade' is it worth the effort?

Benboben asked
Last Modified: 2016-08-22
I have several desktop win7 64bit machines, and like and am familiar with win7, a lot of programs ive got are older stuff, and im not a fan of upgrading just for the hell of it, as in my experience you often run into problems that don't compensate for those new features that you didnt need !,, however with the win10 upgrade nags telling me I only have got a few days, im wondering if i should bite the bullet on one machine and see how it goes..

One question, if i decide to try and roll back to win7, is there a way to do this independent of ms upgrade? it seems from some posts you only have 30 days to revert, also seen some posts on here where people have had problems after the 'upgrade'

Thoughts please experts,, what's your real world experience on this?
