Should I upgrade to Windows 10?

The short answer: Maybe.

In general, I don’t recommend installing ANYthing that’s version anything dot zero. Wait until version something dot one fixes the bugs. Call me cautious.

In any case, I don’t recommend upgrading to Windows 10 UNLESS Microsoft has invited you to upgrade by displaying an invitation in a small pop-up in the lower right hand corner of your Windows 7 or 8 desktop. Apparently this indicates that Windows 10 drivers exist for your hardware and devices. In this case Microsoft can push the four gigabyte Windows 10 upgrade on to your PC. The choice is yours. Microsoft claims that you’ll have thirty days to rollback your new Windows 10 installation to your previous version of Windows. Caveat Upgrader: backup your files first.

If you’re using Windows 8 or 8.1, I recommend upgrading to Windows 10 as soon as possible. Or replace Windows with Linux.

If you’ve not received a Windows 10 invitation, be patient. Don’t download the four GB Windows 10 iso installation file from Microsoft. Chances are that Windows 10 drivers don’t yet exist for your hardware and devices. Allow time for Microsoft and third-party vendors to develop Windows 10 drivers. You have a year to take advantage of Microsoft’s free upgrade offer.
