For all the whinging about Ballmer over the years, things have become far, far worse under Skeletor.

Personally I have found Windows 10 to be a much better version of Windows than 8 ever was (not much to claim I will admit) and if I was running 8.1 I wouldn't think twice about upgrading.

I honestly can't see much of a reason to stay on Windows 7 or earlier if your hardware is capable of running Windows 10 and you have no software compatibility issues to prevent the upgrade.

It is probably inevitable eventually anyway.

I had a Win10 test system but it died. Sent it back under warranty and FedEx lost it. Awaiting a replacement now.

I'll upgrade one or two other systems at some point too but they are running Vista and not eligible for free handouts anyway. Guess I'll have to sit back and wait for the price to come down.

I'm mostly ok with Windows 10, now. However, I've noticed that:

When using a TV as a monitor, the Desktop Icons/Text occasionally change DPI (and cannot be restored to the proper size with 'Ctrl-mousewheel'). I have to increase the DPI above 100% manually, then revert back to 100%, in order to correct the issue.

DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1 will no longer allow the 'really' hidden devices to be shown, as in Windows 7. Microsoft says it is unnecessary and you should be able to see the 'really hidden' devices without setting the environment variable. That is NOT the case. I accessed a system with a 'Local Area Connection 2' conflict... that device does not show as a hidden device (and throws an conflict message whenever 'Local Area Connection 3' is managed.

In any case, it is handy to know that I can right-click the Start button to access the functions I routinely need, rather than have to type hints into Search/Cortana.

Recent potential concerns over re-activation requirements:
