What are the problems with Windows 10?
The new browser, Edge, for one thing. There are no extensions yet, so no ad blocker ... and "it shows every stupid add on every stupid page

Also Win 10 can render hardware/software that worked fine with Win 7 or Win 8 inoperable. I've known several people who had to seriously upgrade their modem/router, thus creating additional unwanted expenses for the user. In other cases it might require upgrading drivers for hardware, that is, assuming that the drivers are available.
Windows Media Center will go to la-la-land when upgrading to Win 10 - the software will just evaporate (during the install). The replacement, as of earlier this month, is not yet available from Microsoft, and will cost about $15 (usd) to boot. If one decides to "roll back" to Win 7 or Win 8, Windows Media Center will NOT be one of those programs that will return. Once Win 10 wipes it, it's gone ... forever ... no matter what. Poof!
A new app, called Cortana, will be able to look inside your email and calendar. It can be disabled, of course, but the default is "on" and one has to opt out manually.
Too many things in the present world require us to constantly "opt out" for crap that we never "opted in" for in the first place. I find that to be a privacy issue.
Some of the key apps, like Mail and Edge, are still in their rough infancy. One would think that with a newly released OS all would be operational like it was in Win 7 or Win 8. Why release a new version to the public when everything isn't working?
And finally, forced updates. Some of the recent "forced" updates stop mid installation, then "flashes an error message, rolls back, and reboots. Then -- you guessed it -- the forced installer kicks in and crashes Windows again. Rinse, lather, repeat. Getting out of the mess involves editing the registry.

Nope ... not interested at all. I'm quite happy with Win 7 ... I was even happier with Win XP, and would have kept that version had MS kept supporting it. For me, Win 7 isn't broke ... it works ... it does everything I need it to do. I can do gaming, surf the internet, download and upload massive music files, use my MS Office 2010 suite, I can print, scan, and even use Skype.
Why fix/replace something that isn't broke? Just to have the very latest? I drive a 11 year old VW Jetta GLS. I bought it new in 2004 (before I retired) and feed it, keep up with the normal maintenance, it sits in the garage at home when not being used next to the wife's Honda CRV, which is a 2006 model.
