Do I have to upgrade to Windows 10?

Episode 1246 (27:11)

Dave from Riverside, CA
Microsoft Windows 10

Dave is being invited to upgrade to Windows 10, and it's bugging him about it. He's happy with Windows 7, though. Leo says Dave will have up to July 29, 2016 to get the free upgrade. Should he upgrade? Leo says there have been a lot of improvements over Windows 7, and it's far superior to Windows 8. It's more secure and faster. But Windows 7 is pretty rock solid and is going to be supported until 2020.

Leo says that if Dave decides to accept the invitation, and he doesn't like it, he can roll back to Windows 7 within 30 days. Dave can wait to download it also. Leo is very happy with Windows 10, but as the saying goes "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." The invitation popup won't go away. There is a hotfix that will get rid of it, but Microsoft just reinstalls it with updates.
