Re: using win 7 after january 2020

I had to upgrade to ten. My system got too old. Back in 2016 when you got this free trial to try ten. I don’t know if my old acer was able to handle it. It had burned out ports. Plus the sound card got burned out. I do banking online. That’s why I did upgrade to ten. Even if 7 was not going to be supported next year. I was going to leave it anyway for that reason!

To be honest, if you have a coppy of windows 7 and use anything from an intel 530 to an intel 6th gen 6000 series, unless you really want win10 I wouldn't bother with win10.
Especially if you have older hardware, a single hard drive, etc.
Now if you have an ssd or maybe a duel drive system, maybe its worth wile.
And if you have a newer ac dule wireless system and do use a dule capible router you probably should do this as well.
I have just updated to fibre mind you, and after adjusting my channels and frequency ranges and filters for certain ranges, I have increased my download speed from 36mbps to 75mbps, its not all of the 105mbps I can use via lan but its quite fast.
True on the other side I lost 2mbps on the upload stream but we can't have everything.
The other reason you wouldd want win10 on a new device would be simply because the new multiband wireless cards can support the upper range a bit better, my old n only wireless device said it could support upper ranges but it became unstable at that range, we will see exactly what that means, however even if that becomes the case, my wireless extender does not change channels or at least you can't do that manually, but its retuned to sub channel5 offof the main unit so lets hope it remains empty of devices.
If you use an intel 7th gen and or up then you will need windows 10.
If you have an amd box from whatever they started with up to a12, you should be ok, but the new rysen series needs win10.
If you have an old out of date hd series video card then there are no newer drivers for you so you may want to either replace that or not upgrade.
You can and I have people that have but have had so many system issues they had to abandon their aging hardware.
Another thing to note when upgrading is that while previous versions of windows from win95 to windowsxp and as far as vista and 7 didn't care about hardware bar what can run on them windows 10 is quite picky especially if your hardware gets more than 4-5 years old.
Technically it supports most stuff but there are always issues with a lot of lower hardware.
I wouldn't update to win10 unless you want to and just because you can.
In fact, if you have the room, I'd get a modern windows box for secured online stuff and if you can afford it win7 or even xp for off net stuff.
There is no need for win10 if all you will be doing is listening to media, general email and brousing and if you have a smart phone you can get rid of that.
If you start to shop or bank online then maybe you should for security reasons.
Now now I have my workstation I'm not going back to my crappy 3rd generation windows 7 laptop.
I have got used to a lot of windows10's shortcomings and really love it.
Of course winaero tweaker and ribbon disabler make the os more usable as an os without destractions.
Now if you do have the ability to go fibre and or mobile wireless then win10 is essential for best out of your new gear.
But I used vdsl on win7 for ages, and dsl before that back to xp when I used dialup.
If you don't have anything faster then dsl, or vdsl or still use dialup, windows10 won't give you anything at this stage.
And to be honest while I don't have a system that uses it, I do have a coppy of windows xp and a coppy of windows 7 I own from various custom built workstations.
True windows7 won't have much use fully online but when or if I get an older box for whatever windows 10 is not going to be put on it.
