Going to either be buying a new desktop or have one built. I have heard some say Windows 10 is good and other who say otherwise. I simply use this desktop for photos , surfing the net and not much else, few things in Word and Excell. Am I better staying with 7 Pro or Home premium or doing the Windows 8 o 10? Thanks for any direction.

Moving to w10 is going to be mandatory. I now have two computers with windows 10, and it seems fine.  Might as well bite the bullet.

I agree with what you said Del , my biggest concern is a few friends who said they really did not care for 10 and then said get something else. I could go with 7 or something else but like XP, they will go away. 

Might be I just have to go the route with 10.

I can't imagine what their issues with 10 might be.  It seems to run everything I have, including office2000.  The format of windows explorer changed some, and internet explorer replaced by something better.  But nothing much, actually.

2 thumbs up on the Windows 10, don't sweat it, the interface is slightly different than 7 but not anywhere near as bad as Windows 8 was.

Agree. 

It seems to run smoother and feels less bloated than previous versions.

Windows 10 is much more like windows 7 than windows 8 was.  8 IMO was rolled out to compete with the iPad interface.  Fine if you are Mac user, but I prefer windows and that pad style interfaces sucked as a workstation interface.  I am not sure I have heard of any major place rolling out, everyone was hanging on to 7 hoping 8 would just go away.

Sounds like I will be going the route of w10, thanks for all the replies. I know 2 fellows that use their computer's a lot and said don't get 10, did no ask why. Guess maybe they simply do not like change.

Windows 10 is good. I cleaned it up so that I never have to use any built in app and defaulted everything to my choice like windows photo viewer. (yes its still there). Stability is good except for minor IE glitches.
