Windows 10 solves many issues with Windows 8.1. Classic Shell is a great
addition, though you need to keep it updated because Windows 10 updates
will often break it. I was hesitant to take the free upgrade from
Windows 7 to Windows 10, but very glad I did it on all my machines. Even
paid for a couple of used Windows 7 licenses so I could upgrade from XP
to 7 and then take the free upgrade to 10.
