|In my opinion Windows 7 is better, especially for older hardware that came with Windows 7 on it. The latest generation of machines that came with Windows 7 transition fairly well to Windows 10 and probably nearly all Windows 8 machines benefit from the upgrade to Windows 10, but most of the rest are probably better left alone. My recent build was completed just after Windows 10 came out but I loaded it with Windows 7 and have not looked back. At work I upgraded most of the Windows 8 machines to Windows 10 and they have been much better that way. I see no reason why you need to abandon Windows 7 on that machine. There are a few advantages to Windows 10 for the very latest hardware out there now that Windows 7 may just barely be able to support with drivers and that will probably continue as we go forward so futures builds along the cutting edge will need the latest OS to get the most out of it.|
I consider the issue resolved and hope all works out best for you.
