GrammaBear,
You can upgrade for free until July 28th. After that date it will cost $119 for the Home version and $199 for the Pro version. What I've been doing is upgrading to Win 10 to register it for free, making a backup image, and then going back to Win 7. Except for a few exceptions, the upgrades have been painless. When I did run into an exception, rebooting would restore it back to the original OS. My problem was when I did a new install and not an upgrade. If you're happy with Win 7, keep it. I like it a lot better than W10.

You may wish to note that Microsoft plans to release an upgraded "Anniversary" version of Windows 10 in the fall. (August 2, 2016) The biggest things will be enhanced security (a perennial favorite), better pen computing for those who like "ink" features, but best of all, a modification of the Edge Browser to allow extensions which will make it more useful than a brick.

I'd prefer das Maschinengewehr 42... Unfortunately, verboten in CA.
In states where permitted, they cost an arm and a leg.
