I did a search on this subject and the most recent advise was from 5 months ago, (10/2016), which if I could summarize would be, "Don't do it". I have Win-7 Home Edition. Other than the annoying reminder every day to upgrade, which I have been ignoring, I'm wondering if it there is any advantage at all. I'm no longer getting any patches or anything else from MS, other than the daily reminder, so I assume MS support for Win-7 has terminated.
At some point very soon I will be connecting an ISX-224 type camera to my laptop. I haven't decided which one yet...the cheap one from AliExpress uses USB 2.0 and and the more expensive ones use 3.0 and I run a couple of legacy QB64 & QBasic manual setting circle alignment programs that I wrote myself in a DOS window as well. I'll want to continue to use these programs and I suppose I'll be using Sharpcap with the camera. No imaging or other AP is anticipated. Anything DSC related, will be run with either my phone or android tablet but I do use Cartes du Ciel for pre-planning observing sessions on occasion.
In general, I'm a strong believer in "if the wheel ain't broke...." but because I'm no longer getting any security patches I'm a little concerned since my entire financial life is on this laptop and I need to keep this computer protected. So is there any benefit at all to upgrading given the current state of Win-10 as it relates to astronomy related programs?
