It depends what programs you use and, in part, on
the precautions you take and on how you use your computer.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Microsoft does it again
You can't live in the dark ages forever. At some point,some program on which
you rely for your daily online or computational existence will cease to function
in Windows 7, or some bit of nastiness will get past your Windows 7-only
defenses, and you'll wind up being asimilated into the Windows 10 collective. It
happened to me in early 2017. I couldn't go back if I wanted to any more. Too
many programs I require are now being supported and actively developed for
Windows 10 only, and some just plain don't function correctly, if at all, on
Windows 7 any more.

Yet another reason to avoid updating to Windows 10 as long as
possible. If your Windows 7 machine still does everything you need it to
do, there is really no good reason to upgrade to Windows 10 unless your the
type who enjoys aggravation.

I really don't think people should apply any

Windows 10. If Microsoft becomes reliable in the quality of its
updates again, this caution may not be necessary but I think it is
now. This is one more reason why.
I'm not sure where you can check to see if
problems have been found with updates but others may know. I'm also
not sure if this caution should extend to all versions of Windows or just be
used with Windows 10.
