Although I dislike Microsoft’s hostile approach to getting us all on to Windows 10.
The only answer I can provide to this question is give it a try while it is free.
Make sure that you do a full system backup, then let Windows Update do it thing.
If you do not like it, then you have 30 days to do a simple rollback.
I have had Windows 10 for just under 2 years and on my Quad-Core 4GB RAM HP Laptop, it has been great (except for the time it decided to update the OS during a meeting).
I have found that machines older than 5 years tend to struggle, which could be related to the hardware
A well spec’d machine should alleviate any pain during the Windows 10 transition
- i3 or i5 Processor
- 4GB Ram
- Solid State Hard Disk (or a new hard disk)

However, if you do not want to take the plunge, but Windows keeps on bugging you to upgrade,
then there are a few tweaks that can be made to silence it.
