If you are making a jump, you might as well go ahead and jump all the way to Windows 10. After all Windows 10 is a free upgrade to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. I skipped Windows 8.1, I didn't want anything to do with it. But when they offered Windows 10 for a free upgrade, staying on Windows 7 was kinda pointless. Sure there are reasons to stay on Windows 7, but there are just as many reasons to move on.
