Good Morning All, I received an email this morning from PCWorld, who had an article published with a title similar to my post. The article can be found here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2952888/windows/windows-7-holdouts-why-diehard-users-refuse-to-move-to-windows-10.html#tk.nl_pcwbest Given the feedback so far on Windows 10 and the information published in the article, I'd really love to hear from the developers of flight sim software to give some insight into what they think will happen years from now as far as support for legacy OS. For example, if I vehemently refused to install Windows 10 now, given that Microsoft will support Windows 7 (security patches) up to 2020, and I wait until that year, would I be safe in buying and installing new FSX/P3D addons developed over the course of 5 years, or will the developers start changing their coding to suit only the latest OS. Right now, my personal stance on Win10 is to wait a little while until the smoke clears over the issues that are appearing right now. I know there is some pressure in the wings, so to speak, that a year from now, the ability to upgrade for free will disappear. Say I wait after that, meaning that I would have to pay for the OS, and just putt putt along with Windows 7, would it be fair to say that I could still enjoy the newer add-ons to be released. Maybe I am thinking to far ahead, but given the issues that have come up, they don't sound good to me and cause even more headaches to get a given sim to operate correctly. Thank you. -Jim
