Better than 8 but not any better than 7 unless you need touch screen capability. I have 10 on my portable laptop but 7 still on my home PC. I'm getting more use to 10 and perhaps will prefer it some day. Probably when Windows 12 comes out.

I guess it comes down to personal preference and a bit of conditioning. I think I'm just too used of the previous versions of Windows, and so anything new is not very welcome at first. I'm getting used to the few changes that there are though.

I got my new laptop that came with Windows 10 a couple of months ago and it's so different from the one I was using Windows 7. On top of that the search browser, Edge is not easy to use at all, and I don't know how to customize it. So frustrating.

Internet Explorer is still available - although it is sort of hidden.  Hit the Windows key, then start typing "Internet" -- it will find Internet Explorer for you - once you start it, right-click the Internet Explorer icon in the task bar and "Pin" to the task bar so you can find it easily.  You can also set it as your default browser (it should ask you if you want to do that when you start it) so EDGE won't be default.

I'm not a fan of the way Win10 handles updates either, particularly the fact that you're only able to defer them for a set period of time before you're forced to accept them. I understand why MS is doing this, but it doesn't mean I have to like it. 

 

That said, so long as you take time to fully understand the privacy settings, there's a lot to recommend Win10. IMO, the most interesting new feature (as of the recent Anniversary Update), albeit one that will only appeal to those who've had some experience with a Unix/Linux command line environment:
