Thanks to advice on the Guru3D forums I upgraded from Windows 7 64 to 10 based on my hardware, which you can see on the left. It was the notion of DX12 and that Windows 10 was the platform for gaming that people cited as the reason to go up, when I'd pointed out my specs for gaming included 7. Since 'upgrading' my system has had quite a few glitches and has crashed at least three times. I hadn't had a single unexplained crash on 7 in 18 months. I had a look at this article, and I have to admit I identify with a great deal of the issues pointed out. Ergo, the question has to be - is Windows 10 a bust? DX12 aside (and even then DX11 outperforms it anyway), is there any use in it, given 7's evident superiority? Is it worth my time setting up a dual boot with both so I can still have DX12 if needed but can use Windows 7 for absolutely everything else? What's your thoughts fellas? Stick with 10 or go back to 7?
