And yet I have been seeing reports of hardware and software that won't run in Win 10.
Windows update has driver to all sort of hardware, so there is no reason that a hardware component will not work. But some already obsolete PnP devices those did not work with even windows 8 does not work with it. Some Creative sound cards and some USB network adapters fall in that list. That is not the fault of windows (either version) but of the hardware vendors that they dont have updated their drivers over years.

And all the common software nicely work with it, at least all those I use and I know others use.
I agree the fault lies partly with hardware driver and software writers and the companies that employ them not keeping up with technology but, the fact is, it still happens. I delayed upgrading from XP to Win 7 for several years because I would have had to replace a perfectly good printer and a POS scanner that otherwise still worked satisfactorily. I didn't upgrade until after I replaced both of them (the scanner because it was a POS and printer, even though it still worked fine, because I eventually couldn't get unexpired toner cartridges anymore). Just because something is older doesn't mean it still can't be usable.

I also fault MS to a degree for not taking more effort to make a new OS more backwards compatible with older software and hardware. It's not always cost effective, or even possible, to upgrade. When I still worked for corporate America, I saw three carousel storage systems in my department worth over a million dollars get scrapped because the company upgraded to XP and they couldn't upgrade the operating software to work with XP. Our machine shop had to take their CNC plasma cutter offline and run isolated from the intranet to avoid having to scrap it.

Those are beautiful! My wallpaper is set to change every hour, which is often enough for me. Having the change occur only every hour has the unexpected side effect of acting like a subtle alarm to alert me when the top of the hour arrives.
