The really weird cases are
These failures can run the 10tp and have without issues besides the normal bugs...
Then fail to upgrade though the update system and rolling back makes the 7 system not genuine :/
Or just flat out error out saying not compatible

Microsoft does have a well-hidden troubleshooter package, KB3073930, which allows you to hide or block Windows Updates and, crucially, driver updates.

I have no idea whatsoever if it is wonderful or horrible.

From what I've heard, it's a bit flaky and is limited in operation. It's moot point for me anyway because other issues I have with Win 10 are deal breakers anyway.

After using Windows 10 practically daily since last October, I feel like I know its strengths and weaknesses quite well. After updating a separate Windows 8.1 partition (separate license from my Windows 7 installation) to Windows 10 'release', I am dual booting it with 7 - I'm considering turning back on 'receive new builds', but maybe I'll just sit tight. In any case Windows 7 is and will remain my main workplace for the life of this machine.

I haven't found many, if any, advantages to Windows 10 over 7 or 8.1, since I am exclusively a desktop user and have no use for touch features and so on. I see none of the performance increase that some people report. I find most of the new features are 'different' more than they are 'improvements'.

To be honest, the aesthetics of Win10 leave me cold - I greatly prefer the look and feel of Windows 7. Some folks seem to crave change for change's own sake (oh! it looks so fresh and new!). I'm not against change at all, if it's for the better. The UI of Win10 IN MY OPINION is not.

Finally, I have tried, really really tried, to like the Apps and work them into my routine, and while some of them are almost useful, most seem to have one or more fatal flaws for my needs. Granted, they should be more useful in a touch-screen situation, but for a full screen/keyboard guy like myself, they offer me essentially less than nothing - old-school desktop (Win32) apps are an order of magnitude more useful. Knowing they're there behind the desktop, as it were, is actually somewhat irksome - and I know I'm not the only person who feels that way. But I'm sure they will continue to improve (they've come quite a ways already), and I can see how they would work in a touch-screen context.

Anyway, that's my considered opinion at this time. Windows 10 will continue to evolve, MS will take on board user feedback, and who knows how it will shake out. In any case, my next computer will no doubt have Win10 on it, and I know that I can live with it and work with it. I just prefer Windows 7.
