Windows 7: Windows 7 to Windows 10 Questions

Windows 7 to Windows 10 Questions

Yesterday evening, I opened up my laptop and this notification appeared on my taskbar (circled in image). Apparently, the Windows 10 upgrade is now available for users of Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 even though the release date hasn't been announced yet. For one thing, I am glad that Microsoft is giving out Windows 10 as a free upgrade for Windows 7 through 8.1 users, yet I have some questions on upgrading though.

1.) Will my files from Windows 7 still be on Windows 10 after the upgrade?
2.) Will my drivers for my laptop (for both Windows 7 and 8/8.1) would be compatible with Windows 10? (My laptop originally came with Windows 8 so I had to install drivers from a specific site in order for my laptop's devices to work with Windows 7.)
3.) Is Windows 10 still unfinished? I have the Windows 10 Insider Preview on VMware Player, and it didn't run smoothly but that may be just the Virtual Machine.

I've had some thoughts that some of these questions may be too ridiculous to be true, but I'm kind of curious so I thought I would make this post. Let me know!
