Windows 10 is more 'gamer friendly' than Windows 7 as it will feature DirectX 12. I'm a gamer and like W7 and W10 just fine, as do many gamers.

Might want to learn some spelling and punctuation before you do anything else.

Got a new version of win-7 to be ready if I decide to go win-10 upgrade 76.us for 7 pro 64 bit was the cheapest way to get 10 pro instead of home.
Better than 199.us for win-10 pro
I'll just use my 7 home premium 64 as a dual boot on my new build

Not sure what to do with 8 pro upgrade :/
I may use it for a h-premium upgrading to 8 and 8.1 then to 10 but that is awfully convoluted

I have multiple copies of Windows 7 Pro, 7 Pro N, Ultimate and Ultimate N that is 20 in total plus 2 more Ultimate keys and DVD's which I got by completing training in Windows 7 @ Best Buy all those years ago. Every single one of them is worth far more to me than Windows 8 .1 or 10 would ever be. I use Media center so it is really hard to give up 7 which IS SO GOOD and as I have 2 machines dual booting with 8.1 they are the OS to be upgraded and killed off keys. There is still 5 years left on 7 and I would not be surprised if that does not get extended seeing as many businesses have just upgraded just as XP expired. I use all they keys and a bunch of other versions running a virtual machine of most Microsoft O.S. Why? Because I am a geek and I can fire up Windows 7 Basic to help figure out how to do whatever........

You aren't required to upgrade, are you? I would rather stay on 7 for the foreseeable future (as in, this is it, I'm not getting a new OS, ever). I saw the popup last week and had to go into Task Manager to kill it because there was no exit or "decline" option in the menu. I then deleted the upgrade program from C:\Windows\System32\GWX (which stands for Get Windows X -- the Roman numeral for 10). In fact, I deleted the whole folder (had to use Unlocker to force-delete a catalog file that was giving me an "access denied" message).

Hopefully this stupid thing never pops up on my computer again. Microsoft can take the last good Windows version from my cold, dead hands!

Yep well you would have a year to switch if you wish too.
But no it's not mandatory although it's what M$ wants which means little

If you upgraded from 7 to 10 and your drive dies, you`d have to start all over again from 7, where would you get the media to install 10 ?

You wouldn`t have it, because you upgraded from 7.
