For Microsoft, it's a support nightmare. Luckily, it seems that despite Microsoft's plans to shut down the free upgrade service for Win7 at the end of 2017, the program seems like it's still working, at least for now. There's also greater support for customization by schools and other organizations.

Even compared to the unpopular flop that was Windows 8, Win 10 offers a lot of improvements, including the ability to snap windows to corners, meaningful summaries of what's going on with your system's storage, a way better notification system and more.
