On my home desktop PC, I'm currently running LinuxMint 18. However, I'm thinking of dual-boot installing a version of Windows along side it so I can use Windows software when I need to. I'm debating on going with Windows 7 or Windows 10.
I've used both versions and personally prefer Windows 7 since it is specifically designed and optimized for a desktop PC use and experience.
Windows 8/8.1/10 seems to be designed to work on several different devices simultaneously, like for example a tablet and/or a smart phone and various other future devices (and so it probably doesn't do a good job on any of them really) and I personally wasn't impressed with using it as a desktop OS when I was testing/trying Windows 10 when it was first released.
My questions are:
1) Why should I chose Windows 10 over Windows 7 and what exactly are the main differences?
2) If I chose to go with Windows 10 instead of Windows 7, does 10 have a Windows 7 mode that I would be more comfortable in using?
