Windows 10 - a rock and a hard place
Hello, new to the forum.
I'm experienced with computers, but now find myself in a dilemma.
I'm not a big Windows 10 fan (not here to debate that) that's why I never upgraded and have a number of systems running Win 7 Pro 64.
I recently bought a new system because my primary system - an I5 - was getting old, but most importantly because new Win 7 systems are getting hard to find. I got a decent system - a 6th gen I7 running Win 7 pro 64. But with the system I also got a license and disk for Win 10.
That's my dilemma - what to do. I run some older software. I have Adobe CC but still primarily use Photoshop CS5. I also use Corel painter and lots of plugins, old and new. But a concern is color management - I use an old but trustworthy DTP-94 puck with Monaco EZ Color which is about 10 years old. I barely got the drivers to work on Win 7. I suspect Win 10 will be a problem.
I know enough about computers to know if I ever upgrade to Win 10, the best way is a clean install which would mean wiping the harddrive and starting all over again - what a pain.
So my question is simple - generally speaking, for a person doing lots of graphic work with old and new apps, plugins and utilities, is Win 10 ready for prime time yet or would it be best to wait for a little while?
