ï¿½ 1) look into setting up ESU on the Win 7 machine
ï¿½ 2) consider doing an upgrade to Win 10 in the near future
Initially I saw many people had issues with Win 10 changing
things around during updates.ï¿½
I am running Win 7 on a Dell 990 which has a quad-core CPU and

Runs Win 10 with no problem. Even supports two monitors without
a separate video card. Been running JTAlert and WSJT-X on it for
months with no trouble.
As a caveat, though, keep these two facts in mind:
1. Win 10 is near end-of-support (May 2021) for versions 1909
2. My 990 would not accept the upgrade to take it above vers
1909, therefore leaving it about to stop receiving updates.
I've been running Win 10 on several PCs since they released the
free upgrade years ago. Other than the problem with the version
upgrade I've not had a single crash or BSD happen. The "End-of
Support" issue means the OS will no longer receive critical
security or Windows apps updates. The OS will still work and
Defender will still receive antivirus data.
In general, Win 10 has been MUCH more stable than Win 7 or 8.
The final decision, of course, is yours.
