I downgraded to 8.1 and that was just way more problematic. No icons on desktop, control panel wouldn't open, start menu tiles were non existent (had to use an external monitor and click the desktop on the specified monitor to even get to the desktop). I wiped the drive and did a clean install and it has been OK. Performance seems about on par with 8.1 but I had to disable way too many options to keep my data from being collected.

That said, I will retain windows 8, not 8.1, enterprise on my desktop since it cannot be updated to 8.1 or 10 without a clean install. Haven't done a windows update since 2013 and have never had any issues with my system so far.

I haven't used Windows update since early Xp. I install updates selectively since Win 98, and I've never used auto update in my life.
I have no nags about Win 10 either.

All my systems have run flawlessly for the last 16 years. Flawless. Zero issues since i can even remember. Win 98 BSODs perhaps. I ran Windows xp for 11 years on sp2. Updates for the sake of updates are over rated. I read them and if they apply to me i may get them. Otherwise nah. Perhaps you say you have no problems either, fine. Excellent. I hope you don't have problems. But you might be clogging up your OS, registry and disk space with stuff you don't need or wouldn't have to worry about anyway. I prefer running a lean OS.

I'm not recommending everyone just throw caution to the wind. Everyone has uses that are different. But since i have done it this way for about 20 years, and never reformatted a drive just for the sake of reformatting and never really have any problems whatsoever with any of my pcs or OS installs as far as running stable and or as fast as the day i built them for 3-6 years straight on the same install, i'll keep doing it that way until that changes.

Even if i ever did have a problem or get hacked or whatever, 16+ years of problem free computing not counting the infamous Win 98 BSODs it's pretty damn good odds if you ask me.

Win 10 will never be on my machine in the form it is now. Certainly not till after 2020. First it's hideous. Second it goes against everything i am and always have been. Third I don't like nor want it's "features" save for DX12. I don't care about Apps or Windows Store, or Cortana, or Telemetry or the forced Adware that it is. I hardly ever use Windows Search in my OS, let alone need some stupid Cortana. I know what's on my machine, every folder and where to find it. Most of it is on my desktop or quick launch. DX12 i can go without for good awhile. I skipped DX10 and Vista, Windows 8 Windows 8.1 and only upgraded to Win 7 from Xp three years ago out of pure necessity, i didn't even want to, i loved my Xp after skinning and tweaking it for years. It was perfect. Held on to the very end and until there was enough tweaks to make Win 7 tolerable.

I don't even know what Win 7 looks like stock anymore, i downloaded tweaks and stuff prior to install and changed it all when i installed it so i never have used it stock. I had to tweak the crap out of Win Xp as well, i hated Xp stock. Win 10 is much too far gone from anything i would ever put purposely on my desktop. Win 10 looks like Win 8 and a tablet got aids and had an abortion.

I know many people have different ideas than MS has had for a long time about functionality, looks, and the meaning of "user friendly". If you install Win 10 on your PC it doesn't belong to you any more. It belongs to MS and the government whenever they would like to reach into your pants if you install it. You can certainly disable a lot of that stuff, but you have to keep up on it and make sure they aren't turning it back on. They don't want you to disable it and therefore they will be diligent about it until you are beaten down and just give up. I prefer to not even play that game in the first place.

I regularly go through my app Data and through my system to clean out old files and unwanted ones that may have been lingering around from an old install. I try my best and install every app outside of my C drive just to distribute the work load between multiple SSDs, having a total of 5 of them in my system.

I don't see the point of updating my OS if I don't run into any issues. Only problematic software I have encountered is the damned Razer Synapse rubbish.
