But if your Windows 7 install is fubar'ed, your going to have a fubar'ed Windows 10 install. I had a customer whose 7 needed reinstalling. She comes in one morning and 10 had installed itself (they never know how it happened). After I showed her classicshell and and how to disable some stuff she liked it. Well it BLEW UP and could not find the boot drive. I did a cleaner install of 10 (reset it, deletes old programs and keeps data). Customer has never been happier, computer runs just as good if not better than Windows 7.

TLDR Upgrade works fine for most. But a clean install is always better.

edit: PS, I'm sticking with 7, DX12 and 10 offer nothing that I need right now.
I cloned my 7 partition to a new drive and upgraded it to 10, so I can boot either one. 10 is flaking out slightly so I'll probably do a clean reinstall of it too. All my help searches seem to redirect to bing search pages instead of the real help documents on microsoft.com , and the "Get Started" app doesn't think I have an internet connection, even though everything else is happy.

My list of required tools to make 10 useable so far are: Classic Shell, 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, WinAero Tweaker, and glass8. WinAero is one I just recently discovered, and lets you fix a lot of the win10 UI mistakes like the huuuge title bars, the missing window borders, and the lack of a full color palette when choosing UI colors.
