I mean, the most customizable thing about WMP is that I can choose it to sort stuff via genre or stars or other such BS. I want to just say "This folder, D:\My Music, stream the damn thing!"

three years pass...

The little icon for Windows 10 has appeared at the bottom of my screen. I have Windows 7 Home Premium right now. I've never done this before...should I upgrade? I'm generally content with what I have.

I've read, on a couple of standard tech news sites, that we have a year for the free upgrade, and should wait a while, because lots of bugs currently. I'm satisfied too, so will wait a little while at least, for thorough reviews.

Sounds good. I don't want to be stuck with something I don't really understand.

Right now you are content because you have the right drivers for your hardware and your software does what you need with no issues of compatibility. If your setup works for you, I'd be wary of an upgrade until I knew I could run my current software and get the drivers I need. Personally, I have some old peripherals, like a 10 year old scanner, and old software like Word 2002, I have no intention of replacing, so 7 works just fine for me atm.

Yeah, generally you shouldn't upgrade unless you have a good reason to do so.

I'm gonna stick with windows 7 for a while. I'll let other people test windows 10.

This tells some of the Win 7 goodies not on Win 10 (I already use the suggested free VLS instead of Windows Media Player, usually; much more reliable) At the very end there's a hands-on Windows 10 video:

Yeah I've used VLC for around 10 years now, never going back to WMP.
