Why don't you ask Microsoft customer service? I'm sure they have the answer because they are the people whom making the OS.

Better or not is a moot point. For all intents and purposes Windows 8 is a dead product. It was a total failure for Microsoft and they have replaced it much sooner than would be normal for them, with Windows 10. In order to get everybody on the same platform (easier for Microsoft and in line with their ultimate strategy, whatever that might be) they are offering a free upgrade for a limited time. In your case there is absolutely no reason to stick with Windows 8 - there will be no development of the O/S, and there is no future in it.

Basically Windows 8 is to Windows 10 as Windows 7 was to Vista - very much based on the same programming but with changes made that (mostly) address customer's dissatisfaction with the "radical changes" presented with the first version listed. Would you stick with Vista if there was a free Windows 7 upgrade available?

I think it is. 8 and 8.1 were a somewhat broken interface and the changes were too radical. 10 fixes this by brining my 7 like features back like a start menu. I have been telling people this. If I had 8 I would upgrade with little to no thought, If I had 7 and liked it then there is no rush to upgrade. 10 is a more secure OS for most people. If it was my upgrade and my tablet was upgradeable with good results I would upgrade. You can turn down/off most of the privacy stuff that people were up in arms about early on.
