- Windows 10 is a free upgrade.
- Windows 7, 8.1 will not be supported forever.
- Windows 10 is solid and well made. After you upgrade, you can reinstall Windows 10 fresh including a format if you choose to.
- If you do not upgrade for free in time, you will be required to pay for it later this year.
- Windows 10 has a better UI than Windows 7, so remove your UI interface because it will simply slow your computer down, even if it is just a little.

After upgrading to 10 and then reformatting how would I go about doing a reinstall of 10?

Its certainly not easy, but here is the jist.

When you click to install Windows 10, if you can find it, you need to download Windows 10 to a flash drive, and make sure it's large enough to hold the entire image. Then perform the upgrade from that flash drive.
After the upgrade, you would then use the same flash drive to install Windows 10, and this time you would choose to reformat.
I would suggest doing some google searching on Microsoft sites to get the process in detail.

The thought of upgrading to Win 10 is depressing ... since my Win 7 works perfectly, and I'm very familiar with it.

I didn't do any stinking reformatting.  I just said upgrade the darn thing...  10 did all the work.

Yes, but what would you do if you ever had to rebuild it?
Now you no longer have the media to do it with.

Actually I do.  I downloaded the iso a week before (burned), and I had my data backup up on an external drive.

I'm perfectly happy with Win 7 on my laptop and Win 8.1 on my desktop but I don't want to be left with no support when the time comes.
