Win 10 has no windows media centre which is a biggie if you use xbox as a media extender and dont want a alternative device.

While my smart tv can access pc based media it doesnt look as good or is as easy to use

yes

yes, here www.microsoft.com/windows10


read that, not hugely convincing


no worries, no ones forcing you to upgrade to Windows 10 if you think there is no value your Windows 7 machine doesn't blow up.

But just remember Windows 7 was released in 2009, it was designed 3 years before that and it is already out of mainstream support and extended support will end in 2019

By July 29 it will have already been out there for many months.

As for Media Centre, there is alternatives built into Windows 10, I had no issues sharing media with my Xbox One

I switched from WMC to Kodi for playing media from a netbook. Works really well for me. Even corrected the TV overscan problem! Works well in win 10, too.

 apologies I wasn't clear enough,  I do that bad habit, anyway what I was trying to say was that the following on from what I have seen over the last few months of Insider testing the
final release candidate for Windows 10 should be a very good release.

Jase2985: I havent really been following anything to do with windows 10, but got notification on both my Win 7 and Win 8.1 devices when i ran windows update today.

What i want to know is, will i benefit at all from an update to windows 10? is it worth it?

is there anywhere that has a good rundown on the improved features over the older versions of windows?

I agree with you.  This last release was very good. Just testing Office 2016 now.   Doesn't look really much different to Office 2013
