The other theory I liked was that there were things that checked if the version started with 9, to check it for 95/98, and they were worried they would mess up windows 9.
Even if there is some authenticity behind that, I can't imagine that being the main reason. Don't forget they made windows 9, you don't scratch a whole project because of the name.

I stand corrected, I'm not sure why I thought that.

Also, how much better would it be to do a clean install? It would be a pain, but if it's much better, I'll just reinstall everything...

If you can handle it it's great. Why don't you install it on your new laptop?

I already installed all my programs and set up all my preferences. It would be a pain to do it again...

I'm doing it as an update I can let you know how it goes.

I absolutely hate the dreaded windows.old folder, I can always do a fresh install later.

Interesting to note that my newer laptop with a later generation (intel) processor didn't receive it.

Is there anything super exciting for those of us on Windows 10?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I don't see any good reason to upgrade, it looks like the pictures, if you want that look go for it.
