They're all pretty similar, in my experience. As far as more modern games go, I think Windows 10 is required to take advantage of DirectX12, provided your GPU supports it.

Is it specific games having stability issues, or just in general? Have you tried using windows 7 or 8 compatibility modes?

Meh, I'd go with 10. Sure people didn't like Win 8...ist was needlessly different and poorly implemented. But Win 10 is fine once you disable the spying bits.

If you're playing modern games Windows 10 shouldn't be the thing causing the crashing, i play quite a lot of older games on it too without much issue.

If you are playing modern games with modern computers, Windows 10 is the only option to make sure you are taking full advantage of your hardware.

I recently changed from 7 to 10 and I am quite happy with the results.

Windows 10 works, unless you wanna figure out Linux and Wine.

As for your asked:Have you tried using Windows 7 or 8 compatibility modes?

So did my Windows 10 (Upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7).But now I have a slight urge to scroll back to Windows 7.

In my opinion,Microsoft is better than them (Linux and Wine)

Mac! Apple's products are too expensive for me to consider.

As far as I know, Windows 10 would serve well for games compared to rest of them.

On my Windows 10 computer,all seems so right.The only time it went wrong was when the password failed,finally, we had to reset it.to share this skill with you.

I know this is a month old, but if you're still crashing it's likely not the fault of Win 10 and more to do with hardware possibly failing you. I've been using Win 10 for years now with no problems at all relating to the OS. A few years back I was having BSOD while playing online games and it was because of my ethernet port on my motherboard was going bad.

Windows 7 by a long shot, IMO. It's stable and steady and not buggy like W8 and W10.
