That said, I got my copy of Win10 when I bought a reconditioned machine. So it was painless in that sense, and wasn't too hard to get used to, personally.

if I had to actually pay for Windows (eww), I'd probably just skip that and upgrade to Linux. And if you needed to continue work on Win-only software, like FP, you could just set up a dual boot. So you'd boot in to Win to do dev work, and boot in to Linux for anything involving internet connection.

Or something like that. Machines are so cheap these days that you could also maintain one as a Win dev / gaming workstation, and one as your 'internet' machine, secured by an OS you won't have to worry about being 'cut off' in the future, like Linux.
