Re: best

Since it's more an opinion than a fact, nobody "knows". You can't say more than "thinks". Some people even think Linux Mint is the best OS.

Yes it's a matter of opinion.

8.0 and 8.1 is better for modern apps. 8.1 can be tweaked for mostly using Windows desktop apps and WIndows 10 is more like WIndows 7 then 8.1 or 8.0.

I myself like to stay current so for me Windows 10 is better.

Which is best,

I don't know but my Granddaughter likes win10 over win7. Personally, I don't work with them enough to give an opinion. Win2k and linux was my thing.

I'd choose 10 for long term support.

8.x expires in 2020, 10 has no announced expiration date. I don't think that's a really big deal, but it gives 10 the edge. They both work well although I'd want Classic Shell if I went with 8.x.
Good luck.

We have 7, 8, 10 and other OSes at the offices.

All of them seem fine. But we are moving to 10 for long term support. Can't seem to find any reason not to as what we do runs fine.
