Many do that.
But here I tend to use a more server oriented OS. For example I added an Intel NUC to the home network and it's running some other OS. But W10 does share files, printers so as a server I guess it will do.
Great, I'm glad I can use W10 :)
That's good to know as it's still not too late for me to get the free Windows 10 upgrade At the same time, I didn't really want to go down the 'professional Windows server OS' route as this can be a bit costly
That free upgrade is based on what you have now.
What do you have now? Maybe no upgrade is required.
What I have now
I have Windows 7 Home 64-bit. I know I can set-up a home-group-network thingy with it, but have been told that Win-10 would be better. Dunno.
While I like W10, W7 works too.
And it's years before it patch support ends. The other thing about your W7 license and I'm taking a guess here is it's a retail version which is SPECIAL in one regard. The retail version allows you to move from PC to PC without a lock on the license. So if your server goes up in smoke you can install W7 and keep going. That "free" W10 upgrade so far and the way I read it too LOCKS to the hardware and loses the W7 Retail feature of changing PCs.
If you have a retail W7. Use it.
Google up NEVER10 and GWX to keep it that way.
