Fear? Not much, no. But if it ain't broke - and it isn't - why "fix" it? At an absolute minimum, I would have the learning curve to contend with. Then I've got to do all that research to find out how to STOP Win10 telling MS everything I'm doing. (Not paranoid, but even on a fast broadband I don't want everything clogging up when it's of zero value to me, and sometimes I'm on a metered connection). At worst - and there are plenty who've experienced this, even if it is a small percentage - my pc becomes unuseable, (due to non-startable, or hardware incompatabilities, or driver issues, or needing to upgrade other components I rely on). Plus there's the financial cost of an upgrade license.

At some point I'll presumably need to replace my 4-year old machine, and then I'll almost certainly take the grief of learning Windows all over again. (And certainly the grief of re-installing all the tools I use, and at that point "upgrading" to VS2017 (so long as it can still run all my legacy solutions unchanged). Until then, no thanks.
