I would definitely recommend the upgrade - no issues with Ageod, or any other software I had previously installed. I saw on my bank's site that they are going to disallow PCs running XP from accessing the site. Down the road, 7 will follow. It is a free upgrade during the next year. Since it is going to be handled more like a service than just an OS, updates, new features, and the like will constantly be coming. Patches! We love patches here, don't we? The live tiles are fun to play with and adjust to your liking, much more sore than with 8 or 8.1. I like it. There are a few little buggy things, but all will be well. Back to Ageod, resumed a game I started before upgrading and it is playing flawlessly. 1.06 - official of CW2 is very stable!!
