Answer will help me decide if I want to update to Windows 10

Chosen solution

At minimum until the end of life decided by MS for Win 7, in January 2020. And probably later (depends on APIs needed for new features), like Windows SP2 which is still supported by Mozilla.

Windows 7 is not that old, so it will likely take quite a few years until support for Windows 7 would end. Windows XP SP3 (and SP2) are still supported.
