With a risk of being off-topic. As a 60yo with over 40y of experience in IT from IBM mainframes onwards, I'd say that W10 is by far the best of the bad bunch of OS's for the desktop.
Yes, it is complex but generally much easier to use than a Linux OS Desktop and much more flexible than an Mac OS Desktop. Obviously though, this depends on what you want a desktop OS to do.
For a server, I'd choose Linux every time. But for a desktop, W10. And yes, I have them all as I still need to be current in all desktops. I currently have at least 10 desktops and servers around me (I loose track of the actual number!) in my home office - ranging from Pi2 & 3 through Linux NAS and server (old laptop), through to Linux, Mac and at least 4 different W10 laptops (of various differing levels of corporate and non-corporate configuration).
Once you are used to W10, it is W7 that looks like a child's idea of an OS rather than the other way around
As for updates - they ALL need regular updates sadly as do my mobile devices (I actively use both iOS and Android). None of them is better than another on that front. Though each has a slightly different approach and each has advantages and disadvantages.
Unfortunately, in this day-and-age, using an OS that is no longer under active support is a ticking timebomb. A bit like not using a face-mask in a public place, even if you don't care for your own safety, please at least consider other people's. Wear a mask - use a supported OS.
