Default OS: Win 7. Should I? 1st build

Almost done buying everything needed for my best build.
Currently on our home PC and laptop we have Win. 8.
We are def. not fans. And we do use the option to mimic Win 7.
My wife and I both use Win. 7 @ work and are very comfortable with it.
How crazy would I be if I installed Win. 7 (64bit prof).
I understand 10 is around the corner. And if 10 turns out to be something great I will get 10. But until then.....
Now what is this I hear about Windows no longer offering updates for Win 7?

Thanks everyone


*Would you buy a Win 7. software package in box from someone online or CL?

Windows 10 will be available as a free upgrade for a 1 year period from Windows 7 and Windows 8. After the 1 year period, you'll have to buy a license as you would with Windows normally.

Personally I like Windows 8 - both my wife and I use it. I have a start menu mod is all so I don't prefer the Metro Screen.
