    We are looking into getting new machines and are wondering how MC 2018.11 works with Windows 10.

    We switched to Win10 a long time ago and never looked back.
    Yes it has it's quirks and weirdnesses but overall it's an improvement over Win7, especially performance wise.
    When you're using a never version of MC I think you should go with Win10.

    as painful as it will be, Avid will need to drop support for Windows 7 at some point. Mainstream support from Microsoft ended in 2015! Security updates will be delivered until january 14th, 2020.

     

    If you are still deploying Windows 7 clients today, you have 13.5 months to plan and deploy windows 10 before you will no longer recieve security updates.  

     

    FWIW, Adobe has already announced that future releases of Creative Cloud will no longer run on windows 7.
