    I used dosbox on 10 (10240), Doom 2 works fine, can't say about other games (it's the only one OLD game which i have).
    P.S.
    My opinion: unfortunately win 10 will be better than 8/8.1 but much worse than 7, because of one little problem (auto updates)
    users don't have, and will not get the options to choose what updates they want/need, and will get all of them without any notifications (trust me, it will be a real problem after 29th of July).
    Sometimes i think that Microsoft has made their new OS for "blondes" that actually scares me a lot

    Sorry for my English - it's not my fault, it's all google.

    I constantly get an unwanted (and unremoveable) pop up ad breathlessly telling me I can get Windows 10 for free (!)and reserve my copy now (!). I assume this is Microsoft's way of testing the product for bugs which is OK I suppose but I heard that after one year you have to buy it and cannot return to your old OS. True?

    I'll stick with 8.1, it's been OK for me

    If you want rid of the prompt to reserve windows 10 then you need to uninstall the update named KB3035583.

    Go to Programs and Features in the control panel, click on view installed updates, and then find KB3035583 (it's easy using the search box at the top right of the screen.) Once found right click it to uninstall and reboot when prompted.

    You'll not be bothered about Windows 10 now.

    If you upgrade to Windows 10 inside the first year then it is free for you to use for as long as you like. If you don't upgrade in the first year and later decide you want Windows 10, then you'll have to pay for it.

    Personally I would reserve your copy so you'll always have Windows 10 for free should you want it, and then uninstall the update I mentioned above.

    No. The testing period has come to an end although there will be another round for a major upgrade in the future. the 1 year for free is that if you have a genuine Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 license, you can receive Windows 10 for free via the upgrade route and it is yours to keep. If you don't claim the offer within one year, then you must buy an upgrade license if you wish to get Windows 10.

    As with all OS installations, it wipes out your previous one. Every single upgrade tells you to have a backup plan ready (which is best practice).

    Your bitterness, I will dispel

    I've upgraded via ISO and the built-in upgrade. On restart when the setup should have launched I got a boot error ending up by being forced to make a fresh install. Luckily I've expected something like this happens and so I was prepared.

    I recommend a complete backup before upgrading including a rescue disk but again there is no need to upgrade NOW. There are no DX12 games and you still need a DX12 graphic card and the free upgrade is available for 1 year.

    I just did because I had to reinstall my OS so or so and I'm thankful about the reset option Windows 8 and Windows 10 have which replaces a fresh install because it not only uninstall all apps but also clean the registry and appdata folder completely so yeah, its nearly as good as a fresh install. So I decided to choose Windows 10 instead of Windows 7 again.
