Very reasonable decision. In a few words, you confirmed why people, whose PCs are Win10-compatible, intentionally decide to keep 8.1 as long as possible.

Only 29 months of support left. Shame that Microsoft is so obsessed with features that it neglects quality and reliability. Windows 8.1 does not cause its users to be filled with dread as each Patch Tuesday approaches.
