I would say that rumours about accessibility issues with Windows 10 are greatly exaggerated.

hello all, 
am currently running win7 on my desktop machine, but seemingly support for this is going to end this coming january. 
not only do I not really want windows 10, as I have just heard so many stories of access issues with it, especially when it comes to those pesky ribbon menus, but as my current screenreader is window-eyes, that seemingly won't work with it as well. 
so if I have got to change both my os and screenreader, rather than the win10 rout, I wondered if there is any sort of android desktop machine? 
as at least having used that on my samsung phone, if there is, I thought that may be a better rout to go. 
if that's not possible, another option that I am considering, is something like chrome os, again, if I can find that on a desktop machine, so am wondering if anyone has had any experience of this with it's screenreader, and range of apps? 
as I have heard a few good things about this, but don't really know that much about it.
