Default best Windows OS for feed

i searched this forum and could not find / may have over read a post regarding what Windows software was recommended for running the broadcasting software.

I am purchasing a new computer to run one of the feeds at a different location from my house. Should i buy a computer with Windows 7 or Windows 10 already loaded?

thank you in advance for the comments and assistance.

The software is lightweight so anything should be fine. I would go with 10 so you have the newest OS and Microsoft will provide updates for the longest.

I have an old XP Embedded thin client but I'm moving to a Win 7 computer. It's an older computer that 10 wouldn't run great on.
