suggest to use Word 2016, or stay with 2010, and why?

I would be reluctant to try JAWS 15 with Windows 10. FS claimed
substantial changes were made in JAWS 16 to make it work with Windows 10.
JAWS 18 has its problems, but JAWS 18 did, for the most part, fix the
screw-ups in track change recognition in JAWS 16 and 17.
It isn't completely fixed yet, but at least one can tell when something
has been deleted and something has been added to the main body of text.
In JAWS 16 and 17, that was broken, with JAWS mislabeling text.
Track changes still doesn't work in footnotes, but there is still a huge
Except for track change recognition, I see no reason to progress past
JAWS 17. You should be just fine with Word 2010. In fact, I would skip

It's my understanding that JAWS 16, the last release, is the first JAWS
that works with windows 10.

Currently I have Windows 7, Jaws 15, and MS Word 2010 on an HP laptop.

I will be getting a Dell laptop with an I5 processor, 8 gb of RAM, and
Windows 10 Pro with the plan to stay with Jaws 15 and MS Word 2010.

Can anybody tell me if this combination will work well together? Also,
is there a huge difference between Jaws 15 vs Jaws
18 regarding the capability of what I'm able to do?

I work from home and want to make sure that I have a setup that will
work well for at least several years without major problems or issues.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
