So now would be a good time to do a full image backup!
Tomorrow I will image it with my Acronis True Image 2015 ISO on USB. Once all installed I will have it continually imaging to NAS using Acronis True Image 2016. Incrementally and consolidating every 30 days.

Well, I'm about to install Visual Studio on my restored win7 install. Is there anything about vs15 (community edition) I should know about? Should I bother installing VS2013 "just in case"?

I've twice installed it and twice uninstalled it (and, btw, uninstalling takes just as long...) - and am sticking to 2012 for now. It's ok, I guess, I just don't like the way it seems to push you towards the cloud all the time. Once it wouldn't even load because it said it couldn't connect to my Microsoft account... even though that resolved itself in the end, that was the final straw for me.
My caveat is that uninstalling it can be impossible.
I had it on a VM which would not run the uninstall at all. It would just blink away when you tried to uninstall. I needed diskspace so I finally just brute-force deleted it.
At the time I Googled for answers about it and this problem of uninstalling is more prevalent and more painful than I'd ever expected.
I agree .I had terrible problems with visual studio 2015 and a lot of compatibility issues.I had projects in VS 2010 and VS 2012 and I was getting so many errors cause of compatibility.I think VS 2012 is the most mature.
I like VS2015 Community Edition. It's a little slower than VS2012, but not to the extent that it bothers me, but I suppose the speed of your machine is important. It has some nice new features that I like. Projects created in 2015 can be opened unaltered in 2012 and vice versa. But I believe projects created in versions before 2012 will be permanently modified on loading.
Update 1 ruined VS2015 for me. Constant crashes, windows that wouldn't open, etc.
After uninstalling Update 1 everything was fine (again).
The only problem I have with VS2015 is that it is slooooooow.
Let me rephrase that: It's SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!
In case you didn't get the message, it's really very very very very very very very very SLOW.
