Basically the title
I’ve been proudly using Windows 7 on my laptop ever since I got it
@Naberrie, I hope I never have to go to win 10 until my computer dies. Which hopefully won't happen for another few years.
@Naberrie, the joke here is, that by the end of this January, Microsoft will stop supporting windows 7. Meaning many applications you use on window 7 will cease to update, and may no longer function if it requires a connection to the internet.
I know this, because our main accounting application program at work no longer supports Microsoft 7 (for the reason I said above), and everyone at work is currently going through this transition of switching over to 10.
Windows 10 is great, don't @ me
@Janice In Accounting, ive been running win 10 since they offered it as a free upgrade. There were some issues at first, but i now have 0 issues with it
@Janice In Accounting,
@Janice In Accounting, Windows 10 is why I switched to Linux
@Elmato, not windows 8?
@Killing instincts, Windows 8 is still windows
@Elmato, Windows 8 is significantly worse than Windows 10 though
@AnotherLurker, Yes, but windows to me is still windows. 95% of my games work on Linux thanks to proton, so I'm good on linux
@Janice In Accounting, it is, you just gotta turn off like 80 stupid settings that needlessly slow down your system and share information.
Source is Jahy-sama
Windows 10 really is amazing. Most people only hate it because either they got used to windows 7 and don’t like change, or they have old peripherals that are not supported by Windows 10 (in other words, outdated obsolete hardware).
@lojosol, I hate windows 10 cuz every update causes a new issue to pop up. My hardware is recent...like 2017 recent. I switched to Linux and never looked back
Rather go back to windows xp.
@Lord Maximius, XP was the best
I've got 7 on my desktop and 10 oh my laptop (because it cane with 8 before) and while 10 isn't terrible, I just find 7 much easier to navigate through and just more appealing to use. Plus I have sound issues with the Lego video games on 10 that I cannot figure out despite trying nearly everything I could find, and that's some bs.
Im surprised this left uncut and is in recents, not gonna lie
Oh, wait, are you trying to discourage me from using Windows 7 because it no longer suffers from Microshjt updates?
@Empshok, nah, but Microsoft is by slapping a full screen notification from time to time
@Elmato, never gotten one of those notifications. Guess that's cuz I turned off Windows update years ago. Unsurprisingly, my computer functions perfectly without them.
