Still on Windows 7
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on January 20th, 2017 @ 1:05AM

Still living my life on Windows 7. Forget Windows 10. Am I missing anything? haha.


Coming from a former anti-Win10 guy, I finally made the switch not too long ago. I felt the OS had matured enough and MS brought back enough of the traditional functionality of the START menu that I was willing to give it a shot. That and the use of a 3rd party tool like Spybot Anti-Beacon (for those concerned about their privacy and MS over-reaching in its data collection).

After a few weeks of use I can honestly say the experience has been positive. The new Task Manager is nice, the FileCopy process is definitely better than all previous versions of Windows combined (no more relying on 3rd party software like TeraCopy). Edge has replaced Internet Explorer so there's a case to be made on that alone that security is better - but kind of moot if you're already using Chrome or Firefox.

But I have to say the one feature that really surprised me were the Windows Updates. They're seamless and I only have to reboot my machine every other week if less. That's a far cry from Windows 7 where even a minor MS Word update forced a reboot.

To answer your question though, there is really nothing there in 10 that can't be achieved in 7. Basically if it works for you, there's really no compelling reason to pay the premium to switch.

Edit: spelling cleanup

I downgraded from Windows 10 to 7 after the, "Anniversary Update".

After the update I was getting constant BSODs. I think it was because I have an older raid controller.

I also couldn`t stand the forced windows updates. Its way too pushy. Sometimes the Windows Update driver isn`t the best solution and can break your computer.

Every 30 minutes, Windows 10 sends all typed text to Microsoft. GoboLinux is the way to go.

I got on 10, pretty much, as soon as it came out. I haven't had any problems with it. I can't say it is better or worse as it just works for me like 7 did.

I do use a feature that 7 doesn't have (at least I don't think it works) is the Xbox streaming. Sometimes my wife wants to use the big TV downstairs to watch a movie, so I play Xbox One games streamed to my PC, which works well. It isn't something that most people would need, but I use it.

Win 10's cmd window is far better than Win 7. I do a lot of scripting and sane copy and paste, etc has been a big win for me.
