Windows 7: Who's sticking with Windows 7?

Hi,
Win-10 is so sensitive imagining does work fine but the ultimate problem is connecting to the internet with win-10,

My start menu works fine off line but as soon as I connect to the internet recent programs and files disappear so there is an update that is messing it up
After it messes it up even disconnecting from the internet does not solve anything.

Best cure I've found is I do not use win-10 I'm sick of resetting it.
Maybe in 2020 it might work for longer than a month before stuff stops recent programs is pretty basic feature

I've been running Win 10 since the very first preview and have never had the issues you are describing Thrash. I don't find Win 10 unstable in the least.

Even though I run Win 10 on several machines and like it fine, I still have no intention of upgrading my desktop (running Win 7 Ult) to Win 10 as I don't feel there will be anything gained by doing so.

i just bought a laptop last week came pre installed with windows 10, i must say i have had no issues what so ever with it, all programs work, i did remove store and all its apps, and other stuff... runs ok, but i will say mine is a gaming laptop so not sure if that makes a difference.. but i am going to downgrade to 7 if i can , i am going to partion my 2nd drive and see if it will find all drivers... if not then i will stick with 10... i just like 7 better as some features and option i liked in 7 are not in 10..

You could say that about almost any past OS. Remove Win 10 from you statement and insert Win ME. Your statement would not be true then. There is no certainty that Win 10 will be better. There is only Hope.

Just a question here. If I purchase a new PC with Win 10, can I just restore an image of Win 7 from my old PC and be good to go or is there something in Win 10 that stops that?

Is the Win 7 on your old PC a retail license?

Ignoring the licensing issue (if any), it will likely "work" in the sense that it will probably boot.

You may have some bangs in Device Manager and a screwy looking desktop. Given a few hours, you should be able to fix most or all of that.

I'd certainly download Windows 7 drivers for your Ethernnet (NIC), monitor, sound card, etc.

Even after all of that, you may not be "good to go", depending on the licensing issue. If you've got a Win 7 retail license, you should be fine, although you may have some hair-pulling to do. If you don't have a Win 7 retail license, I'd expect you'll have to deal with Microsoft either over the phone or online in order to activate--and from what I've heard in the last couple of years, your success in doing that is unpredictable.

I haven't heard of anything in a Win 10 install that would interfere with a Win 7 image restoration.

Then there's the question of how easy it would be to go back to 10 after you had used 7 for a while. Lots of variables.

If you buy a new PC, you may be faced with unfamiliar UEFI/GPT issues and a bunch of menu choices you've never seen before--particularly if you do a re-install.

I'm contemplating a clean install of 10, but I don't want to over-write a known good 7 Retail install---so that would mean I'd have to buy a new SSD for 10. Not sure I'll do that. I don't fully trust the Win 10 "roll back" feature or imaging.

sticking with Windows 7 until MS comes ou with the 1st service pack.

i am an admin for over 400 windows computers, no need to update now.

typically businesses wait until the last minute to update. too many different variables to just decide to update one day. the update process takes months to plan and execute.

I think the plan is that there will not be any traditional Service Packs for Windows 10 but a rolling development program with regular "small" updates.

Of course we have already had one "small" update last September/October and await another This July with the Anniversary edition both of which contained enough changes new features to be classed as an old style Service pack

I fully understand the constraints of business computing as I've been involved in upgrades in companies where there are Thousands of seats involved - hopefully the rolling update system will reduce the major trauma of system upgrades

You have had no problems (you say), therefore there are no problems. This anecdotal nonsense is the bane of tech forums. People have very real problems with Win10. Glad that you don't, but just because you don't doesn't mean that others don't.

And of course just because one user has an issue the whole OS is full of Bugs and unstable for everyone who is forced to use it

I think you should lose this trolling attitude you have and especially stop questioning the statements of others just because it does not fit your personal agenda
