Windows 7: I'm staying with WIN7 and not Win10

I'm staying with WIN7 and not Win10

I installed Windows 10 on my travel touchscreen laptop because it has Windows 8.1.
It works OK but my desktop will stay Windows 7 as long as I can.
I feel Win7 is very stable and for most regular users it works well.
How about you?
Will you stay with Win7 and not upgrade?

Hi,
Yep sticking with 7 as well 7 home premium to 10 home is no upgrade
Without group policy 10 is way too annoying for me to deal with
And even 10 pro is still way too annoying.

I tried W-10 installed on its own ssd and for me it was way to annoying.
Maybe later I will try it again and maybe not.

I'm still trying to figure out what W-10 will do for me that Windows 7 doesn't already do.

Soon as you figure that one out LBB let me know
It will take a heck of a lot more than directx12

As soon as I figure out how to add DX12 to W7 we will have it all, just give me time. Actually, we don`t even need it.

Some say W-10 will boot a few seconds faster. I'm still wondering why that would be a concern.

Most people are still on slow hdd's
If using a ssd there is nothing faster in 10 than 7 or at least is what I've seen :/

Never thought of that. I haven't used a hard drive in so long it slipped my thoughts. Then again we are not talking about adding minutes to a boot even with a hard drive to the best of my memory reading post.

I am staying with Windows 7 and not upgrading to Windows 10 because of this big blunder by Microsoft this October of "accidentally" automatically upgrading Win7/Win8 machines to Win10 without users consent as noted on these articles on these sites:
Windows 10 "Accidentally" Appears On Win 7, 8 Computers | TechBeat

Microsoft 'accidentally' upgrades Win7 and 8.1 PCs to Windows 10 | InfoWorld

NOT OK MICROSOFT!

Strange things happening to Win7 since Win10 came out
Howdy Built my own PC a few months back (learning 3DS MAX, needed something better than the 15-year-old vet I'd been using). Installed Win7 Ultimate on it (x64; this is my first 64-bit PC). Everything (considering I was mad I had to give up WinXP...) eventually worked the way I wanted. A few...

Update from Win7 32bit to Win10 64bit possible?
Hi all, I currently have a laptop with Win7 Professional 32bit, I read that it's possible to update it to Win10 without having to format the hard drive, is that correct? And will it be possible to upgrade to a Win10 64bit version as well? Kind regards

Win7 to Win10 Possibilities?
Anyone exploring the possibilities of moving from Win7 to Win10 upon release. Anyone with experience with Win10 can share insights for Win7 users - probably done before, but haven't seen much lately (mainly just Win8 to Win10). Thanks gumboman
