Hi,
After letting 10 sit for 6 months I used it briefly last Sunday to do a benchmark.. and 7 benches better
So I'd say many have both os's but there have been many trying to install 7 on newer machines just because it is as I've always said 10 is just buggy and unstable
I've lost count on how many refresh installs I've done to 10
I've never had to do it to 7 except to get rid of factory crapware which 10 has so much it makes manufacture crapware look docile

I've not gone back to it, there are 4 machines here that all run 10. 2 of them are new desktops that came with it installed and the other 2 are laptops, 1 came with 7 and was upgraded to 10 and my laptop came with 8 and again was upgraded to 10.

I see no reason to go back to 7 even though I have retail versions of 7. 10 does all I need and I don't go looking for faults where there aren't any.

I'm happy with what I have.

Hi,
lol you don't have to look very far for obvious flaws
When I want to shutdown that is exactly what I want to do not have 10 insist on installing updates
Many others but that is the most obvious to me one does not have to look very hard to find

And no Shawn's reg file does not work.

I use 10 for work, and overall, it isn't too bad. However the constant updates keep breaking things like Excel, CAD programs that I have to use, and messing with my settings. Not to mention all of the blue screens when I do use Excel or the CAD programs, or just simply crashing to desktop. Over the course of one project, I lost two weeks of work when Windows crashed and corrupted all of the saves in the save folder. Backup saves were also affected. (Win 10 had also stopped backing up to our NAS every night without notification.) I had to reinstall 7 and dual boot to finish the project as the software would no longer save files after a Windows update.

But other than that, Windows 10 is wonderful! (as long as you don't use it for anything mission critical.)

I only use 7 in a VM just for playing around with once in a great while. . .10 has never in reality given me any problem, thus see no reason to be using an old OS like 7. Also I will not judge those who choose to use any other OS other then 10. Why HP Spectra 2 in 1 came with 10, and has not as of yet had a problem, and,my new Dell 3650 is a 10 machine, and again no problems as of yet. . .

I never upgraded to Windows 10. I was using Windows 7 and now using Windows 8. I am happy with it and don't want to switch to Windows 10.

Windows XP and 7 is still the king for me I will never use window 8/8.1. Windows 10 has a lot of things to improve on. I'm not a big fan of this new operating system until now. I'm using it at our office but I'm forced to install, classic shell to make it fully functional. The windows metro is so lame and I really hate it. I'm a user since Windows 95. I'm grow up with windows but I hate this latest addition!

What a great positive review.

W-10 is working great, if one doesn't count all the programs and missions it corrupts.

Not from checking the statistics from Seven Forums Compared with those from Ten forums. There are quite a few people who visit both sites regularly, this includes the staff, the teams, and a number of other senior members and long standing members

There may be a small minority that joined Ten forums and have returned to Seven Forums exclusively, but the majority who made the move have remained there, with a few that still visit Seven Forums occasionally

It's difficult to be more precise as very few members have asked to close their account on either forum, for any reason, and as far as I am aware no long standing members have done so to specifically return to Seven forums exclusively
