Windows 7: Win7 vs Win10

Apart from what Thrashzone layout, Win7 doesn't have sync setting, automatic hardware drivers download (which is very annoying) for your hardware, not knowing if that particular drivers will work or not. Microsoft shouldn't implement this kind of stuff inside Win10, it should be let users control of their OS not Microsoft.

They're similar, although Win10 was apparently streamlined for certain HW.
My Win7 consistently boots from cold to a fully functioning desktop in 17 secs.
When I was using Win10 it was 18+ at the least.
You must take into consideration the sneaky hybrid sleep of Win10 that makes it seem to boot faster because it didn't really shut down.
Still, I prefer a safer, more adult, more controllable OS.
Sure, you always have to lock down MS OSes against their intrusions.
Win10 is one big gang-bang.
Yet, you still have to be careful of MS attempting to squirt their modern filth into Win7 via WU nowadays.
At least there's no store and no cloud in Win7.
With Win7, I still have local Sticky Notes and a normal calculator without needing to find and install alternatives.
Win7 also has only one sensible GUI with comprehensive controls for the entire system.
I couldn't lock down 10 and keep it running, as MS seems to have hardwired a lot of dependencies between their modern abuses and core system components to prevent circumvention without trashing the system.
While I have to bolt small tools onto Win7 to bring it up to desktop useability that has been in many Linux distros for a while, I cannot migrate away fully because of lack of gaming support; while nVIDIA is also throwing an intentional spanner in the works to prevent a mass migration away from Windows to Linux.
Canonical (and derived) products do not count as, who'd ever trust a man who claims to have been in space?
Yes, the Linux scene has been infiltrated and compromised, though not true Linux/Unix distros.
Apple's BSD-derivative OS has comprehensive graphic support from nV, but Apple doesn't have good HW or prices (and they don't have games, because games would expose this and break their cultural-Marxist demographic's fragile little hearts) and it's yet another corporate bundle that is closed off to physical tampering by users.
At least I have other machines with ATi cards, but they're not my most powerful cards for gaming.


I don't think I've come across so much conspiracy in a single post.....

I enjoyed Windows 7 more because it was more barebones and to the point. I felt I could get things done much faster on Windows 7.

I recently took a plane trip and saw multiple laptops reboot and get stuck doing updates for the majority of the flight lol. That CU roll out, does windows not pause updating when in airplane mode? I have to revoke the reboot task on my work laptop as it will try to always update when i'm in a VM.

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?

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
