Windows 10 is a lot faster for gaming. I just think your system is not capable for that operating system.

Your system specs.
Computer type PC/Desktop
System Manufacturer/Model Number HP
OS Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit SP1
Memory 2 GB
Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS
I suggest that your system specs is not proper hardware to be testing the difference between any operating systems.

10 does have allot of background processes no doubt about it if using a MS account and all of the built in apps....
I have seen no difference in speed between the 2 os's in general both using a local account.

I believe 7 is just more stable and has far more user control and is why I prefer it even on a low system spec's machine for home premium which is the same as 10 home which has far less user control than 7 home premium.

In a couple years who knows what 10 will be like MS is giving back a little control over the update system and how much telemetry 10 sends but 10 home is no prize at this point :)

It's not nonsense.
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.

Win-10 just cheats on startup by faking out people into thinking they did actually shutdown but all 10 did was hibernate
10 also does not startup all third party services/ programs as 7 does so again it just fakes out users in thinking it starts up faster
7 on a ssd is just as fast as 10 on a ssd startup wise and day to day computing
7's advantage is more control = no cartana or onedrive..... to waste resources on.

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?

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
