Windows 7: Who's sticking with Windows 7?

W7 32 bit, Linux Mint Xfce 18 64 bit


When you see **** that in a website link, that means the forum owner or Administrator has blocked link to that website.

Someone purposely put the "xx" in those links, probably because they are direct downloads.

The ***** are filters put in because of abuse or spam or other reasons deemed necessary.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I'm using both Win 7 and Win 10. I like them both. For me, Win 7 is like first love, while Win 10 is current GF. :)

Spot on.

xx was to avoid users clicking on the link and initiating a download. I removed the other link as it seems that there are reasons not to post links to that website!

Win7 Pro 32bit

I used Win 95 until 2004.
I used XP until 2012.
I've only had Win 7 for 3 years.
I plan on using 7 until its EOL in 2020 or I get a motherboard that does not support it, whichever comes first.
I pay good money for a full OS install disc and I expect to get every last ounce of use out of it.
So long as Windows 7 works on my hardware, I see no reason to "upgrade".
Let the early adopters be the beta testers and guinea pigs. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I've decided to stay with Windows 7. Big Brother (aka Microsoft) is one good reason to avoid Win10. I also don't care for the user interface. Lots of little things that I dislike.

These are the question I ask myself.

1. What will Windows 10 do that Windows 7 won't do?
2. What options does Windows 10 have that Windows 7 doesn't have?
3. Does one want or need those added options?
4. What user control does one loose with Windows 10 such as Windows Updates; maybe more.
5. Does one have the reasonable internet that will allow downloading Windows 10.
6. Can one buy Windows 10 DVD from Microsoft through a legal Retailer?
7. Forget the free version. Is Windows 10 worth buying?
Thank you for this. I actually found your thread because it was referenced by PC WORLD.

I reserved but still haven't done it because I am one of many Win 7 users hesitant as well as suspicious of MS REAL intentions with offering this for free.
