I forgot all about starting this thread so apologies for not getting back. I dont really like the idea of continuing with W7 without being able to update so reluctantly Ill probably downgrade to W10. ill wait until the end of July in case thee are any new developments. Thanks for all the feedback.

Why is update important. All you get is new bugs with the updates. I never update any of my running systems - since years. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Really, what do you need updates for to run an operating system ?

Linux never gets updates, they just come out with newer versions.

You never have to update windows if you don`t want to.

If you read the description of every update that came out, 99% of them are not even needed.

I never install an update that I don`t want or need.

This appears to be the common theme and IMO, is exactly what MS hopes/expects!

That's what it is. Who wants to go from a rock solid Windows 7 to a shaky Windows 10.

I wouldn`t call it shaky, it runs great for me on my Gateway whenever I use it.

But I only use it for browsing.

If the GUI was better, I`d be all over it, but that`s just me.

It`s just another OS by MS, not even close to the gem that 7 is.

You are one of the lucky ones. I have seen other reports. In my modest count it panned out about 50/50. I run my W10 in a virtual system where it works well. But virtual is another story.

Don't worry Windows7 will run fine after 2020 and without any update ...
I'm still using Xp without any issue ...

Hint : use a sw to create an image of Os, like i do , for example True image , so you can reinstall it if needed
