Folks, what ever makes your boat float.

No device replaces another device. Their is no laptop that can do what either of my two desktops can do.
For those that travel have different needs, than those that don't.
I personally don't have any kind of cell phone for two good reasons.
1. I don't need one.
2. I don't want one.
I have no portable devices of any kind for the same reasons.

Now my big point is that my needs or desires don't match Nigel's needs or desires. So we have different hardware to match what we need and what we want.
Their isn't a right or wrong.
When and if the time comes that I need or want a portable device, I will get one.

Hi,
Indeed I use an iphone now on 5s I believe so I may end up with a iphone 6 or 7 but it will be a cheap deal if i do
I'll end up switching to verizon when my at&t contract is over I've been with them way too long and cell service is the only item I have with them now.
But no way a windows phone will be in my pocket I know that for sure

I have very few apps but the ones I do use I'd like to keep
I do really despise texting and the people that insist on doing it to me which I mostly ignore

Yeah Windows7 has always been a standard OS which many preferred. Many of the people still use Win7 for its best features.

Windows 7/64 HPremium.
 
 

I'm 72 now, came to computing late in my late 50's after injury and disability ended my former career as a workshop foreman and motor engineer. I had never used a computer in my life, but had to change careers and did so by attending a Technical college at wekends and a 12 month course at a dedicated Disability college on weekdays. I began with Windows 3.1, a second hand clunker of a monster case with a Cyrix CPU, (I think) a huge 8 GB of Hdd and a massive 128MB of RAM. I began to investigate the innards of each new/pre owned machine I bought, learned the nuts and bolts and began building my own. Now we have in our home, the devices in my spec's.

I bought the missus a HP DV7 laptop and a Kindle, bought her a better Lenovo and gave the HP to a grandaughter. Then we bought a smartphone each, not a phone that anyone outside the UK might recognise: a Wileyfox, it's actually British. I realised that failing eyesight meant that I could not read e - books on the 5.5" phone, so I bought an 8" Lenovo tablet and began to experiment. Now I can tether the tablet to the phone as a Hotspot and throw my music, pictures, books and videos around to and from devices, using streaming via the NAS and/or Google Drive.

I did all this because I see computers as tools that can be assembled (desktops) or used to carry out tasks, find information, plan some Diy, decorating, repairs or garden jobs. That is my engineer's brain at work and the one thing that has saved my sanity, is the ability to sit down and work with devices. I like to learn new stuff and I like to try to stay abreast of tech if I can. Which is why I now believe that Windows has had its day: it was a long day, but I think that Google will be the company that will replace Windows. When 7 support ends in 2020, I will probably find something else, and I believe that something else will probably be a derivative of the Chromebook. There is just so much that can be done with Google stuff, and it is becoming more and more integrated. It is no coincidence that Google has now overtaken Apple and Microsoft.

Very much popular, because Windows 7 is stable, robust and the typical gets thing done OS.

I really hate Windows 10, which i think not design for PC/desktop use. May look into linux after Windows 7 ended support in 2020.

Hello Everyone, Windows 7 is still number one with me, and everyone in my family, and friends are still

using it. I do not even own a mobile phone, never have, just use the landline. I will probably keep using

Windows 7 after 2020. I do have a new Windows 10 pc, but have not done much with it yet, because it

wants to guts up all of my internet data for the month.

Linux isn't somewhat a no-brainer software. It actually p'd me off that I need to type something in the terminal to be able to download something or execute a program.

Hello RoasterMen, Linux is not an option for me either. I am not a friend of that terminal. Every command

I was told to type in it, did not work. I do not find it that user friendly for the average pc user like me.

Windows 7 not as popular as I thought...
Not trying to start a heated argument, or lambaste Win7, but I was surprised to see that it's usage is still below Vista, and waaaay below XP. It's funny how the media can make you think that "everybody's" switching to 7! lol :confused: Assuming of course, that my source is accurate:...
