Windows 7: How long should I keep Windows 7 and delay upgrading?

man, i'm afraid to get it bc then i'll want to get an emulator for other 8 bit classics. EA had a hand in it? whoa. the last pc game i played was 10+ years ago, starcraft and counterstrike. i am tempted, the plot is pretty unique. i think i remember aol came on hard disks before the cd, pretty sure. 'aohell' as some called it was pretty high-tech with a blistering 14.4k modem. remember they had tos'ers and punters?

lol yeah 14.4K modems SLLOOOOWWW lol


it wouldn't cost you much to try it out..
EA was likely the the Publisher.. as Bullfrog was the developer...
I STILL my original CD that that game came on in way back in the early/mid 2000s I bought the
gold edition.. I figured they redid the programming to make it run on Windows XP/etc.... NOPE.. just the standalone FULL game
nothing nota not even DOS box...

I'll go pop it out and check a thing or two... brb
I'm getting photos of my [Syndicate Plus] game box..
I can't use it I just keep it for nostalgic reasons...

Blizzard has MADE the original StarCraft FREEWARE NOW!! YUP!!
and they have done a whole bunch of update to it to bring it up to speed with Windows 7+!!!

and the best part I saved for last.. the are doing a
"Starcraft - Remastered" version due out by the end of summer
- 4k GRAPHICS and a overhaul of the programming etc!!

I mistakenly bought a new (kaby) laptop thinking I could use MS 7/8. I am very reticent to use 10 with privacy concerns + crappy look and because I honestly think 7 is divine.

I may wind up selling a pretty much brand new machine, but am trying to see how many lingering privacy & other concerns there are with 10 after making tweaks found such as here:

i agree, the price is good, just like sc remastered. i've been mulling over getting it for the same reasons for almost a month. time commitment and my addictive personality. i used to play competitively way back when no one played KBK ladder games in the US, at least not too many. i have been stalking pro gamers in korea playing remastered as it's released there already and they have made some nice upgrades to it. i am torn.
i keep telling myself to play one game a day max but i know that ain't gonna happen.

wow, that is a ton of games. i spend a lot of time with poker so i cannot afford more screen time. i'm pretty much done with video games at this point besides the occasional CS 1.6 sess to blow off steam after a rough session of cards.

fb is good for keeping in touch with friends and family but do not get your news from fb. get newsletters delivered to your mailbox. the link below is a great source that will mail you daily articles and does not censor anything. truly unbiased and not funded by big bro in any way. so much so that they have been constantly battling to stay alive from huge corporations like amazon who is government funded, much like google, twitter, mainstream media, etc. if you use the search box in the upper right-hand corner and type in amazon, monsanto, facebook, etc. you will see loads of articles. this is mostly a site about health but they touch on important topics as well. do not get your news from MSM or social media, just look how they skewed the results, perspective, and information in the last election.

Facebook declares WAR on CHILDREN: Censors independent science that tries to protect infants from medical harm – NaturalNews.com

Natural News targeted in massive, well-funded, multi-nation DDoS attack to silence debate on vaccines – NaturalNews.com

Facebook blocks all Natural News article posts to 2.2M fans after site posts White House petition citing immunization dangers – NaturalNews.com

there still are some good and unbiased sources like breitbart, reuters, zerohedge, etc. but whatever you do, PLEASE don't get it from MSM or social media. that is absolutely the worst-case scenario.
