Interesting thought…. Does an SDD fix the buggy issues with win10?... Or will the slow downs just go back to normal operating speed I had with win 7 installed?... Will it also fix the freezing issue on occasions?

Thanks for suggestion but I would simply install image backup of win 7 made before upgrade, which I've been strongly leaning towards lately.

I still do. (snuggle, snuggle, snuggle)
I have looked forward to every other Windows OS since Windows 95.
I'm not a person that resists change. I love new technology.

I don't wear a tinfoil hat. I don't believe in conspiracy theories.
I do believe there are companies willing to sell my personal information or put it at risk for their own benefit.

Windows 10 should only be used by those that understand the risks involved and take the time to minimize those risks.
I no longer have any affection for Microsoft.

It was fun while it lasted Microsoft.
It's not me, it's you.

I said the same thing, then my computer's Achilles' heel, the GPU (the one I mention the specs of in my profile) crapped out, not long after I joined here actually, trashed it and never used 7 again after that. Been on 10 for almost a year, quite enjoy it to be honest besides the horrible Start menu and overall design IMO (but WindowBlinds and Start10 easily fix this), got it to look as close to 7 as I could. I'm content. While I'm sad that I didn't get to ride out 7's last days with it, and will greatly miss it (as well as my old laptop) I still have plenty of fond memories of all the years of using it, and I have my old laptop's hard drive that I need to get all of the files off of. Sure I will find some nice screenshots to fondly look back on it. I know it's hard, I denied 10 for years like most people, but once I got rid of what I really didn't like, it works and looks great.

Yes, thats one of the risks of staying with an unsupported OS unfortunately.

Glad to hear some positivity around W10. Not sure if you have registered on our sister site yet - lots of good information there if needed.

I want to keep XP forever, its not gonna happen though.
I have both 7 & 10 on 2 diff computers. I could live with 7 but 10 is the devils child.
I have no need for a computer except as a toy. I drove bulldozers for 40 years, no need for a computer there! I pay my bills with a check in the mail, etc.

I play with Mint Mate, would go there before 10, (anywhere before 10)

This is not a recommendation of any one of them as I have never felt the need to change a UI (except when I used to design them as a part of my job)

Win 7 has been great but its time for me to move on. I've been using Win 10 Enterprise for a few months and getting use to it. Its a lot faster and can do things that Win 7 can't. Its going to get to a point where software won't even update for Win 7 anymore. I also notice the Bluestacks android emulator works great with Win 10 when it worked terrible on Win 7
