Windows 7: It has been a nice run...

Everything will continue to work as it does today.
I don't trust Windows firewall so I have installed Zone Alarm. If you have a Internet security package it comes with a firewall.

My Lady,
I don't blow off one OS, just to run another.
To date, I have Windows 7 Pro 32, Windows 7 Pro 64, Windows 8.1/Pro/64, Windows 10/Pro/32. Windows 10/Pro/64, and yes....Linux Mint, all on separate hard drives.
(Old Railroad saying, "and never the trains shall meet"

Some are inside my Mid Tower case, and some are not.

I just plug in, to the motherboard, the one I want to work with at the moment.
W-7 will remain my daily driver for many years to come.

OH, and I also have Windows XP, on a little Acer One Netbook. It runs GRRRRRRREAT!

So, I guess you could say, that when it comes to OS's, I'm covered. Eh?

You've been a lot of Help to a lot of people on this forum.....We'll miss you.

Blessings,
TechnoMage

I have a similar setup except that rather than use physical Operating systems I rely on Virtual machines, OK I have mine on a Windows 10 Pro Host, [my Daily Driver], as this comes with Hyper V built in, and is still actively supported, but it's a simple thing to load up an OS for testing purposes, I also have the advantage of having the ability of matching the Virtual Machine to close to the physical machine setup used by the client

I'd like to do 7 and 10 that way. So you keep the case always open? My side panels are very difficult to get back on.

Sorry to see you go. I don't think we've ever crossed paths, but always sorry to lose someone.


I'll be staying on Win7 for now. Not in any rush to go anywhere. Just have to get a replacement for MSSE now.

Actually, YES! Since the day I put this PC together, years ago (I don't remember the date now) both side panels have been hidden under my computer desk. Things stay much cooler inside, and I keep a SATA data cable and power cable handy, to pull out when I need them, to hook up another drive.

If I were a casual user, that would probably NOT be the case, but I'm a Computer Tech, enthusiast and hobbyist. So I need access to my motherboard on almost a daily basis.

I have some interesting pic's of me using extra HD's externally, with a 5" fan to keep them cool. But, this forum software will not let me post such pic's on the forum.

I guess I can put in a pic, as an attachment. See below.


Cheers Mates,

That's OK, I can picture it. On 2 of my computers, I cut a small hole in the case, with a power connection and SATA extension sticking out. Unconventional but it works.

In case anyone is interested, the free update to 10 from 7 still works. I just updated my girlfriend's HP laptop running Win 7 Pro this morning, and it (mercifully) went very smoothly - and, it was activated! I wonder if MS is ever going to crack down on free updates. Anyway, it's done.
