Gordie, why would you even ask? A good share of the world, including our own Government (USA) is still using Windows 7.


It was only a few years ago, that the Veterans' Administration (VA) upgraded all their terminals from Windows XP to Windows 7.


And there is absolutely NO reason to change now.


I and 90% of my PC customers are still using Win-7 and have no plans on upgrading to anything else.



Anything else?

Yes. Still running perfectly. No issues, no malware found so far, despite all the warnings up to a few months ago that my PC would be hacked and be riddled with viruses. That was BS then and it's BS now.

Anybody? Only a few Million! And me!



The only people who don't want to run Win-7 anymore are those who are inept at keeping it properly maintained and running at peak performance.

I sympathize with those who are totally Computer Illiterate and will just let their PC go till it can't go anymore and then feel like they have to go out and buy a new computer. Then they are REALLY unhappy, when they come head to head with Windows 10.


Just like an old car, that's never had an oil change, or any other maintenance, Windows (any version) will load up and die eventually.



As a professional PC tech, I've had to work on PC's like that. It usually takes me several hours to get rid of all the neglect. But once cleaned, tweaked, and re-tuned, I can make any old PC run better than it did when it was new.
Like one famous wrestler used to say, "It's what I do!".


Stay safe and Stay Healthy, my friends,

Unfortunately, that's most users. When your machine slows down to a crawl and doesn't function, you go buy another one. I found a premium vacuum cleaner near our dumpster a few years ago. It was missing a plug and the filter and dirt container had never been cleaned. I'll give them 1 point for the plug because most people can't do those. But the rest was lack of maintenance. Throw it out, buy another for $175.
