Default 10 Sucks !

I'm staying happily with 7 .

I occasionally ask for one good reason to go to 10 and nobody has
given one. Lots of good reasons NOT to go to 10 !

Indeed!

Just stay with 7 then. It is more stable than 10 and you
won't have many issues with software compatibility. And
it is a ton easier to run and administer. Plus, the update
process is not as severe as 10. 7 is also more
tolerant of under powered cheap assed hardware.

10 have build in drivers support (USB3, NVMe, etc.) and
finds printers on your network/local very easily. It
also will mount an iso for you in Windows Explorer
(Not Internet Explorer).

Software support will end for 7 next year, which may be
a blessing in disguise. XP still works fine and it
has not been supported for years. And XP gets
broken into less than does 7, so if history hold true,
you can ignore the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt)
and just keep your antivirus updated (Kaspersky and ESET
are good AV's).

You can also consider Mac OS and Linux. Both are
technically superior to Windows, but have only about 1/20
of the software support. And you have to "learn something
new". Linux has "Live USB" iso's you can download and try
before you buy. Make sure the software you need supported
runs before switching. And be forewarned: Mac OS is "weird
for the sake of weirdness".

winxp does *not* still work fine, especially on recent hardware, where
it won't run very well, or more likely, not at all.

modern apps won't run on xp either, and they're not going to.

most apps require win7 or later, with a small (and growing) number
needing win10.

true.

but have only about 1/20
of the software support.


false. mac has extensive software support, on the other hand, linux
does not.

And you have to "learn something
new".


nothing significant.

and if learning something new makes someone more productive, even if it
takes a while, it's worth it in the long run.

Linux has "Live USB" iso's you can download and try
before you buy. Make sure the software you need supported
runs before switching.


except that linux has the least software support.

most modern software simply does not exist, and the 'equivalent' titles
(if they exist) are nowhere near as good.

however, for specific use cases, it works well, notably servers (not
desktop).

And be forewarned: Mac OS is "weird
for the sake of weirdness".


completely false.

there are obviously some differences (mostly minor), as there will be
with any two products from different makers. none of them are weird for
the sake of weirdness.
