          Still using windows 7 myself will continue too do so my laptop does not support windows 10 and windows 10 is not a good os version and windows 11 system requirements are way too high and i still use adobe flash player and play games powered by it as well as java player and many more

          microsoft makes just life harder
          why does microsoft make things so difficult windows always has so many problems compatibility issues am sick and tired of it

          i don't like the way micosoft does stuff my biggest problem are with drivers and restore
          restore partition & partition recovery broken as resort of bad updates
          endless dill errors framework / directx problems along having a hard time getting onboard intel graphics & NVIDIA graphics work well and be stable

          I don't care about the new versions of windows and don't want a failed mobile os buggy mess on the desktop i don't having spend hours of my time fighting with computer just too make a progarm work so fed up of this

              This is just bad. I’m still using windows 8.1 in my laptop and it’s working perfectly fine for my work and business.

                Microsoft should be forced by law too support windows 7 forever
                very bad of Microsoft and hardware manufacturers are not supporting windows 7
                i hate how corrupt industry is
                users should be given more choose

                                Why don't you check some youtube videos and see what they say on the topic? I know Youtubers are not reliable in general, but hey, all people can't be wrong together, now can they?

                                And like I said, I wouldn't have cared even if Windows 10 was faster, its a legalised spyware and that's it.

                                  Anonymous, 11 Jan 2023How do you know windows 10 is spyware? Did you create it?So, err... I have to create it to know its a spyware? Its privacy policy is a disaster.

                                  It uploads all sorts of usage data to spy into your life without any internet limits whatsoever. You connect a Windows 10 PC to internet, it instantly scrubs 500 BM without you even using it once, and you're telling me its just a reliable OS?!

                                  To top of it, we have users like you who accept things without opposing. Doesn't it freak you out that something knows everything about you?
