I'm guessing all your friends are running an alternative OS such as Linux with its awesome hardware compatibility and ease of troubleshooting? Or a mac variant with their awesome cost efficient software variety and availability? Or how about Windows 7, 8/8.1 with its awesome interface?

Yes, you must have many friends :)

I know, I know. That was the case until you mentioned Windows 7, at which point it failed to work because, frankly, you are right. Windows 7 has an absolutely amazing interface, especially compared to Windows 95...oh wait...was that 98? No...ehm...2000?....Millennium Edition?....No, no and no.
It was that GUI designed in Microsoft Paint....oh, yeah, now I can remember: it was Windows 10!

I have both a Win10 and a Win7 computer, both are used a lot, depending on my current location.
To be honest, after getting used to Win10, I find the GUI of Win7 'old looking'. Like the old 'futuristic' chrome logo.

Of course, Win10 exagerated a bit too much by making everything 2-dimensional and flat. They could have made something better there. But it is incredibly better to 8/8.1, in my opinion.

I will say that Win10 has some disadvantages, especially the 'dual' Control Panel/Settings and their overlapping funcionts. But it is better in almost every other way, for my tastes.


Although I feel we are getting a bit off topic (from the very first comment, including mine)

Heh i find the oppisite, 10 looks like it was developed in the 90s. The interface is so plain and blocky. Its all retro, and not in a good way.

Sure it looks a little bit better then 8, but that isnt saying much. I seriously hate the tile interface.

I run Windows 7 on 10/20 core CPU with SLI 1080 and booting from Samsung Nvme 950 Pro and it is better than Windows 10 in every possible scenario not to mention how but ugly Win10 is let alone dodgy security policies and shit load of bugs.

I am staying with Windows 7 at least until 2019. Honestly, i don't think Windows 10 will live that long since it failed for all the reasons it was created for such as UWP crap and similar.

Windows 10 has problems with disk usage. Randomly 100% for no reason, rendering low end systems that are usually somewhat usage completely useless.

Also, Microsoft please fix the auto-update ONLY policy being applied to server 2016. I try to use Linux whenever possible but sometimes I have to use server 2016 and wouldn't you know, it has auto update ONLY.

the bug squashes are fun. i do as much as i can each time one comes along. MS actually does listen to insider feedback a lot of the time. and at times when something is purely aesthetic, they will simply ask for ideas and then poll to see what will go into final product. many of the icon looks, layouts on taskbar and notification center were specifically picked by insiders from a few options that were suggested by insiders earlier.

many times i only see new features due to these events. as they may be something i would normally not bother with. so it's kind of nice to have a guided tour of a feature or two to introduce myself and to see if any bugs pop up while i do it. there are literally millions of possible hardware combos and they can't possibly test them all. so all the insiders with their varying systems are a good test platform to see how things will react in the wild.

of course the whiny naysayers out there bashing win 10 like they do every version (true some do deserve to be bashed) should avoid insider builds since they can;t handle minor bugs that pop up in public releases. they'd cry themselves to sleep if they saw true beta stuff with actual problems that need to be solved :p

So you did a professional, clean install of each OS, and you used some bench-marking software to make your evaluation? No - just seat of the pants right.

My seat of the pants review says Windows 10 is superior to Windows 7, and I loved Windows 7.

Don't know why they bother with the Bug Bash, they have been given tons of bug reports in the Feedback Hub and many bugs persist even after 3-5 Builds, but hey MS has introduced new stuff we didn't need.

And of course they keep trying to make a browser. Stop it with Edge already, I don't want it and won't use it.
