Best OS Ever!

Pros: This was the first Windows OS that installed on my own and it was perfect. It literally NEVER crashed or needed a restore; until I was drafted into Windows 10 but that's another story. Still has Media Center and normal looking interface and NO CORTANA.
Windows 7 is still my favorite Microsoft operating system

Summary: Tried Windows 10 and I have to pass. I'll keep 7.
Pros: Still better than 8 and 10 for my money.
Cons: I can't believe you pay 200$ for, lets be fair, an older OS, only to have the disc shipped in a cardboard envelope. I always feel ripped off when I have to pay for Windows and it comes packaged like a cheap demo. Also the constant, Windows 10 popup that it forces on your taskbar is an unforgivabl...
Summary: If your going for the latest tech.....I'd bite the bullet and just go with Windows 10. Support on the new boards is limited.
Pros: I'll put this on a lesser rig I am building for my son. I love Windows 7....but my new LGA 1151 MB does not. Requires a work-around to install on the 1151. I'll miss 7....but am learning the benefits of 10.
Cons: Be aware.....the LGA 1151 (ASUS A170 Pro Gaming MB) required a work-around to install Windows 7. In the end I opted to go with Windows 10. Happy I did. Win 10 is rock solid and is running perfectly. -3 eggs for lack of support on 1151.
Summary: If i had a choice I would never use windows ever again. It gobbles up ram, trys to boss me arround, and keep's trying to force me into Windows 10.
Pros: - It works
Cons: - It's still Windows. - I like 7 better than 8 or 10 and it keeps trying to force me into 10. - It won't stop trying to get me to switch to 10. - Windows is greedy - Windows is a group of sellouts
Summary: wondering what is next on the horizon, win11/12, I'm not one of the people wasting money on office 360, I'll use openoffice org for free!
Pros: After decades of consumers complaining Microsoft finally offered free Windows OS upgrades. Win7/Win8 to Win10. Still figuring out all the bells and whistles in Win10 but love it so far. My customers are extremely happy too that they don't have to keep buying a new OS every 2-3 years!
Cons: It's win7, a vast improvement over XP & Vista. Makes the entire Vista debacle seem like decades ago. Still a good OS if you want to run 7 w/o upgrading to 10.
