Ah.. I stopped using WIn7 when Win8/Win8.1 came out. Why?? Well 8/8.1 were more to my liking, they were more secure and just faster. I used Classic Shell to get a nice start menu and it just did what I wanted it to do. Now with 10 I find that it's an OS that I just find much better than 7 or 8/8.1.
For me 7 was good and a stable OS but it was far from beloved. So, please from now on speak for yourself and don't include everyone in what you feel is your "trusty and beloved OS"..
