    What of it? You said:"but the facts are proving its better for modern systems than 7"There are plenty of "modern systems" which are desktops. You seem to want to change your assertion to something like, "but the facts are proving its better for a wider variety of system types than 7", which is of course, moving the goalpost, and is irrelevant to someone who uses only a desktop.That assertion is so vague that it's meaningless. See above.Say what?No. In Windows 7 there is a setting to change the default UI font. To do so in Windows 10 you have to hack the registry, which is absurd. Windows 10 doesn't allow you to pin shortcuts to the left side of the Start menu. Windows 7 has the classic theme available, while Windows 10 doesn't. Windows 7 allows you to select any possible color for the desktop background (out of over 16 million possible colors); Windows 10 gives you 24 pre-selected options. Windows 7 allows you to install Virtual PC, while it is arbitrarily blocked from installation in Windows 8 and 10. I have no doubt at all that there are plenty of other things, but I don't even like Windows 7 all that much, so I haven't used it much. It consider it to be a downgrade from XP, but better than Vista, Windows 8, or Window 10.
    Seems to be not much faster than 8.1 Per the July article I read but has improvements and Direct X 12You can make tiles as short cuts to programs, I've done that and I use the free Nexus bar on desktop which you can make other shortcuts. As far as the colors? Never cared too much about thatClassic them? Dont care and its 2015 time to have something different. Virtual PC? Used it before but really have no use for it and I doubt that the majority of users will careHonestly these points seem to be important to you and I like you loved 7 but embracing the change in computing world can be a good thing. I remember these same discussions about XP vs 7 years ago then 7 vs 8, in the case of 8 yes it was a disaster

    Because of the one OS for so many different PCs,

    Apple has less problems due to the very limited hardware differences in the devices that run their OS's yet Apple still has bugs at times.

    In my opinion

    #1 Windows 7, the best OS ever made, everyone loved it never heard a complaint about it.
    #2 Windows 10, it`s no Windows 7 but MS has to do something every few years, it`s very nice.
    #3 XP, it did it`s job fine for the work force, but blue screened and froze up way too often.
    #4 Vista, ya I said Vista, personally, I loved the change from XP.

    I said that you can't pin shortcuts to the left side of the Start menu in Windows 10, you know, where they would be small and unobtrusive, rather than making the Start menu wider.

    I've done that and I use the free Nexus bar on desktop which you can make other shortcuts.
    Third-party applications don't count. We are talking about what Windows 7 and 10 can and can't do out of the box.

    As far as the colors? Never cared too much about thatClassic them? Dont care and its 2015 time to have something different. Virtual PC? Used it before but really have no use for it and I doubt that the majority of users will care
    Whether or not you or anyone else cares about those things isn't relevant. You claimed that ...

    "Everything that is in 7 is there in 10 except the control on updates"


    ... which isn't true.

    Honestly these points seem to be important to you and I like you loved 7
    In reality, I said:

    "... but I don't even like Windows 7 all that much, so I haven't used it much."

    So where did you get the idea that I "loved 7"?

    but embracing the change in computing world can be a good thing.
    Change is only good when it is for the better, and that applies to everything, not just the computing world. For example, the change from Windows Me to XP was awesome.

    BSoDs and freezes are a sign of problems, usually hardware and/or driver problems. XP doesn't inherently have a tendency to BSoD and freeze. I ran XP as my main OS from 2002 until a few weeks ago, and the only BSoDs or freezes I ever had were due to hardware or driver problems. On the hardware that I recently replaced; I ran XP on it for 9 years with not a single BSoD or freeze. On the hardware that I used previous to that (from 2002 until 2006), at one point I had a freezing problem, and going back to an older version of my video driver solved it.

    As the OP all I can say is GOOD GRIEF.......
    Yeah, it might be time to just abandon this thread and start over with a new one. Maybe even ask a moderator to delete it. It's been spammed to death by some very inconsiderate people.

    Good idea(start new thread, not delete). . But this time in Installation and Setup and not General Discussion. General Discussion is actually what is going on so we can't blame them, and only, post what's wrong, or else you will get an invasion of the "Opinionators".

Pretty disappointed so far
A disclaimer: I never liked Windows 7, or Vista, or XP. I used them, but never enjoyed the experience. Windows Phone and Windows 8, and then 8.1 are the first OS Microsoft ever made that I liked. I fact I loved 8/8.1. I installed the Windows 10...
