    I've dual booted with 7.

    No regret so far but, it lacks the glitter of 7.

    Hey, I like eye candy.

    I agree even though I use Windows Classic Theme in Windows 7. I have many customers that enjoy Aero and I don't think it was necessary to remove that feature from Windows 10. There are a lot of creative people in the world (artists) who like a more colorful ambiance. I think Aero should be returned to Desktop/Laptop computers.

    As a dual boot but not on the SSD; that might change real soon!
    Incredibly fast Boot Time! I use Dual SSD 250GB by Samsung. Both W7 and W10 are their own separate drives. I am still more impressed with Windows 7 features and text links in the Start Menu when I pin something to it. I think there is probably an option for that but I have yet to find it.

    When you do put W10 on an SSD you'll cut the boot time by 1/2 to 2/3 the time. Whoosh!

    I have been running the OS on an SSD for a few years now and I'm so spoiled with the extra speed that I could never go back to running it on a spinner.

    I had Windows 7 on an HDD a while back; I almost fell asleep waiting for it to load!

    You know the old saying: "The faster life gets, the more sense new Windows' makes"!
