    I think Jody wants long terms support for the operating system, but Jeff (Bunnyj) wants to upgrade. However, isn't windows 10 going to be long term support or is Microsoft always going to be replacing the GUI every year?

    Win10 should have a stable GUI for some time I suspect. If not I'll just learn to use the new one.

    For me its down to official support. I simply will not use a product that is no longer supported in both helpdesk support and in updates. You're leaving yourself open to vulnerabilities.

    Win7 will continue to receive support until 2020 so I don't think that going to be an issue for many. IN the end of the day if someone really likes Win7 and it works fine for them I can't see a good reason to upgrade right away. I'm going to because I like Win10 more than Win8.1.

    I don't understand this vulnerability/security thing. There seems to be such a terrible fear of an infection. I don't know of any computer user who has loss the use of their computer permanently due to an infection. As long as they have a back up CD or have the factory recovery disks they will be okay. I know people who don't do W updates and haven't for years. I know someone who has never done W updates and has never had infection or hacker. He still uses W 98 and xps.

    win98 might work for him ,but for most users there is just to many issues with browsers not be compatible with so many web sites, like banking and school web sites ,we were constantly up grading browsers for such reasons ,ect ect

    Greed?? I can't agree with that. But, I don't want to get into a discussion about that subject here. I think that change is a good thing and people can adapt to it. We've been doing that for ages and will for a very long time to come. Some changes are bad but not all of them and making blank statements is silly, IMO.

    I used to dig LP's but I really love CD's. The sound is better and they don't have the dust issues and static that LP's have.

    Change isn't always a good thing, especially change for change's sake. Why should I (or anyone else, for that matter) adapt to change if it isn't beneficial? If change benefits me, I'm all over it. But, if it doesn't benefit me overall, forget it! In the case of Win 10, I haven't seen anything new that I would benefit from that I'm not already getting from third party add-ons with Win 7 (many which do a better job than Win 10). I still have two retail copies of Win 7 (Home Premium and Ultimate) I haven't used yet. All my programs and hardware is compatible with Win 7; that may or may not be true with Win 10 and it may be a while after Win 10 has been out before some of them, if any, will be compatitble from updates in the programs or hardware drivers. I just don't see the point in upgrading from an OS that fully meets my needs to one that probably will not from the start and will probably cost me money in needed upgrades in programs and hardware.

    I don't think I meant that anyone had to adapt to the new OS. IF you read post #154 you'll see that I don't think that if people like Win7 should update to Win10.

    You're contradicting yourself. You said change is a good thing, as though it always is. I said change isn't always a good thing and gave an example in the context of this topic. another example would be smart phones. I wouldn't mind having one but, being on a so called fixed income, I don't need another large monthly bill and the benefits of a smart phone do not outweigh the disadvantages of that large bill. I've done just fine without one for all my life. I have an ancient prepaid cell phone (an Oystr; go ahead and laugh but it's paid for) I carry for emergencies that stays off unless I need to use it. The benefits of that outweighs the small average monthly cost.
