    I do remember Vista being the worst.
    Vista was just like 7 - except for people with low grade PC hardware (which there were a lot of at the time of Vista's release).

    Hmm do you think Vista was a rush release of 7, I bought a Laptop with Vista pre installed and within a week put on XP worked much better and much faster. I have been running OS's since Windows 95 and the keepers were 95,98,XP,7 and now at this moment in time 10.

    u use uac can be a bit annoying but in a sense its good cause it will make the normal people think for a second wait I'm installing something what is it. that what in the sense its suppose to do. me i actually have a admin account i don't use and then i use a standard user account so even if i let someone else use my PC they cant install anything they need the password. i do this to alot of my friends computer who aren't computer savvy so then i install what they want remotely with team viewer gotta be approved by me and i do this with my parents computer and you know what i spend less time fixing them from tools malware and virus's

    One thing changes. We get older!

    Throughout life, intelligent beings consider a Cost-benefit-ratio to every action. With age, the application of that ratio changes considerably as it applies to software upgrades, because you can minimize the old cost by sticking with the old. You just keep on doing what you have already invested the time learning. As you get really old, you decrease the benefit of upgrades, because you have less time to realize those benefits.
    I skipped Win 8, because there were few benefits for me, and considerable cost of time, and some money.
    I did 7 because the machine came with Vista and I was already stuck with cost of changes.
    I had another machine with ME, but I had done the homework and formatted to XP at first turn on.
    I updated a second-hand machine to Win2k server (Think it was a 95 befoer that)
    I "upgraded" a machine from OS/2 to NT for company compatibility (Still runs, but I miss OS/2)
    ... ... ... several others that I have forgotten details on ... ... ...
    Built my first (a Poly-88) in 1977 and upgraded it to CP/M

    So, I and perhaps a few others, have considerable investment in learning these little tools of the Devil used to work. And at every significant change, you find that part of "common sense" has dissappeared. (How do you right-click a touch screen? I guess it is easier for Mac users, they never had a RMB)

    And Microsoft is stuck with mostly old guys, because the new generation is all into phones and tablets where MS is late to the party. So, while there are a few of us still in the market, just maybe MS should consider investing in their legacy. Build a Windows2020. They could even sell it! An OS that has all the new features (particularly speed and security), but has a choice at every click, to preserve the old feel. And get away from that stupid beige everywhere!

    OK, A good vent always makes me feel better. Maybe I will give 10 a little more of a try.

    I agree, if you an average home user and not running a lot of fancy audio software and the such then windows 10 is for sure an upgrade over windows 8, give it chance, it will grow on you like a fungus, lol.

    Exactly. A large portion of the people complain anytime something changes, while another large portion would complain if nothing changes, claiming that Microsoft isn't innovating.

    That's why the we see the needless array of people creating threads just to say they don't like 10. Some people just won't adjust to anything new.
