    Over a decade later, Windows 7 still tops in the most-stable OS I have ever used even in today. Windows 10 just cannot do it unless you start using LTSC.
    Hi,
    Indeed
    7 is effortless it's like the energizer bunny as long as you keep the nonsense ms updates off of it.

    The thing that still floors me, even to this day, is when, a user comes on here and asks "How do you accomplish such and such in Windows 10?",
    the answer is usually... "Here's a reg hack" or "Download this 3rd party utility" or "Enable the Classic Control Panel, it's better", on and on and on......

    If Windows 10 is allegedly the greatest thing since the advent of air, this should not be so!

    We're running it at work. I think for me I'm not big on the UI appearance (the title bar and window shape look kludgy), and that Start Menu is really just a windowed start screen. So I think appearance is my biggest issue. Next all of the UWP replacements for Control Panel applets are yecch. It amazes me that EVERYONE hated Windows 8x and its Metro aspects, but yet they all love 10, which offends in the same way and worse.

    Next, you perform customization to conceal these "issues", and the next feature update blows them away.

    I'm glad I stuck with Windows 8. The only issue there is that the DM "Eight Forums" have no active or inquisitive users wanting to actually discuss Windows 8.1. It's all littered with "How do I get to Windows 10" topics, and that's what THIS forum is for. Whenever I try to bring any topics of attention that relate to Windows 8.1 (like the Chromium Edge release), nothing - just crickets.

    Cheers All
    Hi there

    Obviously if you are still using W8 you don't run complex apps on multi-monitors --e.g complex exploded 3-D Engineering / architectural blueprints, complex Stock exchange trading systems, etc --without a decent cascading menuing system these would be well nigh impossible to run.

    Cheers
