    I don't understand why everybody is kicking Vista. I think it was a good OS that never gave me any problems. There were a few glitches with the device drivers, but that cannot be held against the OS.

    Hi there

    the main trouble with it was that people were "gimicked" into using it on basically inadequate hardware -- if you run it on a modern decently specced Vm it works fiine -- and two things I still like about Vista -- Aero Glass and the idea of gadgets. The current tiles on W10 just aren't the same.

    Cheers

    Actually I don't see why anyone would consider Android to be a valid operating system. unfortunately I have an android phone and an android tablet. Android 4.4 kit kat has come a long way from android 2.2 but it is no where near as user friendly or stable as ios.
    In all fairness, you're using an old version, Kitkat is nearly two and a half years old. The current version is 6.0.1 and it's very stable and user friendly.

    I totally agree. When I used it I have zero issues. The problems I did encounter were with a driver issue for a sound card and I had a little issue finding a decent free CD burner software. But that really isn't MS's fault.

    Is that sarcasm, because there's no way 7 is faster than 10, I've got it on 4 computers to prove it. 7 slows down like a dog when you start loading heaps of programmes on it, and so far I haven't noticed any slowdown on Windows 10.

    I don't think it was sarcasm at all , lots and lots of people who have tried Win 10 think Win 7 runs faster and is just a better OS all around , the percentage of users staying with 7 even though Win 10 is free indicates that as well .

    I tried Win 10 for 6 weeks , it ran well but my Win 7 runs better and doesn't contain all that extra stuff that i know i will never use and MS makes it overly difficult to remove all the stuff people don't want as well .

    They allow easy uninstall for only certain programs but remove the uninstall option for others they don't want you to uninstall , much less user control with Win 10 than Win 7 .

    Very happy for you that Win 10 runs better on your machines but it is not the case with everybody by any means even with a clean install.

    I am not certain about the speed, but Win7 is definitely a better OS. MS will have to do a lot of homework before Win10 is ready for prime time.

    Keep in mind not everyone shares the same view. I think that 10 is as good as 7 and is ready for primetime.

    Speed is different and varies a lot between each individuals setup so no surprise there , i did not think Win 10 was faster for me but others say they think it is .

    I agree 100% about Win 10 needing lots and lots of work to get close to Win 7 as a polished OS .

    Noted but how anyone would think 10 is even remotely close to 7 is beyond me lol. If 10 ever does become close to 7 there will be a lot more people willing to migrate.

    Simply because it is. It's stable and fast. Has a nice start menu and all of the programs/apps run fine. Why do you think that 7 is so much better and faster??
