    I might do that as well but I would have to add on Classic Shell to make 8.1 usable.
    I used Classic Shell with 8.1 and am also using it with 10. So I'm really not seeing a lot of difference in day-to-day use of the two.

    See, I like the Start Screen. I'm actually a bit peeved that they changed it and added the Start Menu into Windows 10. I liked it better the other way. I'm in the minority on that though, I think?
    I don't mind the start screen it's I'm so used to the menu.

    I wouldn't pay a subscription for Windows 10, I would for 7 or 8. I am with alphanumeric on this one, I much prefer the Start Screen.

    I am also with Jimbo, I have stopped most subscriptions, even my Office 365, cut about $100 US a month, it adds up real quick.

    All of my Windows are currently bought and paid for, I will just keep using those.

    Ah, I think you are confused? I prefer the Start Screen, I don't like the Start Menu at all. I have absolutely no interest in ever going back to Windows 7.

    LOL yes I misstated that, I think I knew what you meant though, I have edited my post to reflect that, thanks.

    Well after thinking about this, you were referring to the Start Screen of Windows 8 or are you referring to Windows 10 (Start Menu/Screen whatever it is)? Personally I like the combo of 7 & 8 and not Windows 10 choice at all.

    I would consider going back to a Mac, or Chrome OS, or even maybe Android,Linux.

    I'll ditch Windows faster than I click the Yes button if MS makes me pay for subscription. It's not going to happen.

    I am used to Android and I don't mind Linux.

    Same here pretty much. I would go back to 8.1 in a heart beat!

    I would strongly consider going back to 7.
    Admit It, you like Win 10 to much to go back. :) And so do I. On some of my computers I couldn't go back because they came with Win 10 pre-installed. I don't see that much of a difference between buying a new Windows OS when it's released or paying for yearly upgrades. Upgrades, not updates.
