    Windows 10 x64 Home Version(1709) Build16299.19

    I for one was a beta tester on Windows 7 and Vista and to tell you the truth I hated both.
    Windows 8 was not much better it improved with 8.1 but now 10 is here I can say with all honesty at last they have got it right, not perfect but getting there, and I have found, that if you use the browser and antivirus that comes with it, you should have trouble free computering.
    All 8 systems that I look after have all been running fast and no freezes since using Windows 10
    The only 2 Third party apps I have on all the systems is CCleaner and Auslogics

    win 10

    I would say most people on this forum on a regular basis were beta testers for w7. It was IMHO when it came out an awesome OS right out of the box. I remember looking forward to the new builds all the time.

    I have many friends still on w7 and they have no love for w10 at all. They will be dragged kicking and screaming to 10 for sure.

    There will likely be a lot of people that will just keep on using it regardless. It's happened in the past with XP etc. They won't switch until they have to buy a new PC. Some will keep on hating Windows 10 and some will get used to it and move on. There is nothing I can't do in 10 that I did in 7. I have simple needs though. I'm retired and don't have a whole lot of software installed. Office and some games. Now that I have an XBOX I hardly ever game on my PC.

    Even on Windows 10, Classic Shell is a must. Cannot stand the lack of submenu folders and poor keyboard navigation of the 10 "menu".

    For some maybe? I don't use Classic Shell and have no problems finding what I want, or have any issues navigating the Start Menu? I pin what I use every day to my taskbar. Other frequently used Programs are on my Start Screen. The rest I just use Search to find quickly, or right click the Start Button for the quick use menu.

    I opted for Start 10, it offers a variety layouts, and I think it simulates 7 more than Classic Shell, but that is just me.

    I have a PS4 and do the same, all my PC games are now very old , Microsoft has again made it too late to the party I think. Sitting on a nice soft chair with a Controller and a beer is way more fun than being sat at the PC.

    I'm not all that fussy for using the game controller. Don't have a choice though. In the summer I stream a few games to my laptop via the XBOX App and play them out on my deck. Can't do that in Windows 7. My XBOX ONE is in my bedroom so I just stretch out on my bed propped up with a couple of pillows and relax.

    I'm keeping a nice HP Tower running, have a WinXP Tower available with the older drives to accommodate clients that find floppies and Zip drives and want the files. I've moved most of my computers, both Desktop and Notebook, to Win10, finally decided to junk a Notebook that can't run Win10 due to no drivers for the video adapter.

    I have a USB floppy drive but can't say I've actually used it much. A couple times when I first bought it many years ago. I have a box of brand new never used floppies around somewhere too. Nostalgia I guess, lol. I have a USB Lightscrib DVD burner too. I don't bother putting optical drives in my towers. I do all my installs from thumb drives these days. I only use it for installing a few games that are on disk. I don't watch movies etc on my PC so I don't bother installing a dedicated optical drive.
    lol, I can remember having a 2 floppy drives installed, and a reader and burner optical drive installed. And if you were lucky 2 hard drives. Those 19 inch CRT monitors were fun to move around too.
