Windows 10

Microsoft is very anxious to get you to upgrade your Windows 7 or 8 computers to Windows 10.

I do not recommend or supporting Windows 10, and will not support it.

Two major drawbacks to Windows 10

  1. There is no privacy.  Everything on your Windows 10 PC is fair game.
  2. As owner of your PC, you have no control over what ever updates (read changes) Microsoft chooses to install.  Especially considering Microsoft’s terrible Windows Updates of late, this is unacceptable.

Microsoft has brought to market an unfinished product that is full of gaps and issues.  Not ready for prime time.  On top of that, their work quality has fallen off to unacceptable

Windows 7 is the gold standard and in use by over half of the 1.5 billion computers in the world.  Windows 10 will have to be distinctively superior if it is to be very successful.

There is no reason at all to rush to get Windows 10.  Windows 7 has committed support through January 2020.  Chances are, you will get it when you buy a new computer.

I have concluded that Windows 7 is the LAST Windows version I will ever use or service.  Having cut off all Microsoft Updating, I expect Windows 7 systems to continue to run for a number of years.  The only thing that should make it unusable will be hardware failure or refusal of other software suppliers to support the platform.  I do not expect that to happen for a long time.
