I liked Windows 7, but noticed that updates became a nightmare, the apparent push to Windows 10. The WU update right after SP1 was the initial source of misery. An update should fix a problem, not create one. The only way to keep Windows 7 good is to keep a good image of it with all KB updates installed. A clean install requires all KB updates to be stored offline.So windows 7 has been out for a good while how would you rate it. Do you love it, like it, 50/50, dislike it or wish I never installed it. So far I have had few too no problems with 7 it is so much better than vista I have to say i love it.
I agree in full, look at all of that cash poured into Windows 8 & 8.1 (or W8 SP1) & how much of that was like filling water into a cup with a hole in the bottom. When with a fraction of that cash, could had at least gave Windows 7 users SP2. How did Microsoft manage to ignore their largest customer base & still is today & survive, is the million dollar question.There is and never will be any OS better than Windows 7. Microsoft made one grand mistake when they decided to let Win 7 fly by. All they could or should have done is....just improve it.. That's all.
And the newer computers are also more energy efficient while more powerful than ever.The hardware improvements today are much smaller than in the past.
