    Is it too old an OS & with trouble getting drivers working for most modern hardware? Can you play most high end games with high end gpu's no problems? Or do you need specific windows 8 only stuff?

  2. Windows 7 SP1 x64 is fully supported on the latest hardware. The only thing you may miss in Windows 7 (and Windows 8) is DirectX 12 which is exclusive feature on Windows 10. But at the time of writing there are no games with DX12 support.

    I run W7 64 and W7 32 bit on 9 computers here and I vastly prefer it to W8, 8.1, and 10 for my uses.

    I will stay with Windows 7 for now. Too much of my software will not run on it. Not looking forward to a big redo on three networked computers

    I use it professionally and love it, does everything I need it to. New unopened copies of windows 8 upgrades are patiently sitting on the shelf, waiting their turn, and they may sit there forever for all I care.

    I have win 8 on a new laptop, and have found no advantage.

  6. Win10 is just a dumbed down win7 with gazilions of snifers and keyloggers preinstalled.

    Do not worry about lack of DX12 in older oses. Vulkan API will solve this issue in next year.

    For 2016 games + console connections go to Win 10.

    For others go to Win 7.

    I have lost faith in modern PC gaming, Id prefer to go console nowadays. It's all watered down multiplat redos on PC.

    I will stay with the older OS as long as I can unless games start looking like that jungle tech demo gdc 2010 & have the gameplay & story of games from the late 90's early 2000's

  9. I'm sticking with my Commodore 64 and CRT monitor, these modern computers offer no advantage, I use DOS 6.2 on my main computer because I don't think Windows 3 is ever going to catch on.
    It's not important the problem be solved, only that the blame for the mistake is assigned correctly

    Wait for Windows 3.1, It's due to come out soon.

  11. I've got my eye on Windows 3.1, I'm still not convinced the GUI will ever take off.
