So Microdick Wangblows 7 Professional/Enterprise will get paid extended support until 2023. I'll be holding onto my Win7 Pro install at least until then to see what's up. My machine should last until then, 4th gen i7 OC at 4.8GHz, 16GB DDR3 2400MHz 11CL with a nvme 4x C drive.

Who else holding out on /g/?

My machine at work is running 10, but everything about the os is fractured because of the "unified system" meme. Almost all the old DEAKTOP features/tools are there but hidden behind the TABLET interface tools and features. The UI is fundamentally broken and Explorer is more infuriating to use than ever.

Of course it is, Vista is way more complex. That's like saying Windows 95 is better than XP because it runs better on the same hardware. The whole Vista issue happened because it was a buggy piece of shit (addressed with Windows 7), manufactures were shipping it with shit hardware (integrated graphics couldn't handle desktop composition well) and hardware manufactures were making shit drivers that barely worked, which forced Microsoft to invest hard in WHQL.

Except they don't allow you to disable updates, only defer updates for 3 months then they're automatically downloaded and installed without you needing to even click "Ok". I wouldn't care so much if this only happens for security updates but this applies to any and all updates ever.
