[BlogGSMArena] Windows 7 “mainstream support” ends tomorrow - Page 7

post #61 of 176
I don't know why people still hate Windows 8/8.1 but i got a solution for you all.

If you don't want move to the latest Operation system,it's fine. Nobody is stopping you from using Windows 7. If you hate Microsoft for loving Windows 8 users more,Plz i say again plz move to linux.You will be doing our gaming community a lot of favor instead of dragging us coz u can't find a "Start Menu" program online or you can't find a skin.

I can live with no real "upgrades" to W7. I probably won't rebuild until after 10 is available anyway. I've tried 8 but it's just, so, meh.

most big businesses I know use windows xp which as we know has no more updates. every mcdonalds in my country uses windows xp

Why should I upgrade if windows 7 has never given me any issues and remains still 100% stable?

"please move to linux"
What kind of garbage is that? Explain yourself.


Sounds like someone is a little butthurt that a person wont switch to 8 since 7 is working perfect on his/her system. Maybe you had some sort of issue that caused you to upgrade, I dont know/care

99% of windows 8 users are on prebuilt systems anyways, probably from walmart or bestbuy, or online retailers. This computer forum still only encompasses MAYBE 5% of computer users of the world. These numbers are simply guesses, but I imagine they are close to the real numbers. My point is, all the computer guys and gals I know personally, only 3 of them are on this forum, and all but one or two are on 7. Those on 8 bought it because they were overly worried about losing security update support..

Also, for your "gaming community" comment. Last time I checked, all currently offered modern games still mark themselves as 7 compatible. Find me a game that is ONLY 8 capable.

Sounds like someone is a little butthurt that a person wont switch to 8 since 7 is working perfect on his/her system. Maybe you had some sort of issue that caused you to upgrade, I dont know/care

99% of windows 8 users are on prebuilt systems anyways, probably from walmart or bestbuy, or online retailers. This computer forum still only encompasses MAYBE 5% of computer users of the world. These numbers are simply guesses, but I imagine they are close to the real numbers. My point is, all the computer guys and gals I know personally, only 3 of them are on this forum, and all but one or two are on 7. Those on 8 bought it because they were overly worried about losing security update support..

Also, for your "gaming community" comment. Last time I checked, all currently offered modern games still mark themselves as 7 compatible. Find me a game that is ONLY 8 capable.

As I already said if you find Windows 7 stable keep that but I can't tolerate people always whine Windows 8 this Windows 8 that.....

I'm not a fan boy of Windows 8 but I'm smart, it runs perfectly stable for me and more it's way faster.

99% of Windows 8 users are prebuilt?? So does Windows 7.
A lot a people I know use Windows 8.1 than Windows 7 for their Home PC.

As for games they have to indicate it's Windows 7 compatible but all games basically built for Windows 8.

My gripe is windows 8 did not need to be a separate system.



I feel it is like the automotive world. As a mechanic it is preferable that a manufacturer maintains a car generation for more then only a few years. It prevents having to get new supporting software diagnostics and tools.

This is why I tend to be holding on to stable systems for as long as possible. I would be on windows xp right now if my current hardware supported it, but then even if it did, windows 7 takes much more advantage of it. Windows 8 did not have any noticeable advantage on my current hardware
