Using Win7 on 2 desktops.
The main computer using Win7 for games and Linux Mint 18.1 for online banking and other serious stuff as well as photo editing with Gimp and Video editing with Pitvi (and other Linux video editing software).

The other is sitting in the TV-bench (Living room), also using Win7 64-bit for games, but dual booting Ubuntu Studio for mostly HTPC-stuff.

Favorite game is SuperTuxKart and I can't decide if the Linux version is better than the Windows one, or vice versa.

Latest computer part bought was WD 240GB Green PC SSD for a (retired) computer (A10-5700 cpu mitx MB from 2012) running WinXP 32-bit!
The WinXP and SSD is a great combination for older, weaker computers.

All other computers running Linux Mint as the only OS, tablets and phones runs Android...

Simply don't want Microsoft OS:es after Win7, maybe MS Win11? will be the OS that is worth considering as a Win7 replacement.

i have ditched 7 for 10 and haven't looked back. 10 for me does what needs and performance is good.
I say if you don't need or want to move on from 7 then stay on that OS. It was a great OS...

I have two systems that run Windows 7. Both run it exclusively for Windows Media Center. Wish I could run something else but Media Center is the only tool available to watch DRM protected cable card content from my HD Homerun Prime. Everything else is on Windows 10.

Windows 7 minus the spyware updates.

I wont touch W10, to much snooping. And even with a W7 interface mod, there still things about it i dont like.

W8 to W10 just dont feel like a proper OS's to me, its 'too' user freindly, to the point alot of the technical stuff is hidden away.

Hate that DX12 is W10 only, that was a real dick move, obviose why they done it ,, which just annoyed me more. May look to a different OS eventauly, one that isnt microsoft.

I run Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2 on most of my systems.

I do have Server 2016 on my BW-E setup which is acceptable, but Windows 10 itself is so loaded with garbage that I find configuring and using it almost intolerable.

Fortunately, I have enough Server 2016 licences to cover all of the systems I'm likely to actually need the newer Windows builds for.
