Spieler4 I would try both OS out and compare if possible

Both my multiboot i7 setups - win7 gives better results in benchmark tests 3dmark,passmark,
Win 10 give higher fps in some games, but Win 7 gives me higher min(fps), less lag/stutter,fps dips
Also mouse feeling is not the same

Will stay with Win 7 as long as possible :-)

I agree

I have 13 workstations with Win 7x64 that are working great and I'm not planing on moving to windows 10 for years if ever.

I have tried Win 10 Pro for Workstation which have few benefit but nothing big opposed to windows home and Pro and after 2 weeks of playing around I've had it, there are so many issues, if not at first, MS will come up with some to make your life and experience miserable.

Even after altering some of the reg. MS sneaks in the background poking your system the way they want it and unless you have firewall with decent leak protection you would never know thins.

Updates! your system can run as smooth as can be until ugly update messing you up.

Settings! I've know this that regardless, some of the settings reverts back to defaults, even if you change them.

I think Windows 10 might be worse than Vista which was failure of OS

As far is security goes! In my opinion, the way MS dictating you and the way updates are screwing your system most of the time, I think you more venerable then being on Win 7 but that's how I see it.

FYI. Heck I still have few Win XP that are sharing files over my home and office network and still working great without any breaches whatsoever, keep your hardware and software firewall tight and its all good.

PAE never helped w/Windows XP Pro, you still can't address anything greater than 4 GiB.

I haven't used it outside of a few VMs and an old Netbook in more than a decade because it's quite obsolete for many of my uses. 32-bit, limit of two logical processors, 4GiB of memory without PAE, hasn't been updated in years, etc.

My point was that, as far as I am concerned, the usability of Windows peaked with 2k, and everything after it hasn't felt like an upgrade, just things I grudgingly tolerate when an new version becomes a necessity. More recent versions of Windows go far beyond what I find it reasonable for the OS to do...the whole Windows as an experience, and later as a service, are exactly the opposite directions I would have wanted to go.

I honestly do not require all the extra bits and pieces Windows 10 comes with and prefer a much more slim OS. I use NTLite to create a cleaned ISO of the OS, remove all the clutter and un-needed features as well as pre-reconfigure and automate the install process. Once you do that you can virtually take Windows 10 back to the more streamlined Windows 7 people love.
I dabbled in custom .ISO before finding O&O ShutUp, I found that it was capable of everything I was trying to do. Both are a great way to take the reins back from Microsoft.

andrews2547 Windows 7 is 10 years old next month and Microsoft are dropping support in a few months. Unless you need it for compatibility reasons, there's no point going to Windows 7.
