Anyone have any experience either upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8, or upgrading from Windows 8 to Windows 10? Care to share your experience, and which version you think is better? I've heard from multiple friends that Windows 7 is still the best Windows. I've been using 10 for a while now and I like the design overhaul, but can't say that it improves performance as much as it claims it does. There's also the possibility Microsoft is spying on us...  :steve: :steve: :steve:

7 was pretty strong. I really enjoyed the OS as it gave me 0 trouble.
8 was alright as well, it doesnt deserve all the hate that it got, one third party start menu tool and it was like a fresh 7
Ive had 0 problems with Windows 10, all that spying stuff is retarded anyway. To Microsoft you are just numbers making their products more custom tailored to us. I should be paid for sending my info away lol

I still give my reps to Windows 7, that was the best OS I've ever used. I do think they went way off mark with 8 and I hated it immensely. 10 is nowhere near as bad as 8, but it's not the bees knees either. At least they gave us our start menu back, and I think the Cortana feature is pretty pointless/useless when I can just search for whatever I need myself.

7 will forever be my baby until Microsoft decides to completely kill it like the older OS's.

I am dreading that day. I hope they don't do it, but I know at some point they probably will.

Windows xp is best. Although since that's not mentioned I'll go with windows 7.

I can never cease to be the point of origin from my perspective. I observe that which is not myself. This is the first principle to find." - Ergo Proxy

I used Windows 7 for many years(like most of us), Windows XP for many years before that(like most of us), and even a DOS version of Windows before that. But Windows 10 is really great - once you turn off all the privacy leaks(there are videos on YT that show how). It feels like a modified version of 7, though I think most standard users won't see much difference beyond the actual design. Power users will prefer 10, I think, because that's where the bulk of the good changes lie.

Honestly 10. I was a huge fan of 7, but then upgraded to 8.1 for performance reasons. I was hesitant at leaving 8.1 simply because I tried 10 when it first came out and was disgusted by it. Gave it another shot, and it is actually fairly good. I look forward to the Redstone update.

Just upgraded to 10 yesterday actually, and I'm kind of liking it so far, it's better than Windows 8 at least.
Had to disable like 10 settings though that gets all ur browsing and other shit sent to Microsoft

I've got to admit... For speed and actual daily use, Windows 10 is the best of them all.

I was against it but now I absolutely love it!

They're gonna know what you do regardless if you're not using Tails or something to block them...  :noship:
