Windows 7 users, will you be upgrading to Windows 10, switching to Linux or Mac, or just keeping what you have?


I'm going to keep Windows 7 because I have a lot of software that I don't want to pay to replace but for surfing the Internet I will loading Linux onto a virtual machine, either VirtualBox or VMWare.

    I had Win 7 but switched to Linux Mint. After ten years using Mint I have now switched to using MX Linux which I find faster and easier.

    Just upgraded to Windows 10. I hung on to Windows 7 on our last computer because of the Media Center Guide that they discontinued Jan 1st. I now use Plex on Windows 10. I mostly use Linux when I need a server of some kind.

    Upgraded to 10 ages ago, there is absolutely no point in sitting on 7, which is far slower due to the kernel and outdated DirectX 11.

    Haven't owned a Win 7 box in almost 10 years. I prefer to keep my hardware up to date.
