Out of all the Windows versions, Vista had the most problems but I still think it was a good OS.

Windows 10 has worked pretty well for me and I like the idea of setting IE aside and replacing it with Edge. Best road Microsoft could take to compete with Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

Yeah, edge is pretty annoying. The desktop is much easier to get to at least.
Just your average user...

Edge is pretty useful for touch screen laptops/displays with the sketching feature. I too am a fan of the Windows 10 desktop, it's a mix of Windows 7 and 8, plus it allows for multiple desktops.

I think it's a great update to Windows 8. The problem with Windows 8 it was too user friendly and complicated for some. If you don't have the update yet I would upgrade, otherwise you'll regret it when you can't upgrade for free anymore.

I'm so tired of those Win 10-windows opening just to annoy me, can't await July 29, especially that new blue screen Win 7 and 8 users get when they turn on their computer, wtf Microsoft!?

My laptop had Windows 7 Ultimate and it literally forced an update to Windows 10 without warning. I turned it on and it started updating without even asking me. At least I don't have too much of a problem with Windows 10, which is why I didn't bother to stop the update, but still.

I hope that doesn't happen to me, but I always turn Automtic Updates off so it probably won't.

A blue screen appears when you start your computer running on Win 7/8 which says that you should definitely update to Windows 10 now.
Maybe not at everyone but already twice at me...

I'm fine with Windows 7 to be honest and so far as of what I've seen and heard about Win10, it looks alright but I heard a bunch of stuff relative to securities and such... but as of now I'm not gonna update it since Windows 7 is as fine as it is.

Even if that's true (it really isn't, though this isn't new to Windows 10), it doesn't make it right for Microsoft to assert power over users and force them to install it. (Further, it's unjust that Windows gives Microsoft that power to begin with.)

Yeah, it isn't that bad but I hate the design and design is really important for me, so I'll stay at Windows 7.
When I buy a new laptop, I'll take Windows 10 or maybe Windows 8.1 because I like that much more

What I like about Windows 10 is that it improved my computer's speed, when I upgraded from Windows 8.

Maybe I should be lucky that Windows Update is broken on both my desktop and laptop computer (fortunately, my virus protection software still keeps up to date). I have Windows 7 on both.

That is... weird. I wonder how it broke. Does it not automatically update on both anymore?


Just a hint, yes, Windows 10 can still be downloaded... (so much for English in this image):

Windows 10 can be downloaded until July 29 for free.

But: If you have already updated to Windows 10 but switched back to 7/8.1 within a month, your product key can still activate Windows 10 even after July 29, so you have Windows 10 for free forever.

And what happens if it's after July 29? Do you have to pay for it or what...

If you have already updated, you don't have to pay something.

But if you're still on Windows 7 or 8.1 and haven't ever updated, you have to pay. But an activation key for Windows isn't that expensive.
If you've updated to 10 and switched back, it's for free even after July 29. So Windows 7 users can switch in 2020, when support ends for their OS.
