    Later versions are bloated with unnecessary features.

    Your totally wrong about Windows 10.  It does not have any Malware.

    I have been using Windows 10 since day one and find it one of the best Operating Systems Microsoft has come out with.  If you have Malware on Windows 10 you allowed it to happen or put it their yourself.   I run a Program Called Malwarebytes that keeps the junk out.  I also run Windows Security, the Built In Anti Virus Program.

    Who ever is telling you stories about Windows 10 is wrong.

    Not really. All they have done is no longer support a very old version of Windows dating back about 15 years, Technology and computers have moved on a lot since then.

    You don't even have to use Win 8 or 10, you could learn Linux instead, it's easy enough.

    Much as would like to read your blog, if you have a question we’d love to read it. 

    Simply adding a question mark to a statement doesn’t make it a question

    An interrogative word or question word is a function word used to ask a question, such as what, when, where, who, whom, why, and how. They are sometimes called wh-words, because in English most of them start with wh-.

    If you want to chat (or rant in your case) go to the chat groups on yahoo not here.

    Obvious troll is obvious. Anyone with half a brain knows Win 10 is WAY more secure from Malware or viruses then their predecessors.

    1. there are no programs that are win 10 incompatible (that are not manufacturer bloatware and thus useless)

    2. windows 10 is SIGNIFICANTLY more secure than win 7 or 8. 

    3. they are not forcing you to do anything, but long term support of 7 will cost money (lots) or you will have an increasingly insecure system.

      @robertj unless you are running the old 2015 version of windows 10 you can disable all data being sent to microsoft with a few simple registry changes or menu changes we have a script to push that out to each windows 10 machine that we image..

    They are not forcing you to do anything, they just won't release security updates and browser updates for Windows 7. Companies like Google will also stop releasing core software like Chrome for Windows 7 within the next year.   Windows 7 is unfortunately very vulnerable to all the malware that can infect windows 10\8 and a lot more, so you have been misinformed as far as malware goes.

    Cant keep supporting old versions forever.

    • But You CAN include an optional Widows VM app & activation key that can be used to run anything that doesn't work - that You've already bought once at exorbitant prices for an older OS.
